Ben Affleck's Exes Hate His Big, Gross Tattoo & So Do We

It seems that I have more in common with Jennifer Garner and Jennifer Lopez than just sharing a moniker. We all hate Ben Affleck's giant back tattoo of a phoenix rising out of the ashes. Both of Ben's exes recently spoke out on the atrocity, and neither of them is a fan.


The Justice League actor apparently got the ink last July, right around the time his 10-year marriage with Garner was crumbling, and all of those rumors about him having an affair with the nanny started flying. Obviously mid-life crisis time, right? 

I can't think of any other way to explain this.

Affleck's former fiancé Jennifer Lopez recently stopped by Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, and the host asked her what she really felt about the ink. Skip to the 1:15 mark to hear her gut reaction!

"It's awful! I mean, I would tell him that," she said. "I would tell him, like, what are you doing? It has too many colors. His tattoos always had too many colors. They shouldn't be so colorful. You know what I mean? They should be like, cooler."

Ex-wife Jennifer Garner also weighed in on the body art in a recent interview with Vanity Fair. The mom of three said, "You know what we would say in my hometown about that? 'Bless his heart.'" She continued, "A phoenix rising from the ashes ... Am I the ashes in this scenario? I take umbrage. I refuse to be the ashes."

All we know is that somewhere, Professor Dumbledore's beloved pet phoenix Fawkes is crying.
