HBO Max has officially pulled Chris Noth from the finale of 'And Just Like That.'
HBO Max's decision to scrap one of the final scenes, which Sarah Jessica Parker and Noth filmed together in Paris, comes three weeks after numerous sexual assault allegations were made against Noth. Following the allegations, which the actor denies, Noth was dropped from his talent agency, A3 Artists Agency, and fired from his role on CBS' The Equalizer. Entertainment Arts Research also withdrew a $12 million deal to acquire Noth's tequila brand Ambhar.
In December, two women accused Noth of sexual assault in separate incidents that happened over a decade apart. One woman alleged the actor sexually assaulted her in Los Angeles in 2004. The second woman, "Ava," separately alleged Noth sexually assaulted her in 2010 when she was 18 years old, and Noth was 55. A third woman alleged Noth sexually assaulted her at his New York apartment in 2015.
Noth said in a statement,
"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."
Hours later, actress Zoe Lister-Jones spoke out about her account of allegations against Noth, stating that he had been "consistently sexually inappropriate with a fellow female promoter" and alleged he was "drunk on set" while filming Law & Order.
