He shaved off his beard!
And Affleck didn’t wait until he was home for the great Oscar shave of 2013. The star actually shaved his beard at a private afterparty for the acclaimed film at Craig’s in West Hollywood.
“It took place in the hallway,” a source at the party tells omg!. “The family wanted him to shave.”
So, there you have it! It was most likely a deed performed at the request of Affleck’s wife Jennifer Garner. And certainly, daughters Violet, 7, and Seraphina, 4, prefer kissing a more smooth-faced daddy! Yahoo! Movies reported back in October that Affleck, 40, took grief from his two daughters about his unshaven appearance as well as his hairdo for “Argo.”
