Hopefully Amanda is able to do some low-key celebrating…because it’s her birthday! The ‘Easy A’ actress turns 29 today, April 3.
The end of 2014 was pretty rough for Amanda Bynes, but for the last several months, she’s been kept a low-key profile while remaining under the conservatorship of her mother, Lynn. Today, April 3, the troubled starlet turns 29, and although she’s seemed to have put her hard-partying lifestyle behind her, we hope she’s able to find a healthy way to enjoy the day! To celebrate the recovering actress, we’ve put together a gallery of her pics from the year — click through to check it out!
Amanda Bynes’ Birthday — Actress Turns 29 On April 3
Things were going well for Amanda after her 28th birthday in 2014. Following a troubling 2013, during which she was involuntarily hospitalized on a 5150 hold and placed in treatment for months, she was looking healthier than ever while under her parents’ care, and was even taking classes at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in California.
But things took a turn for the worst in September, when the former Nickelodeon star was arrested for DUI in California. She was able to post bail, though, and was spotted displaying strange behavior throughout California and New York for the next several days. She even claimed to have gotten engaged to a man she met in rehab the year before!
Although her parents tried to have her hospitalized again, she was quickly released when doctors and a judge found she was well enough to not be held involuntarily. This led Amanda to make shocking claims about her father on social media, alleging that he physically and sexually abused her when she was younger.
Amanda Bynes Getting Her Act Together
In mid-November, Amanda publicly apologized to her parents, saying in a statement, “I am doing my best to get better. I am truly sorry for the statements I made. I am sorry for any pain I caused my family and others.” She also revealed that she’d been diagnosed as bipolar and manic-depressive.
Since then, Amanda’s mother has regained her conservatorship, and the birthday girl has been laying low, resurfacing on Twitter only a few times to share selfies and a picture of her artwork.
Here’s to hoping 29 is Amanda’s best year yet!
