Sex And The City hunk Chris Noth has no problem with meeting his adoring army of fans - but dislikes sweaty palms.

The 48-year-old actor - who plays MR BIG in the hit show - was recently filming new movie BAD APPLE with Robert Patrick outside Saks Fifth Avenue in New York when the pair were engulfed by female admirers.

Chris happily signed autographs and posed for photos before asking a Saks employee for directions to the nearest bathroom.

Noth told the PAGE SIX website, "I need to wash my hands. I have been shaking hands with too many people with sweaty palms, and it is disgusting."
