amandabynes Amanda Bynes Retired from Acting

Amanda Bynes who is 24, has been in entertainment for half of her life, landing the famous Nickelodeon show “All That” when she was 10. After getting a big fan base on All That, she then got her own show, “The Amanda Show.” Amanda then starred in movies like “Hairspray”, “She’s The Man”, and “What A Girl Wants”. Her last film will be the comedy “Easy A” starring Emma Stone.


Yes, I said it, “Her last film”. Amanda has announced that she has retired from acting! Pretty crazy! 24 is quite young to retire. Maybe she will start producing or directing??

Her big retirement announcement was done on Twitter! Do people breakup on Twitter too? LOL!

Amanda tweeted:
“Being an actress isn’t as fun as it may seem,” Bynes wrote on June 19. “If I don’t love something anymore, I stop doing it. I don’t love acting anymore, so I’ve stopped doing it.”

She then tweeted to her dad: “I know 24 is a young age to retire but you heard it here first I’ve retired… I wanna thank my dad for his words of wisdom!!!! ‘the truth will set you free’ one of his phrases I will never forget!!!!”

I can’t say I’m sad she is leaving. This gives other appreciative actors an open slot for an acting job! Yay! Don’t worry about Amanda, she’s well off in the chedda’ dept.! In 2007, she was on the Forbes list as the 5th highest paid celebrity under 21. She earned $2.5 million.
