Um, this is incredible. During an appearance on ‘WWHL,’ Chris Noth brought his Mr. Big character back to life to recreate one of the most iconic scenes in the show’s history with some help from Andy Cohen. Click inside to watch!
Chris Noth, 61, has definitely put his Sex & The City days behind him, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t interested in reminiscing every now and then. While chatting with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live, the actor agreed to recreate the scene where Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) tells Big that she’s moving to Paris with Aleksandr Petrovsky. However, their version has a VERY different ending.
In the clip Chris plays Big, obviously, while Andy puts on a curly brown wig to portray Carrie. Mr. Big asks Carrie if she’s really moving to Paris but she doesn’t answer, and when she tells him who she’s moving with he cracks a joke about it. Carrie turns around to storm off in frustration but Big chases after her, telling her that he’s realized he’s made a mistake — but it’s too late. Carrie has already made up her mind and the mere thought of Big coming back out of the blue, again, to interrupt her life is too much to deal with. But in this clip Chris as Big grabs Andy as Carrie’s face and then pulls him/her into a tight embrace for a fake make-out session. Too funny!
As diehard SATC fans might remember, that is definitely not how the scene ended. In the real episode Carrie tells Big to forget her number, her name, and that he even knows her — then gets in one last dig by reminding him that he can drive down her street all he wants now because she doesn’t live there any more. Ouch.
