How Old Were These Celebrities When They Lost Their Virginity?
A major rite of passage in life is losing one’s virginity. It’s like a first impression; you only get one chance with it. We all remember how we did the deed for the first time. Several of our favorite celebs and musicians have not been shy about revealing key details about losing their virginity in and to the media.
We’ve rounded up some of the most interesting devirginized stories! Find out who turned in their V-Card at 13 while in a band; who listened to Jeff Buckley in the front seat of a car while having sex for the first time; who may or may not have waited for her husband; and more!
Daniel Radcliffe – 16
Harry Potter — well, actually, the adorably nerdy actor who played Harry Potter — was reportedly just 16 when he became a man. The older woman was his ex Amy Byrne, who was 23. Given that seven-year age difference, she was robbing the cradle. Unforgettable indeed.
Fergie – 18
The sexy singer was 18 when she lost her virginity. But even Fergie herself was surprised she waited that long. The mom of son Axl, born in August, said, “I’ve always been a very sexual person. I’ve always had to hold myself back. I lost my virginity at 18. But that took a lot of willpower.” At least she was an adult.
Lil Wayne – 13
It was a game for rapper Lil Wayne when he lost his virginity — literally. He was with a girl who was 13 and she was the aggressor. She was not even trying to drop hints or play around. Weezy has said that they were playing ‘Win, Lose or Draw’ when she wrote ‘F—k me’ on the board, according to the #YMCMB head honcho. Whoa!
Katy Perry – 16
Lena Dunham – 19/20
The ‘Girls’ star and writer lost her virginity in college, during sophomore year at Oberlin in Ohio, to Jonah. His name was changed to protect the not-so-innocent! She revealed she grabbed him by the scruff of the neck and went for it. “I didn’t tell him I was a virgin, just that I hadn’t done it ‘that much,'” Dunham wrote in her Rookie Magazine essay. “It hurt a little more than I’d expected but in a different way, and he was nervous, too….Afterwards we lay there and talked, and I could tell he was a really nice person. I commended myself for making a healthy, albeit hasty, partner choice. I really couldn’t wait to tell my mom.” He wanted to date; she didn’t! She “broke up” with him in the dorm laundry room. Sounds like an ep of her critically lauded show.
Paris Hilton – 15
Beyonce – Around 19
Beyonce‘s virginity loss story is a bit tricky. The Queen could have had anyone she wanted, but it sounds like she waited to get drunk in love with hubby Jay Z. She has said, “People would be surprised as to the lack of experiences I’ve had. When I was 12, 13, I had my first boyfriend, and he was my boyfriend till I was 17. At that age, that was a long time. I’ve always been very loyal and a little more mature. Though I was too young for it to really be a boyfriend— we didn’t live together, we didn’t, you know…That was my only experience with a guy, and since then I’ve only had one other boyfriend in my life — Jay.” Bey met Jay when she was 18, and they started dating around 19. The “you know” and the fact that she says the Hova was her only other BF has us wondering. You do the math…
Johnny Depp – 13
The handsome and hunky actor was in a band called The Flame when he got all fired up and lost his virginity to a groupie…while on tour, according to reports. He was 13. Wait, he toured at 13? And had sex at the same age? Whoa! Those rockers mature faster, don’t they?
Britney Spears – 14
Angelina Jolie – 14
Sex wasn’t enough for that dangerous daredevil known as Angelina Jolie, even at 14. She resorted to bloodsport of sorts. “I had started having sex with my boyfriend and the sex and the emotions didn’t feel enough,” the actress and wild child once confessed. To up the emotional ante, she grabbed a knife. She revealed, “In a moment of wanting to feel closer to my boyfriend, I grabbed a knife and cut him. He cut me back.” Thankfully she found Brad Pitt!
James Franco – High School
The actor and PhD candidate gave it up to a lovely and lucky lady named Jasmine, who he dated in high school. He admitted that he blew it when they first got together freshman year, saying, “She kind of got over me, but [then] we got back together at the beginning of junior year and dated for two years. She was my first real relationship.” That’s a claim to fame that Jaz is probably quite proud of.
Jessica Simpson – 22
The singer, actress and fashion designer was 22 when she lost her virginity to her first husband Nick Lachey, with whom she starred on ‘Newlyweds.’ J. Simpson later went on to date lots of famous men and even had ex John Mayer call her “sexual napalm.” Nick must’ve been a lucky man! We almost forget they were married. It seems like forevs ago. It sorta was — almost a decade. But N. Lachey remains forever a part of Simpson lore.
Kevin Jonas – 22
The oldest Jonas Brother was 22 when he lost it to his wife Danielle on their wedding night. She actually just gave birth to the first child, daughter Alena Rose. He even said that both were like “That’s it?” after they did the deed. Happy, happy, happy.
Tina Fey – 24
The funny gal, who is supremely sexy, has joked that she could not give her virginity away! She confirmed to David Letterman on live TV that she was 24 when she did “it” the first time. The lucky guy was her future hubby Jeff Richmond. How wonderfully old-fashioned for the man she lost her virginity to be the man she married and the father of her daughter!
