Back in 2001, we talked to the rising young star on the set of Nickelodeon's 'The Amanda Show.' What went wrong?
Airing from 1999 to 2002, the All That spin-off show turned Bynes, now 28, into a star.
But clearly, it hasn't all been smooth sailing from there. In the last month, the troubled actress has made daily headlines with erratic behavior, explosive allegations and – on October 10 – a return to being held at a psychiatric treatment facility, potentially for up to a year.
Both Bynes' mental health struggles and trouble with the law are well-documented, but when did it all start going south for the troubled child star?
Let's take a look back at a timeline of her troubles »
The ''heartbroken'' mother of the troubled actress Amanda Bynes has released a statement following her daughter's comments on sexual abuse. Amanda Bynes shocked her Twitter followers last week after she tweeted several messages which alleged that her father, Rick Bynes had sexually abused her growing up. Although she later deleted the messages and posted an apology, the 'Easy A' actress was then reportedly placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold for 72 hours, according to TMZ. Now her mother, Lynn Bynes has released a statement to E! News via her attorney, Tamar Arminak regarding the situation. It stated: ''I am heartbroken today for my husband of 47 years. Rick has been the best father and husband a family can ask for. He has never abused Amanda or our other children physically or sexually. ''These accusations are absolutely horrible and could not be further from the truth! These allegations stem from Amanda's mental »

The highly anticipated film Birdman hits cinemas this week, with Emma Stone getting a lot of buzz for her performance. In honor of the role, we’re taking a look at the actress’ crazy face. Not crazy in the way that it looks — Emma is one foxy lady — but crazy because it seems to be made entirely of rubber. Seriously, some of her facial contortions give even the likes of Jim Carrey a run for their money.
Admittedly, many of her best looks come from Easy A (the Lobster Shack scene, people!), but she’s got a long history of absolutely Going There when it comes to twisting her face for dramatic or comedic effect. From The House Bunny to Crazy, Stupid, Love, Emma’s roles are only as good as the faces she makes while playing them. Kim Kardashian may have perfected Duck Face, but only »

Back at it. Amanda Bynes returned to Twitter on Tuesday, Oct. 7, re-upping her social media presence after a five-month hiatus.

Though she had stayed out of the public eye for many months, Bynes has had an eventful couple of weeks. The Easy A actress arrived in New York City on Friday, Oct. 3, [...] »

Acclaimed magician Stanley Crawford (Firth), has dazzled audiences across Europe with feats of supernatural amazement, but when it comes to explaining the inexplicable, Stanley is a dedicated skeptic. Enter Sophie Baker (Stone), psychic, soothsayer, and stunning seductress. As Stanley and Sophie embark on misadventures up and down the French Riviera, will they discover proof of a world beyond the laws of physics or have they fallen under the sway of a more earthly chemistry?
Last week Claire — and the audience — were subjected to a harrowing experience. We got up close and personal with an honest-to-God psychopath wrapped in a shell of gentility. Black Jack Randall is welcome to die in a fire. But with the help of Scottish Santa, Claire escaped…and was immediately betrothed to Jamie to save her from falling back into the British army’s clutches. So without further ado, on to “The Wedding!” ************** Full disclosure: By the end of this episode, I am still solidly Team Frank. Instead of opening at the wedding, or with a flurry of wedding preparation spearheaded by Mrs. Fitz (because she’s back at Castle Leoch), we open at another wedding. Claire and Frank’s to be precise. Just grind that salt into the wound harder, Starz. Frank and Claire are holding hands and walking past the courthouse when Frank stops. Claire is puzzled »

A couple of days ago, Ghostbusters star Bill Murray gave his two cents on the news that the next Ghostbusters film could be an all-female reboot, as well as name the actresses who he would love to see involved.
Yahoo! Movies caught up with one of those that Murray named, Kristen Wiig, at the Toronto International Film Festival and she gave her thoughts on Murray’s endorsement.
“I will do whatever Bill Murray tells me to,” she joked.
Saturday Night Live alumn Bill Hader, who co-stars with Wiig in the upcoming The Skeleton Twins, said: “I don’t want to pressure you…. But you should do it… And you should have a friend, who’s, like, a guy who has to carry around your proton pack.”

Sony have released a new poster for their remake of Annie directed by Will Gluck (Easy A) which sees Quvenzhané Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) taking on the lead role alongside Jamie Foxx (The Amazing Spider-Man 2) Cameron Diaz (The Counselor), Rose Byrne (X-Men: First Class), Bobby Cannavale (Boardwalk Empire) and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Thor: The Dark World). You can watch the trailer here.
Here’s the poster:
Academy Award® nominee Quvenzhané Wallis stars as Annie, a young, happy foster kid who’s also tough enough to make her way on the streets of New York in 2014. Originally left by her parents as a baby with the promise that they’d be back for her someday, it’s been a hard knock life ever since with her mean foster mom Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz). But everything’s about to change when the hard-nosed tycoon and New York mayoral candidate Will »

Lionsgate’s Grindstone Entertainment has acquired all North American rights to Hamlet writer/director Michael Almereyda’s modern day adaptation of Shakespeare’s play Cymbeline ahead of its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival, it was announced today by the film’s producers, Michael Benaroya of Benaroya Pictures and Anthony Katagas of Keep Your Head Productions.

Back-to-school: that well-worn term that means fresh school supplies, new classes, old friends and falling leaves. Students stock their lockers again in August and September after a refreshing summer (remember summer break? Do you?). But for those who have graduated high school... well, high school was a trial by fire. If you "Can't Hardly Wait" to head to "Animal House," you've gotta take a load of "Brick." You can't go "Old School" until you've learned "The Perks of Being a Wall Flower." You haven't achieved "Higher Learning" without having started out "Clueless." To get to "22 Jump Street," you have to have attended "21 Jump Street," you know? HitFix staffers traveled back in time to explain how flicks like "Mean Girls," "Easy A," "Carrie," "Three O'Clock High," "Fast Times at Ridgemont High," "The Breakfast Club," "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" and "The Faculty" are secretly the most traumatizing and mortifying films, because of those high school life lessons. »

When the talented young actress Chloë Grace Moretz burst onto the scene, truly coming to prominence with her performance as Hit-Girl in the 2010 superhero flick Kick-Ass, she was a breath of fresh air. She may have looked like a sweet, innocent young girl – but subverted the stereotype with an invigorating, energetic, and somewhat unrefined turn, signalling the start of what has since been a flourishing career, which has seen her collaborate with Martin Scorsese in Hugo, and turn to her dark side in the Carrie remake. However her latest endeavour, R.J. Cutler’s If I Stay, is a dramatic step backwards, as she plays the cliched, ‘misunderstood’ teenager with about as much depth as a paddling pool. A character that is everything we had hoped she would never become.
Moretz plays Mia Hall, an introverted high school student, who prefers to play her cello and listen to Beethoven, than go »

In case you forgot, there's still a remake of the classical musical Annie coming this winter, just before families get together for Christmas. This time it's breakout Beasts of the Southern Wild actress Quvenzhané Wallis taking the titular lead as an orphan who gets upgraded to the big time when New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx) takes her under his wing in a mutually beneficial relationship used to boost his approval ratings and give Annie an upscale home for awhile. But of course, they end up finding a unique bond, and Stacks ends up wanting to have a more permanent place in her life. This latest trailer from the United Kingdom goes into full-on musical mode in the Big Apple. Watch now!

Bert V. Royal (Easy A) has signed on to write the screenplay, which centers on a teenage boy who is at the top of his social circle in Manhattan. In the aftermath of his parents' messy divorce, he is transplanted to a small town in Indiana, where he finds himself "uncool" for the first time in his life. With his bar mitzvah coming up, he hatches a plan to become cool again, which doesn't go quite so well.
Dan Elish and Robert Horn wrote the book for the play, with Jason Robert Brown penning the music for the play, which debuted at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles in 2007, before moving to Broadway in 2008.

Call it Dreamboys. Laurence Mark has signed to produce a big-screen version of Jason Robert Brown‘s smart teen tuner 13 for CBS Films. Mark will team with Bob Boyett, the TV veteran (Happy Days, Bosom Buddies)-turned-theater producer who mounted the Broadway show. It’s about a Bar Mitzvah boy unsettlingly transplanted from Manhattan, where he’s cool, to an Indiana burg, where he’s not. Until he is. David Blackman is exec producing.
Bert V. Royal (Easy A) is writing the screenplay based on Dan Elish and Robert Horn’s book for the show. Smart-alecky and featuring a bevy of sorta-teens, 13 flopped on Broadway in 2008 despite kudos for the game score by Brown (Tony winner for Parade and The Bridges Of Madison County whose adaptation of Honeymoon In Vegas is Broadway-bound this season). CBS Films VP Production Mark Ross and creative exec Winnie Kemp are overseeing the project.

From Emma Stone's adorable reading for Easy A to Selena Gomez and Miley Cyrus's sweet Disney Channel auditions - these clips give a great insight into what stars were like before they really hit it big. Granted some stars, like Martin Freeman and Jim Carrey, were already well-known by the time that they made their clips and a few auditions were for roles that went to someone else, but it's still fun to watch them prepare for the roles of a lifetime.
