Ben Affleck is sporting a new look.

The Batman star, 48, has ditched his usual dark beard in favour of a clean-shaven face in a new Instagram video featuring famous bestie Matt Damon.

It’s quite the departure from the facial hair he’s been rocking in recent months when spotted out and about in Los Angeles with girlfriend Ana de Armas.

The actor, who has lost a dramatic amount of weight over the past year or so, wore a simple grey T-shirt in the hilarious charity video alongside Damon, 50, who wore a black T-shirt.

During the clip, the two are seen trading jabs over the actors who have taken over their past roles – Damon teasing Affleck about Robert Pattinson scoring the new Batman part, and Affleck responding with mock comparison between Damon and Jeremy Renner, who has starred in the most recent Bourne film.

“We’d like to invite you to come to L.A. and have lunch with us and hang out,” Affleck began.

As Damon began speaking next, he cut off the Jason Bourne star, saying: “Hold on. Hold on. Hold on. Cut. Cut. Cut.”

“You have to spice it up, you gotta be appealing,” Affleck told Damon.

Interjecting again, Affleck said, “Don’t act weird. Tell them something they’re interested in like, ‘Hey come see Jason Bourne and Batman…’”, before Damon chimed in cheekily: “Robert Pattinson’s coming?”

“No, Jeremy Renner will be there though,” Affleck replied.

In an effort to “provide resources and support to communities in need” as Affleck’s caption reads, those who enter into the Omaze competition will earn a chance to enjoy lunch with both stars in Los Angeles “once it’s safe to travel”.

Proceeds will go toward the Eastern Congo Initiative, co-founded by Affleck, and Water, an organisation intended to provide sanitary drinking water for all.

Affleck is set to appear sans-beard in the long-awaited Zack Snyder director’s cut of Justice League, which he is reportedly filming reshoots for.

It is set to drop on HBO in four one-hour instalments next year.
