Oscar winner, Casey Affleck showed up to last night's award ceremony looking... well... scruffy. When asked about it on the red carpet, Affleck revealed that it was for a role, saying ' 'I know it's not a great look but I'm stuck with it for a few weeks.'
It didn't take Twitter long to give their opinion:
I know Casey Affleck is growing his beard out for a role but he could have at least combed or trimmed that beast for these #Oscars— Carlos Reyna (@C_RReyna) February 27, 2017
Casey Affleck must be playing Peter Griffin in a live-action version of FAMILY GUY, which is the only reason I can think of for that beard. pic.twitter.com/e9ToQlfXKf— hellresidentNY (@hellresidentNY) January 9, 2017

Despite his tainted reputation over sexual assault allegations from 2010 which was settled out of court, Affleck received the award for his performance in 'Manchester by the Sea.' During his acceptance speech he made no mention of the controversy, however he did say:
“Man, I wish I had something bigger and more meaningful to say.”
