(Radio.com) Carly Simon has had listeners guessing for decades as to who inspired her 1972 smash hit single "You're So Vain," famously refusing to divulge a name.

Simon has finally confirmed one of the likely candidates. The second verse of the song is about actor Warren Beatty, who was a notorious ladies man before settling down with actress Annette Benning in 1992.

Carly's sudden revelation comes as she promotes her upcoming memoir Boys in the Trees. During an interview with People Magazine, Simon said, "I have confirmed that the second verse is Warren [Beatty]." Later she joked that although the song is about more than one man, Warren Beatty thinks the whole song is about him.

But mystery remains, Beatty was not the only inspiration for the song. As for the other two men Simon wrote the song about, their secret is safe at the moment. Read more here.
