Zoe Lister-Jones Recalls Chris Noth Of Sexually Harassing Female Promoter And Being Drunk On Law & Order

Zoe Lister-Jones has shared her own experience with Chris Noth after two women accused the actor of sexual assault this week. 

Lister-Jones, 39, claimed Noth, 67, was drunk on the set of Law & Order and acted inappropriately toward women at a New York City nightclub he owned. Lister-Jones made the accusations in a lengthy Instagram post, which she shared Thursday. 

“Last week my friend asked me how I felt about Mr. Big’s death on And Just Like That…, and I said, honestly, I felt relieved,” she wrote, referring to the death of Noth’s character on the Sex and the City revival. 

“He asked why and I told him it was because I couldn’t separate the actor from the man, and the man is a sexual predator,” she continued. “My friend was alarmed at my word choice. And to be honest so was I. I hadn’t thought of this man for so many years, and yet there was a virility to my language that came from somewhere deep and buried.”

Lister-Jones recalled how in her twenties, she worked at a club that Noth owned in N.Y.C. (Noth owns The Cutting Room in Manhattan.) Lister-Jones went on to recount how “on the few occasions” Noth showed up at the venue “he was consistently sexually inappropriate with a fellow female promoter.”

Lister-Jones did not name the female promoter.

It was that same year she was working at the club, Lister-Jones said she also guest-starred on Law & Order with Noth, who played Detective Mike Logan in the series. During Noth’s first episode returning after filming Sex and the City, Lister-Jones claimed the actor “was drunk on set.”

“During my interrogation scene he had a 22 oz. of beer under the table that he would drink in between takes,” she alleged. “In one take he got close to me, sniffed my neck, and whispered, ‘You smell good.’ I didn’t say anything. My friend at the club never said anything. It’s so rare that we do.”

A source allegedly told PEOPLE, “To allege Chris was drunk on the set of Law & Order is also entirely false.”

“The accusations against me made by individuals I met years, even decades, ago are categorically false,” Noth himself said in a statement. “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. 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.”

Lister-Jones then posted to Instagram, “My experiences are small in comparison to the accounts of assault that have so bravely been shared today but navigating predation at any level is a burden all women have to bear.”
