He Laughs! Ben Affleck Pokes Fun At His Garish Back Tattoo

He Laughs! Ben Affleck pokes fun at his garish back tattoo

 

“The Great Sadness of Ben Affleck,” which delved into his split from Jennifer Garner and his recent appearance on a Hawaii beach with his now-infamous phoenix tattoo in full view.

“The tattoo — so gargantuan that the bird’s tail found itself dipping below the waistband of Affleck’s blue swim trunks — was plainly visible,” Naomi Fry wrote. “In one image, the actor stands alone, looking off into the middle distance. His gut is pooching outward in a way that, in a more enlightened country like, say, France, would perhaps be considered virile, not unlike the lusty Gérard Depardieu in his prime but, in fitness-fascist America, tends to read as Homer Simpsonesque.”

Ouch.

Thankfully, the Oscar winner didn’t take the insult to heart.

“@NewYorker I’m doing just fine,” Affleck, 45, tweeted Thursday. “Thick skin bolstered by garish tattoos.”

Affleck has previously said that the “garish” ink — a colorful bird rising from the ashes that covers the 6-foot-4 actor’s entire back — was fake and for a movie role.

“I actually do have a number of tattoos,” Affleck fibbed in 2016. “But I try to have them in places where you don’t have to do a lot of cover-up … they get sort of addictive, tattoos, after a while.”
