Amanda Bynes

Born – April 3, 1986
Thousand Oaks, California, U.S.

Actress, singer, bad driver … like, really bad.

Was kind of a big deal in the '90s and early 2000s on Nickelodeon, appearing in TV shows "All That" and "The Amanda Show," then WB’s "What I Like About You" as Jenny Garth's mischievous little sister.

Was named one of "25 Hottest Stars Under 25" in 2006 by "Teen People" (remember "Teen People"?). Considered the fifth highest paid celebrity under 21 in 2007.

Made her film debut with "Big Fat Liar" in 2002. Went on to make "She’s the Man" (2006), “Hairspray” (2007), "Easy A" (2010), and then made a lot of poor decisions, some of which include:

Sideswiping a cop car, driving while intoxicated, driving with a suspended license, driving away from an accident … twice … and dying her hair pink.
