Amanda Bynes was seen naked and walking around naked in downtown LA after flagging a car down for help. She called the police to ask them to help her out and she was then placed on a 72-hour involuntary psychiatric hold. Reports are saying she seemed "in a days" and might have even possibly lived on the streets for days before being spotted. Bynes’ car was towed on March 15 in Long Beach, California, which is about 40 miles from her home and about 25 miles from downtown Los Angeles where she was found.
Bynes announced her departure from acting in 2010 when rumors of substance abuse surfaced. She was set to appear at 90s Con this weekend but didn't make it obviously. She is a child actor and was on the show "All That" with cast mate Kel Mitchell. "It's awesome to see she's doing better. Which is great. We're just continuing to pray for her on her journey, and it's answered prayers that she's doing a lot better." Bynes is 36 years old and started acting professionally early in her life. The WB's "What I Like About You" (2002-2006) and her own sketch comedy show called "The Amanda Show," which she hosted on Nickelodeon between 1999 and 2002 starting at age 13. She also starred in films including 2006's soccer rom-com "She’s the Man" with Channing Tatum, father-daughter movie "What a Girl Wants" (2003), and 2007's movie musical "Hairspray." She said "I started smoking marijuana when I was 16. Even though everyone thought I was the 'good girl,' I did smoke marijuana from that point on." she told Paper. "I didn't get addicted (then) and I wasn't abusing it. And I wasn't going out and partying or making a fool of myself … yet." She then moved onto other drugs. "Later it progressed to doing molly and ecstasy," she continued, noting she also tried cocaine but disliked it.
Adderall was another drug she said she abused, acquiring a prescription from a psychiatrist after pretending to have symptoms of attention deficit disorder. At the time, she had read an article about the drug being used to stay skinny, according to Paper. After "Easy A" came out in 2010, Bynes was upset with how she looked in the film. "I saw it and I was convinced that I should never be on camera again and I officially retired on Twitter, which was, you know, also stupid." "But without a sense of purpose, Bynes "got really into my drug usage" and "was just stuck at home, getting high, watching TV and tweeting." Bynes also set a fire in a neighbor's driveway.
