    I sure hope so and the right ones with the right dosage. I'm rooting for her.

    Taking her meds is the first thing I thought of too. Good for her. I hope she's getting support from friends, family and doctors.

    Many psyche meds cause weight gain. I give her a ginormous pass on her weight if she is indeed taking her meds as prescribed.

    I wish they'd leave her alone. Pics like that will set off a firestorm of people criticizing her and she might go off her meds.

    My son said the same thing when I showed him a pic of her. He used to watch the Amanda Show and had a little crush on her. When I told her she was probably only getting big because of psych meds he felt a little sorry for her. He's a nice boy...to everyone but me.

    Me too. She seems to have done the work privately and is trying to live a private life. Fingers crossed all is good with her.

    I agree. Those vultures don't give a shit about her well being they only care about getting her pic.

    Amanda Bynes opens up about drug-fueled spiral in Paper magazine

    Amanda Bynes “never liked the taste of alcohol,” and found marijuana to be her vice of choice.

    “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,” the former child star revealed in Paper magazine’s annual Break The Internet issue.

    “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 continued.

    While Bynes, now 32, experimented with “molly and ecstasy” — “[I tried] cocaine three times but I never got high from cocaine” — she learned more about Adderall after reading an article in a magazine around the time she appeared in “Hairspray,” which opened in 2007.

    “They were talking about how women were taking it to stay thin. I was like, ‘Well, I have to get my hands on that,'” Bynes said, later obtaining a prescription after visiting “a psychiatrist and faking the symptoms of ADD.”

    Bynes recalled how she “used to chew the Adderall tablets” in her trailer while filming 2010’s “Hall Pass.”

    “I remember chewing on a bunch of them and literally being scatterbrained and not being able to focus on my lines or memorize them for that matter,” she said.

    Bynes said it was “the mixture of being so high that I couldn’t remember my lines and not liking my appearance” that led to her dropping out of the film.

    “I made a bunch of mistakes but I wasn’t fired. I did leave… it was definitely completely unprofessional of me to walk off and leave them stranded when they’d spent so much money on a set and crew and camera equipment and everything,” Bynes stated.

    The release of 2010’s “Easy A” also triggered Bynes’ spiral.

    “I literally couldn’t stand my appearance in that movie and I didn’t like my performance. I was absolutely convinced I needed to stop acting after seeing it,” she said.

    “I was high on marijuana when I saw that but for some reason it really started to affect me. I don’t know if it was a drug-induced psychosis or what, but it affected my brain in a different way than it affects other people. It absolutely changed my perception of things,” Bynes continued.

    She announced her retirement from acting on Twitter in June 2010.

    “If I was going to retire [the right way], I should’ve done it in a press statement — but I did it on Twitter. Real classy! But, you know, I was high and I was like, ‘You know what? I am so over this’ so I just did it. But it was really foolish and I see that now. I was young and stupid,” Bynes recounted.

    Following the decision, Bynes said she “had no purpose in life.”

    “I would ‘wake and bake’ and literally be stoned all day long,” Bynes noted, adding she began “hanging out with a seedier crowd.”

    “I got really into my drug usage and it became a really dark, sad world for me,” she said.

    Bynes looked to social media, where she infamously tweeted in 2013, “I want @drake to murder my vagina.” She was hospitalized on an involuntary psychiatric hold in Los Angeles in 2014.

    “I’m really ashamed and embarrassed with the things I said. I can’t turn back time but if I could, I would. And I’m so sorry to whoever I hurt and whoever I lied about because it truly eats away at me. It makes me feel so horrible and sick to my stomach and sad,” Bynes said. “Everything I worked my whole life to achieve, I kind of ruined it all through Twitter.”

    Sober for almost four years, Bynes will receive her associate’s of art degree in Merchandise Product Development from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in December, before working toward her bachelor’s degree in January.

    “Those days of experimenting [with substances] are long over. I’m not sad about it and I don’t miss it because I really feel ashamed of how those substances made me act. When I was off of them, I was completely back to normal and immediately realized what I had done — it was like an alien had literally invaded my body. That is such a strange feeling,” Bynes said.

    The Paper Magazine article confirms what I thought...she's trying for the comeback trail and wants to get back into acting. And get her own fashion line. She denies any mental illness, all of her behavior was drug-induced. She's fine now. Ok. Good luck to her.

    The article and current pics of her:

    I'm glad to hear she's doing much better. I've always liked her on The Amanda Show. I wish her well. She looks great but she looks like a combination of Miley and Mama June there.

    Her face is unrecognizable in those pics.

    I thought she was adorable in Hairspray remake.

    The girl that played Tracy irritated the shit out of me.

    I hope she's doing okay and will continue to do so even after trying to get back into the business.

    I doubt that drugs were her only problem, I think that she used to self medicate with them. I also think that going back to acting is a huge mistake, she should live an anonymous life in a stable, calm environment, concentrating on her mental and physical health. She is not build to last in Tinseltown.

    Yeah, I think doing drugs was a symptom of her problems. She's really trying to downplay everything, like "hey I got off the marijuana and my problems disappeared!" Riiight. She hasn't had an acting role in close to 10 years, and she's not the bright, bubbly girl anymore. Maybe she needs the money, who knows.
