Lindsay Lohan has a "mountain" of scripts to choose from when she leaves rehab.

The troubled actress - who will continue receiving treatment at the Betty Ford Clinic until early next year - is not suffering from financial problems and has been inundated with offers for when she returns to work, claims a close friend.

Ethan Terra - who is co-owner of Lindsay's mother Dina's production company - said: "Lindsay has absolutely no qualms about getting work. She literally has a mountain pile of scripts to choose from. When she is ready, we'd like to see her take on a positive role; she is doing so amazingly well with her recovery."

Earlier this week, it was announced that Lindsay will no longer have a role in the Linda Lovelace biopic 'Inferno', with director Matthew Wilder claiming she was dropped because of the "impossibility" of insuring her.

However, Ethan insists the 24-year-old star would have had no problems getting insured and left the project of her own accord because she didn't want to jeopardise her recovery from drug addiction.

He told Fox News' Pop Tarts: "It's not fair in any way, shape, or form for those reports to be out there. Lindsay is 100 percent insurable, all she had to do was put up a fee as a Bond then she would have been paid upon completion. I could insure her today. She was definitely not fired.

"Lindsay and her team decided that a film like this would be counterproductive. When she takes on a role she really becomes the character, and right now she is surrounded by nothing but positivity, so putting her back into a negative frame of mind would be very self-destructive. When she signed on to that role she was surrounded by negativity, and now she's in a much stronger and more positive place."

Ethan also insisted Lindsay - who has been replaced in the movie by 'Watchmen' actress Malin Akerman - is not upset about leaving the project.

He said: "She's totally OK with it."
