Gone Girl star Ben confirms 'the penis is in there' as his wife jokes the director needed 'a wide lens'

Buff Ben Affleck has confirmed the news we’d all been waiting for – his manhood DOES get a starring role in Gone Girl.

The internet has been going crazy over whether or not you get a glimpse of Ben’s equipment during a naked shower scene.

Twitter lit up after the US premiere with people using #Dickgate to discuss its fleeting appearance.

Now his wife Jennifer Garner has confirmed that there is a flash of his, erm, todger, and that Ben is a big boy saying she hoped director David Fincher had ‘a wide lens’ to film the scene.

Opening up about his full-frontal scene Jennifer told Ellen DeGeneres: ‘He’s showing his penis,’ after it was suggested the flash may be contributing to the film’s runaway success.

‘It wasn’t a discussion,’ she added when asked if they’d talked about it. ‘It was like: “Hey, at work today [David] Fincher talked me into coming out of the shower.”‘

‘What I have to say is, “You’re welcome,” ‘ Jennifer added – for letting him unleash his goodies on the world.

‘I just try to consider myself a charitable person and I wanted to give back. You give me so much, I wanted to give something back to all of you.’

In case anyone is still in any doubt about the sighting Ben himself confirmed it to MTV news: ‘There’s some brief – very brief – nudity,’ he said. ‘The penis is in there.’

Although blogs containing step-by-step instructions on how to see Ben’s pee pee have popped up, we can tell you from experience that you need to keep your eyes well peeled right at the end, during the shower scene. Make sure you don’t miss it like we did.

As Ben says, it is very brief. Although there are definitely no briefs in sight thankfully.

The film has had the biggest opening weekend since The Inbetweeners 2 in August taking over £4million. No doubt all this talk of Ben’s bits is only adding to the interest. Now, where are the cinema listings for this weekend…
