Not only is Ben Affleck's huge back tattoo real - it's also very meaningful.

Ellen DeGeneres brought up the tattoo while Affleck was on her show Thursday.

Affleck's tattoo was fully revealed a year ago while he was shooting scenes for his new Netflix film, Triple Frontier, which also stars Charlie Hunnam, Oscar Isaac, Garrett Hedlund and Pedro Pascal.

"Yes, it's a phoenix, rising from my a.", Affleck concurred.

"Yes, it's a phoenix rising out of my a**". "I was about to say it represents something really important to me, but we'll skip that", he said with a laugh.

In any case, the trailer doesn't really give away much when it comes to how the Avengers actually plan to deal with the destruction Thanos wrought.

Affleck's long-time friend Matt Damon was among the few supporters: "I mean, it's not one man's job to tell another man what he can do to his back".

"I had a game last week and I was promoting the movie, and I was going to Asia, and I was like, 'I have to come back a day early, '" Affleck said, adding that Netflix let him leave the press tour early to coach the game. "I'm happy with it". "Luckily, I'm the one who has it". "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 a while". "I like it", the star said of his tattoo. "It wasn't like I was sort of doing photo shoots or whatever", he continued. "And yeah, the sentiment ran, you know, against, which I think- I love my tattoo".

"[It's] fake for a movie", he told Extrain March 2016. My kids are healthy.

OK, in that instance we're pretty sure he's alluding to his rehab for alcohol abuse and not the tattoo. And if he loves his giant tattoo, he should be proud.

During his appearance, Ben spoke candidly about being grateful for all he has gone through since it's helped him get to the "great place" he's in now.
