While accepting the Best Film award for Gone Girl at the 2014 Hollywood Film Awards on Nov. 14, Ben Affleck, 42, took the opportunity to talk candidly about his “junk.” Meanwhile, his ex-fiancee, Jennifer Lopez, was in the audience when he talked about his full-frontal nude scene, according to Us Weekly.

“There are a lot of people to thank, but first I want to take this opportunity to thank David Fincher for the way he treated me,” Ben said of the film’s director. “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’ll never go far enough to see anything. So, thank you David,” he joked about showing off his goods.
“I’d like to thank you for keeping the set cool because if you’re going to have one chance for America to see your junk, you want it to be cold. It’s a gift,” he added.
Luckily, it wasn’t too weird — Ben and Jen have been on good terms since splitting in 2004.

J.Lo, 45, even supported her ex, by catching Gone Girl in theaters on Oct. 12 — she tweeted a photo from her seat.
During a Today show interview on Nov. 3, Jennifer told Maria Shriver, “It was probably my first big heartbreak,” when asked about her relationship with Ben.
Jennifer clearly cared — and still does care — about Ben. It’s nice to know they can remain amicable with each other, even if things are a bit awkward at times.
