Actress Amanda Bynes, 24, declared early Saturday morning that she's retiring from acting. Her declaration came by way of a series of tweets.
"Being an actress isn't as fun as it may seem. If I don't love something anymore I stop doing it. I don't love acting anymore so I've stopped doing it," she stated.
"I know 24 is a young age to retire but you heard it here first I’ve #retired," she continued.
Bynes has starred in television shows such as Nickelodeon's All That and The Amanda Show as well as the sitcom What I Like About You. Her film credits include She's the Man and What a Girl Wants. The last movie in which she appeared was Hairspray in 2007.
It would be interesting if that's it, and she's really done. But a more likely scenario is that she will make a "comeback" sometime down the road.
Call me cynical, but it certainly smells like a strategic move for a career that may not be going in the direction Ms. Bynes had hoped. But if not, it will be interesting to see what she goes on to do.
Good luck to her either way.
