Ben Affleck gas station jeans beard

Looking just the right amount of rugged, Ben Affleck stopped by a gas station in LA on Thursday afternoon to fill up his giant Lexus sedan -- that's gonna be a big gas bill! -- while showing off his new beard.

The Oscar winner has quite a busy week, throwing a star-studded fundraiser for former Obama aide Elizabeth Warren's senatorial campaign with BFF Matt Damon, which raised more than $250K for the candidate.

Warren, a former Obama administration aide, is fighting to reclaim Ted Kennedy's Massachusetts Senate seat for the Democrats, according to THR, and attendees who showed up to support included Jennifer Garner, Reese Witherspoon, Tobey Maguire, Steven Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg, and Harvey Weinstein.

Ben loves politics so much, maybe he'll consider running for office someday!
