Celebrities Who Have Gambling Problems

This list of celebrities addicted to gambling is loosely ranked by fame and popularity. It's no secret that stars love to spend their money. It's common for famous people to purchase everything from luxury cars to real estate, but there are a growing number of celebs who would rather gamble away their earnings at casinos and poker tournaments. Some of Hollywood's biggest movie stars have reportedly been addicted to gambling, including Ben Affleck, Charlie Sheen, and Tobey Maguire. Placing bets is also not a just man's pastime. There are plenty of female celebrities equally addicted to gambling such as actress Shannon Elizabeth, who is a poker pro.

NBA great Charles Barkley admitted he has lost over $10 million at casinos throughout his adult life. We gathered a list of famous gamblers in the list below.
