"Jennifer Tilly has made quite a name for herself in the world of professional poker, but it's a name she may soon be leaving behind, according to her stop by 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS).
"When I was an actress, I would go on the set, I'd say one line, I'd collect my bill for $30,000 and I would go home. When I'm playing poker ... I put my $30,000 on the table, I play for 20 hours, there's nothing left.", Tilly explains.
Tilly also adds, that "all your time away from the table second-guessing everything you did and didn't do". Actors don't have to agonize nearly as much about the work they've done once it's over and they're off the set. Plus, they get paid no matter what happens.
Tilly has made live tournament cashes for almost $700,000 since 2005, and she won her only WSOP bracelet so far from the WSOP Ladies Event in 2005 for $158,335."
