Did He REALLY Sleep With 12,775 Women? Warren Beatty Sets The Record Straight

In the annals of Hollywood history, there was no greater ladies’ man than Warren Beatty, whose sexual prowess was the stuff of Tinseltown legend — the result, claimed the author of a recent biography of the “Bonnie and Clyde” star, of his bedding nearly 13,000 women.

Beatty has never commented on this number — until now, discussing the figure (arrived at in an unauthorized 2010 biography by Peter Biskind) in a new interview with AARP magazine.

“Think about it, sleeping with 12,775 people,” said the 79-year-old Oscar-winner in the interview, his first in nearly two decades. “That would mean not just that there were multiple people a day, but that there was no repetition.”

“Look, I never mislead anyone,” he added, intimating that while the number may not have reached 12,000, it was, well, high. “And … and I’m a nice guy.”

As Beatty explains, he knew when he met wife Annette Bening that he was finally ready to settle down. “I waited a long time to be married. When you don’t get married until you’re 54 … well, as Arthur Miller said, ‘It comes with the territory.'”

Beatty added: “I always knew I wanted to have children. I wanted to do it well, and I wanted to do it with someone who felt the same way. I’m an attentive father, I have to struggle somewhat not to be overly attentive. It’s a burden to be the child of not only one famous parent, but two.”
