Chris Noth Has This To Say About Sarah Jessica Parker

Rumors have been swirling for years about the alleged feud between Kim Cattrall and Sarah Jessica Parker. In fact, many fans believe the real reason Cattrall refused to take part in HBO's "Sex and the City" reboot, "And Just Like That," was because she couldn't stand to be around Parker. However, series creator Michael Patrick King clarified, in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, "It never was on the radar as four because Kim Cattrall, for whatever reason, didn't want to play Samantha anymore while we were doing the [third] movie." 

Cattrall infamously told Piers Morgan the atmosphere on the "SATC" set was "toxic" thanks to the clique-y mentality of the other three stars. Per the Daily Mail, Cattrall took particular issue with Parker, whom she reasoned could've been "nicer." Moreover, a damning New York Post report claimed, "[Kim] feels she has been treated horribly by Sarah Jessica Parker for six years." Parker, for her part, has always maintained there's no bad blood between them, as she reiterated to Vulture in 2018. Now, Chris Noth is wading into the discourse. 

Chris Noth thinks people have the wrong idea about SJP

In a new interview with The Guardian, actor Chris Noth — who played Mr. Big opposite Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie Bradshaw, across six seasons of "Sex and the City," and who's reprising his role in "And Just Like That" — took aim at allegations about his co-star and long-time friend being a mean girl. Admitting to being "protective" over Parker, Noth said, "I have to tell you, I have absolutely no idea what [Kim Cattrall's] thinking is, or her emotions." Acknowledging how close he and Parker are, the actor argued,"[Cattrall's] descriptions of her don't even come close." 

He was quick to praise Cattrall's work as the legendary Samantha Jones but regardless, Noth felt, "I just wish that whole thing had never happened because it was sad and uncomfortable." Describing Parker as a "target," Noth revealed he wasn't impressed with the general backlash to her, noting, "I just don't like to see anyone talking down about SJ ... People can be nasty." 

As E! News reported, in 2018, Cattrall made it abundantly clear where she and Parker stood by lashing out after her former co-star expressed condolences over the death of Cattrall's brother. "Your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now," she wrote on Instagram at the time. "Let me make this VERY clear. (If I haven't already) You are not my family. You are not my friend."
