(Newser) – Ben Affleck knows a little something about rehab, so he decided to show his support to Lindsay Lohan during her most recent stay. While she was at Cliffside Malibu, Affleck met with her secretly to give her some tips on staying sober in Hollywood—and making a successful comeback. Sources tell TMZ that Affleck also told LiLo she's talented and has the support of others in the entertainment industry, and that LiLo was moved by his words. (Some outlets reported Affleck was offering Lindsay a role in his new movie, but TMZ says that's not the case.)

Meanwhile, Lohan's much-anticipated sit-down with Oprah Winfrey airs on OWN Sunday at 9pm, and previews have been trickling out. In the latest, E! reports, Lindsay tells Oprah, "I'm my own worst enemy, and I know that." This and previous promos have shown Winfrey interrogating Lohan with questions including, "Do you think you can turn it around?", "What is it that you are addicted to?", "What's going to be different this time?", and "When you get the first DUI, is that a wake-up call?" Winfrey said last week that Lohan's responses seemed "honest" and "authentic."
