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.
