Ben Affleck shaved his beard hours after winning the Oscar for Best Picture … TMZ has learned.
The beard must have been Ben’s good luck charm, because he jettisoned it at the “Argo” after-party at Craig’s restaurant … in the hallway right outside the bathroom. As for why he shaved in the hallway … it had a convenient plug.
We’re told a bunch of people took a whack at the beard.
As for why Ben felt the beard was good luck … we’re told Ben had facial hair when he re-emerged as a major Hollywood player.
