Following his split with wife Jennifer Garner over the summer, Ben Affleck inked a giant phoenix on his back. A move not appreciated by his former lovers.
During an interview on “Watch What Happens Live” on Monday, Jennifer Lopez exclaimed, “It’s awful! What are you doing? His tattoos always have too many colors, they shouldn’t be so colorful. They should be cooler.”
In addition to the phoenix, Affleck has a dolphin on his hip, barbed wire across his right upper arm, a fish with skull and crossbones on his right arm and several initials on his shoulder blade.
During a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Affleck’s estranged wife also gave her opinion about his back art.
“You know what we would say in my hometown about that? ‘Bless his heart’,” Garner said.
She also feared that the phoenix was referring to their broken relationship, adding: “A phoenix rising from the ashes. Am I the ashes in this scenario? I take umbrage. I refuse to be the ashes.”
Garner and Affleck split in June 2015 after 10 years of marriage. The actor dated Lopez from 2002 and 2004, but they called off their wedding just days before their ceremony due to “excessive media attention.”
