Molly Bloom became well known for her involvement in underground high stakes poker games that featured Hollywood’s elite and famous. But now that she’s had time to gather incriminating and/or embarrassing information on these stars, they are sweating bullets. Bloom is currently working on a memoir that is sure to reveal some dirty little secrets.
The “Poker Princess” hosted card parties in the past for celebrities like Toby Maguire, Matt Damon, Leonardo DiCaprio and Ben Affleck. She was also involved in a completely different poker ring that was run by the Russian mob. And while Bloom faces charges for her involvement in this ring, her focus appears to be on ratting out celebrities like Maguire and Damon.
The 33-year-old plans to reveal game-changers like what certain celebrities do when they’re holding good or bad cards. Maguire is said to be a top celebrity poker player, so it’s likely that he doesn’t want Bloom explaining his tells to the world.
Other aspects that Bloom wants to squeal on include Matt Damon once losing $25,000 in a single night (not bad for high stakes standards), how the buy-in for some cash games was as high as $100,000, and some of the locations where the games were held, including Tobey Maguire’s L.A. mansion.
Taking everything into account, it’s doubtful that Molly Bloom really has enough insight into poker to accurately pin Maguire and others’ tells. However, it’s a guarantee that she’s got some interesting stories to tell from games that involved many of Hollywood’s elite. The only question is how long it will take for Bloom to release her memoirs, seeing as how she’s currently struggling with charges stemming from the Russian-run gambling ring.
