Well, that didn't take long. Within hours of her release from a 90-day, court-mandated stint in rehab, Lindsay Lohan has already made a return to the rumor mill -- in the form of erroneous casting stories. 

According to reports, the troubled starlet has already been in talks to take on a role as a waitress with a heart of gold in Ben Affleck's upcoming project, Live by Night. But, a source close to the movie tells Us Weekly, the rumors couldn't be further from the truth.

"It's not true," the source said. "First off, no one has been cast. [Lohan] will not be cast in any role in the movie. She is not being considered for any role in the movie. She won't be in the movie."

Lohan, 27, made plenty of headlines in the lead-up to, filming of, and aftermath of her last movie, The Canyons, but is in no rush to jump into the next project, having even reportedly booked a one-way ticket to Europe, according to TMZ.

In an interview with Piers Morgan prior to her stint in rehab, Lohan admitted that she thought traveling would benefit her more than being confined to a building.

"I think there are other things I could do instead of going to a rehab center that would benefit me more," she said at the time. "The best thing they could do for me would be to make me go abroad to different countries and work with children."

On Tuesday, July 30, the Mean Girls actress looked happy and relaxed as she left the Cliffside Malibu Rehab Center in a blue patterned minidress, fringe suede jacket and booties.

She will next take part in an eight-episode docu-series on Oprah Winfrey's OWN network, as well as guest-host with outspoken Chelsea Handler on her show, Chelsea Lately.

"Lindsay seems totally fine, her inner circle really do think that this time she is legit getting her act together," a source close to the actress told Us. "In all honesty, yeah, she has had her bad moments and made some bad choices, but when you get to know Lindsay, she is really a powerful and captivating woman when you hear what she has to say."

"I wish more people were able to see that side of her, but it looks like she's on her way!" the source added.
