Fidel Castro had world's ‘highest body count' and would meet two women a day

Fidel Castro had world's ‘highest body count' and would meet two women a day

The former president of Cuba died in 2016 aged 90

Fidel Castro had a bit of a reputation for sleeping around and would have sex with at least two women a day, an insider has alleged.

The late 90-year-old was the former president of Cuba and one of the longest-serving leaders in the world.

His passing in 2016 continued the long-standing debate on whether he was a positive or negative influence.

Supporters believe he gave Cuba back to its people after toppling the government in 1959.

Yet his critics would argue he was a dictator.

Despite being one of the most divisive figures in history, he became one of the longest-serving leaders in the world and remained in power for 47 years, from 1959 to 2006.

However, if it wasn't for his 'all the incredible women' he slept with, he wouldn't have 'stayed on as long' as president, an ex-Castro official named 'Ramon' has claimed.

The Cuban dictator allegedly slept with 35,000, Ramon told the New York Post.

"He slept with at least two women a day for more than four decades – one for lunch and one for supper," the insider said.

"Sometimes he even ordered one for breakfast.

"I don’t think he would have stayed on as long as he did if not for all the incredible women he had access to as president."

Well it seems that actor James Franco will play Castro in an upcoming biopic about the leader's daughter, Deadline has claimed.

The publication reports that the 44-year-old has landed the role of the Cuban revolutionary for Miguel Bardem's Alina of Cuba.

The film will focus on Alina Fernández Revuelta, who exiled herself to Spain after years of being one of her father's most outspoken critics.

She lived in Cuba until 1993 when she fled to the European country using using false papers and a wig.

Mía Maestro has been cast as Natalia 'Naty' Revuelta, who engaged in a romance with Castro and fell pregnant with their child.

The film's lead creative producer, John Martinez O’Felan, told the publication: “Since the inception of the film, our focus has been to produce an artistic piece of modern Hispanic history, with the vision for the project as being truly inclusive through uniting actors and creatives from both intergenerational and recent Latin roots from the U.S, Latin America, and the world."

There is currently no release date for Alina of Cuba.
