Ben Affleck apparently “checked up” on Lindsay Lohan in rehab.
The troubled actress was court ordered to 90 days of treatment stemming from charges of reckless driving and lying to police investigating her June 2012 car crash in Santa Monica, California.
Having left the Cliffside Malibu facility at the end of last month, it’s now being reported the 27-year-old had a famous visitor during her time there.
“A former substance abuser himself, Lindsay said he was there to check on her and see how she was doing,” an insider told RadarOnline.
“She tried to tell me he was being flirty with her, but that’s just Lindsay’s way of embellishing because she constantly needs attention.”
Rumours have been circulating that Lindsay will feature in Ben’s upcoming movie Live by Night.
While it’s been denied by sources, the star did reportedly speak to her about the project when he visited.
“Ben came to visit Lindsay while she was at Cliffside to talk about the possibility of a role in his movie,” the insider continued.
“Lindsay was excited about the opportunity, telling me that she was going to have dark hair in the movie and would have an Irish accent.”
Apparently Ben went to Malibu a few days before Lindsay’s birthday on July 2 and left after about an hour.
The actor could be a good mentor for Lindsay, who is turning her life around with the help of Oprah Winfrey since leaving rehab, as he managed to overcome a previous problem with alcohol.
