Ben Affleck stepped out of his car and headed into the TED, Technology, Entertainment and Design, conference in Long Beach today. He wasn't the only star spotted at the annual meeting since Reese Witherspoon also made an appearance yesterday. Ben was fresh faced to attend the event after shaving his beard immediately following the Oscars. Ben had apparently been letting his facial hair grow out of superstition during award season, and it looks like his method worked since he took home the Academy's highest honor of best picture for Argo. His hairy face wasn't the only one on display at the Oscars though, with George Clooney, Bradley Cooper, and Hugh Jackman all rocking scruff on the carpet as well.
The end of award season hasn't meant the end of celebrations for the Garner-Affleck family since they marked little Samuel's first birthday on Wednesday.
