Mr. Big Says Carrie Bradshaw Is A Whore, Is Terrible

UPDATE: Sex and the City co-creator Michael Patrick King has responded to Noth's remarks. He told BuzzFeed News over email that the actor was clearly joking in the interview. "We always had a wonderful time working on SATC, and I know [Noth] has the greatest affection for SJP as an actress and a friend. To take his comment any other way would be a 'Big' mistake."
Jenny Bicks, who wrote for the show, served Big with some fact checking. "I will totally agree with Chris (and one generally should, as he is very big) on the fact that Carrie was a strong, smart woman (most of the time). However, he seems to have forgotten that he may not have cheated ON her, but he certainly cheated WITH her when he was married and Carrie was single. So, I would say that’s kinda slutty of Big. And also, not cool. Not cool at all. He’s lucky she married him in the end," she told BuzzFeed.

For all their media training, celebrities still experience a foot-in-mouth moment from time to time. Today, that faux pas comes from Chris Noth, more endearingly known as Mr. Big. In an interview with Australian news outlet News.com.au, Noth talked about his character in Sex and the City.
"One of the things I tell people is that [Big] never tried to pretend he was anything other than what he was. It was [Carrie] 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! [laughs] There’s a misconception that Carrie was a victim of him, and that’s not the case — she was a strong, smart woman."
If you feel uncomfortable right now, it's because you should. It's such a bummer to see a character so closely associated with your own sexual and dating-life discoveries knock down that very lifestyle his show helped inspire. Newsflash, Noth: Strong, smart women sometimes choose to have lots and lots of sex. (News.com.au)
