Sarah Jessica Parker 'feels she's let everyone down' amid Chris Noth allegations
Sarah Jessica Parker is ‘livid’ amid sexual assault allegations leveled at her And Just Like That co-star Chris Noth, and feels she’s ‘let everybody down’, according to reports.
Noth, who stars as Big in the Sex And The City spin-off, denied allegations of sexual assault by several women earlier this month; claims he has branded as ‘categorically false’.
Responding to the accusations, Parker, as well as cast members Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davies, issued a statement insisting they support the women who’ve come forward.
Now sources have claimed Parker is ‘heartbroken’ by the allegations and is ‘livid’ at the position it’s placed the show’s cast.
According to Us Weekly, a source said: ‘She is fiercely protective of Carrie Bradshaw and livid that she and everyone else at the show has been put into this position. It is not about the money, but rather her legacy. Carrie was all about helping women and now, under her watch, women are saying that they have been hurt.’
Adding Parker was ‘blindsided’ by the accusations and is still ‘processing’ them, they went on: ‘She takes the power of being Carrie Bradshaw very seriously. With great power comes great responsibility and although SJP knows this is about him, not her, she feels like she has let everyone down.’
In a report by The Hollywood Reporter, two women alleged Noth had sexually assaulted them more than 10 years apart.
In a statement to Metro.co.uk at the time of the first allegations, 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.
‘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.’
Another two women came forward after the initial report to allege they had been assaulted by the actor while Law and Order star Zoe Lister-Jones accused Noth of being a ‘sexual predator’.
Following the allegations, Parker, Nixon and Davis, who play Carrie, Miranda Hobbes and Charlotte York in the hit US show, acknowledged the difficulty of sharing the ‘painful experiences’.
In a post on social media they said: ‘We are deeply saddened to hear the allegations against Chris Noth.
‘We support the women who have come forward and shared their painful experiences.
‘We know it must be a very difficult thing for them to do and we commend them for it.’
Since the allegations, Noth has been dropped from his talent agency and was axed from The Equalizer.
Metro.co.uk contacted Parker’s rep for comment.
