“Extra’s” Mario Lopez was catching up with Ben Affleck on the 2013 Oscars red carpet when their interview was hug bombed! The two were chatting and out of nowhere George Clooney interrupted for a squeeze. George, who produced Affleck’s Best Picture contender “Argo,” joked that their beards got velcroed together.
The filmmaker wasn’t the only Affleck competing for an award on Sunday. Just a few hours before the Academy Awards, Ben accompanied his daughter Violet to her spelling bee competition -- where she picked up the winning prize.
