Before she became a household name thanks to her troubled relationship with Mel Gibson, Oksana Grigorieva had another baby with another famous guy: Timothy Dalton. She’s one of those Hollywood women who “use a series of famous partners as stepping-stones to their own notoriety,” writes Ben Widdicombe for PopEater. He lists nine more like her:

  • Alana Stewart: The “queen” of these women married George Hamilton, then Rod Stewart—and was Farrah Fawcett's close friend.

  • Angie Everhart: Married one of Stewart’s sons, dated Howard Stern, and was engaged to Sylvester Stallone and Joe Pesci. For her troubles, she got a gig hawking Nutrisystem.
  • Julie Cypher: Left famous husband Lou Diamond Philips for famous girlfriend Melissa Etheridge and even used a famous sperm donor, David Crosby, for her two children with Etheridge.
  • Mia Farrow: Married Frank Sinatra, hung out with the Beatles, married maestro Andre Previn, and ended up with Woody Allen…until he left her for her adopted daughter with Previn.
For the complete list, which includes four men as well as a woman who has four children with two—yes, two—of Michael Jackson’s brothers, click here. (More Oksana Grigorieva stories.)
