Yesterday, Chris Noth was under fire when two women came forward with claims that Noth sexually assaulted them on two separate occasions in 2004 and 2015. The Hollywood Reporter reported that the first woman alleged Noth raped her when she was 22 in his apartment. The second said that Noth "violated" her by forcing oral acts.
Noth responded to THR saying that these allegations are "categorically false", but Zoe Lister-Jones says she believes the women who have come forward and shared her own experience with the Sex and the City star.
Trouble in Hollywood for another #MeToo
Lister-Jones and Noth were acquainted when working on an episode of Law & Order, where Lister-Jones claimed Noth was not only drunk but acting very inappropriately toward her.
Lister-Jones wrote a statement on her Instagram recounting the events, and shares she believed the women who are claiming Noth took things way too far.
She started her statement by talking about the Sex and the City reboot.
"Last week my friend asked me how I felt about Mr. Big's death on And Just Like That..., and I said, honestly, I felt relieved," she wrote. "He asked why and I told him it was because I couldn't separate the actor from the man, and the man is a sexual predator."
The actress continued, "My friend was alarmed at my word choice. And to be honest so was I. I hadn't thought of this man for so many years, and yet there was a virility to my language that came from somewhere deep and buried."
Lister-Jones went on to share that in her early 20s she had been working in New York, at the Manhattan nightclub Noth owns.
She noted that the actor was "consistently sexually inappropriate with a fellow female promoter" when he did show up.
Lister-Jones also went on to share that when she was guest starring in Law & Order, Noth would stash alcohol on set, and drink in-between takes.
Lister-Jones alleged Noth "had a 22 oz. of beer under the table that he would drink in between takes" and that in one take, he got a little too close for comfort.
Lister-Jones added, "In one take he got close to me, sniffed my neck, and whispered, 'You smell good.' I didn't say anything. My friend at the club never said anything. It's so rare that we do."
Noth's representatives denied press requests to comment on the allegations.
