Warren Beatty Made It With More Than 12,775 Women, Book Claims
A biography of Warren Beatty that's due in stores next week claims the actor slept with more than 12,775 women. If you're keeping score, that's way more than Gene Simmons (4,600), but less than Wilt Chamberlain.
In any case, Beatty's camp is distancing itself from the tome (but, apparently, not necessarily from the number). His attorney, Bertram Fields, told the Huffington Post that the author's "tedious and boring book on Mr. Beatty was not authorized by Mr. Beatty and should not be published as an authorized biography."
Drive-bys? Gangsta! Keep in mind, though, that Beatty, who is now 72, was a young Hollywood stud in the 1970s, when restraint, fidelity, slim pant legs, tidy lapels, clean shaves, condoms and Brazilian waxes were all out of fashion.
