The hunky actor-director, who took home the Best Picture award at the 2013 Oscars for producing Argo, finally decided to shave off his beard at an Oscar after-party, according to TMZ.
It turns out that the Gone Baby Gone director's wife, Jennifer Garner, was very happy to see the scruffy beard go, and she even "brought the clippers to the party," according to a source.
"He did it himself at the restaurant," a source says about the grooming that went on at the after-party at Craig's restaurant in Hollywood.
"The whole family was tired of the beard!" the source continues about Ben's wife and their kids.
Ben's buddy George Clooney, who produced Argo as well, was encouraging Ben to nix the beard, which Ben had grown as a good-luck charm during awards season.
"You don't want me to cut it off!" Ben joked to George and girlfriend Stacy Keibler before finally shaving. Ben apparently then went into the hallway to rid himself of the beard. Goodbye, old friend.
Apparently, the party got quite "rowdy," as Ben, George, and others were taking tequila shots.
"Ben and Jen were there for a long time — that's where he could really celebrate with the whole Argo crew," says a second source. "Ben was over the moon about the win and so happy."
Sounds like it was good will shaving.
