Amanda Bynes, 26, has had a tough year. From suspected DUIs to hit-and-runs to reports of erratic behaviour, the former child star seems to be on a downward spiral reminiscent of Britney Spears shaving her head or Lindsay Lohan‘s legal troubles.
For her part, Bynes has denied she’s in any trouble. TMZ reported that the actress said she is “perfectly capable of making her own life choices.”
We investigated Bynes’ journey from illustrious child star to movie star to retirement at age 24. We also chronicled her erratic behaviour as of late.
We hope that Bynes will sort out her legal troubles and get back to being a talented actress.
She had an upper-middle-class upbringing with her parents, a dentist and a dental assistant. Her dad also practiced stand-up comedy.
Bynes starred in 'The Amanda Show,' a program where she did comedy skits.
She starred in teen successes 'She's The Man' and 'What A Girl Wants.'
Amanda's last film credit is is playing mean girl 'Marianne' in 2010's 'Easy A.'
The then-24-year-old tweeted 'I don't love acting anymore so I've stopped doing it.'
She claimed she wanted to get into writing, directing and producing.
A woman said that Bynes rear-ended her and then drove away without getting her information. Soon after, another woman came forward to say she had a similar experience with Bynes.
He said the conversations could go on for hours.
She was allegedly in the gym last week looking dazed, talking to herself and laughing hysterically for no reason.
