Ben Affleck shows off his trophy in the press room backstage at the 2014 Hollywood Film Awards on Friday (November 14) at the Palladium in Hollywood.
The 42-year-old actor accepted the award for Best Film for his hit movie Gone Girl and he referenced his full frontal nude scene while thanking director David Fincher.
“First, I want to take this opportunity to thank David, for the way he treated me,” Ben said. “In particular, we had a shower scene in the movie and David assured me, because trust is essential as an actor, ‘Listen, if we tilt down we’ll never go far enough to see anything.’ So, thank you David, and 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… That’s a real gift.”
Ben later joked about how there were no nominees during his speech. “I hope you don’t think it presumptuous that I wrote something when they told me there were no other nominees. I felt cautiously optimistic,” he said.
