Warren Beatty: could it possibly be true?

On January 12th, Peter Biskind, author of Easy Riders, Raging Bulls, will release a new book titled Star: How Warren Beatty Seduced America. The new biography is causing quite a stir with it’s proclamation that Warren Beatty has slept with nearly 13,000 women. So…what we’re all really dying to know is: could it possibly be true?

Beatty’s attorney via The Huffington Post declares this biography is “tedious and boring” as well as “unauthorized.” If these sexual accusations are true, what I’d really like to know is how he kept count. Did he keep a list or mark the wall or what? As Azaria Jagger on Gawker.com said, “you know it's a bad sex number estimate when it begins ‘Using simple arithmetic…’” Where did this math equation come from? I’ll have to agree with Boston Herald writer Lauren Beckham Falcone when she wrote, “ I’ll give him this: It’s not every day a sex story compels you to reach for a calculator.”

Given the man’s age of 72 years, that’s roughly 180.5 women per year of his life, 15 women per month! Somehow, even for Warren Beatty (as attractive as he may be), I find that hard to believe. Even if it were true, I’m not sure I’d want to brag about it if I were him.  I mean, 13,000 women…really?

While we may never know the truth (as if we really care) it is true what the description says: “Beatty's private life has been the subject of gossip for decades.” Gossip has become something people do when they get bored. Regardless of fact or fiction, the very idea of this kind of hypothesis is alarming.

Let me ask a serious question here: do we honestly care who Warren Beatty has slept with? No doubt, Beatty is a Hollywood icon but do we really want to know? Does sex sell so swell, really? It won’t be getting my dollar.

    If this is true, he's probably built an immunity to every STD known to man. We need to harvest his blood for pharmaceutical research.
