This is kind of making my head spin.
While he was definitely a stone-cold fox back in the day (I'm currently drooling over his Wiki page), the sheer logistics alone should pretty much settle the matter. But ridiculous idolatry logic shall prevail: who doesn't love a good Hollywood scandal? And anyway, just about all of Beatty's former partners have described his near-constant amorousness. Still though -- 12,775?! Who in the world could ever believe that?
His confirmed, still-really-long list includes such starlets as Madonna, Janice Dickinson, Barbra Streisand, and Carly Simon. It's a hell of a roster, no matter what the actual number is.
Beatty, who married Annette Bening in 1992, doesn't even try to deny his popularity with the ladies, saying: "When you don't get married until you're 54… well, as Arthur Miller said, 'It comes with the territory.'"
