According to TMZ, Ben Affleck was banned for life from Hard Rock Hotel Casino in Las Vegas for counting cards, but a source close to Affleck said that’s not the real story.
The Argo director was banned from playing blackjack at the casino after security told him he was “too good,” the source, who asked to remain anonymous, told BuzzFeed. The casino said he could play a different game, and later got him and wife Jennifer Garner a car back to their hotel.
The couple were in town to spend some time together before Affleck heads to Detroit to shoot the new Batman movie.
A rep for Hard Rock Hotel told BuzzFeed, “Mr. Affleck, a valued guest of Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, is not banned from our property and is welcome back any time. It is the policy of the hotel to not comment on any casino customer’s gaming play.”
Affleck’s publicist told Buzzfeed they have no comment on the story.
