But his tattoo rumors sparked when his few pictures leaked in 2015, and the world eagerly awaited Jennifer Garner’s reaction to his back tattoo when the duo was married but had already announced their divorce. In 2016, Garner sat with Vanity Fair for an interview where she discussed her thoughts on her ex’s new artwork. Despite photos showing her estranged husband’s entire back covered in a tattoo, she refused to take responsibility for it and said,

“You know what we would say in my hometown about that? ‘Bless his heart.’ A phoenix rising from the ashes. Am I the ashes in this scenario? I take umbrage. I refuse to be the ashes.”

She also discussed her efforts toward her marriage with Affleck and said,

“I definitely put a lot of time towards my marriage that I will now have for myself. I don’t know how I will use that.”

Similarly, in 2019, the show host Andy Cohen asked Jennifer Lopez about her then-ex’s infamous back tattoo on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen. She first giggled and then said,

“It’s awful! What are you doing? It has too many colors. His tattoos always have too many colors. They shouldn’t be so colorful. They should be, like, cooler.”

However, in 2022, despite Ben Affleck’s weird choices, JLo and Affleck rekindled their 20-year love and married.

Also, Lopez was rumored to be encouraging Affleck to undergo plastic surgery to improve his appearance.
