Lusty “Lawrence of Arabia” star PETER O'TOOLE enjoyed over 1,033 Hollywood nights of love!
The Irishman heartthrob’s conquests read like a Who’s Who of the world’s most famous women, including Ava Gardner, Audrey Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor, according to a new biography!
Peter – who passed away in 2013 at 81 – was still a rising star when Liz summoned him to discuss a role in “Cleopatra” in 1960.
“For the first time in my life with a woman, I was nervous, fearing she might critique my performance,” he recalled.
Peter didn’t land the role, but began a long romance with Liz that eventually had him brawling with drinking buddy Richard Burton over who Liz preferred between the sheets.
Sultry screen siren Ava, however, wasn’t choosy: She invited both actors into her boudoir while filming 1964’s “Night of the Iguana” with Liz’s then-husband.
“It took the both of us to satisfy her that night,” said Peter, adding: “She told me I was 10 times the lover that [Clark] Gable was, but not quite the equal of Robert Mitchum.”
Audrey pursued Peter on the set of 1966’s “How to Steal a Million,” according to Darwin Porter and Danforth Prince’s book, “Peter O’Toole: Hellraiser, Sexual Outlaw, Irish Rebel.”
Their affair ended when Audrey discovered she was pregnant.
But she had no idea whether the father was her husband, actor Mel Ferrer, or Peter. Sadly, she suffered a miscarriage.
But Peter’s charms failed to win over his co-star in 1968’s “The Lion in Winter.”
“Katharine Hepburn called me a pig and a drunkard,” recalled the eight-time Oscar nominee. “But I can’t think of any other ladies I missed!”
