Ben Affleck was On the Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday where he discussed his tattoo
"It's a phoenix"
"Rising from your ass," Ellen DeGeneres added.
"Yes, it's a phoenix rising from my ass," Affleck said. "And I was about to say it represents something really important to me, but you know what? Maybe just, we'll skip that. It's meaningful to me. I like it."
"So [the paparazzi] got a picture of my tattoo," he said. "And yeah, the sentiment ran, you know, against, which I think- I love my tattoo. I'm very happy with it."
Jennifer Garner weighed in on his back tattoo in 2016, when she told Vanity Fair:
"You know what we would say in my hometown about that? 'Bless his heart.'" "A phoenix rising from the ashes. Am I the ashes in this scenario? I take umbrage. I refuse to be the ashes."
