‘Sex And City’s’ Mr. Big Receives Hate Mail Because Of Interracial Marriage

July 8, 2013  |  


We all know him for his (in)famous role on “Sex And City,” playing Carrie’s playing possum boyfriend and eventually, husband. Chris Noth, better known as Mr. Big, has done a good job keeping his private life, private. But last week in a candid interview with the Wall Street Journal, Noth admitted he receives hate mail from time to time for having an interracial family. He stated during his interview:

“When I was in a play on Broadway two years ago I’d occasionally get letters of outrage, usually from somewhere in Alabama or something, saying y’know, ‘Don’t come down here with your wife,’” he said.

Chris Noth married his long-term girlfriend, Tara Lynn Wilson, last year in a private ceremony in Hawaii after meeting her at his music venue in New York City, The Cutting Room, where she worked. They now have a 5-year-old son, Orion.

Check out the WSJ interview below and let us know what do you think about Noth’s comments about his son living in a post-racial society. Recently a lot of interracial celebrity couples  have stated race/racism is no longer a problem. Rapper Eve and reality television star Kim Kardashian both suggested raising their children color-blind.  Are they on to something or living in a fantasy?
