    Matt Damon Was Asked About Ben Affleck's Back Tattoo And He Didn't Quite Know What To Say

    "It's not one man's job to tell another man what he can do to his back."

    By now, I hope you've had the life-changing experience of glimpsing Ben Affleck's back tattoo.


    If not, you can view it right here, or I can just tell you that it is very big, very colorful, and takes up the entirety of his back. Also, it is a phoenix.

    Anyway. Ben Affleck's eternal BFF, Matt Damon, was a guest on The Daily Show last night, and Trevor Noah had one topic at the front of his mind: THE TATTOO.

    "I don't believe a friend would allow a friend to get a back tattoo of a colorful dragon," Trevor joked. "Have you seen this tattoo?"

    "Of course, yeah, yeah, yeah..." Matt said, struggling to find ~the words~.

    "I mean, uh, it's not β€” it's not one man's job to tell another man what he can do to his back."

    "I... I β€” you know β€” I support him in all of his...artistic expression," he concluded. And he couldn't ~quite~ resist laughing a little.

    Two of Ben's exes, Jennifer Garner and Jennifer Lopez, have also been asked about the tattoo, and neither was particularly fond of it.


    JLo thought it had "too many colors." Garner put it simply: "Bless his heart."

    But hey. As long as it makes Ben happy, that's all that matters.
