Chris Noth is a sex symbol to many women due to his role as Mr Big in Sex And The City.
But like most of us, the actor has succumbed to the inevitable middle-aged paunch.
The actor, who has been open about his changing weight, looked heavier than usual as he walked in New York City yesterday.

Wearing a green T-shirt and shorts, the 57-year-old looked a world away from trim Big in the seminal series and films.
Noth has been open about his changing weight and was forced to lose the pounds when he reprised his role as Mr Big in the Sex And The City 2 film in 2010.
He said at the time: 'Kayaking, hiking, yoga, and a vegetarian diet. The hard part was getting up at 6am to do 6:30am yoga.

'I wasn’t used to that. Yoga’s hard for me, but I know you can really feel the difference when you do it consistently. I’d rather be playing basketball. So anyway, that sort of got me into the mode. It feels better to be healthy.'
He admitted he gained weight while starring in a play so went to a yoga hiking camp in Brazil to shift the pounds.
Meanwhile, the actor is still basking in a newlywed glow after tying the knot in Hawaii in April.

He and long-term partner Tara Wilson tied the knot in a sunset ceremony in Maui on April 6, with their four-year-old son Orion served as the ringbearer.
The nuptials took place in a luxurious oceanfront estate on Makena Beach in front of just 10 people.
The couple met in 2002, when Tara was working at Chris’s New York bar The Cutting Room.
Tara gave birth to Orion in January 2008 and the pair confirmed their engagement in October 2009.
