Not even Ben Affleck can stop talking about his Gone Girl full frontal nude scene. The Oscar winner joked about the much-talked-about (quick or you’ll miss it!) moment while accepting the Best Film award at the 2014 Hollywood Film Awards on Friday, Nov. 14.
“There are a lot of people to thank but first I want to take this opportunity to thank David Fincher for the way he treated me,” Affleck, 42, said of the drama’s director. “In particular, we had a shower scene in the movie and David assured me — because trust is essential with directors and actors — ‘Listen, if we tilt down we’ll never go far enough to see anything. So, thank you David,” he joked of showing off his manhood.
He added: “I’d like to thank you for keeping the set cool because if you’re going to have one chance for America to see your junk, you want it to be cold. It’s a gift.”
An insider tells Us Weekly that Affleck, who work a Gucci Made to Measure suit, arrived to the event just 30 minutes before taking the stage, and sat down next to his costar Emily Ratajkowski. His ex-fiancee Jennifer Lopez, meanwhile, was in the audience when Affleck talked about his privates.
Lopez and Affleck have remained amicable since splitting back in 2004, with the “Booty” singer even tweeting a photo while catching Gone Girl in theaters last month. On Nov. 3, she also discussed the infamous “Bennifer” years during a Today show interview with Maria Shriver. “It was probably my first big heartbreak,” she admitted.
