Apparently Ben Affleck Is Rain Man
“Holy shit, is that a K-Maht? Definitely gotta go to K-Maht and get mah undaweah.”
Because the key, and often overlooked, component to getting into character as Batman is gambling, lots and lots of gambling, Ben Affleck was politely removed from the blackjack table at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino last week after he was caught counting cards. Or “winning” in normal people talk. TMZ reports:
According to sources, security informed Affleck he had been deemed an “advantaged player” and was no longer allowed to play blackjack at the Hard Rock. We’re told security had spotted Affleck counting cards … a gambling strategy that involves counting card values to decrease betting risk.
Counting cards isn’t technically illegal, but it can get you kicked out of a casino — which is exactly what happened to Affleck. We’re told security arranged for a car service to take him back to his hotel.
As for why the hell Ben Affleck would take his wife on a romantic getaway only to gamble the entire time, Lainey Gossip has some historical evidence to take into account. As for me, I’m sticking with autism. Batman has autism. Notice how everything has to have a freakin’ bat on it? Classic autism.
