Ben Affleck

I Told Lindsay

How To Stay Sober

8/12/2013 5:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

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.

Sober or npt , Lindsay is NOT a good actress. She's too old to play teenage girl roles, which is probably the only ones she could be somewhat believable at. She doesn't have the talent and ability to transform herself into her characters. I always feel as though im just watching her as herself in every film shes done as of late. Maybe she'd do better just doing comedies where she pokes fun of herself or something. If there's anything we learned from that Liz Taylor and Machete movie is that she isn't talented whatsoever. Her ship has sailed. She's no Ben Affleck. .. a "comeback" sounds silly for someone whose only acceptable work was a Parent Trap remake and Mean Girls @@ wish her all the best with sobriety though but Hollywood should ignore any further attempts at serious acting on her part.

TMZ, why do you keep doing this to yourselves? Why do you keep backing yourselves into a corner?
How many more of these "Lindsay is sober!" stories are you going to publish? Everyone except a few lunatic gullible fans know she's not sober. She never has been, no matter how many times she screams it, each time she comes out of rehab. Anyone who is that hell-bent on announcing they're sober is usually not sober.

And then again, in a week or two, she'll get into more trouble, probably at a nightclub, while drinking, and again, you'll have egg on your faces.

Don't you get tired of being embarrassed by this useless waste of oxygen?

who does ben want to sleep with today.. little homely jennifer garner.. his rebound wife after the sudden jennifer lopez engagement was off.. sure ben needed another jennifer but a lil homely motherly type like garner.

im sure the kids are growing up and ben got the 12 year itch buy now

im sure ben rrather sleep with skank lindsay and he prob feels in his mond he has some connection to lindsay or he can relate to her as an addict .. more so than sleep with lil rebound wife , homely lil garner today

sounds like a 40 yr old male mid life crisis fake i care about you move on bens part.

he really should mind his own business, wife and three kids than make touching moves on women 12 years younger than him in rehab.

So, TMZ, which is it: 1) He came late at night to talk to her or 2) They met outside the facility? I thought one of the conditions was that she was NOT allowed to leave the facility. Now I know why she wanted to switch out of Betty Ford.

Milo needs to stop with all these BS stories. The only story that has been true is that she got escorted out of a hotel at 7am while partying with the Wanted. The rest are pure BS coming from both parents.

Either way, I win.
