We hardly knew ye (beard)…

Ben Affleck debuted a serious new beard nearly two weeks ago when he was spotted on a scouting excursion in Boston for his new project, Live By Night. And just like that, he’s back to being a man with smooth cheeks again.

On Tuesday (Oct. 13), the Gone Girl actor stepped out to support Cary Fukunaga and company at a Los Angeles screening of Netflix’s Beasts of No Nation. Affleck, who stayed casual in grey jeans, a black sweater and a leather jacket, looked a few years younger with his cleanly shaven face as he posed alongside Fukunaga, the film’s star Abraham Attah, and John Legend.

Beasts of No Nation arrives on Netflix and opens in limited release on Oct. 16.
