A tell-all biography claims that legendary actor Peter O'Toole bedded over 1,000 women including Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor and Princess Margaret.

The claims have been made in a new explosive book entitled 'Peter O'Toole: Hellraiser, Sexual Outlaw, Irish Rebel'.

The biography, written by Darwin Porter and Danforth Prince states that the Connemara actor was intimate with some 1,033 women including elite Hollywood stars such as Hepburn and Taylor.

"Off-screen, O'Toole starred in week-long binges and sex orgies of near biblical proportions," author Danforth Prince claims.

According to the book, the lothario also had an on/off affair for nearly a decade with Princess Margaret.

The Laurence of Arabia star is also said to have slept with famous bombshell actresses including Jayne Mansfield, Anita Ekberg and Diana Dors - in order to win a bet with his friend.

O'Toole allegedly embarked on a long romance with screen icon Elizabeth Taylor, despite the fact that he was close friends with her lover Richard Burton.

"She tells me I'm much better in the sack, at least more reliable than you are," the late O'Toole is believed to have said to Burton.
