Amanda Bynes now 'unretired'

amanda-bynesImage Credit: Frazer Harrison/Getty ImagesA little more than a month after announcing her retirement from acting on Twitter, Amanda Bynes has cryptically announced that she’s “unretired.” No reason for the change of heart was given (EW’s request for comment has not been returned), though she did also tweet the trailer for Easy A, the film she costars in opposite Emma Stone hitting theaters in September. Perhaps someone saw an early screening of that movie and has offered her a role she can’t refuse…

A month wasn’t long enough for us to miss Bynes, but her retirement did serve to bring out some closet What a Girl Wants and She’s the Man fans. And isn’t the world a better place knowing you’re not alone?

    Who the heck is this girl? No really! Who is she?

    • Rider

      Best legs in Hollywood (non-model division).

      • Chaz Winterbottom

        Don’t know about her legs, but I love the size of her tweets!

    • Abbigail

      She is amanda the star of the amanda show you know back in the nineties.

  • Sarah El

    Wishy-washy perhaps, but I’m glad Amanda Bynes will be sticking around. I’ve always liked her a lot more than most other actresses who came from Nickelodeon or Disney.

    • Nia

      I second that! I suppose I don’t keep up with her social life but she seems to be the cleanest and smartest with morals out of the bunch. I hope she continues to do well and keep stays clean. Cheers Amanda!!

  • Bob

    Slow news day? Terrible actress is still trying to get attention and so she “unretires”. Ughh

  • JC

    She is an Attention Wh**e

    • Chaz Winterbottom

      Says the guy who makes a comment for entire world to read.

  • sunny

    i agree that this is prob just a ploy for press, but I LOL’d when I read this bit on and below the story you could click on the Amanda Bynes photo gallery and the thumbnail was a pic of LC (the hills) tagged as Ms Bynes, tee hee

  • It’s a fact

    What has she done lately. . . maybe she is staring in Twitter or in her own mind. ahhh the replacement for Lindsey less the jail piece (for now)

  • Rajsen

    Thats great news..Ms Bynes has a spark and vivacity in her personality that shines through in all her performances….
    not to mention her natural and effortless comic timing…..I am sure she has taken this decision after consulting and evaluating with her loved ones.

    She seems to come across as a wonderful human being too…way to go Amanda..SHINE

    • Brenda Barrett

      Hilarious sarcasm. (Err, you aren’t serious, are you?)

    • jerry

      I agree, she’s always fun to watch. Well said Rajsen.

  • The Truth

    Sadly there are only a small percentage of those in Hollywood with great acting skills and star power. The Meryl Streeps and Anne Hathaways don’t need to keep their names in the news for producers to think of them for their next projects. Producers are competing against each other to get them. The Amanda Bynes types need to make headlines or they will be forgotten in Hollywood.

    • fancypants

      ann hathaway?? i think you mean cate blanchett or kate winslet. hathaway is average.

      • ccc

        No. Anne Hathaway. Forget Kate WInslet.

  • D

    Say what you want, but I will never see Avatar again and I have seen She’s the Man literally over 100 times.

    • ashley

      i know! i think she’s hilarious. good physical comedy actress.

    • Kylie

      I feel the same way. I own atleast 3 of her movies but I probably will never watch the Godfather again.

    • Lisa

      She’s the Man is an awesome movie. My teenage daughter quotes it all the time. Of all the teen stars of the past 10 years, Ann Hathaway and Amanda Bynes are my favorites. Wholesome fun to watch, no crotch shots on TMZ, and decently talented to boot. Glad Amanda’s not “retiring”.

    • ccc

      Bad taste in movies you have.

  • DF

    She’s the Brett Favre of the acting world.

    • Buffy Freak

      Oops..sorry didn’t see your comment before I posted mine below…

  • paige

    that was quicker than a Cher farewell tour

  • nina

    WHO CARES? no really, I remember reading the article less than a month ago saying she retired. and i thought then, who cares? the only reason im reading this is because it popped up on google news, and im bored at work. I read EVERYTHING on google news. BUT really, WHO CARES ABOUT AMANDA BYNES? she’s an alright actress ( I guess) but who cares that she is unretired, EVERYONE knows that was a publicity stunt, matter of fact i think i read this a month ago. — Irked

  • jrs

    Who cares!!!!!!

    • L

      Completely redundant but necessary “Well why are you here then hm?” comment. So…there ya go.

  • Buffy Freak

    Who does she think she is…Brett Favre?


    so glad to hear this! She is such a good comedic actress and seems down to earth.look forward to seeing her back in movies and/or t.v shows again!
