On Tuesday, June 24, Vanity Fair published an excerpt from high-stakes poker game host Molly Bloom’s new book, “Molly’s Game.” The poker game host told some stories about celebrity poker players like Ben Affleck, Tobey Maguire, and
Bloom writes about Affleck, “Ben showing up for my poker game was undeniably monumental but the butterflies I was feeling now were excitement that he was playing at my table, that he was a part of my game… He was tall and handsome, with a relaxed charisma that not all icons have in person.”
Then Bloom wrote about one time when Rick Salomon, a “videographer, director, and co-star of an infamous sex tape,” joined the table with Ben Affleck. “As Rick took a seat, I saw him focus on Ben. I saw the wheels turning. He had no filter.”
Salomon asked Affleck, “Hey, yo, did Jennifer’s ass have cellulite on it, or was it nice?”
Affleck’s cordial response about his former fiancee was, “It was nice.”
Bloom writes, “The table laughed and the ice was broken. These may have been larger-than-life characters playing with larger-than-life numbers, but at the end of the day, guys are guys — and strangers quickly became familiar friends at a poker table.”
