In April of this year, Ben Affleck was removed from a Las Vegas casino after he was put under investigation for reportedly counting cards, and now the Hollywood star has finally opened up about the incident, which he thinks has been blown out of proportion.

In a very candid interview with October's issue of Details magazine, Affleck confesses that he does count cards, and recalls getting caught in the act by the Hard Rock Casino's security over four months ago.

"That is a true story," the 42 year-old actor said. "I took some time to learn the game and became a decent blackjack player. And once I became decent, the casinos asked me not to play blackjack."

Affleck was allegedly caught counting cards when he was involved in a game of blackjack at a high rollers' table when a team of security informed him that he has been branded an "advantaged player."

The 'Argo' actor also told the magazine he wanted dot talk about the incident in order to "correct the impression that there's something wrong with it or that it demonstrates some, like, compulsive activity (on my part)."

"Usually, when you're a compulsive gambler, the casinos don't ask you to leave because you're beating them. You know?" he explained. "I will say this. There were a number of casinos that said, 'Hey, you can't play blackjack here. We know you count cards. But, you know, you're welcome to come, do whatever you want, see a show, have dinner. We'll comp ya. Play roulette, we know you don't play craps, but hang out, we still want your presence and business.'"

But Affleck also admitted that the tabloid stories covering him counting cards weren't exactly bad. "Usually they say, like, 'He's homeless!'" he said. "He's good at blackjack! Well, I'll take that."
