And what did Ben Affleck do after his Argo won Best Picture on Sunday night? He took it all off – his facial hair, that is.

A friend of the actor-filmmaker's confirms to PEOPLE that following the Oscars ceremony Affleck, 40, shaved his beard at Craig's restaurant in Hollywood, – where wife Jennifer Garner and pal and Argo co-producer George Clooney were celebrating with him.

"The whole family was tired of [his] beard," says the friend.

Sure enough: "Jen brought clippers!" he added.

According to, the shave took place in the middle of the restaurant's hallway.
