One week after making headlines for his brief reprisal in the Sex and the City reboot, Chris Noth has been accused of sexual assault.
Two women came forward and made the allegations against the actor to The Hollywood Reporter on Thursday, saying that promos for And Just Like That triggered them.
One woman, who goes by Zoe in the report, alleged that after meeting him at a high-profile firm in 2004 she went back to his apartment where Noth proceeded to “rape her from behind.”
Zoe claimed he “laughed” when she asked him to put on a condom during the “painful” experience.
“I realized there was blood on my shirt. I got out of there. I went to my friend’s apartment (in the same building),” she told the outlet, adding she went to the hospital after the alleged incident.
“I had stitches. Two police officers came. I wouldn’t say who it was.”
The second woman, Lily, told THR she was 25 and working as a server at a New York City nightclub in 2015 when she allegedly met Noth, who invited her to his apartment after a night of drinking.
“He said marriage is a sham. Monogamy is not real,” Lily recalled, claiming the next thing she knew, Noth “was having sex with me from the back in a chair. We were in front of a mirror. I was kind of crying as it happened.”
She said, “I went to the bathroom and put on my skirt. I was feeling awful. Totally violated. All of my dreams with this star I loved for years were gone.”

Noth, who began dating Tara Wilson in 2002 before they married 10 years later, responded to the accusations.
“The accusations against me made by individuals I met years, even decades, ago are categorically false,” the actor said in a statement. “These stories could’ve been from 30 years ago or 30 days ago — no always means no — that is a line I did not cross.”
He added: “The encounters were consensual. It’s difficult not to question the timing of these stories coming out. I don’t know for certain why they are surfacing now, but I do know this: I did not assault these women.”
