Amanda Bynes Gives First Interview in 4 Years, Says She's Sober & Wants to Act Again

Amanda Bynes looks happy and healthy in her first interview in four years!

The 31-year-old former actress went through some troubled times and now she’s opening up to Diana Madison of The Lowdown for this new interview.

“I’ve been going to school lately, fashion school [at] FIDM,” Amanda said about what she’s been up to. “I love it. I’ve learned how to sew. I make patterns. I want to start a clothing line in the future so FIDM has been helping me with that. I hike, I go spinning, I feed the homeless and that’s been really interesting and fun.”

Amanda, who revealed that she is sober now, says that she wants to act again!

“I do miss acting and I have something surprising to tell you, I’m going to start acting again,” Amanda said. “I want to do TV. Maybe a few guest spots on some shows that I’m a fan of and maybe another TV show where I’m the star of it.”

    What the hell did she do to her face? She can’t act. She should stick to retirement and so something else with her life. These girls like Bella Thorne are more in love with fame than they are with actual talent.

    haha … Bella Thorne…. good one!

    I remember watching her on Nickelodeon and What I Like About You. Although I don’t think she is the best actress, I think she has a certain charisma and comedic charm about her. I felt quite bad for her after seeing her mental breakdown. Hope she gets back up on her feet.

    I admire her efforts more than I admire Miranda Kerr’s perfectly posed life.

    Baloney, she has great comedic timing. Watch her as a 10 year old on The Amanda Show.

    Don’t be stupid, I don’t live under a cave. I used to watch her as a kid and know that show very well, which she was great in. I’ve also seen almost all her films as an adult, which was absolutely horrible. She’s not a good actress. Her acting flies for over the top kid shows when she was a kid, but not in proper films and television as an adult. Like I said, the same can be said about Bella Thorne. Good child actor, not so great adult actor. They’re not even interested in the art, they’re more interested in the fame. She should stick to retirement and do something else.

    Amanda is talented. She’s on meds tho & it might stunt her from acting.

    Oh sorry, let me dumb it down for you. 10 year old with comedic timing does not equal to a 30 year old actress in films and television. Her acting as a kid was over the top, which was fine because she was a kid in a Nickelodeon show, however her acting as an adult sucks. She can’t act.

    Anna. Your opinion means nothing. There’s a place in hollywood for mediocre actors and actresses. Not everybody needs to be Daniel-Day Lewis. She doesn’t need your approval. I bet she’s done more in her life than you have in yours.

  • Andy Morgan

    I wish her luck. She is fighting her way back, managing her health and trying to get her life back on track. Glad to see she is doing better.
