Ben Affleck jokes about his 'garish tattoos'

  • Ben Affleck hilariously responds to New Yorker article suggesting his back tattoo is a cry for help

The A-lister does not seem to like talking about personal topics, unless he's being forced to while doing promotion for a movie. "It symbolises how he has risen from the ashes, reborn as a guy with a tattoo that sucks".

Naturally, the mockery was merciless.

OK, fine, case closed.

The 45-year-old flaunted the tattoo when he was in a training session for his upcoming movie "Triple Frontier" in Hawaii.

But that was pretty composed compared to what his former fiancée Jennifer Lopez said when she was asked about it on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen.

His use of the word "garish" was quoted directly from the piece that described his back tattoo as both "garish" and 'gargantuan'.


She also made mention of the fact that Ben formerly lied about the tattoo being fake in an interview with Extra's Mario Lopez.

The star reportedly got the tattoo, which symbolises rebirth, after then-wife Jennifer Garner filed for divorce after 10 years of marriage.

Recently, Affleck's close friend Matt Damon protected him in an interview with The Daily Show with Trevor Noah.

'It's not one man's job to tell another man what he can do to his back, ' he said with a laugh. "I support him in all of his artistic expression", Matt said.

Affleck also responded when the Sad Affleck memes went viral. In the new set of photos, one showed him gazing pensively into the ocean with a towel around him, while his younger co-stars frolicked in the sand. "There is something about this exhausted father that reflexively induces panic", Fry concluded.

The article said that ever since Affleck's 2015 split from actress Jennifer Garner, paparazzi photographs have shown a "sad Ben", from him vaping in his auto to the low-energy interviews he gave during the press tour. We can't find any really relevant "rainbow phoenix" references, so I guess that Affleck just really had the money to splurge on multiple ink colors, or he really liked Archeops, which is definitely a Pokemon that Affleck would know about and love. "Thick skin bolstered by garish tattoos", Affleck wrote, making light of his highly buzzed-about look.
