Ben Affleck Addresses Jennifer Garner’s Vanity Fair Interview, Yet Still Won’t Give Us an Explanation For His Back Tattoo

Vanity Fair Oscar Party - Arrivals

Last month, Jennifer Garner talked to Vanity Fair and gave us some insight into her split from Ben Affleck. For the most part, Jennifer took the high road, well as much as one can when they're dishing about a broken marriage to a national magazine. She didn't go into much detail about Ben's alleged affair with their nanny and called Ben the “the love of [her] life” saying he was “brilliant” but “a complicated guy.”

Thanks to his new interview with the New York Times, we now get Ben's take on the article which can be summed up with “whatever, man.” He says, “She felt like she wanted to discuss it and get it out there and get it over with so she could say, ‘Look, I already talked about it — I don’t want to do it again.'” He added, “It's fine. She’s allowed to talk about it.” The two are still on “great terms”, according to Ben, who added “I just saw her this morning, so that’s the reality that I live in.”

Sadly, we didn't get Ben's response to one of the shadier aspects of Jennifer's interview, the part where she discussed his infamous back tattoo. In the Vanity Fair piece, Jennifer gave her thoughts on the tattoo by saying, “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.” While Ben probably couldn't top that quote, anyway, I'd think we all love to see him try.
