    The only thing that could be more embarrassing than having your list of sexual conquests leaked to the press is to have one of those ex-lovers vehemently deny it, but that's exactly what happened in the case of Lindsay Lohan and James Franco.

    The 28-year-old actress claims she wrote the list as part of her AA treatment and that someone subsequently stole it. But James told LA Magazine that he never slept with Lindsay, that she was a liar, and that he turned down sex with her.

    Before she was Mrs. Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively was the recipient of Parks and Recreation star Aziz Ansari's attention. According to GossipGirl.com, the 31-year-old comedian recently revealed to Howard Stern that he met the actress prior to her marriage and exchanged phone numbers, but that his subsequent text messages to her went unanswered.

  • Madonna

    Sure, Madonna has been romantically entangled with her fair share of boy-toys, but apparently not every guy is down to date the Material Girl.

    Reportedly, Madonna used the pick-up line "I'd like to know what you're thinking" in an attempt to woo R&B singer D'Angelo at her 39th birthday party, reports GQ. However, after seeing Madonna force a woman out of her seat earlier, D'Angelo rebuffed her by saying, "I'm thinking you're rude."

  • Aaron Carter

    Back in 2000, Aaron Carter and Hilary Duff were two cute 13-year-olds in puppy love with each other. Fast forward to 2014: 26-year-old Aaron is still carrying a torch for his ex and even publicly declared his love for her on Twitter.

    However, the recently separated actress, also 26, told Andy Cohen that Aaron's continued declarations of love make her "uncomfortable."

  • George Clooney

    Even the Sexiest Man in the World has been turned down! Before settling down with wife Amal Alamuddin, George Clooney was busy pursuing Eva Longoria ... while he was still dating ex-girlfriend Stacy Keibler, a fact that did not sit well with Eva.

    According to US Weekly, the film star "continued to pursue her with texts and calls. Eva made it clear to him that she would not date or be with him until he was completely single."

  • James Franco

    James Franco may have rejected Lindsay Lohan, but he’s had his own run-in with one-sided attraction. According to RadarOnline, the 36-year-old Oscar nominee became "enamored" with Kristen Stewart after meeting the Twilight actress at the Toronto Film Festival in 2012. Reportedly, he tried to set-up a dinner date, and while Kristen mulled over the idea, she ended up turning him down. Still, that didn't stop James from trying again ... but he was rejected a second time. Ouch.

  • Justin Bieber

    Most people would agree that Rihanna is totally out of Justin Bieber's league, but that didn’t stop him from trying to hit on the singer, who's six years his senior, in 2011 when he found himself sitting next to her at an NBA All-Star Game.

    "I asked her out. It didn't go so well, since I'm not with her. I asked her out and she was basically like, 'You're too young,'" he later admitted.

  • Taylor Swift

    For Taylor Swift, Bradley Cooper may just be the one who got away. Reportedly, the singer asked Jennifer Lawrence to introduce her to Bradley at a Golden Globes party in 2013, but that he turned the meeting down, saying that Taylor, 24, was too young for him.

    Considering that the actor is now dating 22-year-old Suki Waterhouse, we have to assume that he just wasn't that into Taylor and might not have wanted to be the subject of one of her songs.

  • Leonardo DiCaprio

    A supermodel who rejected Leonardo DiCaprio seems as likely to exist as a Cookie Monster who doesn't like cookies, but even handsome, successful movie stars get turned down once in a while. Apparently, Leo spent a night in Cannes in 2013 trying to put the moves on British model Cara Delevingne, only to be blown off by the 20-year-old, who supposedly thought he was "too old" and "too forward." But perhaps the actor shouldn’t feel too bad. If Cara's subsequent relationship with Michelle Rodriguez is any indication, perhaps she isn't that into dudes to begin with.

  • John Mayer

    When you have the kind of reputation as a serial womanizer that John Mayer does, you have to expect that some women might be a tad wary of your intentions. The 36-year-old singer, who has romanced everyone from Jessica Simpson to Jennifer Aniston, supposedly offered Sandra Bullock the opportunity to be "friends with benefits" back in 2011, only to have the Oscar-winning actress laugh at his proposal, reports Celebitchy.

  • Julianne Hough

    We suspect that Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe was the object of many little girls' crushes, and it seems that Julianne Hough was among them.

    When she was just 11 years old and living in London, the actress was cast as an extra in one of the Harry Potter movies and fell in love with the actor from afar.

    "I wrote him a love note," she admitted, reports US Weekly. "It was Valentine's Day and I got him the Valentino Beanie Baby. I never heard back."

    To this day, Julianne confesses that she turns and walks away from her childhood crush whenever she runs into him.

  • Jake Gyllenhaal

    Perhaps Minka Kelly wasn't a Brokeback Mountain fan or perhaps she just didn't have the heart to start a new relationship after breaking up with Derek Jeter in 2011. But for whatever reason, the actress reportedly said "thanks but no thanks" to Jake Gyllenhaal three years ago.
