Lindsay's talent will save her: Manager

Lindsay's talent will save her: Manager

Lindsay Lohan is too "incredibly talented" to fail at a career comeback, according to her new manager.

The troubled star is now being represented by Larry Rudolph - the manager credited with getting Britney Spears' career back on track after her breakdown and hospitalisation in 2007 - who says he is confident the 'Machete' actress can resurrect her film career.

When asked if Lohan - who was recently released after a stint in jail and rehab - is now ready to make a comeback, Larry said: "Yeah, absolutely. She's in a good place now.

"When you've got that much talent - you can never count somebody like that out. She's incredibly smart, she's incredibly talented, and she's a star. She has everything she needs."

Lindsay, 24, was released from jail on August 2 after serving just 13 days of a 90-day sentence for breaking the conditions of her probation for a 2007 driving under influence (DUI) conviction. She then spent 22 days in rehab at the UCLA Medical Center before being released.

She has since spoken of her desire to return to acting and had her driving licence returned.

Lindsay's father, Michael - who is estranged from the rest of his family - claims he has also had a part in his daughter's recovery, by making a "pact" with God.

Speaking after the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) where Lindsay appeared in a video message, he said: "While some have made their pacts with the Devil, I made mine with God, to take me first, or simply help Lindsay find her way back.

"My prayers were met. On the MTV Music Awards, I saw, heard and now know that Lindsay is back and I believe she will be better than ever."
