Chris Noth recently confessed he was asked to slim down for his role in the "Sex and the City" movie -- and now it has been revealed that John Corbett was also asked to lose weight while the show was still on the air.

Producer Amy B. Harris admits TV executives wanted Corbett's character Aiden to make a return to the TV version after his initial split from Parker's Carrie Bradshaw looking sexier than ever, so he had to embark on a strict diet plan.

Bing: 'Sex and the City 3'?

She tells Eonline.com, "We told Corbett to lose weight between seasons three and four. When we talked about whether or not we wanted to see John come back, we basically said we want him to come back so hot that she cannot believe it. Like, he looks so much better after she left him. And we made him lose weight. And then we made Chris lose weight for the movie."

And Harris still finds it funny how the male stars were the only ones placed under pressure to watch their figures: "It's hilarious. The women were, like, perfection, and no one ever mentioned anything about their weight ever. It was just the two guys! I think the women were just predisposed to be lucky and didn't have to worry."
