Two women came forward in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter last week to separately accuse the actor, 67, of assault in incidents that allegedly took place in 2004 and 2015 respectively.
Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis shared a statement on their social media accounts on Monday.
"We are deeply saddened to hear the allegations against Chris Noth. We support the women who have come forward and shared their painful experiences.
"We know it must be a very difficult thing to do and we commend them for it."
The statement comes after it was announced Noth had been fired from the CBS series The Equalizer after the accusations came to light.
Noth, who resumed the role of John 'Mr. Big' Preston in the spin-off series which premiered earlier this month, has called the claims "categorically false" and said his encounters with the women were consensual.
The women, who have used the pseudonyms Zoe and Lily, say the assaults happened in Los Angeles in 2004 and New York in 2015.
Lily, who is now aged 31, worked as a server in a VIP section of a club in New York when she met the actor in 2015 when she was 25 and he was 60.
Zoe, who is now aged 40, said she met Noth in 2004 when she was 22 at the firm where she worked. Noth and other celebrities often had business at the unnamed firm.
She said she had to seek treatment at Cedars-Sinai hospital after Noth allegedly kissed her after she returned he left with her and then raped her.
In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, Noth said: "He said: “The accusations against me made by individuals I met years, even decades, ago are categorically false. 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.
"The encounters were consensual. 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.”
