Warren Beatty Had Sex With 13,000 Women!

If this was “Casablanca,” Captain Renault might be saying about now: “I’m shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here!”

But the issue isn’t gambling and the place isn’t Rick’s. The issue is sex and the man in question is Warren Beatty. Beatty is in a snit because a new book titled “Star: How Warren Beatty Seduced America” by Peter Biskind claims that the legendary movie star and award-winning director bedded upwards of 13,000 women over the years.

Bert Fields, Beatty’s lawyer for the past three decades, says that’s preposterous and cautions readers that Biskind’s book is not an authorized biography of Beatty, who starred in such films as “Bonnie and Clyde,” “Shampoo,” and “Heaven Can Wait,” and won an Oscar for Best Director for “Reds.”

“Almost 13,000!” Fields said with a laugh when interviewed on the phone. “That is rubbish! That is just absurd! It never happened. Warren is a guy who has tended to have rather long relationships with individual women. He’s not a guy going from woman to woman to woman every night. He’d have to have two or three women a night to get to 13,000. That is just crazy. We were single at the same time so I know very well what he was doing and wasn’t doing.”

The book’s publisher, Simon & Schuster, notes on the book’s website that “Star” confirms Beatty’s status as “Hollywood’s” leading man in the bedroom, describing his affairs with Joan Collins, Natalie Wood, Leslie Caron, Julie Christie, Michelle Phillips, Diane Keaton and Madonna., among many others.? Beatty has been married to actress Annette Bening since 1992. They have four children.

The flap over “Star” was first reported on the Huffington Post. Biskind, who has authored such acclaimed Hollywood-themed books as “Easy Riders, Raging Bulls” and “Down and Dirty Pictures,” wasn’t immediately available for comment.

Fields said he has no plans to take legal action against Biskind and the publisher. “I’m not blaming Biskind,” he said, “because I think it goes with the territory. When you start out to write a biography of a movie star, a lot of people are going to tell you a lot of things.” Fields added he believes Biskind called Beatty “a couple times and asked him questions and Warren answered his questions” but that the level of cooperation didn’t go beyond that.

Oh, by the way, Oprah has deemed “Star” one of the “10 books to watch in January” so it’s sure to be a bestseller.
