Amanda Bynes is well known for her roll on Nickelodeon's TV series 'All That' and 'The Amanda Show'. She has also starred in a couple movies including but not limited to 'She's All That' and 'What A Girl Wants'. So what has the child star, Amanda Bynes, been up to since her acting career became non-existent?
Amanda Bynes has been in the news recently because her life seems to have hit rock bottom. Within the past year, Amanda has had a series of events that ultimately left her mentally unstable and nearly being diagnosed with Anorexia Nervosa. Amanda Bynes within the last year:
• April 2012: Charged with DUI after hitting a parked police car. Few days later she was accused of an apparent 'hit and run'.
• June 2012: After being charged with the DUI, Amanda Bynes pleaded her case to Barack Obama via Twitter claiming she doesn't drink or hit and run, asking for the cop who arrested her to be fired.
• August 2012: Amanda Bynes is accused of another hit and run.
• September 2012: Amanda is formally charged with 2 counts of hit and run. She faced up to a year in jail if convicted. She pleaded not guilty. Later that month she was pulled over for driving with a suspended license. Amanda soon after had an interview with People magazine stating she was doing amazing despite her appearances and she was planning to move to New York to start a fashion line. The magazine quoted an 'observer' who saw her strip to her strapless push up bra in her spin class, spent 10 minutes on her make up before exiting the class. Towards the end of the month it was reported that she had lost her publicist, lawyer and manager within a few weeks of each other. They claimed they quit after not being able to get ahold of Amanda Bynes for nearly a month.
This was only the beginning. She constantly changed her appearance, and now claims she wants to weigh 100 pounds. Amanda Bynes is 5' 8". A weight of 100 pounds would put her at a BMI of 17.3. Clinically the mark to tell if somebody has Anorexia Nervosa is a BMI of 17.5. But anything under a BMI of 19 is considered dangerously under weight. She seems obsessed with reaching her goal. She just recently tweeted that she weighs 114, only 14 pounds to go. No matter how desperate someone is to lose weight, they should never resort to anorexia. Anorexia may take off the weight, but it was also take off some of your life. The possible result from anorexia is it will kill you.
She is the prime example of Hollywood receiving a bad reputation with being shallow about looks. The following is a slideshow portraying just how much Amanda Bynes has changed. This should show what not to do if you are wanting to lose weight. Do it smart and do it for your health. Don't go overboard with it, or else you risk the chance of looking like she does now.
