Amanda Bynes is an actor who featured in many films and shows in the 90s and 2000s. She began her career as a child star and worked her way up to prominent projects like She’s the Man and What a Girl Wants. However, substance abuse and legal issues made her take an indefinite hiatus from acting.
In a fresh development, Bynes apparently had a breakdown and was seen roaming around naked on the streets. Fortunately, she got the help of a good samaritan who called 911, after which she was put on a 3-day psychiatric hold. This episode is emblematic of her sad downfall from the heights of success in Hollywood to the lows of substance abuse and embarrassing behavior.
