Fans of Sex and the City are eating up reports about the big-screen version of the HBO hit like hot cakes. So when OK! caught up with show star Chris Noth, aka Mr. Big, at the Esquire Honors Law & Order event in New York City, the handsome actor had a lot to say.
What’s it like being back on Sex and the City?
It’s good. Although I was beaten on set the other day!
Oh in the wedding scene?
Yeah, with the flowers.
What can you tell us about that? Are these flashbacks?
All I can say is don’t believe anything the media has said about it. They’ve got it all wrong. Who knows? Maybe it’s all a dream… [raises his eyebrows]
Are you friends with the girls in real life?
In real life I’m not even sure of their names! Who are they? [laughs]
In the show’s final episode, Mr. Big appeared to have finally changed. Can we expect him to be different in the movie?
You’ll have to see! You know, when I read the pilot, I didn’t like him. He seemed so arrogant. But it was the last line of the pilot that got me — “Abso-f**king-lutely.” Then Michael Patrick King came along and he is just an incredible writer – really one of the best – and I had more to work with.
What’s the difference between working on SATC and shooting Law & Order: Criminal Intent?
It would take me hours to answer that!
Are you in a relationship?
I never talk about my private life. When you’re in this business it becomes so precious. I don’t understand when people open up about themselves to the press – it’s so strange to me.
