Actress Amanda Bynes is back! She has been absent for quite some time, after struggling with some personal issues with substance abuse. Amanda is the youngest of three children and her parents are in dentistry industry. The 31 year old born on April 3, 1986, in Thousand Oaks, California, sat down with talk show hostess and celebrity fashion blogger Diana Madison. She certainly seems to be down to Earth nowadays.
Amanda seems to be a new woman now, trying to shed away those infamous tabloid off screen moments while being arrested. Her head seems to be screwed on straight and she seems more mature than once before.
Amanda says she is 3 years sober and ready to acting again, after straightening out struggles with her personal life. Everyone remembers her meltdown which involved driving violations, DUI s, hit-and-runs, a psychiatric hold, public mania madness and her wearing strange looking wigs.
She was once on top of the world with her career, appearing in 20 different productions. Her acting debut was in 1996, when she auditioned for and got the role as a newcomer on All That (1994). Producers noticed her talent rather quickly, thereby starting up a variety series simply titled “The Amanda Show” it premiered back in 1999. She was only 13 years old but had a red hot career ahead of her.
Her last credit was the film ‘Easy A’ released back in 2010. She mentioned that she wants to start back with television but no doubt a film role wouldn’t be out of the picture either. Her acting roots date back to an early age. When she was only 3 years old, she began performing while reciting lines with her sister Jillian’s when she performed in plays.
As Amanda talked with Diana, while sipping on her Starbucks strawberry acai tea—she opened up about the comment she made to Canadian rapper, singer, and songwriter Drake.
“I actually wasn’t being insincere. I was, like, saying ‘Murder my vagina.’ I was serious, but I was also on drugs. So that was my way of saying, like, ‘Let’s do it, man!’ But I was, like, on drugs and trying to be hilarious,” Bynes told Diana Madison.
Amanda also has an eye for fashion and is eager to start a clothing line up now. She seems to be laser focused on what she wants in her life and is ready to start fresh once again. She joked during her interview about a few things and even poked fun of herself. Fans, family and friends are happy for her.
