Amanda Bynes Retires From Acting
Stick a fork in “Brotha Lova” Amanda Bynes.
The former Nickelodeon actress — who co-starred with Jennie Garth on the now-defunct WB comedy What I Like About You — hit Twitter over the weekend to announce her retirement from acting.
“Being an actress isn’t as much fun as it may seem,” was Amanda’s response when quizzed by fans on her abrupt decision to call it quits.
That’s Celebrity Speak for “No One Will Hire Me!”
“I’ve never written the movies & TV shows I’ve been a part of, I’ve only acted like the characters the producers or directors wanted me to play,” she Tweeted on Saturday.
“Being an actress isn’t as fun as it may seem. If I don’t love something any more I stop doing it. “I don’t love acting any more so I’ve stopped doing it.”
“I know 24 is a young age to retire, but you heard it here first – I’ve retired.”
Amanda kicked off her acting career when she was seven, landing a star-making role alongside Nick Cannon on the Nickelodeon sketch comedy All That before headlining The Amanda Show on the network. By 2007, Bynes was the fifth highest-paid actress under 21 by 2007, worth an estimated $2.5 million. She later hit the big screen in films like She’s The Man and Hairspray.
If the actress’ retirement revelation holds true, Bynes’ last film project may be the Emma Stone-assisted comedy Easy A, opening Sept. 17.
