“Yes, it’s a phoenix rising from my ass, 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.”
– Ben Affleck on the Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday where he discussed his tattoo.
Jennifer Garner also 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.”
