Just Like Old "Sex" -- More of the Same

It was 1998 all over again as Sarah Jessica Parker and Chris Noth did their best Carrie-and-Big all over the Upper East Side yesterday.


TMZ cameras caught the on-screen couple in various states of canoodle and just plain idling as the "Sex and the City" flick finally began shooting in New York. Despite the producers' attempts to keep lensmen away from the set, we managed to find SJP and Noth in a number of tony locations, including just outside celebriteria Nello's.

Despite appearances to the contrary, we caught the minuscule Sarah Jessica actually grazing at the craft services table -- a shock along the lines of finding Carrie Bradshaw in flats!
