Ben Affleck Says His Back Tattoo Is Fake, Probably Isn’t

“You said we were Phoenix Bros. You sonofabitch.

After watching it get shit on by both Jennifer Garner and Jennifer Lopez within days of each other, Ben Affleck is now trying to say his back tattoo is fake while promoting Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Extra reports:

Affleck confirmed the massive Phoenix taking flight tat was “fake for a movie,” adding, “I actually do have a number of tattoos… 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 awhile.”

Except Lainey Gossip and Jezebel point out that this is almost definitely bullshit because it doesn’t line up with the filming of Live By Night or answers Ben’s given in past interviews. Not to mention, Jennifer Garner, the awesome, wonderful, “superhero mom” that Ben Affleck says he’s always with probably would’ve asked, “Hey, is that shit real?” before hauling his ass out in Vanity Fair. Even worse, he made poor Henry Cavill sit there while he lied about it, so now how he’s supposed to look his 19-year-old girlfriend in the eye like a man?

“Oy, that you, Superman?”
“Yeah, love.”
“What’s this all about you lettin’ Ben Affleck lie about his tattoo?”
“It’s nothin’, mum.”
“No shags for you then, is it?”
“I suppose not, mum.”
“Alright then, droive me to the mall. I’m still a bloody teenager.”
“Right away, mum.”
