GET SMART: Just out of rehab, Lindsay Lohan is rumoured to be quitting Hollywood and heading back to school.

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.
