From the Academy Awards to . . . the couch! A clean-shaven Ben Affleck hit the John Varvatos 10th Annual Stuart House Benefit in West Hollywood on Sunday, March 10 with wife Jennifer Garner -- two weeks after Affleck's emotional Best Picture win for Argo at the Oscars.

While the A-list couple were suitably dressed up for the fundraising event in honor of Stuart House, a rape treatment center, Affleck explained to Us Weekly that he's been reluctant to get out of sweats post-Oscars. "Luckily, I've been able to just enjoy my good fortune the last couple of weeks, just sit back and take it in, not do anything, eat ice cream on the couch," the actor, director and producer, 40, said. "It's been a nice time, hanging out with my wife, that sort of thing, and we're enjoying it."

Parents to kids Violet, Seraphina and Samuel, Affleck and Garner, 40, hit the red carpet together and were affectionate as cameras snapped. ""He looks pretty sharp today," said Garner, who encouraged her man to shave off his beard at an Oscars after party. "He's wearing mostly John Varvatos today."

Affleck added to Us that he's happy that the busy awards season is behind them. "Now, when I go out and spend my time at events I can choose events like this that have some cause, some benefit other than trying to go after something for my movie," he explained of promotional duties. Nothing is wrong with that but it's also important to balance that with this type of activity that feels good."
