  • Ben Affleck Defends Terribly Huge Back Tattoo

Ellen later pivoted to asking Affleck about his personal life, and mercifully homed in on his hilarious tattoo, which is big enough to cover his entire back and which takes the form of a luridly colorful phoenix.

"A phoenix rising from the ashes?".

Affleck earned a lot of attention for the tattoo last March when shirtless photos of him at a beach in Hawaii surfaced, snapped as he and costars Charlie Hunnam, Oscar Isaac and Garrett Hedlund trained for their new film Triple Frontier.

And this time it was Ellen's turn.

And DeGeneres made sure she got some jabs in during his rap with her executive producer Andy Lassner.

"Not so much positive", Affleck quickly pointed out.

"It's a phoenix", confirmed Affleck, to which an observant DeGeneres quipped was "rising from your ass". And I was about to say it represents something really important to me.

"You know what we would say in my hometown about that?" In exchange of Affleck spitting rhymes, DeGeneres said Shutterfly would donate US$20,000 to his organisation, the Eastern Congo Initiative.

"It's a phoenix", Affleck said.

It's something that I sort of kept private. It wasn't like I was doing photoshoots, or whatever. The actor told Extra host Mario Lopez that it was an airbrush tattoo he was rocking for an upcoming project.

Was there good reason to try to hide the tattoo from the public? "And yeah, the sentiment ran, you know, against".

He concluded: "I love my tattoo, I'm very happy with it, and luckily I'm the one who has it". Or do you think maybe it didn't turn out quite how he imagined a majestic phoenix engulfing his back, and now he's in denial about it?

During his appearance, Ben spoke candidly about being grateful for all he has gone through since it's helped him get to the "great place" he's in now.

Affleck also gave an update on his health following his stint in rehab in the fall for alcohol abuse.

For real, we're glad he's looking and sounding so healthy. "I love my tattoo".
