As such he sleeps with multiple women, to help fill the void of what he knows he'll never have.

(This may also be an expression of ValuesDissonance, in that Flynn would probably have had his career wrecked today, charm or no charm.)

Much HilarityEnsued as the other woman roundly scolded both Flynn and the girl and ordered her "niece" out of the room.

** One is well-advised to take some of his wilder claims with a grain of salt, since he's been "happily unmarried" to former ''Playboy'' playmate Shannon Tweed for over 2 decades and has had two children with her. Then again, his reputation certainly doesn't seem to bother her all that much...
* Wilt Chamberlain famously claimed to have slept with "20,000 women" in his autobiography. This, however, is all but disbelieved by [[BasedOnAGreatBigLie anyone with a brain]]. Dennis Rodman, no paragon of monogamy himself, wrote: "Wilt Chamberlain lied out of his ass and made some money. He said he slept with 20,000 women. Think about it.

When asked if Franz-Josef should show mercy to the rebels of 1848, Felix responded that "Mercy is a fine quality, but first, we must have some hangings."

In London, his [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder duplicity]] and his womanising actually earned him the nickname "The Prince of Cadland."
