Amanda Bynes is an American former actress who rose to prominence in the 1990s and 2000s for her work in film and television. She became famous as a child star on Nickelodeon in the late 1990s and early 2000s thanks to the sketch comedy series All That and its offshoot series The Amanda Show.

Bynes made her major debut in Big Fat Liar as Kaylee, and went on to star in many successful films such as “What a Girl Wants”,” “Hairspray,” “Sydney White,” and “Easy A.” She declared her retirement from acting in 2010, and in the years that followed, she made news for arrests for driving under the influence and other substance-related issues.

Substance abuse and retirement

Bynes discussed her mental health and substance misuse in a 2018 interview with Paper Magazine, stating that she has been sober for 4 years and wants to return to acting. Bynes announced her retirement from acting on Twitter in 2010, and the former child star’s life has seemed to fall south since then.

Here is how Bynes transitioned from a Hollywood star with a promising future to a relatively low profile, the retired child actress who recently announced her engagement to an unknown fiancée. Bynes has suffered from substance misuse and has legal troubles in her widely known personal life. In 2010, she stopped acting due to personal issues. Bynes indicated an interest in returning to performing on television in 2018.

Mistakes made on Twitter

She stated on Twitter that she wanted musician Drake to ‘murder her vagina.’ She called him “ugly” in another tweet before apologizing and calling him “beautiful.” Drake called her remarks “strange and frightening” in response. She was considered for the role of ‘Jess’ in ‘New Girl,’ but Zooey Deschanel was cast instead. Because of her odd lifestyle, she is alienated from her sister Jillian Bynes.
