Amanda Bynes Quits Acting at 24 Via Twitter

If there’s one great thing the new social media world has provided us, it’s unprecedented access to celebrities via twitter and facebook updates. It’s also something that has prompted many celebrities with an arena to vent, and speak out to their fans about their future plans, whether positive or not. The most recent such case is with 24 year old Amanda Bynes. Bynes has posted on Twitter that at the ripe old age of 24 she is retiring from acting, and will no longer be seen on the big or small screens.

Bynes began acting when she was just ten years old on Nickelodeon’s All That, and later got her own series, The Amanda Show. She went on to a more mainstream status (if you consider the late WB as mainstream) staring alongside Jennie Garth in the series What I like about you. More recently she’s been seen in movies such as Hairspray and She’s the Man. She’s always had a tremendous talent with comedy and her timing is impeccable. But what’s appeared to be fun and games to all of us apparently hasn’t been for her, at least not recently. Bynes tweeted,

“Being an actress isn’t as fun as it may seem. If I don’t love something anymore I stop doing it. I don’t love acting anymore so I’ve stopped doing it.”

She continued saying, “I know 24 is a young age to retire but you heard it here first, I’ve #retired.”

Perhaps it’s just me, and I’m sure many of you will tell me so via the comments, but why is it always so necessary to announce something you’re going to do to such a large audience? What is the need with celebrities these days to yell out to their fans, like they’re throwing a fit, or seeking attention for their forthcoming actions, which often don’t pan-out in the first place? However, in this case, I don’t really doubt Ms. Bynes, as she’s always been a good example of celebrity, despite her sex appeal, and she’s made pretty good decisions in the past. It’s simply sad that by making such a profound statement she’s now garnering much more attention than she has with her last few films.

If she does follow through with her retirement statement then the last chance you’ll get to see her on any sized screen will be in the fall comedy Easy A which is due in theaters September 17.
