Just One More Reason To Go See Gone Girl

The reviews are in... and it looks like Gone Girl is set to be one of the biggest box office hits of the year. 

Book fans have spent months and months waiting for David Fincher's adaptation of Gillian Flynn's bestselling novel to land in cinemas, so it was bound to attract a huge audience anyway, but we do suspect that the latest revelation about the film will attract a few more fans.

Ben Affleck takes on a leading role in the film, playing Nick Dunne, whose wife Amy is the "Gone Girl" of the title.

One of the best-kept secrets of the filming process has now been revealed to the public, and Affleck's many fans may get a kick out of it.

In news dubbed "penis-gate", it has emerged that Ben goes full frontal in the film.

Speaking to MTV, Ben said: “It’s ironic, because David said to me from the beginning, this is a warts and all movie. It can have no vanity. You have to see the naked underbelly of this character.”

“It’s gotta be like in Europe, they just don’t give a shit about any of that stuff, and they just play real people, you know? And so that was the spirit of the thing.”

Ben bares all in the movie adaptation of Gone Girl

While we are a bit cooler about nudity than our American audience friends, it is refreshing to see one of Hollywood's main leading men happy to bare all for camera, instead of just the women. The move puts Affleck among the ranks of other carefree and clothes-free big screen actors like Michael Fassbender, Kevin Bacon, Jason Segel and Ewan McGregor.

Affleck has enjoyed something of a career renaissance over the past few years, and the future looks bright too as he'll soon take on one of the most iconic roles of all time, caped crusader Batman.

Gone Girl is in cinemas from today, October 2nd.
