Noth, 67, who appeared in the first episode of HBO Max’s “And Just Like That,” a revival of “Sex and the City, has denied the allegations, saying in a statement that “the encounters were consensual.”

The women, who used the pseudonyms “Zoe” and “Lily” during interviews with The Hollywood Reporter, allege they were assaulted in Los Angeles in 2004 and in New York in 2015, respectively. Each woman approached The Hollywood Reporter separately and do not know one another.

Zoe, 40, who spoke with the website in October, said that seeing Noth reprise his role as Mr. Big “set off something in me.”

“For so many years, I buried it,” the woman said, adding that it was time “to try to go public with who he is.”

Lily, 31, now a journalist, reached out to The Hollywood Reporter in August.

“I’m not sure how you go about this sort of story and how you find the other victims,” she wrote in an email.

In a statement, Noth denied the allegations.

“The accusations against me made by individuals I met years, even decades, ago are categorically false,” Noth wrote. “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.”

Peloton, which featured a tongue-in-cheek ad featuring Noth after his character’s untimely death in the premiere of “And Just Like That,” pulled the spot after the allegations surfaced, Variety reported.

Noth’s character collapsed after a 45-minute workout on a Peleton bike, suffering a fatal heart attack.

On Thursday, Peloton deleted the YouTube video of the ad featuring Noth and all social media posts referring to it, Variety reported.

“Every single sexual assault accusation must be taken seriously. We were unaware of these allegations when we featured Chris Noth in our response to HBO’s reboot,” a representative for Peloton said in a statement to Variety. “As we seek to learn more, we have stopped promoting this video and archived related social posts.”
