It's one of my favorite pieces of celebrity trivia: Ben Affleck, a two-time Oscar victor, has a giant tattoo of a phoenix on his back.

On "The Ellen Show" on Thursday, the actor, 46, acknowledged that the reaction from the public was "not so much positive" and defended his enormous back piece. "And I was about to say it represents something really important to me, but you know what?"

"There's temptation to.... I could get depressed, I could feel like I've been through a lot; this was hard and that was hard, or I could be kind of embarrassed, but I have to say I feel so good now", Affleck told DeGeneres. "It's meaningful to me, I like it".

"It's a phoenix", Affleck said. "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. I'm very happy with it".

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

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. "I like it... The sentiment ran against, but I love it - luckily, I'm the one who has it".

Affleck also admitted that he's had to briefly betray his beloved Red Sox and don a Dodgers hat, but for a good reason: He's a coach for his son's little league team, a role Affleck called "the dad dream".
