Hollywood actor Chris Noth of “Law & Order” and “Sex & The City” fame has been accused of sexual assault by yet another woman. The reprisal of Noth’s role as Mr. Big in “And Just Like That,” the “Sex & The City” sequel series, apparently fueled the accusation. 

The first two women to accuse Noth used pseudonyms in an article in The Hollywood Reporter, alleging the incidents occurred in Los Angeles in 2004 and in New York in 2015.

Noth Accused Of Sexual Assault

A 30-year-old tech executive who spoke under the pseudonym of Ava told The Daily Beast that Noth forced himself on her in the back office of a New York City restaurant in 2010.

“At first, it felt as though I was the only person in the universe who could hear me saying no,” she claimed. 

Ava explained that she decided to come forward with her story after The Hollywood Reporter published the allegations of two other women last week.

At the time of her alleged assault, Ava was 18 years old and working as a hostess and show-tune singer at Da Marino, an Italian restaurant on 49th Street near Times Square, while she tried to launch an acting career.

Ava Describes Alleged Assault 

Ava recalled that Noth, who was 55 at the time, came to the restaurant quite often and was typically drunk, and they would sing together. On the night in question, Ava said that she sat down with Noth at his table to discuss her career and hometown of Toronto.

“I love Canadian women,” Noth repeatedly allegedly told her as he pulled her onto his lap and began “pressing me onto his erection.”

At around 1 in the morning, once the restaurant was closed, Ava’s manager told her that he would pay her in his office in the back. As she grabbed her money and her coat, Noth appeared and shut off the lights in the office behind her. 

“He acted as if we had intentionally snuck off together clandestinely,” she recounted, describing Noth as “sloppy,” “heavy” and “strong.”

She claims that he kissed her in the office and pushed her onto a desk. When Noth tried to penetrate Ava with his fingers and felt her tampon, she said she “was so hopeful that would be the end of it.”

However, Noth instead simply asked if she was at the end of her period and kept on going. She finally was able to get into a chair and push Noth back with her arms and legs. 

“He wasn’t hearing ‘no,’ but he heard me when I said ‘not here’ and convinced him that I would meet him somewhere else,” she stated.

Ava Manages To Get Away 

Ava claims that she was able to get the assault to end by convincing Noth they would meet up somewhere else. He texted her afterwards asking for her address so he could send a car for her, but she never responded.

Noth has fired back through a representative who dismissed Ava’s claims as “a complete fabrication.”

“The alleged accounts detailed throughout read like a piece of bad fiction,” a rep told Page Six in a statement. “Chris has no knowledge of who this individual is and, as stated yesterday, has and would never cross that line.”

Noth Dropped By Talent Agency

He was also recently dropped from his talent agency,  A3 Artists Agency, amid the assault accusations. “I can confirm that Chris Noth is no longer a client of A3 Artists Agency,” a spokesperson for the bicoastal outfit told The Times on Monday.

And, Noth’s deal to sell his tequila brand Ambhar to Entertainment Arts Research, Inc. (EARI) is not moving forward either. 

“At this point in time it doesn’t make sense for us to move forward with this deal in light of the claims, which must be taken with the utmost seriousness,” said Bernard Rubin, CEO of EARI in a press release. “That said, we continue to be on the lookout for spirits brands that fit EARI’s ethos of social responsibility.”

It seems that Noth may be the latest in a long line of men who fall victim to the #MeToo movement.
