Ben Affleck says he suffered many, many bad hair days for the sake of his art in Argo.
The actor, 40, rocked a distinctive shag and beard for the film, based on the true story of six Americans held captive in Iran amidst its revolution in the 1970s. "I hated it!" Affleck admitted at a Saturday press conference at the Toronto Film Festival for the movie. "I had to grow out this Davy Jones/Barry Gibb thing I had on my head. I knew I was doing the movie far enough in advance that I knew I could grow it out."
"People that I've worked with. It's part of our work. Unless you're a major star and have this image," Arkin explained, seemingly referring to Cruise, 50 -- who in fact transformed into a late-middled aged, overweight man in Tropic of Thunder. "I don't know a working actor in a period piece who wouldn't. It's part of our job. I'm sorry... did I speak out of turn? I've cast a terrible pall!"
