Ben Affleck was sporting quite the thick beard at the 2013 Academy Awards, where his "Argo" became just the fourth movie in history to win Best Picture without having a nomination for Best Director (for Affleck).

What was the first thing he did to celebrate the Best Picture win? Shave off his beard, of course.

E! Online reports that Affleck didn't even wait until he got home. He parted ways with his facial hair at an Oscar after-part at Craig's restaurant in West Hollywood.

A source tells E!, "He did it to mark the end of a chapter. It had that ceremonial quality to it."

What do you think? Do you prefer a more hirsute Affleck? »
