LOL I love this.

The last time Tobey Maguire starred in anything, it was 2014’s Pawn Sacrifice, where he played Bobby Fischer and that was meh. But- the dude has nothing else on the docket: like literally, nothing in pre or post production on his IMDB. But, if the dude wanted to work, I bet he could. Instead, it fees like he might be having a bit too much fun for his wife’s taste with buds Ben Affleck and Leo DiCaprio, and not working to build up his career to a better place.

Did Jennifer Meyer bet on the wrong horse when she married Tobey Maguire in 2007? In the years since Spider-Man and Seabiscuit, Tobey, 40, has become more of a permanent fixture at the high-stakes poker games than in Hollywood.

“Tobey likes to pretend he’s both picky and proud when it comes to his career,” says a pal. “But the truth is, his phone hardly rings and Jennifer’s grown tired of his gambling.”

While his wife has gone on to establish herself as Kate Hudson’s go-to jewelry designer, Toby has earned a dark reputation, having once reportedly ordered a woman to bark like a seal for a tip at the felt table.

“Jennifer is at her wits’ end. It’s been two years since Tobey booked a gig. She finally told him to cash in his chips – and get a job.”

That “bark like a seal” story is disgusting and true…it came from a Vanity Fair story about the underground poker games amongst the hardcore LA gambling set. And Tobey IS that, but he’s also as smart as he is a dbag. He’s made serious money playing at those underground games, so maybe he considers it his “job” now. In any case, if I was Tobey’s wife I’d be pissed.

PHOTOS: ‘The Great Gatsby’ premieres in New York City!

Last night the world premiere of ‘The Great Gatsby’ was held in New York City. Entertainment Weekly was on hand for the premiere, and reported back from the evening!

From a seemingly never-ending red carpet lined with a Tiffany blue backdrop (the jeweler was one of the sponsors of the opening) to the corrals of fans gathered around the Lincoln Center to applaud and squeal at every arrival, the red carpet felt more like a lead-in to a big awards show than it did a typical movie opening.

While Jay-Z whisked inside with a quick wave to fans, the film’s stars — including Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire, Amitabh Bachchan –  stopped to chat on the carpet. Here’s what they had to say:

Leonardo DiCaprio, on relating to his character, Jay Gatsby: “This novel took on a whole new meaning for me when I became an adult. I really connected and was fascinated by the loneliness and isolation of this man that is a part of this new America that is emerging as this superpower,” said DiCaprio, who we’re pretty sure we saw taking a selfie inside the theater. (See, he’s just like one of us!) “Here he is trying to connect with the blue-blood sort of aristocracy of East Egg and become a part of that world, but he’s somebody that came from nothing. He is holding on to this mirage, this green light, that is Daisy, and desperately trying to fill avoid what is within him, but he’s not in reality. The ship has sailed, so to speak.”

Carey Mulligan, who plays Daisy, on working with Leo:
“Leo made it so easy. I was really daunted. I’ve been a fan of his. I’ve looked up to him since I was a kid. It was a big deal,” said Mulligan. “He was so kind, warm and generous and sweet and really kind of involving. We talked about the scenes a lot, and we talked to [director Baz Luhrmann] a lot, and we just kind of focused on the work. We had a really good time playing [our parts].”

Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan, who plays Meyer Wolfshiem, on working in Hollywood for the first time.”
“[Lurhmann] was on a private trip to India. I don’t know why he just wanted to meet me. Last year, he asked me if I would just do a small cameo in his film, and I said ‘Sure.’ This is more a friendly gesture than anything else,” said the actor, 70, who has nearly 200 film credits to his name. So, what was it like working on his first Hollywood movie? “Fantastic. Just working in that atmosphere, seeing the professionalism, the amount of research and the effort that has been made toward detailing. It’s superb,” said Bachchan, whose fans chanted his name and flagged posters that referred to him as “The Greatest Gatsby.”

Tobey Maguire, on portraying Nick Carraway: “I think we’re pretty true to the book.” says Maguire. “In the book, Nick is observing a lot of the action but we did find a way to show the audience how the action affects Nick, and I think that was one of the keys to our strategy to making the film.”

Baz Luhrmann, on the first order of business before making the film: “Is to go to Leonardo DiCaprio and say, ‘Would you come on this road with me and Tobey Maguire?’ We were together way before we got the greenlight.”
