Amanda Bynes was once went bat-shit crazy, and now we have an explanation why. The actress told PAPER magazine that a lot of her battles with depression were a result of some of her movie roles.
In the interview, she gets specific about one film in particular. Back in 2006, Bynes starred in She’s the Man– a film where Bynes pretends to be her twin brother, before all hell breaks loose.
“When the movie came out and I saw it … I didn’t like how I looked when I was a boy,” she said. She went on to say that it was “super strange and out-of-body experience. It just really put me into a funk.”
Bynes hasn’t been on the big screen in years, but she admits that she still has the acting bug. Currently, she’s a student at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Los Angeles…and no, this time she isn’t faking.
