(Newser) – Jennifer Garner really opened up during her recent interview with Vanity Fair, tackling such subjects as her feelings about estranged husband Ben Affleck and even his affair with their kids' nanny. But perhaps her best response comes to a question about what VF calls Affleck's "midlife-crisis tattoo," a huge phoenix rising on his back. "You know what we would say in my hometown about that? 'Bless his heart,'" Garner says. "A phoenix rising from the ashes. Am I the ashes in this scenario?" She winks: "I take umbrage. I refuse to be the ashes."
