Warren Beatty biography causes a scene

4th January 2010

A new biography is set to spark debate among film enthusiasts regarding Hollywood icon Warren Beatty's love life.

In his Star: How Warren Beatty Seduced America, biographer Peter Biskind claims that the legendary playboy had almost 13,000 lovers and told the New York Post that he came to this figure using 'simple arithmetic'.

The writer says that the actor bedded around '12,775 women, give or take - a figure that does not include daytime quickies, drive-bys, casual gropings, stolen kisses and so on'.

Biskind, who has written several works about Hollywood such as Seeing Is Believing and Gods and Monsters, told the newspaper that Beatty agreed to the book being written after the two became friends.

In the book, the biographer interviews some of the film world's female stars about their relationships with Beatty, including Jane Fonda and Diane Keaton.

However, the actor's attorney Bertram Fields has denied that the biography is authorised, sending a statement to the Huffington Post which claims it 'purportedly quotes Mr Beatty as saying things he never said'.
