Poker Princess Molly Bloom: Ben Affleck Said Jennifer Lopez Had 'Nice' Butt

Poker princess Molly Bloom, who organized exclusive high-stakes gambling parties for Hollywood's elite, is dishing on action on the tables.

In her memoir 'Molly's Game', the 36-year-old calls Tobey Maguire the "worst loser" and a man who wasn't afraid to embarrass his opponents.

"I had taken to calling him Hannibal Lecter after a recent game," she recalls. "That evening, I watched as he talked a guy into folding a winning hand, also known as 'folding the nuts' in poker terms."

"'I swear on my mother's life I have you beat,' he said, convincingly and earnestly. I wouldn't lie to you, man.' His opponent had gotten confused. I had watched him stare at the cards he was holding, knowing full well he had the winning hand but suddenly unsure after Tobey's performance," she writes.

"Tobey was incredibly convincing, and so earnest that the guy eventually, although reluctantly, gave in. To add insult to injury, Tobey then victoriously showed his bluff. To me, his actions were in really bad taste."

"Tobey was the worst tipper, the biggest winner, and the absolute worst loser, but I had to worry about my job security if he lost," she says because he was well connected.

She says he once offered her a thousand dollar chip to "get up on that desk and bark like a seal."

But after she didn't take the bait, he became upset and said: "I'm not kidding. What's wrong? You're too rich now? You won't bark for a thousand dollars? Wow, you must be really rich."

"He gave me an icy look, dropped the chip on the table, and tried to laugh it off, but he was visibly angry."

Bloom also recalls an exchange between Rick Salomon and Ben Affleck, who she describes as a "smart player who liked to limit his downside."

"As Rick Salomon took a seat, I saw him focus on Ben. I saw the wheels turning. Oh God, I thought, don't let him say anything embarrassing. Rick had no filter," she writes.

"'Hey, yo, did that Jennifer Lopez (photosJennifer Lopez photos)'s ass have cellulite on it, or was it nice?' The table went silent. Ben looked at Rick. 'It was nice,' he said and pushed into a huge pot. The table laughed and the ice was broken."
