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.

You all are just jealous, and haters!! Linds is FABULOUS. One of the best actors of our time!
Did you know she was in a movie called Mean Girls? I'll bet ya didn't know that! It was only one of the greatest movies of all time! Gone With The Wind, Psycho, Titanic, Shawshank Redemption? Hah!! They don't even compare to Mean Girls!! And she's got lots more coming up!! You guys need to talk to a user named Chief Gall. He really knows what he's talking about. He said she's going to win an Oscar, and she might just win about 10-12 of them.

She so FAB!!

Until Affleck says this is true, I'm NOT buying it. This is a married man with three kids and BUSY career, WHY would he take the time to seek out a perfect stranger and 'coach' her on 'sobriety in Hollywood'? He wouldn't. PERIOD!

Ben Affleck does several talks a year at various rehab facilities throughout CA and Boston.

His PR team confirmed that he was speaking at Cliffside on Sunday June 30th to a group of approximately 20 residents. His PR team believes that Lindsay, who was in attendance, may have been in the throes of one of her psychotic episodes and believed Ben was there to talk about a role in his new movie.

Ben and his PR team wish Lindsay a speedy recovery.

Oh and let me add the BS she's running in a marathon and she's going to the gym and spinning classes. Off the Adderall.


This idiot smokes 4 pack of cigs has never worked out a day in her life. There's no way she could do any kind of workout. PLUS if she cared she would started working out while in rehab where the have a full staff to help her maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Lying Lindsay finds it much easier to pop Adderall like they are M&M's instead. She's with Ali who is bone thin, do you really think Lindsay will let Ali out shine her in the thin dept.

So when they are getting dressed and Ali can wear low cut or sexy clothes, the beefer isn't going to flip out cause everything makes her look fat and the rolls are hard to cover. Think about it. Coke is a quick weight loss too. No way on Gods green earth is this b!tch gonna stay off the pills and drugs.

Well I guess if they make a remake of the "BLOB" she would be a shoo in for the lead role.
