Ben Affleck And Tobey Maguire's Dirty Poker Secrets Revealed In New Tell-All Book

Jun 13, 2014 09:30 AM


From Ben Affleck reportedly dishing the dirt on former girlfriend Jennifer Lopez's famous butt to Tobey Maguire allegedly being a weirdo d-bag, all sorts of secrets will be revealed in Molly Bloom's new book about her involvement in a famed celebrity poker ring.

Bloom, 36, who is nicknamed the Poker Princess, is publishing a book called Molly's Game, and in it she reveals how some of Hollywood's biggest names behaved when they were at the gambling table.

At one particular get together, Bloom claims Pamela Anderson's husband Rick Salomon asked Affleck, "Did Jennifer’s ass have cellulite on it, or was it nice?" According to Radar Online, who obtained excerpts from the tell-all, Ben thought for a moment, and then, in front of a room full of celebrities, said, "It was nice." Aside from gossiping about his exes, how were Ben's skills? Bloom says the star is "a smart player who liked to limit his downside."

While Maguire is reportedly a rock star at strategy, it sounds like his manners are far from exemplary. Bloom described the actor as "the worst tipper, the best player, and the absolute worst loser." Maguire once told Bloom to "bark like a seal who wants a fish" for a chip. "I'm not kidding," he allegedly said to her. "What's wrong? You’re too rich now? You won’t bark for a thousand dollars?" Bloom said that she refused to do it, and Maguire subsequently gave her "an icy look, dropped the chip on the table and tried to laugh it off but he was visibly angry."

Bloom claims Maguire hosted many of the games at his Los Angeles mansion, and that he was very insistent on getting the scoop on new players beforehand. "His words came out slowly, sounding soft on the outside but with a sharp-edged threat at the center." Ooooh, scary!

Who knew the Spider-Man star was a vintage swim trunks kind of guy?

Tobey Maguire took his children Ruby and Otis to Ralphs on Monday, and later the 37-year-old actor and his adorable kids went to a friend's Labor Day bash.

Interestingly enough, Tobey is currently shooting a film titled Labor Day, which is about a woman and her son who give a wounded criminal a lift, but "as police search town for the escaped convict, the mother and son gradually learn his true story as their options become increasingly limited."

We love a good thriller! The flick also stars Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin, and it will be out sometime next year.

Tobey Maguire Agrees To $80,000 Settlement In High-Stakes Poker Lawsuit

Nov 28, 2011 02:45 PM

tobey-maguire-poker-suit.jpgAfter being slapped with a lawsuit for his involvement in a string of allegedly illegal poker games, Tobey Maguire has agreed to settle in bankruptcy court for $80,000.

The Spider-Man star was one of 22 people sued for winnings paid out by con man Brad Ruderman, who was later convicted of wire fraud and investment fraud. A trustee from Ruderman Capital is trying to recover the $25 million allegedly lost in these poker games, which were said to have involved fellow A-list stars like Leonardo DiCaprio and Ben Affleck.

Maguire reportedly won more than $300,000 in poker, and in the lawsuit, the bankruptcy judge determined the poker was "unlicensed and the winnings were ill-gotten gains from Ruderman's clients," according to THR. Maguire presented the settlement on November 18, and in addition to the sum of money he's prepared to hand over, he also denies any knowledge of Ruderman's Ponzi scheme and agreed not to make any claim on the bankrupt estate. A hearing date has been set for December 21, and if the judge approves Maguire's settlement, he will be released from the ongoing case.

Tobey Maguire Says He Did Not Participate In Illegal Poker Games

Jun 30, 2011 03:25 PM

TobeyMaguireDeniesPoker230.jpgTobey Maguire has filed legal documents saying he did not take part in illegal poker games, though he admits that legal games occurred.

Maguire is being sued by the bankruptcy trustees of a convicted felon who Maguire supposedly won money from -- the trustees want their more than $300,000 back.

Maguire argues that the games were not "controlled games," which would mandate that the host have a license. He admits that he was invited to play, but denies that there was a regular roster of celebs.

Reportedly, the poker games included such A-listers as Ben Affleck and Leonardo DiCaprio and thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of dollars were exchanged.

Tobey Maguire Sued Over Alleged Illegal Gambling

Jun 22, 2011 02:20 PM

TMaguireJMeyer042710_03_X17230WM.jpgHoward M. Ehrenberg, a trustee for Ruderrman Capital Partners, has named actor Tobey Maguire in a lawsuit alleging the Spiderman star was involved in an underground gambling ring.

According to the lawsuit, Maguire pocketed more than $300,000 while taking part in unlicensed poker games between 2006 - 2009.

The suit also states that Bradley Ruderman, who managed the Rudermann Capital Partners fund, used money from investors to pay off his massive debt from Texas Hold 'em games. These games reportedly involved A-list actors like Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck.

In the legal papers, it says:

    “As the Poker Games, the operators of the Poker Games, the dealers for the Poker Games, the equipment used at the Poker Games and the locations of the Poker Games were unlicensed and improperly conducted pursuant to state and local laws, rules and ordinances, to the extent that a player were to ‘win’ at one of the Poker Games and to the extent that the player was not paid for the winnings, the player had no legally enforceable contractual right to receive payment, and had no right to enforce the winnings in state or federal court."

Read how the A-list poker games are described in the lawsuit ... after the jump.
