30 Famous Celebrities Who Are Supposedly Bad In Bed

There are plenty of celebrities out there who have made the most of their fame by playing the field. But some of them might wish they hadn’t once embarrassing rumours about their sex lives come back to haunt them. That’s right – unfortunately for some celebs, there are plenty of groupies and ex-lovers out there who are more than willing to tell all about their experiences.

In the article below, we’ve put together a list of 30 famous celebrities who are supposedly terrible in bed.

30. Eminem

As a rapper, Eminem has a reputation to uphold when it comes to prowess with the ladies. However, unfortunately for Slim Shady, his ex-wife Kim Mathers has revealed all about the rapper’s lacklustre performance between the sheets. She might not be the most stable source in the world, but still, she’s kept up this criticism for a good few years now!

And we can’t really blame her, especially when you consider that Eminem has previously admitted to hitting his ex-wife and even used one of his songs to talk about kidnapping and murdering her. Kim famously revealed that her ex-husband wasn’t very well-endowed, which instantly lowered Eminem’s street cred in the world of hip-hop. But even though size doesn’t really matter, apparently the rapper doesn’t know what he’s doing in bed, either.

Kim once went on the record and stated: “If you’re going to have sex with Marshall, make sure you have a little blue pill, because otherwise it does not work.” Yikes! That’s definitely some welcome advice for any future lovers out there. Will Slim Shady’s little friend please stand up?

29. Madonna

Madonna has always been a bit of a wild child; since her divorce from Guy Ritchie, she’s become a cougar and dated some much younger male models, leading most people to assume that she knows what she’s doing when it comes to the bedroom. However, apparently Madonna isn’t all that she’s cracked up to be.

And who would know better than Ritchie, who was married to the singer for eight years from 2000 to 2008? The director took a very public swipe at his ex-wife and what it was really like being intimate with the Queen of Pop. Ritchie basically said that he hated Madonna’s highly-toned physique during their marriage, and compared having sex with the singer to ‘cuddling up to a piece of gristle’. Harsh!

We hope their kids don’t get to read about that remark, Guy. It turns out that the ‘Material Girl’ singer may have actually been exercising a little too much though. Apparently Madonna’s epic four-hour workouts once left her marriage dry for 18 months. Yikes. With rumours of separate bedrooms whirling, nobody was that surprised when the couple announced their divorce.

28. Drake

Drake has made millions of dollars from pretending to be some sort of sweetheart. He’s also had a steady stream of admirers to choose from, including celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez and Rihanna. But if you think his reputation automatically makes him some sort of lothario under the covers then you’d be dead wrong.

According to one of his ex-girlfriends, model Cyn Santana, the Canadian rapper isn’t that exciting in bed. At all. Santana said that his skills were “unimpressive” and that he was actually quite selfish. This is hilarious and extremely revealing considering the fact that Drake is constantly making himself out to be some sort of feminist ladies man. But that’s not the only rumour floating about when it comes to the rapper’s sex life…

As well as being accused of having a small package, numerous groupies and exes have confirmed that he likes to receive plenty of… backdoor action. Of course, this might just be a massive rumour made up by some bitter ex-girlfriends, and it would be fine anyway, but it doesn’t quite match the image Drake projects.

27. Katy Perry

She may have kissed a girl and liked it, but now we’re not so sure if the other woman was that into it… Singer Katy Perry has been subject to plenty of rumours that she’s not that great in bed, especially considering the fact that her ex-husband Russell Brand basically came out and publicly humiliated her with some off-colour remarks.

Brand showed that he wasn’t a gentleman at all after admitting during one of his stand-ups that he used to try and think about any other woman apart from his wife when the pair were getting down to it. “When you’re a monk, you’re not allowed to have sex with anyone,” he said. “When you’re married, it’s one person. That’s one more than a monk. It’s not that different. I’d be having sex thinking, ‘Think of anyone, anyone else’.”

Brand also went further and claimed that his ex-wife wasn’t ‘freaky’ enough between the sheets for him. We think that these comments make Brand look a bit nasty to be honest. Not being able to equate sex with the woman you love might be something to talk to a therapist about, rather than the general public.

26. 50 Cent

50 Cent is yet another rapper to make the list thanks to his lack of prowess. Maybe the problem is with rap culture, which places way too much emphasis on machismo? Anyway, rather than overanalysing, let’s get down to the rumours – one of 50 Cent’s many groupies once revealed that she was extremely disappointed with the rapper’s skills in bed.

Apparently the woman in question was all fired up for a night of passion and made her way back to 50’s bedroom. But then the ‘Candy Shop’ rapper turned into a frightened mouse once the door was closed. She stated: “All of a sudden he started acting real shy, like he was scared or something. And he was saying corny lines like ‘you know I really like you’ … After a couple of minutes of that, I had to tell him – are we going to get it popping or are we going to talk?”

She then continued: “I couldn’t believe it – here was 50, supposed to be all tough, acting like a 14-year-old boy…” Yikes! Poor old 50 Cent. This account doesn’t sound like it’s that made up either. We’ll try to give him the benefit of the doubt.

25. Paris Hilton

Paris Hilton was arguably the first reality star – she even had a sex tape leak before Kim Kardashian. That infamous video, along with her wild partying ways and ‘That’s hot’ catchphrase, led many a red-blooded male to assume that Hilton was great in the sack. Unfortunately, one of her famous exes came forward to shut down that rumour straight away.

Celebrity watchers might have forgotten that Paris used to date Backstreet Boy Nick Carter. Well, it turns out that Carter wasn’t impressed with Hilton’s partying and the effect it had on her lovemaking skills. Carter once stated: “She was a drunken prude who as far as I can see did not really like sex. She relied on substances and drink to give her confidence and was more often than not too wasted to perform.”

In Paris’ defence, these remarks came only days after the pair split up, so it might just be all sour grapes. But people who have watched her infamous sex tape have criticised the star for looking bored, so who knows! There might be some truth in it after all.

24. Colin Farrell

OK we’ll admit – this rumour has kind of ruined the Irish actor for us! Colin Farrell has long been known as a hell-raiser, and with his bad boy status and rugged good looks, most women have assumed that he knows what he’s doing when it comes to the ladies. Sadly they might be very wrong…

In this case, the random source is none other than Woody Allen’s former nanny, Angelique Jerome, whose image certainly seems more suited to the celebrity lifestyle than babysitting. She was left sadly disappointed after her short-lived dalliance with Farrell.

Although the actor might seem like a tiger on screen, according to Jerome, “behind closed doors he’s as wild as Mickey Mouse.” Eek. And that’s not the only problem, either. Apparently he didn’t last very long each of the three times they hooked up – Jerome estimated that he probably lasted “10 minutes in total”. Jerome had some sage reflections on why the actor has such a reputation as a lothario: “Maybe he has lots of women because he’s not that good in bed. Maybe they don’t want to stay.” Burn!

23. Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie used to be known as one of the sexiest women in the world, and even used to have a reputation as a bit of a freak in bed. Probably considering the fact that she once had sex in a limo with ex-husband Billy Bob Thornton on the way to an awards ceremony.

But apparently that excitement didn’t last long for Thornton, who once had some very harsh words for his former wife. Thornton managed to shatter the (wet) dreams of male fans everywhere with his critique of Jolie’s bedroom skills. “Sometimes with the model, the actress, the ‘sexiest person in the world’, it may be like literally f***ing the couch.” Wow! A bit harsh there, Billy Bob!

Apparently he was trying to make the point that just because you’re having sex with a model, that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s amazing. But the ‘sexiest person alive’ dig isn’t very veiled! It seems as though Thornton likes his women a bit plainer: “There may be this swarthy, little, five-foot-two stocky woman who just has sex written all over her,” he once daydreamed.

22. Bradley Cooper

Bradley Cooper was once named ‘Sexiest Man Alive’. But as with Angelina above, that doesn’t necessarily mean he has a natural way with the ladies. Rumours have been swirling about Cooper’s lack of magic for years, mainly thanks to his regular co-star Jennifer Lawrence (who once described him as a ‘wet kisser’ and said he sweats from his butt).

Some of Bradley’s exes have apparently also come out and stated that the actor is simply boring in bed. And his strange penchant for putting on accents during lovemaking probably isn’t doing Bradley any favours… Apparently he tries to add some romance to proceedings by putting on a fake French accent. God no! We can’t think of anything worse – apparently one of his ex-lovers once likened the experience to being in bed with Pepe Le Pew.

Oh dear – we’re not sure we’ll ever be able to take the actor seriously again after that one. He should lean into it and sign on to a Pepe Le Pew film – to write, direct and sing. Thanks for ruining our love of Bradley Cooper forever! It turns out the dream man can sometimes be a bit of a damp squib. From the butt. Poor Irina Shayk…

21. Taylor Swift

She might be a country and pop darling, but Taylor Swift is one female celeb who has been criticised for her love-making skills. Swift has quite a few famous notches on her bedpost, including Jake Gyllenhaal, John Mayer, Tom Hiddleston and Harry Styles. So you’d think with all that experience under her belt, Swift would know what she was doing with the opposite sex.

Apparently not. While some people have assumed that her inability to hold onto a boyfriend is down to the fact that she publicly disses all her relationships in her songs, it might have something to do with her sex life instead. Anonymous sources have claimed that Swift is way more of a make-out session kind of girl and generally avoids getting down to business.

Apparently the rumours all started after her break-up with Styles, who claimed that she was very nice and all but “didn’t put out as much as he would’ve liked.” Then again, the press would be calling her some choice names if she did the opposite. It’s a lose-lose situation for T-Swizzle.

20. Elvis Presley

Not the King of Rock and Roll! Elvis Presley was arguably the biggest sex symbol of the 1950s. His concerts were drowned out by screaming female fans and women everywhere used to go wild for his gyrating hips. But apparently Elvis didn’t have a clue what he was doing when it came to sex…

Presley must have got a lot of groupie action back in the day, but it didn’t seem to help with his bedroom skills. Apparently one of his (famous) ex-girlfriends, actress Natalie Wood, was so exasperated with their love life that he actually told him he “didn’t know how to screw”!

This was later confirmed by his friend Byron Raphael, who used to send women Elvis’ way in the late 60s. Apparently many of them would leave the bedroom unimpressed, teaching rock and roll groupies everywhere a harsh lesson in reality vs expectation.

19. Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer Aniston has always been a private individual. She gives interviews from time to time but rarely speaks out about her love life (unless it’s being constantly thrown in her face *ahem* Brad and Ange). Unfortunately for the actress her ex-lovers have been a bit more forthcoming.

One anonymous source confirmed that Aniston is ‘cold’ in bed and doesn’t seem to enjoy sex that much at all – apparently she’s guilty of making excuses to get out of it. We like how the source gets to stay ‘anonymous’ and let Jen take the hit for their disappointing love life.

Still, the rumours have followed the actress for a while now so it’s left a question mark hanging over her head. Maybe someone should ask John Mayer, who seems to love raving about his ex-partners in the media (scroll down further)?

18. Ben Affleck

It’s fair to say that Ben Affleck has had a chequered romantic history. With plenty of engagements and flings under his belt, most people would assume that Affleck knows what he’s doing when it comes to the ladies. But that assumption came under scrutiny when his ex Jennifer Lopez appeared on Watch What Happens Live.

Lopez was asked to reveal the best and worst lovers she’s ever had, which is always awkward when you have a string of famous exes. Andy Cohen also asked her to specify who was better in bed: singers, dancers or actors. J.Lo instantly replied:

“I have to say, in my limited experience, anybody involved in music. So, I would say singers or dancers.” Lopez deliberately chose two answers, leaving out her actor ex… The rest of her lovers or ex-husbands have been either dancers or singers. Ouch. Sorry Ben!

17. Sophie Monk

Model Sophie Monk recently decided to ‘out’ herself as bad in bed! Fans of the beautiful Aussie model might not enjoy reading her own (very honest) self-assessment of her bedroom skills. Monk revealed in an interview: “I’m probably bad in bed, actually. I think I am a dud, honestly. No one is going to tell you you’re bad in bed.”

Aw! We appreciate the honesty, Sophie. Monk went even further though and tried to explain what it is about herself that makes her a ‘dud’: “I’m not a very sexy person, I’m very awkward.”

It’s unclear whether Monk was just going through a period of low self-esteem when she made the comments. After all, her ex-fiancé Benji Madden had just started going out with Paris Hilton (who as we know, isn’t very good in bed either!)

16. Nick Lachey

Nick Lachey is famous as a member of boy band 98 Degrees. He was also married to Jessica Simpson for four years from 2002 to 2006. And it seems as though the spark might have died from their marriage thanks to…the size of Nick’s penis!

How do we know this? Simpson herself decided to reveal details of their sex life to the press. Nice one Jessica… In a particularly candid interview, Jessica revealed: “Nick’s small package was a problem sometimes. Like the first time we had sex, to tell you the truth, I didn’t really feel much, I faked the whole thing. I felt sorry for him, I still loved him though.”

Yikes – that’s a pretty harsh assessment from someone who famously saved themselves for marriage. Still, Nick currently has three kids with his second wife Vanessa Minnillo, so he must be doing something right!

15. Brody Jenner

Reality star Brody Jenner always liked to pride himself on his bad boy reputation. After The Hills, he even hosted his own reality programme entitled Sex With Brody. But there’s a chance he was all talk and no trousers if these remarks are anything to go by…

In The Hills, Brody had a famous romance with fellow reality star Kristin Cavallari. But she wasn’t very impressed with their sex life and made sure that everybody else knew it once things ended. Cavallari said that Brody was ‘vanilla’ in bed and didn’t like to go too far ‘outside the box’.

Like any good reality star, Brody had his own opinion on Kristen’s less-than-complimentary assessment. Jenner retorted that “she was obviously just bitter about something.”

14. Maria Sharapova

Tennis star Maria Sharapova used to be a bit of a sex symbol. But Adam Levine of Maroon 5 decided to shatter the illusion when he spoke candidly to the press about his sexual encounter with the tennis star, which in his eyes was extremely disappointing.

Levine said that he had thought “like a lot of guys, that she’d be the loud screaming type”. That’s nice. Levine then continued: “She wouldn’t make any noise during sex…She just lay there like a dead frog. She even got angry if I started to moan, said it ‘ruined her concentration.’”

The singer even said that he was so disappointed that he went on the anti-anxiety medication, Paxil, for a month. What a loser! These remarks just make Levine look like an idiot…

13. Tiger Woods

Maria isn’t the only sports star to come under fire for her performance off the court… Tiger Woods was caught up in one of the most famous sex scandals of all time, when it was revealed in 2009 that he had had hundreds of extra-marital encounters behind his wife Elin’s back.

From nightclub managers to groupies, Woods had done the dirty with too many women to count – which led many people to assume that he was some sort of firecracker in the bedroom.

However, it seems that in Tiger’s case less might be better than more. Waitress Jamie Grubbs had a 31-month fling with the golfer and told The Sun that the sportsman was a huge disappointment. Apparently he was just horrible under the sheets and didn’t really know what he was doing. Yikes! Not the best summary of his sexual exploits.

12. Hugh Hefner

Hugh Hefner has made millions from selling sex. So one would assume that the Playboy magnate would have plenty of tricks up his sleeve when it came to women. However, his widow Crystal Harris decided to dispel that illusion with some very revealing info about Hugh.

Apparently Hefner never bothered to undress for sex and the experiences were often a little ‘short-lived’. According to Harris, Hefner could only manage 2 minutes at a time. To be honest, we’re not sure it’s all too surprising that an 88-year-old wasn’t a dynamo in the bedroom.

What did she think was going to happen?!

11. Judd Apatow

Like Sophie Monk, Judd Apatow has been very honest about his own sexual failings. The director of hit comedies such as The 40 Year Old Virgin and Knocked Up has featured a lot of sexual issues in his movies. But apparently Apatow isn’t all that great when it comes to doing the deed.

The source? Himself. Apatow was once describing his very first sexual encounter and revealed just how embarrassing things got afterwards. Apatow stated: “I said to the girl after my first time, ‘Hey, was it good for you too?” And she said, “Well, I guess it’ll get better eventually.”

Yikes! In fairness, he was describing his first ever time so we’re guessing he’s had lots of practice since then. He does have two kids with Leslie Mann, after all.

10. Charlie Sheen

Charlie Sheen has acquired a reputation as a bit of a bad boy. His multiple encounters with women who work in the sex industry (he once dated two porn stars at the same time) have led many people to assume that he’s a bit of a sexual adventurer.

However, while he might like getting down and dirty, that doesn’t mean that Sheen is particularly great in bed. Apparently one of his ex-wives used to complain that he was extremely selfish in bed and didn’t care about her pleasure.

This one is more of a ‘he said, she said’ scenario so we’re not 100% sure if it’s true or not. Still, at the same time it doesn’t really surprise us either.

9. Keith Olbermann

Keith Olbermann is a sports commentator and former host of MSNBC. He’s not really the type of guy that you’d assume would have loads of women clamouring after him – and it seems as though the ones who are must be left disappointed.

Apparently Olbermann had a one night stand with a woman who was more than willing to tell-all about their encounter. An anonymous source one stated: “I pretended he knew what he was doing. I adored the guy. I didn’t want him to think he was a dud in bed.”

Poor Olbermann! At least she faked it… She did blab to the press afterwards though. Doh.

And now for 8 celebrities who are amazing in bed…

We’ve been through 22 famous faces who are supposedly bad in bed. But what about the stars who are amazing in the sack? Scroll down below to read about 8 celebrities who are meant to be unstoppable in the bedroom…

8. Jessica Simpson

Ladies man John Mayer once went a little bit overboard in his praise for Jessica’s bedroom antics. The singer was basically breathless with admiration for his ex-girlfriend during an interview with Playboy: “Yeah, that girl is like crack cocaine to me… Sexually it was crazy. That’s all I’ll say. It was like napalm, sexual napalm …”

Mayer proceeded to sing her praises to the publication: “Have you ever been with a girl who made you want to quit the rest of your life?” “Did you ever say, ‘I want to quit my life and just f**kin’ snort you? If you charged me $10,000 to f**k you, I would start selling all my shit just to keep f**king you.’”

Wow! That’s probably the best write-up anyone could ever hope for. Jessica’s current spouse Eric Johnson must be a lucky, lucky man.

7. John Mayer

Mayer shouldn’t be too modest about his own achievements in the bedroom. Apparently his prowess is unmatched, if one of his former lovers is anything to go by. Mayer his probably best-known for dating a string of celebrity women, but one unnamed source couldn’t resist dishing on his sexual ‘talents’.

The source stated: “John is good in bed. Not just good, but sensational. Every girl I know who has slept with John says it was the best sex of their life. I’m not sure what exactly he does in bed, but after girls sleep with him, they’re ruined. They get totally hung up on him and want more! Whatever John’s secret is, he should market it. He could retire from the music industry.”

Again, there’s not really anything else you can add to that except – wow! We wonder if he’s paying these women or he really is that good…

6. Alex Rodriguez

Alex Rodriguez is another guy with an excellent reputation. ‘A-Rod’ might be best-known for his antics on the baseball pitch, but Rodriguez makes sure to keep himself busy with ‘exercise’ when he’s not playing sport too. The baseball star has been known as a ladies man for years…

…And it seems that most women can’t get enough of him. Stripper Candice Houlihan reflected on her passionate fling with the baseball star when it had been revealed that Madonna was dating Rodriguez. Houlihan said: “If it’s true Madonna has sampled Alex’s charms, then she’ll know what I mean when I say she’s a lucky lady. And if not then I can tell her he is the most amazing lover she’ll ever have and she should give it a whirl.”

“I know she’s very sexually experienced but I bet even she hasn’t experienced anything like Alex before. What he can do to satisfy a woman is amazing—he’s very gifted in that department. The two nights I shared with him were magical and given half the chance I would do it again in a heartbeat—even though I felt bad when I found out about his wife. In that way he’s just like any other guy.” Wow – you can’t really get much better than that (except for the cheating part)!

5. Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan is another celeb with a party girl rep to uphold. And she has one of her famous exes to thank for confirming that Lohan is crazy in the bedroom. Wilmer Valderamma thought it was a good idea to dish about all of his ex-lovers, one of whom is the Mean Girls star.

Out of all his flings, Valderamma said that Lohan was far and away the best in the bedroom. Nice! The actor also praised Jennifer Love Hewitt and gave her an 8 out of 10 scoring.

Sadly actress Mandy Moore didn’t rate quite as highly. Valderrama stated: “The sex with Mandy was good, but it wasn’t like warm apple pie.” Right…

4. Robert Pattinson

Twilight fans everywhere will be drooling at this particular info… Apparently heart throb Robert Pattinson is an excellent lover and one of his one-night stands wants everyone to know about it! An anonymous source once revealed all about their encounter: “We just had this chemistry between us that made our kisses amazing. I felt electricity go between us!

“I’m really passionate, as is he. That’s why, no matter how much we fought, it was always amazing in bed! We’d glance at each other throughout the night because it made it more exciting when we got home.”

“The tension was so strong, we couldn’t control ourselves. It was amazing!” Nice… We’re just going to go have a Twilight marathon!

3. Simon Cowell

Simon Cowell isn’t a likely candidate for ‘best in bed’. He’s been dogged by rumours that he’s hiding his sexuality for many years. But with a string of beautiful exes under his belt, it seems as though he’s had plenty of practice with the opposite sex.

And one of those ex-lovers once confirmed that Simon has some amazing bedroom skills. Apparently Sinitta once said of Cowell: “It’s true. He’s rich and good [in bed].”

Nice one Cowell! He probably won’t be able to sign up to Britain’s Got Talent with those kind of X-rated skills though…

2. Courtney Love

It’s a bit of an understatement to say that Courtney Love is a wild child. She’s a rock star who was once addicted to heroin and had an ill-fated marriage to Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain. And it seems as though the ex Hole front woman has some hidden talents up her sleeve.

Ex-Blur bassist Alex James once confirmed that she was amazing in bed: “A total rock chick – brilliant. It was more than one night – a proper fling. She’s an amazing woman, very intelligent and a really fun gossip – and wild in bed.”

It seems as though Courtney’s brags about her sexual prowess do have some truth to them!

1. Anne Hathaway

Anne Hathaway is not somebody we would have expected to appear on this list! Actor Jake Gyllenhaal has starred in a few movies with the actress, and has a theory about how good she is in bed thanks to their sex scenes together.

Gyllenhaal is convinced that the Les Miserables actress has excellent ‘rhythm’: “I recommend getting in bed with Anne Hathaway to any man.” His bizarre praise for the actress’ love-making continued: “I’m lucky. I have had brief cinematic sex with her in ‘Brokeback Mountain’ and again a number of times in ‘Love and Other Drugs’ .”

“There’s something about the way Annie and I both work which is inherently very musical. It’s all about rhythm. There’s a rhythm to writing, there’s a rhythm to sports and there’s a rhythm to sex.” Sounds like he wants to get lucky…
