Both Ben Affleck and Sacha Baron Cohen have joked about their nude scenes in the Friday, January 22, episode of Variety Studio: Actors on Actors.
In 2014, Ben Affleck sparked a lot of public attention when he filmed a full-frontal shower scene for his movie Gone Girl.
Ben Affleck while sitting down with Sacha Baron Cohen for the Friday, January 22, episode of Variety Studio: Actors on Actors, joked that people did not appreciate his jaw-dropping nude scene as much as they should have considering he was brave enough to strip down in front of the camera.
“So obviously, you’re a two-time Academy Award winner, a multiple Golden Globe winner, you were nominated for Best Depiction of Nudity, Sexuality or Seduction by the Alliance of Women Film Journalists in Gone Girl. What did that mean to you?” the Borat star, 49, asked.
After Affleck said that “everyone dreams of” scoring a nomination in the category (yes, it’s a real one), Baron Cohen asked whether the Way Back star was “furious” when he lost to Scarlett Johansson for her NSFW scene in Under the Skin.
“I mean, you do so much frontal, you’ve been so naked, and yet you were overlooked,” Affleck responded.
