Ben Affleck & James Franco: Palm Springs Film Fest!

Ben Affleck and James Franco suit up for the Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala held at the Palm Springs Convention Center on Saturday (January 8) in Palm Springs, Calif.

James, 32, walked the red carpet with his 127 Hours director Danny Boyle, who picked up the Sonny Bono Visionary Award at the show.

Ben picked up the Chairman’s Award for high standards for artistic achievement. “They told me it was the Chairman’s Award, so the first thing I did was grow a chairman’s beard,” Ben joked.

Also pictured inside is The Fighter‘s Mark Wahlberg.

    Ben is very weird with that beard! Seems to have put over 20 years more ..

  • Still looks good

    Ben looks a lot cleaner then Brad with a beard. remembering when Brad actually had beads Ughhhhhh in his ratty looking beard. Ben looks spotless, he can carry it, BP can’t.

  • Still looks good

    @Noticias de Famosos:

    No he does not. Brad put on 20 years with his beard. Brad looks 1000X better clean cut, which is never is anymore.
    Ben looks ok with his beard……he’s cute regardless.

  • Snicker

    James Franco = complete douchebag…the whole package.
    Ben Affleck = dull and mediocre but seems to lighten up when not around wifey.
    Mark Wahlberg = um…I’ve got nothin.

  • ewww

    Franco is way up his own a$$ almost as bad as Emilio Hirsch.

  • Shamrock

    Congrats to Ben!! He is developing into a fine artist with multi-talents and is recognized for his honorable and worthy projects~ Look forward to the Golden Globes and Oscar’s!!

    Maybe, now that he has won the CHAIRMAN’S award , he can lose the beard and rock a clean, smooth, debonair look for the next award!! Change it up~No matter what, he is a winner and wears it well:)

    @Amazed: He gets paid to smile when he is working. He only smiles at home with wife and kids. He does not want his his family time in tabloids and website. After all, he is not Tom Cruise.

  • Maya

    @Snicker: Ben Affleck and his wife are in their relationship for each other and not for the press like other Hollywod couples. They keep their PDA private and not for gossip sites and tabloids. What a concept?

  • SarahNL

    Finally, James Franco shaved his mustache! Much, much better now. xD
