It's common knowledge that Hollywood celebrities play poker. What isn't so commonly known is that many of them have Twitter accounts where they tweet about it all.

We've put together a handy list of the biggest and best actors, musicians and Hollywood personalities that play poker and have Twitter accounts.

This list, and others, can be found by following PokerListings.com on Twitter.

Shannon Elizabeth has been a favorite of young men everywhere since she went topless in American Pie and since a big part of the poker world is comprised of young men it's no surprise she was embraced as a poker player with open arms.

She's been at the World Series of Poker on countless occasions and so far she's cashed four times.

Elizabeth plays poker for entertainment but also uses it as a vehicle to raise awareness about her charitable organization Animal Avengers.

Lou Diamond Phillips has an IMDP list longer than Phil Ivey's Hendon Mob record and he's been playing poker through it all.

So far his tournament record is blank but he plays at the WSOP and if he keeps his nose to the grindstone he's sure to break through with a cash before long.

Danny Masterson played Hyde on That 70's Show, and it was on that set that the home game he plays in developed. With his brother Chris and costars like Laura Prepon, Danny is rumored to play a regular home game somewhere around California.

Favreau has been a guest on poker television shows and even has an affiliation with Hollywood Poker.

 

Celeb Twitter Avatars

Norm Macdonald

This list would have a big hole in it if Norm Macdonald wasn't included. We're not sure how legit this twitter account is but it does look pretty pro.

Norm is a gambler and a poker player and can be found in the pits and parties of Vegas. He also plays the WSOP religiously.

 

Celeb Twitter Avatars

Michael Phelps

This might be the best Twitter account we've ever seen. Hundreds of thousands of followers and not a single tweet!
