Celebrity Gamblers

17 replies • Last post

I just want to share this post with you Smile

It may seem a paradox for someone imagining wealthy and popular person betting money and worrying when lost $5 at a slot machine. My argument to that is you should always take pleasure of the process, not the result! This is exactly the explanation of why so many famous and reach people are so keen on gambling! There are few of them listed below:

Feasibly inspired by starring in Oceans 11, 12 and 13, or more likely by the fact that they’re both incredibly minted, George Clooney and Brad Pitt have invested $3 billion in a Las Vegas casino complex. Let’s just hope that no one decides to rip them off while they’re at the poker table, and they are very often at the poker table, indeed.

There has always been a tradition of a few card games while away on England duty, thus Michael Owen doesn’t hide his love towards card games. Wayne Rooney realized he was in trouble after it was alleged that he owed Michael up to £70,000 in gambling debts.
Another sport representative- Tiger Woods- he seems to be a big Blackjack lover, despite the fact that this pleasure usually cost him more than the $25,000 per hand.

Her Royal Highness rarely misses a bet on the gee-gees wherever she goes. Although she never wagers on money, she still appears to be a big sports betting fan, anyway.

One of the most talented and successful, skillful and reckless, meet the big gambler- Ben Affleck! He won $356,000 at the California State Poker Championship in 2004. This made him competent to take on the big boys in the World Poker Tour final tournament the same year.

Macy Gray made a bombshell appearance in Celebrity Poker Showdown, and ended up at a highly regarded third place. Still, with the pleasant smoky poker voice, she has huge potential to go further in her gambling career.

And finally, throughout the history of the Simpsons, Marge Simpson’s “Achilles’ heel” has always been gambling – particularly the flamboyant slot machines of Las Vegas!

I knew Ben Affleck was a gambler. I remember back in my Full Tilt days I would see him at the tables or in tournaments.

Great post.

When you think about it actors should make good live poker players providing they can learn to play a solid game. At least they ought to be good at concealing their emotions or sending out fake signals. Assuming they are good actors of course...

I think I remember reading that Michael Owen also has a race horse in Dubai, I know he got into a bit of bother a few years ago gambling. I don't think it was finical bother, just more of a tendency to like it s bit much Wink

Ed you're right, facial expressions mean a lot in gambling Wink

As for Michael Owen, I think it is his capriciousness or I do not know how to call it Wink Definitely he is not doing that for earning money Wink

I've read somewhere that Spiderman was arrested or sued for illegally playing online poker, if I correctly remember...

Not arrested, he is being sued. A guy embezzled money from a trust fund and played poker with Maguire and others and lost and now the trustee wants the money back, claiming the game was illegal.

Spiderman star alleged to have run 'underground' poker games

And let us remember Meg Tilly and her sister Jennifer Tilly.

I used to enjoy watching Meg on the TV poker games.

Haha solid pair indeed. As for her sister Jennifer ... I've always found her voice annoying, ever since I saw her in the movie Moving Violations way back in the 80s!
