Like Jennifer Garner, Jennifer Lopez has strong feelings about Ben Affleck’s huge back tattoo.

The Gone Girl actor had a picture of a phoenix rising from the ashes inked on his back following his separation from Garner after ten years of marriage.

The “mid-life crisis” phoenix, as Vanity Fair summarised it, became a focal point of Garner’s recent interview when the actress questioned whether it symbolised their split.

“You know what we would say in my hometown about that?” asked Garner. “‘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.”

Lopez, Affleck’s former fiance, was asked for her honest opinion of it while playing Plead the Fifth on Watch What Happens Live by Andy Cohen. She didn’t hold back.

“It’s awful! I mean, I would tell him that...like...what are you doing? It has too many colours. His tattoos always had too many colours. They shouldn’t be so colourful, you know what I mean? They should be, like, cooler. I don’t know.”
