Ben Affleck Finally shaves the Beard After the Oscars

Ben Affleck shaved his beard hours after winning the Oscar for Best Picture. The beard must have been Ben’s good luck charm, because he jettisoned it at the “Argo” after-party at Craig’s restaurant in the hallway right outside the bathroom. As for why he shaved in the hallway, it had a convenient plug. Apparently a bunch of people took a whack at the beard.

Also, the reasoning for the beard in the first place? When Affleck re-emerged as a Hollywood star he supposedly had facial hair. I guess everyone has their own superstitions and in this case Affleck’s certainly worked. Still should have gotten best director though, right? Can’t win ‘em all.
