The Oscars winning director celebrated his win by taking a load off.

“He did it himself at the restaurant,” an insider revealed to Us Weekly, adding that his wife and George Clooney were egging him on as he shaved in a hallway. After his movie Argo snagged Best Picture, the actor shaved off his good-luck beard at George Clooney’s bash at Craig’s in West Hollywood. ”The whole family was tired of the beard!” adds the Us source. “Jen actually brought the clippers to the party.”
As for why Ben felt the beard was good luck, TMZ says “Ben had facial hair when he re-emerged as a major Hollywood player.” ”He did it to mark the end of a chapter,” adds an E! Online source. “It had that ceremonial quality to it.”
