Singer-songwriter Gentile is now the fifth woman to accuse the Sex and the City alum of sexual assault. In a virtual press conference with famed attorney Gloria Allred, Gentile said she was “sexually victimized” and “sexually abused” by Noth in 2002 and that forcibly pulled her, kissed her and touched her breasts. “I was trying to get him to stop,” Gentile said. Gentile alleges that Noth called her the next day and said if she “ever told a soul about what happened the night before, that he would ruin my career, I would never sing again and he would blacklist me in the business.” Gentile is the fifth woman to accuse Noth of sexual assault. The first two women came forward anonymously in The Hollywood Reporter last week. A third woman came forward anonymously to The Daily Beast. In an essay for The Independent, Heather Kristin, a former stand-in for Sex and the City star Kristin Davis, alleged Noth was "toxic" on set and that he inappropriately touched her. “The first time the ‘alpha male’ actor slid his hand down my back and over my butt, I flinched," she wrote. "I was in my mid-20s and had worked as an extra on movie sets for over a decade; I had never been manhandled. ‘That’s your spot, sweetie,’ Noth said, inching even closer.” Allred said she hoped Gentile coming forward will prompt Sex and the City stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon to support New York state's Adult Survivors Act, which would allow sexual assault victims to seek justice, after the statute of limitations has passed. “Lisa and I appreciate their words of support,” Allred said of Parker, Nixon and Davis. “And now we urge Sarah, Cynthia and Kristin to take action, to speak out in support of the adult survivors act. Their endorsement of this act would be important.” Noth has yet to respond to the new accusations, but he has called the other allegations "categorically false."
