Actor Chris Noth has revealed he was forced to lose weight prior to shooting the big screen version of popular U.S. TV series Sex And The City. The actor, who played Mr. Big - the longtime love interest and eventual husband of Sarah Jessica Parker's leading lady Carrie Bradshaw, agreed to return to the iconic role in 2008, four years after he had said goodbye to his alter-ego on television. But creator Michael Patrick King had one requirement for Noth before he reprised the role on the big screen - he had to lose the extra pounds and return to a leaner frame. Noth tells HuffPost Live, "He came up to me and said, 'Listen, dude, we're not calling you Mr. Big because of the size of your stomach, so go lose that before we start shooting.'"
