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.

Nice of him if it's true. Maybe he'll put up and give her a gig after she's proven herself by not drugging, stealing, endangering, tantrum throwing, etc. etc. for a while. Is Vegas taking on odds on when she'll relapse? Can they do that?

I GUESS BEN IS INTO CHARITY WORK. WHY DO PEOPLE BOTHER WITH HER. HER DNA ACTUALLY LOOKS LIKE STRUNG TOGETHER GARBAGE THANKS TO HER TRASHY PARENTS.

Good God, the Lohans must be really desperate for money, selling all these phoney stories to the tabloids over the last few days!

Let's see, how many fruitcakes fall for this story. You'll know how many fruitcakes are about by the amount of hate checks over there ===>

I'll believe it when someone quotes Ben Affleck, unitl then, DUIna give it the fcuk up already, and while you're at it go update your lil sluts IMDB and remove the "Live By Night" rumoured 2014 because it's embarrassing beyond words.

I think Ben Affleck's "comeback" is over-blown. Okay Gigli and the Beniffer experience was pretty garish but it hardly compares with the wholesale disgrace that druggies and drunks like Lindsey inflict on themselves and the world.
