Lindsay Lohan
got a surprise visit while she was ensconced in rehab -- we found out Ben Affleck had a secret meeting with her as a show of support.

Affleck -- who himself was in rehab back in 2001 -- met Lindsay somewhere away from the Cliffside rehab facility in Malibu where Lindsay was getting treatment.  We're told Ben gave her guidance on how to maintain sobriety after rehab for someone in Hollywood.

We're told Ben talked to Lindsay about how to make a comeback in Hollywood -- a subject on which he's an expert.  Ben talked to Lindsay about her career -- on how talented she is and how she has the ability to turn things around.

Ben also told her how supportive the entertainment community is for people who make a real effort to get better and stay clean.  Our sources say the meeting really touched her.

The meeting was not about Lindsay appearing in Ben's new movie, "Live By Night."  Lindsay will not be in the flick.

This is nice to hear. I hope/wish he'd go and see Amanda Bynes as well as she is very, very ill and could use any support she can get.

I hope Lindsay is strong enough to do it.

This is just sad that her parents are that desperate that they would have to sell these stories. Their daughter doesn't stand a chance. Sorry but they are going to drag her down forever and her chances for a comeback are expired.

I don't understand how she gets to leave the building for these meetings? Was she getting special treatment because they are so called celebrities? The rehab was court ordered not her entering on her own. The industry must have stardust in their eyes because if "' LIz and Dick" and "The Canyons" are highlighting her talent, I can see why Ben Affleck didn't put her in his movie. She just isn't a good actress anymore.

How 'bout that, "Judge" Missingjay...... Linds still does what she wants, even if it means disregarding your direct orders. We all know that you're WAY too much of a weenie to back your judicial orders up.
