LOS ANGELES, Feb. 26 (UPI) --
Actor-director-producer Ben Affleck
shaved his beard off at a West Hollywood Oscar party after his film "Argo" won the top prize of Best Picture, E! News said.
"He did it to mark the end of a chapter. It had that ceremonial quality to it," an insider told E!
The shearing took place at Craig's restaurant Sunday night.
Affleck, 40, is married to actress Jennifer Garner. They have three young children together.
