Jennifer Garner opened up about her husband Ben Affleck’s blink-and-you-miss-it full frontal nude scene in Gone Girl while on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in an episode airing Wednesday. Garner talked about the success of the film, based on Gillian Flynn’s highly successful book, which became No. 1 at the box office this past weekend. "He's showing his penis," she said, Us Magazine reports. "I think you're probably onto something. What I have to say is, 'You're welcome.' 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.” She also joked her reaction to him telling her about the nude scene was, “I hope he had on a wide lens." Affleck himself joked about baring all for the film, saying “It’s IMAX penis! You’ve gotta pay fifteen bucks to see it in 3D… it’s better in 3D.” “This is a warts and all movie. It can have no vanity,” he also said. "You have to see the naked underbelly of this character. It's gotta be like in Europe, they just don't give a s--t about any of that stuff and they just play real people.”
