At this past Sunday’s press conference for Argo – Ben Affleck said his family disliked his look while filming the movie – set in 1979. The director and actor was at the Beverly Hilton Hotel talking to reporters when he explained his shaggy locks and facial hair period.
People reports he said, “My family unanimously hated the look.”
Even Violet, 6, and Seraphina had their opinions.
“I kept trying to tell my littler kids [that this was for work]. But “they would say, ‘Why can’t you shave your … prickles? Shave your prickles!’”
He added, “My dad was like, ‘What kind of work would want you to look like that?’”
When one reporter told Affleck she liked his shaggy style, he joked, “You didn’t have to kiss me!”
