Chris Noth, who played Mr. Big to Sarah Jessica Parker’s Carrie Bradshaw on “Sex and the City,” told an Australian entertainment magazine that his character was misunderstood.

In an interview with news.au.com, Noth said Mr. Big was often maligned for his relationship with the show’s Bradshaw.

"One of the things I tell people is that 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," Noth said. "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 wh—! [Laughs] There’s a misconception that Carrie was a victim of him, and that’s not the case — she was a strong, smart woman."

Wonderwall called the comment a “backhanded compliment,” while BuzzFeed reached out to show writers for their take on Noth’s assessment.

“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),” writer Jenny Bicks told BuzzFeed. “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.”

The attention Noth’s comment got caused many to sound off online.

“*shrug* they were all kind of wh—s, but we loved them anyways,” one person wrote on the BuzzFeed article in the comment section that was getting kind of hot.

“OMG, can we no longer tell reality from TV? Holy crap, Batman, these were CHARACTERS in a TV show that hasn't even been on for how many years???? In other words, WHO CARES????” another person wrote.
