The Wig Rumor of The 2000s:

The actor then rejected it, but shreds of evidence show the opposite of it. When the actor was about 30, he attended a Hollywood party where he played tussled with Vince Vaughan, the star of Swingers.

Both the actors were in the middle of a friendly wrestling when Affleck’s toupee flew off in front of people that were his close friends. He demanded from his friends to keep the incident a secret, but someone apparently didn’t get the message and leaked it out.

Not only did the star wear a toupee, but he also had a $50,000 dental work done to have attractive teeth.

Back in 2008, when Affleck was shooting for a film, the following picture went viral and created rumors amongst people.

This picture of Ben Affleck definitely shows that he was suffering from androgenic alopecia. This seems perfectly normal for a 40 year old man to have a small bald patch and experience hair thinning around his crown area.
