One of the most talked-about scenes from the movie "Gone Girl" is the infamous "shower scene" where Affleck puts his manhood on full display for the camera.

Ahead of the movie's premiere, Affleck had teased "some brief nudity" in the film, saying,  “David said to me from the beginning, ‘This is a warts-and-all movie. It can have no vanity. 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.'"

The "Good Will Hunting" star has faced some serious physical challenges to stay fit for his roles, including gaining an extra 24 lbs of solid muscle in only four months for his "Batman" role.

In addition to performing some serious heavy lifting exercises, Affleck also made sure to clean up his diet. 

Although he carefully watched the sodium he consumed, he ate about six meals a day, with a macronutrient breakdown of roughly 45% carbs, 35% protein, and 20% fat. 

That means consuming a lot of healthy proteins, like egg whites for breakfast and salmon for dinner, along with a lot of healthy leafy green vegetables.
