Chris Noth has joked that he wished Penelope Cruz's cameo in Sex And The City 2 had gone on a bit longer.

The actor got to work with the Hollywood beauty when she shot her role as a sultry banker who gets in the way of his character Big's marriage with Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker).

"I thought it was far too short!" laughed Noth. "But it was a lot of fun. She's very warm and down-to-earth and it was a really pleasant flirtation."

The actor went on: "It's also a fun tease for the audience who thinks, 'Oh, he's going back to his old ways! I know he is!' It's been a long ride - Big has gone from a man with a cool head to a warm heart. But people like the big wolf part of him."

SJP added: "Penelope's so important in this movie, not just because she's a massive movie star and a delight to stare at, but she makes Carrie Bradshaw say something very, very important - she makes Carrie introduce herself as Carrie Preston. It's not about Carrie being threatened by another woman, it's about Carrie and Big and there couldn't be a better person to step in and provoke that conversation than Penelope Cruz."

:: Sex And The City 2 is in cinemas now.
