Movies and TV Shows starring Amanda Bynes
Bynes began her career in the film industry when she was 10 years old in the sketch comedy series “All That” for four years from 1996 to 2000. She later appeared on “The Amanda Show” for three years from 1999 to 2002. She played various roles on the series until her 2002 departure from the sitcoms.
She gained both name and fame for her acting in the Nickelodeon sitcoms. She was awarded Favorite Television Actress in the year 2000 by Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards for “All That” and was nominated four times for The Amanda Show.
She made her film debut with the 2002 movie “Big Fat Liar” playing a supporting role. After that, she starred in many successful films and television series.

In 2010, she started filming for her upcoming movie “Hall Pass”, but she later dropped out and later announced her decision to retire from acting indefinitely. We haven’t seen her on the big screen for over a decade.
Bynes was charged with drink-driving in the West Hollywood area in 2012, but the charges were dropped after a few years and she was given three years’ probation. She was again charged with reckless danger and drug possession when she was found in the lobby of her Manhattan apartment in May 2013.
After a series of mental health and substance abuse issues were reported, she was placed under temporary receivership in 2013. It was later announced that the judge has decided that her guardianship should be extended for another ten years until 2023.
According to court documents obtained by some media companies, a judge has ruled that Bynes must remain under the protection of the court for a few more years.
Amanda Bynes Relationship Status
In 2001, Bynes was in a relationship with her co-star Taran Killam, but that relationship only lasted a year. Bynes, 17, was then in a relationship with Nick Zano, 24, the following year and broke up again in 2004.
Her latest relationship was revealed last year in 2020 on her Instagram page with Paul Michael†
She announced their engagement, but it was called off after three weeks. It was later discovered that their breakup announcement was a hoax as Michael said their Instagram accounts had been hacked.
Bynes shared an ultrasound photo on her Instagram account in March 2020 with the caption that they are expecting their first child. However, her post was deleted after some time and her lawyer said the couple were not expecting a child.
Amanda Bynes and Her Conservatorship Battle
Amanda Bynes was subject to the legal restrictions of a conservatory. Seven years ago, she tweeted about her bipolar diagnosis. This information hinted at her addiction to drugs.
The use of drugs left her unable to make coherent decisions, and Lynn Organ was given the right to become her conservator for her mother. The Nickelodeon star needs her mother’s permission to make a financial decision.
Three years ago, in 2018, paperwork was filed to continue the conservatory for a few more years. Last year in February 2020, Bynes updated her Instagram account explaining that she no longer needs a conservator and needs the support of her fans.
Her mother Lynn Organ recently filed a status report in July 2021 in which a judge decided to further extend the conservatory until March 8, 2023, after examining her documents.
Bynes wanted to fight and even went to court after her conservatory was extended to 2023 in September 2021. But her efforts were in vain as the court refused to grant her freedom request.
However, her lawyer reportedly defended the court’s verdict, saying, “Her conservatorship will not be extended until March 2023. It is open day to day.”
He went on to say: “A status report on her health and wellbeing was recently filed and approved by the court. By law, the next status report is due in two years. Her guardianship ends if it no longer suits Amanda.”
Recently, Amanda Bynes’ custody was terminated on March 22, ending the legal settlement.
Bynes seems very happy as she thanked her fans for their support. She is now independent to make decisions about her life and has the freedom to make her own choices.
