Everybody has a specific number of partners they’ve been intimate with, and sometimes bringing up that number can lead to one of the most awkward and deceitful conversations of your life. Most dudes tend to basically double their total. And if you have a super low number, you might even triple it, and rationalize your lie by including really heavy make-out sessions. Other people have the opposite problem. They’ve had too many partners and don’t want to look like a freak. Some people have even lost count. If you’ve had over 20, you’re doing well. Congratulations! That’s a bedroom master in my book, but depending on who you’re talking to, you might want to bring it down to a more respectable 17.
Now just imagine if you were rich and famous. That magic number would surely go up, right? Well in many cases, celebs are just like us, and numbers range quite a bit. Now keep in mind these celebrity totals only represent the publicized affairs. If Orlando Bloom bangs three hot nobody-tourists on a holiday weekend in Ibiza, those girls won’t increase his number.
This list concerns actress magic numbers, but let’s mention more famous dudes first. John Mayer is only 11. Brad Pitt has documented a 19. Jay-Z has had 22. Young Mr. Bieber already tallied 34. Drake comes in at 39. And the supermodel king, Leo Dicaprio, nailed 40. Now let’s see how the ladies compare.
15 Scarlett Johansson... 13
Guess what? Scarlett Johansson is back on the market! As of January, she is single again, which makes her that much more attractive. Not that we’d ever have a chance in hell with her, but a boy can dream. ScarJo’s number comes in at 13, and this number may be pretty accurate. She has been under the spotlight for most of her life, so any boyfriends she may have had were well documented. These numbers all come from the user-created website called Who’s Dated Who. It’s not entirely accurate, but it’s interesting entertainment for sure. In truth, nobody ever called Scarlett and asked, “So how many dudes you been with?” That would be very awkward. And she would just lie anyway, just like anyone else would, when asked such a personal question.
14 Jennifer Lopez… 13
What? Jennifer Lopez is only a 13? That seems way low, especially considering that she recently hopped from Drake to Alex Rodriguez in like a week. Plus, she should count extra for getting married and divorced three times. But hey, she said she was proposed to five times and didn’t always go through with it, so that’s pretty good. She’s just too damned irresistible. Ben Affleck was once her fiancee. She also dated Sean Puff Daddy Combs for a while. She says that she knew her latest marriage, with ex Marc Anthony, was doomed from the start. Was that realization before or after she was pregnant with the twins? Makes you wonder. These relationship troubles happen to everybody, and when we see celebrities do it too, it makes them more relatable, and therefor more likeable. Best of luck, Jen.
13 Jennifer Aniston... 13
Man, does 13 seem to be the magic number for a lot of actresses or what? Well, Aniston here is married now, so her number has stopped, but many of these actresses will keep adding on for years to come. Jen’s number may be a little low, since we probably didn’t start counting until Friends, so she probably had at least five dudes before then. Can you imagine the magic number for the Friends characters? My lord, they’d all have 100. I remember watching that show as a kid and thinking, damn, I need to get busy, if Ross can get so much action, what is my problem? Another Brad Pitt ex and magic-13 is Gwyneth Paltrow, whose number may be pretty accurate since she’s a lifetime Hollywood starlet. Another famous Pitt ex, of course, is Angelina Jolie, and her number is 14, which seems super low. She seems like the type to have had 14 in one room, back in her goth years.
12 Taylor Swift... 13
Yes, we had to include this singer, who has actually acted on CSI, and in the film Valentine’s Day. Everybody wanted Taylor to be on the list because of her man-eater reputation, but does that number seem higher or lower than you expected? I personally assumed Taylor would be in the 20s, since she has made a career out of singing about her exes. That’s the thing that is confusing with these tallies. Sometimes super famous people add more controversy, so it makes people believe that the magic number is higher. Like with men, John Mayer’s 11 seems low, but all of his girlfriends were super famous, and very vocal about their relationships in the media. Again, that doesn’t count the 3,000 groupies Taylor, or John had backstage. By the way, a prominent member of the Taylor Swift posse, Kendall Jenner, has the magic 13 as well. And sister Kylie comes in at a surprising 10. She sure was busy during that break with Tyga.
11 Emma Watson… 14
Whoa, this is unexpected. Emma Watson clocked in more dudes that JLo? Wow, Hermione has been busy. Most of the dudes are random British guys that not many people have heard of, but there is Tom Felton, aka Draco Malfoy. [There must be a crude Slytherin joke here somewhere.] Another famous Brit on the list is none other than Prince Harry himself. The playboy prince comes in respectably at magic number 19. Sure their romance may be just a rumor, but why wouldn’t it be true? I’m sure the admiration is mutual. They’re both young and single, so go for it. Poor Dan Stevens, the dude who plays Beast in Emma’s latest flick. He only has a measly number 1. Ouch. That happens when marriage precedes fame. He’s getting famous now, so a divorce may come soon. Another famous starlet with a number 14 is Bella Thorne. Bonus gossip: there’s a pretty girl on Bella’s list, Bella Pendergast, who first dated Bella’s brother, Remy.
10 Katy Perry... 16
So here we have the numbers slowly getting higher, but don’t worry, they will jump big-time, further down the list. As for now, we have the beautiful pop star and actress Katy Perry. Yes, she is an actress too. Just because the list title says actress, of course there are going to be singers. It’s all the same, you know. They do a couple music videos and the director says, Hey that was good, you should act. And then their agent says, hey, there’s a lot of money in acting. Next thing you know a great singer is now a mediocre actress, and she’s voicing Smurfette, and playing Rikki Hargrove on Raising Hope. Politics is often a hobby of actors too, and Perry is diving into to that realm next. An interesting fact is that Perry’s real name is Kate Hudson, which she had to change because of the actress, Kate Hudson. KHud, coincidentally is another magic number 16. Super diva, Mariah Carey, is a 16 too.
9 Rita Ora... 17
Rita Ora does not get enough attention. The woman is beautiful. She has been in the business for a while now, and like all singers, easily transitioned into the acting realm, in Fifty Shades of Grey. Rita gained popularity by dating Jay-Z years ago, and has also been one of the relatively few ladies to date Bruno Mars. Her list is quite versatile, with names like Cara Delevingne, Rob Kardashian, Travis Barker and Snoop Dogg. She’s also done dogs like Bieber, Drake and Chris Brown, but perhaps the most surprising mate is Jonah Hill. Another famous beauty, and actor-singer combo, who is a 17, is Miley Cyrus. For those of you who didn’t know, Miley is married now. Not really. According to some sources she and long-time love Liam Hemsworth secretly tied the knot on New Years, but those claims were never affirmed.
8 Cameron Diaz... 23
Finally, we’re out of those silly little teen numbers and into the twenties. Enough of amateur hour here, let’s get to the real pros. Cameron Diaz first came onto the scene with Jim Carrey’s The Mask. Then she further established her foothold on Hollywood with There’s Something About Mary. But that was it. She's stuck around and made a bunch more films, but they weren’t ever as impressive. She did however, date a lot of famous dudes. She’s married to Benji Madden now, but before him she dated Sean Combs, Chris Angel, Alex Rodriguez, Elon Musk, Justin Timberlake, Jared Leto, and the list goes on. Cameron doesn’t care if you’re a businessman, a magician, baseball player, actor, singer, whatever. And that’s the biggest appeal of Diaz, she seems to have an open, laid-back, cool type of attitude. Her acting isn’t the best, but she is extremely charismatic.
7 Kim Kardashian… 24
Kim Kardashian got famous by improving on her magic number with Ray-J, so we can’t be too surprised to find her settling in at number 24. And she also acted on CSI and Disaster Movie, so she’s in. Her husband, Kanye West, ranks in at 19, although he would surely claim a much higher number. Like we mentioned in the intro, sex numbers with guys are usually much higher than real numbers. However, Kanye would surely deny that one of those numbers is the male Italian fashion designer, Riccardo Tisci, with whom he had an alleged affair in 2011. As far as Kim goes, she has had other famous rappers on her list, like 50 Cent, and Jay Z, and then of course there were athletes like Reggie Bush and Kris Humphries. Kim definitely seems to have a type. As a side note, another buxom hottie with a number 24 is Jennifer Love-Hewitt.
6 Britney Spears... 25
FHM magazine did a survey about these magic numbers a couple years ago and found some interesting results. They asked a bunch of dudes and discovered that, “20% said their magic number was 11-20, making it the most common response, and 1-5 was the second highest, with 18% admitting it to other people.” Interesting stuff. They also found that a slim majority, 52% of men, were happy with their number. And they said that only 7% of men had nailed over 100 women. Here’s another finding: over 20 was the magic number that turned men off. That being said, most dudes would never kick Britney Spears out of bed, and she's currently clocking in at 25. Over the years, Britney has had her share of ups and downs, both physically and mentally, but she is looking like one hot milf today.
5 Winona Ryder... 25
There is no denying that Winona Ryder has been in Hollywood for quite a while. So if you add up the decades in the spotlight, 25 is not a bad number at all. While she dated stars from Johnny Depp to Matt Damon, Winona went from playing the young daughter in Beetlejuice, to playing the mom in Stranger Things. Here’s what she said about taking on her new mom role: “Usually the ‘mom’ roles you are offered are very much the mom role. Like literally standing in the doorway, wearing fluffy slippers, and saying, ‘Oh, you kids!’ [Stranger Things] was different because she was much more than just something to service the plot, so it was a really great opportunity.” Stranger Things is a favorite of fans and critics alike. Ryder has had some missteps in her career, like shoplifting, and that Sandler movie, but she’s recovered nicely.
4 Rihanna... 26
Compared to Ryder, Rihanna hasn’t been around that long, so 26 seems a little high. Of course it’s not surprising with Rihanna, who exudes sex with everything she sings, wears, says and does. What is the word for sex charisma? Because Rihanna seems to have enough of it to go around. The famous men on her list include Leonardo DiCaprio, Jay-Z, Drake, and her infamous relationship with Chris Brown. I still can’t believe Brown recovered from that domestic violence case. He’s NOT that talented. There are plenty of dudes who can sing, dance, and act tough, who don't beat women. Hollywood sucks sometimes, right? Other famous surprises on Rihanna’s list include Ashton Kutcher, Shia LaBeouf and Ryan Phillipe. And yes, Rihanna acts too, and quite well, I might add. She’s starred in Bates Motel, Annie, and the upcoming Ocean’s Eight.
3 Madonna... 32
Here’s yet another singer turned actress, who could sing way better than act. Madonna acted in Desperately Seeking Susan back in the 80s, and she’s shown up over the years in films like Dick Tracy, A League of Their Own and Body of Evidence. The latter title was most in line with how she has presented herself in the music business. Madonna has always been a sexpot extraordinaire. Ever since she writhed around on the MTV stage back in 1984, Madonna has made herself into the kinky bad girl that every gender wants a piece of. Without Madonna, Lady Gaga and a hundred other acts don't exist. Remember her Sex book? That thing came out in 1992 and shocked the world. It’s surprising to find that only 2 of Madonna’s 32 are women. She’s had a wide variety of famous figures along the way, ranging from Warren Beatty to Tupac. And the number is growing. The 58 year old icon is single.
2 Paris Hilton... 53
Okay, Paris Hilton is obviously more of a socialite than an actress, but you’d be surprised at the amount of movies she’s been in, and we’re not talking about the naughty one, 1 Night in Paris. Hilton has appeared in such wondrous films as The Hottie and the Nottie, Repo! The Genetic Opera, House of Wax and Pledge This! She has won three Razzie Awards for poor acting, including the 2010 title Worst Actress of the Decade. The bad performances may have turned off most casting directors, but it certainly did not turn off her line of suitors. The most famous dudes Paris has known include, Cristiano Ronaldo, Kid Rock, and Eddie Furlong. Actually the Paris list is one of the most random ever. There is no rhyme or reason.
1 Lindsay Lohan... 76
Oh, my lord! A seventy-six?! This girl actually doubled Madonna. How is that possible? Lindsay Lohan even bested Paris Hilton, by a landslide! Congratulations, LiLo. That is impressive. You have gotten busy with many wonderful people. You've shared a beautiful, intimate moment, one to be treasured for a lifetime. Not all of her dudes would agree. When a list of 36 mates that Lindsay wrote down was leaked to the press, many of the guys denied, denied, denied. And that was 36. There must be a whole other list out there by now. Of course the number of famous dudes has dwindled as Lindsay’s career slumped. 2006 was her peak, with 14 friends. Some highlights on her list include 2 girls, and Bruce Willis. If you do the math, after dating for 9 years, it’s an average of 8 partners per year. Hey, that doesn’t sound as bad.
