Ah, Amanda Bynes! Do you remember Amanda Bynes movies and tv shows?
She was among the most prominent faces of the glory days of the nineties.
If you have an “Only a 90’s Kid Will Remember These” list, chances are, she would be on there.
It seems like only yesterday that she was a cute bubbly, pre-teen, delighting the world with her antics on Nickelodeon shows like All That and The Amanda Show (where she was the sole eponymous star). Here is a list of 15 fun and outrageous facts about Amanda Bynes
As Amanda grew up, it seemed like she was headed into the former-child-star-gone-bad route.
Her young adult years started okay at first.
When she became too old for Nickelodeon shows, she eventually got herself prominent roles in movies like Love Wrecked, She’s the Man, Hairspray, and Easy A.
Everything seems to be going well for her.
As the second decade in the new millennium rolled along, Amanda found herself embroiled in a bizarre number of disturbing situations. She was arrested for a DUI, two hit-and-run incidents, reckless driving- all these in 2012 alone.
The next year wasn’t kinder, as she also faced arrest for criminal possession of marijuana and reckless endangerment (caused by her throwing a bong out of the window). Eventually, her mother was granted a temporary conservatorship of her affairs.
So, what happened to Amanda Bynes since then?
Has things been looking up for her? Well, the answer seems to be a YES.
Judging from her social media profiles and the fact that there hasn’t been any negative news about her in the past year. She attended a psychiatric care facility a few years ago, and when she got out, enrolled herself at the Fashion Institute of Design and Marketing in Los Angeles.
She took a break from school last year- for a skin operation, according to a friend – but she finally resumed her studies this year. Her life seems to be on solid ground once more.
