By On

Following his huge Oscar win and several other awards from the past couple of months, 'Argo' phenomenon Ben Affleck has shaved his beard! We have watched him grace the red carpet and deliver heart-warming speeches with the rugged look but now it's time to say bye to that and hello bare-faced Ben!

It was while celebrating the movie's win during an Oscar after-party at a restaurant in West Hollywood that the American hunk made the decision to shave off his facial hair.

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

The thrilled star who was snubbed by the Academy for Best Director gave an emotional acceptance speech that included heaps of thanks, love for his wife Jennifer Garner and kids and lessons he's learned surviving in Hollywood.

"You have to work harder than you think you possibly can. It doesn't matter how you get knocked down in life because that's going to happen. All that matters is you have to get up.”

We cannot wait to see the new look!
