'Molly's Game': How Aaron Sorkin Bet The Farm On Poker Queen Biopic – And Won

BestsellerMagazine.com - CATEGORY Daily News: TITLE

Molly Bloom seemed to have it all: a job hosting high stakes poker parties for the super-rich and super-famous that brought in up to $4 million a year in tips and a chic Manhattan apartment.

But in April 2013, it all came crashing down when she was arrested by the FBI and charged along with 33 others over a $100 million illegal gambling ring and money laundering operation.

Now her dramatic fall from grace is the subject of Golden Globe nominated movie Molly's Game, based on a memoir she wrote while living at her mother's home in Keystone, Colorado, on bail.

In it, she documents her glitzy existence in Hollywood and New York, much of it spent in the ritziest hotels and rubbing shoulders with the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Ben Affleck and Tobey Maguire.

But as she exclusively told DailyMailTV, her new life in a quiet suburb of Denver couldn't be more different: meditating, spending time with her grandmother Donna and going to bed at 8.30pm.

Donna, 92, has an apartment in a sheltered living complex seven minutes' drive from Bloom's own home and, says the 39-year-old, has no idea that a movie based on her granddaughter's life exists.
