His unruly beard was white and grey and he also sported a black moustache and goatee.
His hair was also different colours, white all along the hairline but a light brown with flecks of grey elsewhere.
He sported a little bit of a pot belly as he stopped and sipped his coffee before buying a potted flower.
The way they were: Noth as Mr Big alongside Sarah Jessica Parker's Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City
Noth starred as Mr Big, whose name was later revealed as John Preston, from 1998 to 2008 which included both films.
He currently stars in The Good Wife and has been nominated for a Golden Globe for his role.
He is soon set to narrate a Canadian cable crime series I Didn’t Do It which uses reenactments and interviews with the accused, investigating officers, jurors and prosecuting attorneys to search for the real perpetrator behind a crime.
