Two women have come forward with sexual assault allegations against actor Chris Noth, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The women, who reportedly have no ties to one another, alleged the incidents took place in Los Angeles in 2004 and in New York in 2015.

The two accusers brought their allegations to the Reporter at separate times, saying they were compelled to come forward amid the “Sex and the City” reboot “And Just Like That,” in which Noth returned to play his beloved character Mr. Big.

“Seeing that he was reprising his role in ‘Sex and the City’ set off something in me,” one of the accusers told the outlet. “For so many years, I buried it.”

She added, “I was feeling awful. Totally violated. All of my dreams with this star I loved for years were gone.”

The other woman says that Noth raped her in a West Hollywood apartment.

“It was very painful and I yelled out, ‘Stop!'” she told the Reporter. “And he didn’t. I said, ‘Can you at least get a condom?’ and he laughed at me.”

A friend of the woman later brought her to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where they confirmed she had been sexually assaulted. The victim did not disclose the identity of her attacker, noting she was fearful of the impact it could have on her career.

Noth denied the allegations in a Thursday statement to The Hill, calling them “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,” he said, adding that 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,” he added.
