Ben Affleck shaves his beard and the world takes notice. Hot off of "Argo" winning big at the Oscar's, Affleck shaved off a beard that he has been growing for what seems like more than a year. According to a report from late Monday (Feb. 25), he did it to mark the end of one chapter in his life. It was certainly a good day to do it, especially after "Argo" won Best Motion Picture.
The person who is probably the most excited about this is wife Jennifer Garner, who has been beside him every step of the way. It's certainly possible that Affleck was also keeping the beard, which was prominently featured in the film, through a superstition that could have affected the outcome of Oscar voting this year.
Affleck is certainly at the top of Hollywood after accepting several awards for the film, but it has been noted that he was snubbed when it came to a nomination for Best Director. He had actually won that award at several other acceptance dinners in the past few months, but for some reason he didn't even earn a nomination when it came to the Oscar's.
It's clear that when headlines are reading "Ben Affleck shaves beard" that everyone is paying very close attention to his next move. After winning the Oscar for Best Motion Picture, movie fans are definitely eagerly awaiting his next project. This is definitely celebrity news that will follow him around and the first question talk show hosts will probably ask is what happened to that beard.
