Note: The following article contains discussion of sexual misconduct allegations that some readers may find upsetting.

Sex and the City stars Cynthia Nixon, Kristin Davis and Sarah Jessica Parker have shared their response to the sexual assault allegations recently levelled at their co-star Chris Noth.

Shortly after his character Mr. Big's onscreen death in the HBO show's reboot And Just Like That... recently, two women accused Noth of indecent acts via an article published by The Hollywood Reporter last week.

A few days later, a third woman spoke out against him, claiming she had been assaulted by the star inside a restaurant when she was 18 years old. Noth has denied the allegations made against him.

"We are deeply saddened to hear the allegations against Chris Noth. We support the women who have come forward and shared their painful experiences," Nixon, Davis and Parker's joint statement read, which they shared on their social media platforms today (December 21).

"We know it must be a very difficult thing to do and we commend them for it."

In The Hollywood Reporter's account, one of the women, who spoke under the pseudonym Zoe, alleged she was raped by Noth in a Los Angeles apartment in 2004. The second, using the pseudonym Lily, claimed she was assaulted in his NYC apartment in 2015.

Addressing the claims, Noth said: "The accusations against me made by individuals I met years, even decades, ago are categorically false.

"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. 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."
