Troubled actress Lindsay Lohan is set to turn her back on acting to go back to school.
The Mean Girls star - who has just been released from Utah's Cirque Lodge rehab clinic recovering from alcohol and drug addiction - plans to quit Hollywood to study psychology.
A source told Fox News: "Despite what so many people think, Lindsay is an incredibly smart girl and always wanted to have that college experience.
"She has looked into a few institutions on the east coast and will most likely major in something like psychology. At this stage, New York University is a hot favourite."
Movie insiders claim her acting career may be in tatters regardless of her college plans.
A high-profile Paramount producer revealed: "It will most likely take years of perfect behaviour before Lindsay will work again.
"It will literally cost a network millions to insure her for a movie and as talented as she is, it is highly unlikely that studios will be quick to get her back on the set."
Lindsay is currently enjoying a five-day trip in the Utah mountains with her father Michael as part of her rehab treatment.
She has been allowed to take a cell phone and requested a DVD player for their mountain lodge. Lindsay was due to start shooting the movie Poor Things opposite Hollywood beauty Rosario Dawson in mid-October.
However, the project is said to have been delayed after Lindsay failed a drugs test and was forced to remain in rehab.
