Happy Birthday Tobey Maguire! Did You Know The Spider-Man Actor Made Millions As A Poker Player?

Tobey Maguire rose to fame as Peter Parker with Spider-Man films but he hasn’t been that consistent with his appearances. He was a part of The Great Gatsby and was last seen in 2014’s Pawn Sacrifice.

Today, on Tobey Maguire’s birthday, we’ll be taking a look at an interesting aspect of his life. Apart from his acting skills, he was also very good at Poker. In fact, he made millions through the game. Tobey spent his childhood in poverty, so he was always driven to make big money.

In 2013, while talking to The Guardian, Tobey Maquire said, “As a kid, I was very poor. I mean, it’s all relative, but we would get groceries from neighbours. I always had a roof over my head, but I slept on couches of relatives, and some night we wandered into a shelter. My family had food stamps and government medical insurance. And I wanted to get out of that, so my ambition was initially to make money; I was pretty driven.”

“It’s about having your brain space occupied by worrying about what I’m going to eat or how I’m going to pay rent, which is something I have contended with in life. Once you’re not having to worry about that on a day-to-day basis, it allows you space to think about other things,” Tobey Maguire added.

Tobey Maguire even opened up about his drinking addictions, which he got rid at 19 years of age. He was helped by Alcoholics Anonymous. Speaking about the same, the Spider-Man actor said, “I stopped consuming any mind-altering substances when I was 19 years old. And I’ve been abstinent since then. In my late teens and early twenties, I started to do movies and got well known but I don’t think I indulged to any level that is abnormal. But I did as a teenager have some difficulty in that way and had to make some life decisions and change some of my behaviour. I got sober at 19 and have been sober since so there was no excess in that regard from 19 on.”

Writer Houston Curtis also once revealed that Tobey Maguire is really good at Poker and he is fully indulged into it. The same is the reason why the Spider-Man actor isn’t taking as many roles in films. He even stated that the actor could have made up to $30 to $40 million from the games.

It is also said that Player X played by Michael Cera in Molly’s Game was inspired by Tobey Maguire.

The Grammy-nominated pop star is soon to embrace motherhood and expected to give birth to her first child, a daughter with fiancé Orlando Bloom, in the coming weeks. Reportedly, Aniston has provided a lot of emotional support to Perry during her pregnancy.

Orlando proposed Katy in 2019 on Valentine’s Day after an American Idol taping in LA. Both came to know that they were expecting a daughter, in April during a gender reveal party at their home. It is Katy’s first-ever child. Although Bloom already has a nine-year-old son named Flynn with his ex-spouse Miranda Kerr.

As per a source revealed to The Sun, Jennifer, 51 is on the top in the couple’s list for possible godparents. She got overwhelmed with emotions when Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom asked her to be the Godmother to their impending daughter.

“[Jennifer] is pretty chuffed about it as well and cried when they asked her,” said an insider close to three of them.

Jennifer Aniston has a great experience of being a Godmother as the actress is already the Godmother to her Friends Co-star Courteney Cox’s 16 years old daughter Coco.

Katy has admitted, “I am waddling like a duck! I’m breathing heavily, I’m a full-on mouth-breather,” as she is also anticipating the August release of her fifth studio album Smile.

Johnny Depp and Amber Heard are embroiled in a legal battle. While the one related to their divorce is still pending, the on-going one is against The Sun. The British tabloid referred to the Fantastic Beasts actor as a ‘wife-beater.’ In response, he slapped a defamation suit on them. The trial is currently on-going. JD has revealed some shocking facts related to his ex-wife’s n*dity. Below is the scoop you need.

Ever since the trial began earlier this week, Johnny has been at the witness box. He has previously addressed allegations of physical assault. He even shared information regarding his severed finger and accused Amber of assault. Now, in the latest hearing, he has spoken about Heard’s hypocrisy of being n*de on-screen.

Johnny Depp confessed that he was jealous to witness his wife n*de on-screen. However, what made him uncomfortable was her actions. According to the Pirates Of The Caribbean actor, Amber Heard did not want to objectify herself.

“Ms. Heard was uncomfortable being thought of as a s*x object, and she was hoping to do better films with more meat to the part, if you will, and did not want to be objectified and did not want to have to do n*de scenes anymore,” he shared.

Amber Heard’s lawyer, however, accused Depp of trying to control her life. To this, he responded, “Well, I would never tell her what to wear, but I would certainly make mention if I thought what she was wearing was completely against the grain of what she told me her wishes were because I did not find it very helpful to what she was looking for in terms of being taken seriously as an actress. I told her she did not have to be naked in films.”

Johnny Depp even confessed that he was not okay with the Heard working with James Franco again. It was because she had allegedly told him that he tried to make s*xual advances to her. “I was uncomfortable with that, yes, because it was quite inconsistent with the feelings that she had told me of,” he said.

The actor also called this hypocrisy with Amber Heard’s words and actions “bullshit.”

“She was telling me how she did not want to be looked at as the pretty girl or did not want to have to get her breasts out or be n*de in a film anymore. And I said, ‘You do not have to.’ She wanted my advice, and I gave her my advice. Unfortunately, or fortunately, she continued to do the same type of films, and I thought to myself that she was above them,” Johnny Depp concluded.
