Ben Affleck jokes about his 'garish' back tattoo of a phoenix

Ben Affleck

In an apparent response to the article, Affleck wrote to the New Yorker's official Twitter handle: "I'm doing just fine".

Ben Affleck finally referenced his totally insane phoenix tattoo on Thursday, calling out the New Yorker in the process.

'It's not one man's job to tell another man what he can do to his back, ' he said with a laugh.

The tattoo is supposed to be a phoenix, but one Pokemon fan pointed out that it bares a strong resemblence to Archeops, a Fossil Pokemon that resembles a mix between an Archaeopteryx (an ancient bird-like dinosaur) and a Mesoamerican feathered serpent.

'Fake for a movie, ' he said rather flustered in the 2016 chat. The tattoo is several years old, but Affleck's friends and representatives have denied its existence for years, probably because it looks so horrifically terrible.


Affleck also has been reported to have returned to rehab for alcohol addiction while facing some career setbacks and the public's general sense that his brand of male movie star may have become passe.

Affleck's ex-wife Jennifer Garner famously had less than kind words to say about it when she was asked her opinion by Vanity Fair back in 2016.

Ben and Jennifer are still friendly as they work to co-parent their three kids-Violet, 12, Seraphina, 9, and Samuel, five. Matt Damon defended his longtime friend during an interview on "The Daily Show with Trevor Noah", albeit with a few suppressed laughs. "Am I the ashes in this scenario?"

Another posted: "Don't mock Ben Affleck's phoenix tattoo". "I take umbrage. I refuse to be the ashes". There is something about this exhausted father that reflexively induces panic. It's unclear if that's the case with Ben Affleck, but it seems logical, especially considering all of the weight fluctuations he's expected to go through for any given part. "We've been living in a world run by Afflecks for so long, will we even know ourselves when they're gone?"
