Meanwhile, Ben Affleck recently starred in Netflix's Triple Frontier. In the action thriller movie, he shared the screen space with Oscar Issac, Charlie Hunnam, Garrett Hedlund, and Pedro Pascal. Affleck also appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show where he talked about his most controversial tattoo.

In March 2018, Ben Affleck was heavily criticized for a big size tattoo on his back. The Argo movie star was snapped as he and Triple Frontier movie co-stars were training for their respective roles. As per Affleck, the comments which he received for the tattoo were negative.

"It's not something that I sort of kept private, It wasn't like I was doing photo shoots or whatever, we were two hours north of the city on an island in Hawaii and we didn't know the paparazzi were there," Affleck told DeGeneres of the leaked tattoo snap. "So they got a picture of my tattoo. And sentiment ran ... you know, against."

Ben Affleck added that the Phoenix tattoo is very meaningful to him and he feels very "happy with it."
