'Gone Girl' cast spills on Ben Affleck's brief nudity

One of the most talked-about moments in Gone Girl is a brief moment of nudity where, if you look closely enough, you can spot Ben Affleck’s penis. When moviegoers realized this, the Internet exploded—and the split-second shot is still being discussed a month later, even at the Hollywood Film Awards yesterday where the film won the Hollywood Film Award and Gillian Flynn took home the Hollywood Screenwriter Award. Here’s what the cast, including the man himself, and crew had to say about the now-infamous look at Affleck’s nether regions:

• Patrick Fugit, who plays Officer Jim Gilpin in the film, said the moment wasn’t discussed on set: “No. There was no talk. There was more talk about Emily’s scene where she had to take her top off. I heard more about that than Ben’s at the time. It was sort of a surprise. I saw the shower scene when the movie came out and I was like, ‘Oh wait. You almost saw his, well, I didn’t know they were doing that.'”

Flynn, author and screenwriter, joked about the true definition of full-frontal nudity, and Affleck’s commitment to his craft: “It is so quick. Maybe you see it, maybe you don’t. I laughed because there were all these things being said about his full frontal and I was like, ‘That is not the definition of full frontal, my friends.’ That was a man getting into a shower. I expect to see a lot more when people call it full frontal. I was like, ‘I wrote this book and this film and I saw the dailies and I don’t remember a full frontal.’ Maybe they went off script there. But I appreciate [Ben’s] commitment to the authenticity of a man getting into a shower. Man, you committed.”

• Emily Ratajkowski told the Los Angeles Times her thoughts on whether the moment had been discussed too much: “I think it got as much discussion as it deserved, right?”

• Ben Affleck, the man of the hour, addressed the controversy when he accepted the show’s top prize: “I want to take this opportunity to thank David for the way he treated me. In particular, we had a shower scene in the movie. And David assured me, because trust is essential with directors and actors: ‘Listen, if we tilt down we will never go far enough to see anything.’ So thank you David. And I’d like to thank you for keeping the set cool. Because if you are gonna have one chance for America to see your junk you want it to be cold. It’s a real gift.”

Ben Affleck on what to expect from David Fincher's 'Gone Girl' -- EXCLUSIVE

As a director, Ben Affleck is three-for-three, a perfect batting average that includes Gone Baby Gone, The Town, and a Best Picture Oscar for his last film, Argo. But he’s not above picking up pointers from his own directors. To that end, Affleck is in the midst of what might be considered a Ph.D. filmmaking class on the set of Gone Girl, David Fincher’s adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s best-selling novel about a woman who goes missing on her fifth wedding anniversary. “I truly kind of show up with a notepad,” says Affleck, who plays Nick Dunne, the husband who is suspected of his wife’s murder. “He’s the only director I’ve worked with who I felt like could do everyone else’s job as well, if not better, than they could; who is able to articulate exactly what he was thinking; and who understands the technical side of the work as much as the creative side, which is to say, a lot. I’ve learned more from David in a day or two than I have most movies I’ve spent 80 days on.” READ FULL STORY
