Just like the rest of us, Hollywood’s elite love to gamble. We’ve rounded up some of the more famous stars that have been spotted at the tables or the slots.
Afflek’s affinity for Poker has always been clear, and he’s often been spotted at the tables. He once won $1500 in 12 minutes, and has had many other big wins along the way. His battles with alcoholism have also been well chronicled, and the star has admitted that he isn’t always the most sober when playing a hand, and many of his losses have been down to being inebriated, but that some of his biggest wins have come about that way too!
The Spider-man star has all but vanished from the scene, both in terms of movies and gambling, but Maguire was once a high stakes Poker player that risked millions on a hand. He was caught up in a scandal that involved the notorious Molly Bloom, and claims of money laundering, illegal gambling and other activities followed him wherever he went. He’s apparently still trying to claim some of the money he lost back, saying that he had no idea what he was doing was illegal…
Blonde bombshell Anderson loves gambling so much she was once married to pro Poker player Rick Salomon. The 3rd Mr Anderson didn’t stick around too long, but Pammy’s love of gambling remains. In fact, the Baywatch star has even licensed her image to a few slots games that pays homage to her time in the high cut red swimsuit. Rumour is that she loves spinning the reels so much; she’s even been spotted playing her own game when not on a promotional outing!
While not a player who goes in regularly for the hugely high stakes games like Ben Affleck and Tobey Maguire, Leo still enjoys his time at the tables. He was also involved in the Molly Bloom scandal, but was painted as a casual player, unlike his friends Affleck and Maguire who were clearly high rollers.
Former One Direction singer and now solo artist Harry Styles is often spotted gambling, and he has a penchant for Roulette. The heartthrob has been known to dodge his management team and sneak off to the tables when he is supposed to be elsewhere, and has also gotten into trouble for trying to gamble while underage. Now that Harry is of legal age, he’s welcome at the same tables in Las Vegas he was previously bared from.
Controversial Two and a Half Men star Charlie Sheen has made headlines with his antics in casinos. The Hollywood bad boy has enjoyed plenty of all night gambling sessions in the casino capitals of the world and is a huge Blackjack fan. He also loves fantasy sports betting and has thrown huge sum of money around supporting his favourite teams. A while ago he claimed his big nights out were all done, but whether that is true remains to be seen.
