Owen Wilson discusses arguing with Woody Harrelson in Poker Games
Ever since the Hollywood poker ring involving Tobey Maguire, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck and Leonardo DiCaprio was exposed, it’s been a while since we’ve heard much about stars playing poker. But Owen Wilson recently shed some light on a game he often plays with Willie Nelson and Woody Harrelson in Maui, Hawaii, where their summer retreats are.
According to the Little Fockers and Midnight in Paris star, these poker games can get a little heated. “Our games, there’s a lot of arguing, tearing up the cards …. people can get sideways,” he said on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
When pressed about who the worse offender was, Wilson said, “I sometimes think that Woody can kind of get on my nerves …. he won’t know the rules to the game or he’ll start lecturing me; I’ll have, like, a slice of pizza and he’s like, ‘Dude, that gluten is gonna kill you.’”
Okay, so maybe these arguments aren’t quite the intensity of Mike McDermott squaring off against Teddy “KGB” with his bankroll and life on the line. But it’s still somewhat entertaining to hear a huge star like Wilson talk about his Maui poker nights. If you’d like to watch the humorous clip, check it out below.
