CHRIS Noth's accuser claims the Sex and the City actor "raped her in front of a mirror" and "laughed" when she asked about putting on a condom.
Noth was accused of sexual assault by two women who came forward to The Hollywood Reporter with their alleged experience with the Sex and the City star.
The actor, 67, vehemently denied the allegations, including one of rape, which relates to reported incidents more than a decade ago.
The women – who do not know each other – said promotions of HBO Max’s Sex and the City sequel series And Just Like That stirred painful memories of the incidents they claim occurred in Los Angeles in 2004 and New York in 2015.
One of the women, Zoe, 40, who still works in the entertainment industry, contacted the outlet in October and said that "seeing that he [Noth] was reprising his role in Sex and the City set off something in me."
Zoe said for years she "buried" the experience but decided it was time “to try to go public with who he is.”
In 2004, after graduating from college, Zoe – then 22 – moved to Los Angeles to work in an entry-level job for a high-profile firm where Noth and other celebrities regularly had business.
“He would walk by my desk and flirt with me. He somehow got my number from the directory and was leaving messages on my work phone. My boss was like, ‘Mr. Big’s leaving messages on your voicemail,'" she told THR.

Her ex-boss told the outlet that she witnessed Noth talking to her former employee at her desk.
Zoe also reportedly let her listen to some “kind of flirty” voicemails from Noth.
The former boss told THR that she thought it was odd that Noth, who was 49 at the time, had gotten Zoe’s number and left those messages, but said she didn’t find it alarming.
“This was peak Sex and the City. He was like a god to us," the unidentified ex-boss told the outlet.
Zoe claimed that Noth invited her to come to the pool at a building in West Hollywood where he had an apartment.
She told him she had a friend who lived in the same building and often had been to the pool.
That August, she and her best friend from college, who was visiting from the East Coast, excitedly went to the pool to meet Noth.
The visiting friend confirmed to THR that she went to the pool and sat with Zoe and Noth in the jacuzzi.
Zoe claimed Noth asked her all sorts of questions about her major and what she studied.
He had a book with him and told her to look at it because he was thinking of doing a project based on the material.
Then, according to both women, he said he had to go to his apartment to take a call.
But he left the book, asking Zoe to look through it and bring it back to his apartment.
Zoe was flattered: “He said, ‘I’d love to know what you think.’ I thought, ‘I’m new. He’s asking my opinion – I’ve only been in Hollywood for two months.”
'IT WAS PAINFUL'
Zoe claims that when she went into the apartment to return the book, Noth kissed her as she stepped through the door.
She tentatively kissed back, but then said: “Thank you, I’m going back to my friend.”
Zoe said the kiss didn’t alarm her, as she thought a kiss from Mr Big would be a fun story to tell her friends.
However, she claims he then pulled her toward him, moved her toward the bed, pulled off her shorts and bikini bottom, and began to rape her from behind.
She allegedly faced a mirror and remembered: “It was very painful and I yelled out, ‘Stop! And he didn’t. I said, ‘Can you at least get a condom?’ and he laughed at me.”
When it was over, she said, “I realized there was blood on my shirt. I got out of there. I went to my friend’s apartment [in the same building].” The friend visiting from college was already there, she said.
“I walked right in and went to the bathroom and tried to get the blood out of my shirt. They wanted to know what happened. I said, ‘I just want to go home.’”
Zoe went to Cedars-Sinai, where she told staff she was sexually assaulted.
“I had stitches. Two police officers came. I wouldn’t say who it was,” Zoe said, fearing that she would not be believed and felt she would be fired if she accused him publicly or even at her workplace.
A second woman, identified only as Lily, claims Noth sexually assaulted her in his Manhattan apartment in 2015.
After a few drinks at a restaurant, the pair went back to the actor's apartment, where Lily alleges Noth repeatedly tried to make out with her.
"The next thing I knew, he pulled down his pants and he was standing in front of me," as the actor allegedly forced his penis into her mouth.
"The next thing she knew, He was having sex with me from the back in a chair. We were in front of a mirror. I was kind of crying as it happened.”
When it was over, she said: “I went to the bathroom and put on my skirt. I was feeling awful. Totally violated. All of my dreams with this star I loved for years were gone.”
CHRIS NOTH DENIES ALLEGATIONS
The Sex and the City actor responded to the claims in a statement to THR: “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,” Noth added.
A source revealed to The US Sun that Noth was "completely baffled and blindsided" by the allegation depicted in the report.
“Chris only knew the story was coming out a few days ago. He is completely baffled and blindsided. He’s absolutely appalled by these allegations, and very confused as to why they are surfacing now, so close to the reboot.
"There have been numerous opportunities when the movies came out, so he cannot get his head around the situation," the source added.
