Continuing to add to his reputation as one of the most kind-hearted Hollywood actors, Ben Affleck gave a dying 18-year-old the weekend of his dreams.
Robin Leach reports in his Luxe Life blog that Affleck had been contacted years ago by a terminally ill teenager who had been told his life expectancy wasn't much more than 18 years of age. The unidentified teen then wrote a letter to Affleck, saying the one thing he wanted to do before he died was to gamble with the 'Armageddon' star.
Affleck, abiding by gambling rules, told the teen that when he was 18, his wish would be granted.
Making good on his promise, Affleck reportedly partied it up with his fan this past weekend in Las Vegas. They reportedly dined at N9NE Steakhouse with a party of 15, and later hit the blackjack and craps tables together.
Leach reports that Affleck "then led the group up to The Playboy Club atop the Fantasy Tower, where they won a dance floor VIP table and continued partying till early morning."
