We are fascinated by celebrities. The world around us is being emulated by just about everything that they do. We dress like them; we eat like them and almost live or lives like them. Whenever we find a celebrity that likes to do the things that we do, it is a real novelty. Some celebrities have found some real pleasure in gambling and some of them are even really good at it. Here are 5 celebrities that emulate us, by enjoying what we also enjoy,
Ben Affleck is a brilliant actor, a great writer and even an accomplished director. Oh, and did we mention that he was Batman. What could be better than that? Our Bruce Wayne apparently also loves poker. He has played many poker tournaments and has apparently won over $1 million in his many games. He has even hosted a celebrity poker tournament, where he invited other celebrities to play poker and all proceeds went to charity.
Switching between superheroes, we go from DC to Marvel. Our 2002 Spiderman, Tobey Maguire, also loves a good game of poker. Even before Maguire was an actor, as a teenager he fell in love with the game of poker and started to harness his poker abilities. Maguire was also involved in a long series of poker games that was used as the creative process to create the movie and book ‘Molly’s Game’. He has also played poker against Ben Affleck.
Many people look at Paris Hilton and see only a socialite girl who is riding on the coattails of her famous daddy Mr. Hilton – who created the Hilton hotel chain. What many people are not aware of is that Ms. Hilton is also a very accomplished business woman and quite the poker player. In one of her visits to her favourite place in the world – Las Vegas – she won over $30 000. She apparently also regularly plays mobile poker under various pseudonyms.
Jennifer Tilly has been entertaining us for decades. From voicing cartoon monsters in ‘Monsters Inc’ to portraying the crazy murderous ‘Bride of Chucky’. Tilly is also a semi professional poker player.

Even though the amazing actor started his career in the 1980’s, it is only really in 1991 when he starred in the movie ‘Thelma and Louise’ that we started noticing him. Since then, we have been hanging onto his lips with every movie that he makes. He never had an interest in gambling. But all of that changed in 2001 with the movie ‘Oceans 11’. In preparing for his role, he learnt how to how to play Black Jack as well as Poker. Both games he now loves.
