Stop the presses, ladies and gentlemen -- Ben Affleck finally shaved his beard, which means we can all rest easier at night from here on out. Or at least those of us who absolutely loathe facial hair can.
Yep, he busted out the razor at an Oscars after-party at Craig's restaurant in West Hollywood, and I, for one, am very relieved.
OMG. While watching the Oscars on Sunday night, I found myself grimacing over and over again at all the dudes who happened to be sporting beards and mustaches. From Ben Affleck to George Clooney to Bradley Cooper to Hugh Jackman -- it was a serious wolfman-fest.
And to put it simply, I don't get it. Especially when it comes to Ben Affleck. Yeah, yeah, I know he had to go all scruffy for his role in Argo, but still -- it just seems like such a shame to cover up a face that gorgeous.
Seriously, what's the deal with so many dudes growing beards all of a sudden? If you're one of those women who finds it remotely sexy, please enlighten me. Because every time I see a guy with a beard, I immediately get the heebie-jeebies and start itching a little bit. Something about it just looks so unkempt and blah to me, to the point where I just don't understand why someone would choose to undermine their looks by growing one.
Sure, a little scruff is kind of burly and appealing -- but full grown beards really creep me out. (They just do, ok?)
And even though Ben Affleck couldn't look bad if he tried, he still looks 1,000 times more handsome when he's clean-shaven. (Something tells me Jennifer Garner probably prefers being able to see his face too.)
You can see more of Ben's beard in this video clip. Are you glad to see his facial hair go? Or are you a beard woman?
