Lindsay Lohan may have made her return to Hollywood after wrapping up her 90-day stint in rehab, but her new struggle is all about making her comeback. And according to reports, Ben Affleck may have struck the inspiration cord that Lindsay needed during her stay at Cliffside in Malibu.
According to TMZ, Ben made a surprise visit to Lindsay during her stay, taking her away from the facility to have a serious heart-to-heart with her about dealing with her struggles while taking her career back. Ben, who dealt with addiction and went to rehab in 2001, gave her advice on how to turn things around in her life once she completed her 90 days.

“Ben also told her how supportive the entertainment community is for people who make a real effort to get better and stay clean,” TMZ reports. “Our sources say the meeting really touched her.”
There have been previous reports that Ben confronted Lindsay about starring in his upcoming film Live By Night, but now we’re learning that there was never an offer made. Any communication these two had was strictly about helping her and overcoming her personal struggles.
As surprised as we are to hear about these two, it just shows how many in Hollywood are rooting for Lindsay this time around. She’s already gotten rave reviews for her guest hosting spot on Chelsea Lately and will have her first candid interview with Oprah this Sunday on Oprah’s Next Chapter, along with an eight-part docu-series following her return to the spot light.
