Chris Noth Reveals Big Appetite Resulted In Forced Weight Loss For Sex And The City Film

He’s the man that so many of us wanted and cheered when Carrie finally got her guy – though can anyone actually believe his name is John? It just doesn’t seem right. However, while there were certain “Big” aspects of him that Sex and the City’s Carrie loved, there were others that concerned the franchise’s writer-director, Michael Patrick King. Chris Noth, the man behind Mr Big, popped by the HuffPost Live studio on Wednesday (October 16) to have a chat about his work for World Food Day. World Food Day is run by the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization and is held every October 16. The day is one to raise awareness of food issues in the world and to help increase the understanding of the problems and solutions needed to end hunger. During his discussion with host Marc Lamont Hill, amongst the serious chat about the US government shutdown, racism and world hunger, the pair got to talking about what most of us in developed countries take for granted – food on tap and being a foodie culture. This resulted in Noth confessing that his “big” appetite actually caused some concern for King: “When we were doing the movie of Sex and the City, Michael Patrick King came up to me and said, ‘Listen, dude, were not calling you Mr. Big because of the size of your stomach, so go lose that before we start shooting’.” And for those SATC fans, will there be another outing? Noth said that he doesn’t see the girls that often, mainly due to everyone having children and lives. When pressed, he replied, “there’s a lot of good stuff out there. I don’t know if they need any more Sex and the City. I think we may have squeezed the juice out of that.” However, there may be a glimpse of hope as he added, that if King “wanted to write something great then I’m sure we’ll all want to read it.” For more information on World Food Day, visit the official website and visit the HuffPost Live site to listen to the entire interview.
