Chris Noth had “Sex and the City” fans up in arms when he called Carrie Bradshaw — his character Mr. Big’s love interest on the widely popular series — a “whore” in a recent interview.
The actor was discussing the duo’s complicated relationship when he said,
“Big was powerful because he had a lot of money and he seemed to have the upper hand in the relationship, but emotionally he was a wreck.
Actually, no: he was what he was. One of the things I tell people is that he never tried to pretend he was anything other than what he was. It was Carrie [Sarah Jessica Parker] who tried to pretend he was something he wasn’t.
He was always honest about himself — he never cheated on her. The relationship just didn’t work, and he went on to get married while she went on to — how many boyfriends did she have? She was such a whore!”
Oh no he did not! Thankfully, the 59-year-old quickly clarified, “There’s a misconception that Carrie was a victim of him, and that’s not the case — she was a strong, smart woman.”
That’s more like it. And although Chris did not confirm nor deny a third movie, he did question whether shows like HBO’s “Girls” have lessoned its chances.
“The New York that ‘Sex and the City’ depicted is not the New York that I love — New York was a much bigger, more interesting place than just fashion and glitz and all that crap. It’s become its own nightmare,” “The Good Wife” star told Australia’s News.com.au.
“You’ve got ‘Girls’ now, which is much tougher and more realistic,” he added. “[Writer Michael Patrick King would] have to be really smart to make it relevant. I mean, we’re all getting older. What would it be? ‘Carrie, goddamnit, my bladder!'”
Hey, we would still watch!
