The troubled 27-year-old star began professionally acting at the age of 7 and stepped into the spotlight in 1999 when she landed her own series on Nickelodeon called “The Amanda Bynes Show.” Although she announced she was quitting acting multiple times over the last few years, her career came to a screeching halt once she was arrested in 2012 for a DUI.
Since then, Bynes has been displaying more erratic behavior, tweeting about her alleged eating disorder and plastic surgery and posting photos of her extreme makeover. In May 2013, she was arrested at her home in Manhattan for criminal possession of marijuana, attempted tampering with evidence, and reckless endangerment. And most recently, she was hospitalized under a 5150 mental health evaluation hold after allegedly starting a small fire in the driveway of a stranger’s house in Thousand Oaks, Calif. Her parents are currently trying to seek a conservatorship saying that their daughter is unable to care for herself and could be a danger to others.
