Money seems to grow on trees for some celebrities, but it appears it’s not enough for some –
to the oh-so-predictable bad boy behaviour of head lothario Harry Styles. A sucker for the
ladies, the teeny bop singer is alleged to have ignored the protests of his management team
and gone on a mammoth gambling session, thanks to the temptations of an older blonde
who encouraged him to gamble away thousands on a game of roulette. Dirty Harry indeed.
The casino lifestyle may come easy for some, and for we mere mortals it may be more
realistic to dabble in gambling at online casinos like Casino Tropez – but it seems the flashing
lights are a flame to the moths of the celebrity world. Here’s a look at some other celebrities
that you didn’t know liked to dabble in a spot of gambling.
This spiderman certainly does whatever he can – including gambling away huge amounts
of his hard, crime fighting earned money. Naughty Tobey isn’t known for doing gambling in
the conventional way however – in a 2011 report by Star magazine, the star was alleged to
have made up to $300,000 dollars from illegal gambling rings in unlicensed hotels. Texas
Hold ‘Em Poker was Tobey’s weapon of choice – and it’s not just him who was involved in
the behind-closed-doors gaming.
Even the pretty boy Pearl Harbor star was alleged to have been involved in Tobey’s no-
limit games. Sadly for Ben, gambling had become something of an addiction, and he had
been treated 10 years earlier for gambling addiction at a rehab centre, at which he was also
treated for an alcohol addiction. Ben’s gambling has got him in hot water with his lady friends
too – his naughty habits allegedly did nothing for his marriage to Jennifer Garner, while an
underground poker night he hosted in 2003 did not exactly please his then beau Jennifer
They say life imitates art, and nothing is more fitting than the case of George Clooney, who
won our hearts back in the early noughties in Ocean’s Eleven. Sadly for George however,
he cannot claim to have the same luck as Danny Ocean. In fact, co-star and good pal Matt
Damon even ratted him out as the ‘unluckiest gambler in the world’ back in 2011 – claiming
he saw George lose 25 straight hands in a row. Whoops – looks like good looks and money
can’t help you win everything in life.
Who said boys had to have all the fun? Beautiful American Pie star Shannon Elizabeth has
also been known to dabble in poker from time to time. Dabble is perhaps an understatement
– the star’s passion for poker has led to rumors that she has even set up her own gambling
ring right from her very own home – now there’s a poker night!
