Lindsay Lohan is looking better than ever these days, and with a new reality show in the works, it looks as though her career is in store for a full revival — and it may all be thanks to a highly unlikely source.
TMZ reports that Ben Affleck met up with Lindsay while she was getting treatment at Cliffside rehab in Malibu (although not at the rehab center itself) and gave her some advice on how to keep her nose clean once she was back in the game.
The 40-year-old Oscar winner, who sought treatment for alcohol addiction at Malibu's Promises rehab in 2001, allegedly took some time to give Lindsay, 27, some career counseling as well, presumably telling her to steer clear of projects co-starring porn stars shot entirely on iPhones, or whatever sage advice the guy who made Argo could muster for the star of Herbie: Fully Loaded.
Ben, who does seem like the model of fatherly compassion, reportedly made a point to remind Lindsay how talented she is and how much support there is for recovering addicts in Hollywood, when she's willing to accept it.
The one thing he didn't give her: a job. Come on — the guy's nice, not insane.
