I want to start this article by saying, back when Amanda Bynes was battling with depression and reports of her breakdown were circulating — I cried.
Amanda is most certainly one of my favourite actresses to have appeared on television. She has played the role of many unique and diverse characters, all of which us, as viewers, have taken advantage.
Her stardom has brought fake friends, and false support networks and the media certainly haven’t supported her transition in battling her demons. During an interview with PAPER, Amanda is discussing her past drug issues alongside deep depression and acceptance that primarily was triggered by a particular role.

Starring in She’s The Man, her character dressed as a boy in order to impersonate her brother. Amanda said, “When the movie came out and I saw it… I didn’t like how I looked when I was a boy,”. she explained it as being “super strange and out-of-body experience. It just really put me into a funk,”.
Amanda has been a fashion student for a few years but would eventually like to get back into acting.
