What happened to Amanda Bynes? The child actress turned movie star turned adult disaster appears to have turned a corner. She has spent the past five years out of the spotlight and away from the tabloids. Amanda Bynes recovery has been a long road, here’s what she’s up to today.

In a recent interview with Diana Madison, the Easy A actress says that she is three years sober, currently in fashion school, and hoping to get back into acting. Bynes got her start in show business when she was just seven years old. By the time she was 13, she had her own series on Nickelodeon called The Amanda Show. She would go on to star in the WB sitcom What I Like About You in 2002. Then, Amanda’s film career quickly went into overdrive with movies like Easy A and Hairspray.

Unfortunately, like many child actors, her career derailed because of personal issues. She was involved in two alleged hit-and-run accidents, was charged with two DUIs, was forced to enter a mental health facility, and had a very public meltdown on Twitter. Though Amanda Bynes has begun her journey to recovery, she reentered rehab in January 2019 to seek counseling, shortly after returning to the Hollywood spotlight.
