Affleck went to offer Lohan role in his upcoming movie "Live by Night".
"Ben came to visit Lindsay while she was at Cliffside to talk about the possibility of a role in his movie," radaronline quoted a former patient, who attended rehab with Lohan as saying.
"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," the patient added.
Affleck's representative has denied reports that Lohan will be part of the movie, without dismissing talks that the actor went to rehab.
Lohan was discharged from the rehab July 31. She is currently in New York.
