Tobey Maguire Sued Over Illegal High-Stakes Poker Games


Wow, we always sort of pictured Tobey Maguire as a quiet, smiling quasi-wiener of a guy, maybe with some blueberry pie smeared on his face that he doesn’t know about. However, it seems the actor has been dropping that Cider House Rules money when he shouldn’t have, and now Tobey Maguire’s gambling winnings are being called out in a lawsuit that makes Tobey seem shockingly hard-core. Allegedly Maguire frequently takes part in illegal poker games populated by celebrities and millionaires (which fits with what we suspected about famous people). Maguire might have been able to keep his Bond-esque nighttime activities private if he hadn’t won money from Bradley Ruderman, a hedge fund manager who used his clients money in the games, thereby enabling card shark Maguire to buy all the short-sleeved button downs his mild heart could desire.

Ruderman is currently in jail for defrauding investors, and trustees of his bankrupt company are trying to get back the reported $25 million he lost to various high-rollers, including $311,200 currently stuffed in Maguire’s wallet. Matt Damon, Leonardo DiCaprio and Ben Affleck also took part in the poker games, but aren’t being sued, despite how cool that would make all of them seem right now. Other players such as The Notebook‘s Nick Cassavetes have been named in the lawsuit, meaning that while we were weeping into our sweatshirts over Noah and Allie finally getting together in the rain, Cassavetes was making it rain hundos all over the Hollywood elite.
