The onscreen couple is rocked by scandal and during one tumultuous scene, Margulies had to punch the "Sex and the City" star in the face. Noth was left nursing a nasty injury from the stunt.

Margulies says, "I did really whack him. There was no other way to do it. And Chris Noth is so great. He's like, 'Oh, please, I've been hit so many times.' So we did it three times.

"The first time I didn't hit him hard enough, apparently. The second time was good but the camera was off. And the third time was perfect. And I left a red welt, so we couldn't shoot it again."
