Ben Affleck fans just got another reason to watch the movie Gone Girl — it features a full-frontal Affleck nude scene.
Ben recently talked to MTV News about his nude scene, and it probably wasn’t the best idea to mention the word “warts” while talking about his junk.
“It’s ironic, because David [Fincher] said to me from the beginning, this is a warts and all movie. It can have no vanity. You have to see the naked underbelly of this character.”
In other words, Ben Affleck wants ladies to know that he’s not going to look like Joe Manganiello from Magic Mike. However, Affleck fans might get to catch a glimpse of Ben’s beefy Batman V Superman bod. According to The Daily Mail, the actor recently told ITV that it was really hard to hide his fit physique while shooting Gone Girl.
“I was trying to juggle this thing because that character is supposed to be out of shape, hungover and and puffy and I had to train ahead of time for that movie [Batman] for about a year.”
Ben Affleck pointed out that Gone Girl character Nick Dunne is supposed to look more like the geeky fans of superheroes who would rather eat cheesy puffs and read comic books than head to the gym.
“That wouldn’t look right to have some guy who is in great shape because all Nick Dunne does is eat junk food and drink bourbon,” Affleck said.
Perhaps, Ben’s buff body played a part in David Fincher’s decision to make his nude scene very short and sweet. Affleck emphasized that Gone Girl only features “very brief nudity.” Or maybe there was another reason Ben Affleck didn’t want his little Batfleck to get too much screen time.
“You should know it was very cold,” Affleck warned moviegoers. He also offered a suggestion for the best way to watch his nude scene.
“It’s IMAX penis! You’ve gotta pay fifteen bucks to see it in 3D… it’s better in 3D.”
That’s one very clever ploy to get moviegoers to spend more money on a film.
Obviously Gone Girl isn’t all about the nudity. It tells the story of Nick Dunne, a man in a failing marriage who gets accused of murdering his wife Amy (Rosamund Pike). There’s a pile of evidence pointing to him, but he might not be the murderous monster that he seems to be. The cast also includes Neil Patrick Harris, Tyler Perry, Casey Wilson, Sela Ward, and Emily Ratajkowski.
What are you looking forward to more; seeing Ben Affleck as the Dark Knight in Batman V Superman, or watching him go to a dark place in Gone Girl? Gone Girl hits theaters on October 3, and Batman V Superman won’t swoop into the cinema until March 25, 2016.
