Carrie Bradshaw may have been a fictional character, but fans of the Sex And The City series aren’t taking some comments about her lightly this week.
Chris Noth, who played Mr. Big on the show, had some things to say about the dynamic between Carrie and his character in a recent interview and his comments are spreading across the web like wildfire.
“He 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!” he said.
Despite the rest of that quote, Noth has found himself in hot water this week with fans who have taken to Twitter and other social media outlets to call him out.
“There’s a misconception that Carrie was a victim of him, and that’s not the case — she was a strong, smart woman,” he went on.

An interview in which Chris Noth kinda confirms he's exactly like I always thought he was http://t.co/NzFZ5WucJE

As of now, Sarah Jessica Parker hasn’t commented on the interview, but former Sex And The City writer Jenny Bicks commented to Buzzfeed about it, saying, “Oh my God, that’s such a ‘Big’ thing to say! 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.”
