Ben Affleck, who's film Argo took home the Best Picture award at this year's Oscars, attended the John Varvatos 10th Annual Stuart House Benefit in West Hollywood on March 10, where he revealed that he has been doing a lot of relaxing after his big win.
Affleck, 40, told Us Weekly, "Luckily, I've been able to just enjoy my good fortune the last couple of weeks, just sit back and take it in, not do anything, eat ice cream on the couch. It's been a nice time, hanging out with my wife, that sort of thing, and we're enjoying it."
Affleck brought his wife, Jennifer Garner, to the event as well, posing together on the red carpet.
Garner, 40, said of her hubby, "He looks pretty sharp today. He's wearing mostly John Varvatos today."
Affleck stated about the end of award season, "Now, when I go out and spend my time at events I can choose events like this that have some cause, some benefit other than trying to go after something for my movie. Nothing is wrong with that but it's also important to balance that with this type of activity that feels good."
Affleck certainly deserves some time to himself after the busy season, getting snubbed of the Best Director nomination and redeeming himself with the Best Picture award.
According to NOLA.com, Affleck stated in the press room post-show, "Honestly, you know how I feel about (not being nominated)? Naturally, I was disappointed. ... But when I look at the directors who were people who weren't nominated as well -- Paul Thomas Anderson and Kathryn Bigelow, just amazing, Tom Hooper and Quentin Tarantino -- these are all directors who I admire enormously. So, it was a very tough year."
He went on, "You know what? You're not entitled to anything. I'm honored to be here. I'm honored to be among these extraordinary movies -- and I'm really, really honored to win an Academy Award."
