NEW YORK, May 26 (UPI) -- Actor Chris Noth said he and his co-stars in the upcoming "Sex and the City" film had plenty of attention while shooting on the streets of New York.
Noth reprises his role as Mr. Big, Carrie's dashing love interest, in the big-screen version of the iconic TV series. Sarah Jessica Parker plays Carrie.
"Every outdoor scene we did, I mean, paparazzi out, journalists, too, and lots of people with camera phones," Noth told UPI in New York recently.
"It's kind of like you want to say, 'You don't want to know this movie till you see it, do you?' They were just desperate to see what we were doing. It cracked me up. So, we had to do a lot of fake endings
"And, you know, I'd suddenly go by a journalist and say something like, 'Yeah, it's too bad that Carrie died!'" he laughed. "'I can't take another funeral.' ... I said a lot of things. I really did. I said: 'It's all just a dream, isn't it? It's so much fun when she wakes up from the nightmare!'"
The film opens in U.S. theaters Friday.
