For those of you keeping score at home, this figure does not include "daytime quickies, drive-bys, casual gropings, stolen kisses and so on." (Nor does it come close to Wilt Chamberlin's legendary stats.)
We've always understood it was bad form to kiss and tell, but no one ever warned us off counting and telling, perhaps because it seems so ridiculous.
And to be fair, his lawyer Bertram Fields issued a stinging rebuke about Star: How Warren Beatty Seduced America that says in part: "Mr. Biskind's tedious and boring book…contains many false assertions and purportedly quotes Mr. Beatty as saying things he never said."
Fair enough; the whole idea, not to mention the number, seems a little ludicrous. Although for a supposedly boring book, it's certainly got our attention. How about you?
