Amanda Bynes, Then and Now: 15 Years in Pictures


Before she was a paparazzi magnet, Amanda Bynes spent a decade as an actress. The Amanda Show premiered when she was 13; she carried her first feature film at age 16, opposite Frankie Muniz in Big Fat Liar. Bynes abruptly retired from acting at age 24, then fell into a pattern of hit-and-run car crashes and tabloid titillation, ultimately moving to New York to work on a clothing line.
