Which is quite a contrast to the last time we saw her soon-to-be-ex-husband Ben Affleck.
The last time we saw Ben here he was sporting a GIGANTIC back tattoo of a phoenix rising from his ass to his shoulder blades.
Between the tat and his purchasing a new muscle car it appeared that Affleck was in full mid-life crisis mode.
The only thing we didn’t know after all that was what his estranged wife Jennifer Garner was thinking of these new developments in Ben’s life.
And now we do.
Thanks to an interview with Vanity Fair just prior to the Oscars, Garner dropped this little bit of Southern shade on her ex…
One thing is for sure: she refuses to claim responsibility for the midlife-crisis tattoo — the rising phoenix — that takes up her estranged husband’s entire back, as seen in photographs. “You know what we would say in my hometown about that? ‘Bless his heart.’ A phoenix rising from the ashes. Am I the ashes in this scenario?” Garner says with a wink. “I take umbrage. I refuse to be the ashes.”
“Bless his heart…” I am pretty sure that’s code, for “what an idiot” in the south.
As for all the rumors of his hooking up with the nanny being the reason for the couple breaking up, Garner says that isn’t exactly how it went down…
Let me just tell you something. We had been separated for months before I ever heard about the nanny. She had nothing to do with our decision to divorce. She was not a part of the equation. Bad judgment? Yes. It’s not great for your kids for [a nanny] to disappear from their lives.
I love how she comes off more worried about the nanny disappearing from her kids’ lives than Ben. No bitterness here at all, folks. No, sir.
