Ben Affleck has had a year.
After his 10-year marriage to Jennifer Garner ended in June, the 43-year-old Oscar winner seems to be making big changes in his life. Case in point? An absolutely gigantic back tattoo that the actor exposed on the set of his new film on Tuesday!
A source tells ET that Affleck got a tattoo inside his wing of Jennifer Garner's home in Los Angeles. Affleck still stays in the home, which has been divided into separate areas for the former couple since their split. The tattoo seen this week appears to be a very large phoenix, a folkloric creature associated with rebirth.
Affleck is on set in Los Angeles, shooting his upcoming movie, Live by Night, and was seen in full makeup, appearing beaten and bruised between takes of the film. It's unclear whether the tattoo might be for his role in the film, a Prohibition-era gangster tale that Affleck is starring in, directing, and adapting the screenplay from Dennis Lehane's novel. Warner Bros. declined to comment on if the tattoo was real or for his character.
We first caught a glimpse of what appeared to be an epic fire bird on the actor in July, assuming at the time that it only encompassed just the lower back. However, the father of three is no stranger to ink and, in fact, has many tattoos. In 2000, he even spoke regretfully about some of the permanent choices he's made for his body.
"I was young. It was fun and cool," he said back then. "I'm sorry now, but it is a good lesson in decisions that have important and long repercussions."
