Ben Affleck shaved his beard in a hallway at the "Argo" after-party at Craig's restaurant in West Hollywood. Why in the hallway? It had a convenient electrical plug and most likely more space for the “bunch of people” who “took a whack at the beard” reported TMZ on Feb. 25, 2013.
Only a few hours after winning the Best Picture Oscar for “The Argo,” Ben Affleck’s good luck charm had done its purpose and was ready to be discarded.
While 40-year-old Jennifer Garner reportedly said that she was not the only person who was tired of the beard but also the kids, 7-year-old Violet, 4-year-old Seraphina, and 1-year-old Sam, and some relatives, one wonders who really prefers Ben Affleck’s smooth face.
At least Jennifer was not alone in her quest for a beardless hubby. US Weekly reported on Feb. 26, 2013, that fellow “Argo” producer George Clooney, some other friends, and colleagues were also “egging him on.”
So now the two-time Academy Award winner, who also won Best Director at the BAFTA and Golden Globe Awards, is said to be a beardless again but so far no pictures have emerged.
On Feb. 26, 2013, the Los Angeles Times wrote, “Congrats, Ben! The clean-shaven look has always suited you.”
Does everyone agree? Beard – some beard – or no beard for Ben Affleck?
