HOLLYWOOD – Casey Affleck’s beard has filed a petition of divorce.
Manchester by the Sea star and Oscar winner Casey Affleck and his beard are to separate after only a year together. The Beard told the Studio Exec EXCLUSIVELY:
I love Casey very much. And I wish him every success in the future. But I cannot be a part of the hypocrisy anymore. Casey needs to grow up a little and change his way of treating both people and facial hair. I’m mostly concerned with facial hair, but that’s my bad.
The relationship has always been a tumultuous one. Casey first met Beard when working on the documentary with Joaquin Phoenix.
Joaquin and I were very attached but when we premiered the film at the Venice Film Festival suddenly he wanted to appear everywhere clean-shaven. I was very hurt. I was cut up. Literally. And Casey, who was going through drama of his own, was a shoulder to cry on and a chin to hang from. I’ll always be grateful for that. But at the same time I won’t miss the crumbs.
