Actor Chris Noth, known for his role on the series Sex in New York and who participates in the newly released sequel And just like that…, has been accused of sexually assaulting two women. The complaint transcends through the specialized medium The Hollywood Reporter. According to this outlet, the complaints arrived months apart and the women who filed them are unknown. One of the complainants indicates that she was sexually assaulted in Los Angeles in 2004 and the other, in New York in 2015. “The accusations against me made by people I knew years ago, even decades, are categorically false,” responds the American actor 67, in a statement sent to the media.

The Hollywood Reporter it keeps whistleblowers anonymous to protect them from repercussions: one of them is a journalist and another works in the entertainment industry. The media’s information does not clarify whether these complaints have also been filed at the judicial or police level.

The one denouncing the 2004 assault explains that Noth raped her when she was 22 years old (he was 50). She worked in a company with which the actor had business relationships. “He would walk past my desk and flirt with me. Somehow he got my number from the directory and left messages for me on my work phone. My boss told me: “Mr. Big [su personaje en Sexo en Nueva York] he’s leaving messages on your voicemail, ”he says. That boss has confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that he saw Noth talking to the complainant. There came a time when he invited her to a pool in the building where the actor lived, to which she went with a friend. With the excuse of lending him a book to later return it to him, Noth managed to get the victim into his apartment. The Hollywood Reporter She explains that as soon as she entered Noth kissed her, which she did not reject. “Thanks, I’m going back to my friend,” she said after the kiss. But then he grabbed her, threw her against the bed, took off her pants and bikini, and raped her. “It was very painful. He screamed for him to stop, but he didn’t. I asked him to at least put a condom on, but he laughed at me. “

The 2015 complainant worked at a nightclub that Noth attended. She was 25 and he was 60. They went on a date, which ended at the actor’s apartment. She tried to reject him by reminding him that he was married and had a son. When the sexual relations began, the complainant “was like crying while it happened.” When he finished, “I went to the bathroom and put on my skirt. I felt terrible, totally violated ”. The complainant assures that the attack took place in front of a mirror, a circumstance that also indicates that of 2004.

The two complainants explain that the actor’s return to the media for the premiere of And just like that… encouraged them to tell their stories. The emergence of the MeToo movement in the United States in 2017, following accounts of sexual assaults by the all-powerful producer Harvey Weinstein, has helped many women dare to report the sexual violence they have suffered.

In a statement sent to The Hollywood Reporter, Noth says that the accusations against him are false. “These stories could be from 30 years ago or 30 days ago. It doesn’t always mean no, a line I’ve never crossed. The meetings were consensual. It’s hard not to question when these stories come to light. I don’t know for sure why they go out now, but I do know this: I did not attack these women.
