Chris Noth - John Corbett Asked To Slim Down For Sex And The City Too

Actor Chris Noth wasn't the only star forced to slim down for his role on Sex And The City - his onscreen love rival John Corbett was also asked to lose weight for the hit Tv series.

The Law & Order star recently revealed that he had been asked by show creator Michael Patrick King to shed a few extra pounds before reprising his character Mr. Big in the film adaptations of the programme, and now producer Amy B. Harris confesses Noth wasn't alone.

But it wasn't his leading lady Sarah Jessica Parker who was asked to watch her weight - it was her other love interest Aiden, played by Corbett.

Harris admits Tv executives wanted Corbett's character to make a return to the Tv version after his initial split from Parker's Carrie Bradshaw looking sexier than ever, so he had to embark on a strict diet plan.

She tells, "We told Corbett to lose weight between seasons three and four. When we talked about whether or not we wanted to see John come back, we basically said we want him to come back so hot that she cannot believe it. Like, he looks so much better after she left him. And we made him lose weight. And then we made Chris lose weight for the movie."

And Harris still finds it funny how the male stars were the only ones placed under pressure to watch their figures: "It's hilarious. The women were, like, perfection, and no one ever mentioned anything about their weight ever. It was just the two guys! I think the women were just predisposed to be lucky and didn't have to worry."
