Rocker Billy Joel rejected his reputation as a ladykiller at last night's Tony Awards (08JUN03).

The singing sensation - who was awarded the Best Orchestrations gong for his work on MOVIN' OUT - is astonished that people perceive him to be a hellraiser, because in reality his life isn't that exciting.

He laughs, "Everyone thinks I live in Hollywood. I live in the Hamptons year round. You know how boring it is in the winter. Nothing's going on there. To be a celebrity bachelor, um I've read some interesting stories about me; it's insanely untrue but very sexy. It's been an amazing life.

"Even when I was a celebrity husband it was interesting and I was married twice. I was married for twenty years to two different people but that's a long time to be married! Ask anybody."
