Amanda Bynes was a child star with a great career in the late 90’s and early 2000s. From having her own show, The Amanda Show to co-starring in two big sitcoms, All That and What I Like About You , Amanda seemed destined for canned laugh track greatness.
But that was not the case. Bynes acted in a handful of movies including: Hairspray, What A Girl Wants, and Easy A before exhibiting erratic public behavior, which includes getting in trouble with the law a few times before being hospitalized for a rumored schizophrenic episode.
This was back when she was still hot, two years before retiring from acting in 2012:
It’s funny how things turn out in the end. Her Easy A co-star Emma Stone ended up an Oscar winner. Amanda was often compared to Lindsay Lohan, another child star who degenerated rapidly due to her addiction to drugs. As of 2017, Lohan is studying Islam and might be selling Muslim head scarves soon, which is a bit odd.
These days Amanda stated that she’s going to fashion school. We really do hope she stays off the drugs and continues to get help for her mental illness. If you’re not already overly depressed about the whole damn thing, some nudes of her are below. They were created by some talented artists… back in happier days.
