Lindsay Lohan Receives Support From Celebrity Friends: Ben Affleck, Oprah Winfrey And Chaka Khan

Ben Affleck paid Lindsay Lohan a visit whilst she was in rehab. He advised her on how to remain sober after she leaves the facility. Affleck, who has also been in alcohol rehab, advised the 27-year-old actress on how to turn her career around.

Lohan and Affleck, according to TMZ, sat down in a meeting somewhere away from the Malibu Cliffside Rehab facility. Affleck advised Lohan on how to remain sober once she left the facility. He also promised that the entertainment community are considerably more supportive of those leaving rehab than one would expect.

The Canyons actress was in rehab following a ruling by a judge in March. She was sentenced to spend 90 days in rehab. Affleck has also spent time in rehab. In 2001 he completed a stay in alcohol rehab. Lohan's career has taken a downward turn and Affleck gave her advice on how to remedy this. He allegedly told her how talented she is and that she could change her ways and lead a sober life.

Affleck is not the only celebrity friend to be offering Lohan support. Singer Chaka Khan has posted a statement of support, in which she states Lohan's actions are "commendable" and that she is choosing "to do what is necessary to better one's self."

Oprah Winfrey has become Lohan's mentor and they are due to appear on Sunday on OWN, when Winfrey interviews Lohan. In promotional footage of the interview, Winfrey asks her guest whether she is an addict and how does she feel about being labelled as a child star gone wrong? In another clip, released on Tuesday (13th August), Lohan says "I'm my own worst enemy, and I know that."

See Winfrey interview Lohan on Oprah Winfrey: The Next Chapter on OWN at 9pm on Sunday 18th August.
