Ben Affleck responds to body-shaming article: I'm doing just fine

Ben Affleck'Justice League' film premiere Arrivals Los Angeles USA- 13 Nov 2017

The piece started with, of course, the writer noting Affleck's gigantic phoenix tattoo on his back, which had been the talk of the town since he was recently seen on Honolulu beach during the production of his upcoming project with Netflix, Triple Frontier.

Titled "The Great Sadness of Ben Affleck", the story is about Ben's massive phoenix tattoo which recently was revealed to be real, despite the actor claiming it was "fake for a movie" back in 2016. "Thick skin bolstered by garish tattoos", he wrote on Twitter.

Affleck was joined by Charlie Hunnam, Garrett Hedlund and Oscar Isaac.

Ben Affleck, pictured at a "Justice League" photocall in London on November 4, 2017, responded to his critics in a tweet Thursday. The pair share children Violet, 12, Seraphina, nine, and Samuel, six.

A source previously told PEOPLE that Affleck got the tattoo after splitting from Jennifer Garner in 2015, and a source later said that the ink took "hours and hours" to complete.

This is published unedited from the PTI feed.

Ben's best buddy Matt Damon also defended him in his recent interview with Trevor Noah on "The Daily Show". 'Bless his heart.' A phoenix rising from the ashes. Garner shared her thoughts about the ink with Vanity Fair, and even Affleck's close pal, Matt Damon, weighed in.

Ben Affleck wants everyone to know he's "doing just fine".

"Am I the ashes in this scenario?" she mused. "I take umbrage. I refuse to be the ashes". As for whether Affleck is happy in his personal life, we'll let his response stand for itself.

"You know what we would say in my hometown about that?" When BBC1 asked him what the film had taught him about being an actor and director, he quipped, "It taught me not to do interviews with Henry Cavill where I don't say anything and they can lay Simon & Garfunkel tracks over it; that's one thing I learned".
