After appearing in several successful TV series (All That and The Amanda Show) on Nickelodeon in the mid-to late 1990 (29 years ago) and early 2000s, Bynes transitioned to a movie career, starring in several movies aimed at teenage audiences, including She's the Man (2006, 13 years ago) and Hairspray (2007, 12 years ago).

Early life

Her maternal grandparents are from Toronto, Ontario. Bynes's father is Catholic and her mother is Jewish; she has described herself as Jewish, and also stated "I haven't decided yet [on a religion]. I don't know yet exactly what I believe".

Career

In 1993 (26 years ago), Bynes was trained as an actress by Arsenio Hall and Richard Pryor at a comedy camp, and began professionally acting at the age of seven, appearing in a TV advertisement for Buncha Crunch candies. During her childhood, she also appeared on stage in versions of Annie, The Secret Garden, The Music Man and The Sound of Music. After taking acting classes, Bynes became a regular cast member of Nickelodeon's Figure It Out and All That (both in 1996 (23 years ago)). Bynes remained a regular cast member on All That until its presumed cancellation in 2000 (19 years ago), though she appeared in the sketches since shooting and preparing as the star of her own sketch show The Amanda Show, also on Nickelodeon.

Although she is often compared with them, Bynes has said that "It's like being the hot girl at the high school party. I was never that girl. I grew up with terrible acne and feeling insecure. I was tall and skinny. I didn't feel pretty at all, and guys didn't even like me. That's why I got into comedy." Bynes has also said that her relatability to teenage audiences may stem from the fact that she is "more similar to them than some... socialite or whatever".

In 2006 (13 years ago), Bynes starred in She's the Man, a comedy based on William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night; in the film, Bynes disguises herself as her brother in order to join the boys' soccer team due to the fall of the girls' team. Producers had originally wanted to cast singer Jesse McCartney as Bynes' brother, noting a physical resemblance between McCartney and Bynes disguised as a boy, but McCartney was unavailable.

The line launched in stores Aug. 16, 2007 (12 years ago).

Personal life

Bynes graduated from Thousand Oaks High School's independent study program (though she attended La Reina High School in Thousand Oaks for some time) and has expressed a desire to attend New York University in the near future. She briefly moved into an apartment in Hollywood, California, but has since returned to her family home. Bynes is interested in drawing and fashion design, having commented that she is "the girl whose biggest nightmare would be to lose my makeup bag while traveling."

In 2007 (12 years ago), she spoke out against becoming another wild Hollywood star. "I think I’ll go out as much as I’ve ever gone out... which is not a lot. I like to dance and stuff, but drinking isn’t good for you in every way. It’s not good for your skin; it makes you feel horrible. So, drinking-wise, no". She reinforced these ideas throughout the summer of 2007 (12 years ago), on the talk show circuit, and in many press interviews. She told Access Hollywood, "I like being with my family and friends, and I don't need to be out at the clubs." In an interview in dec. 2007 (12 years ago), Bynes detailed how her parents taught her about alcohol.

She has since stated that she is "reevaluating" how to spend her social time. In the Jan. 2009 (10 years ago) issue of Cosmopolitan, Bynes stated: "I used to be known as the girl who was anti the club scene. But I'm finding a balance. I can have a drink and dance if I want. You have to go out to meet people and guys. I'm in that phase where I just want to have fun."
