After returning to the spotlight with the launch of her new podcast just six days ago, Amanda Bynes has "taken a pause".
The actor had an understandably difficult decade in the spotlight, after starring Nickelodeon's The Amanda Show and several other film and TV projects before retiring from acting after Easy A in 2010.
From there, Bynes went on a downward spiral that tragically played out in front of the entire world on social media and through the tabloids.
Last week, the actor returned to the spotlight after 13 years for her next project: a podcast. However, after just one episode, she's decided not to continue on with the show.
Listen to this episode of Extraordinary Stories that explains what happened to Amanda Bynes. Post continues after audio.
Bynes announced her retirement from acting after Easy A premiered, tweeting: "Being an actress isn't as fun as it may seem.
"If I don't love something anymore, I stop doing it... I know 24 is a young age to retire, but you've heard it here first — I've retired."
She later told Paper Magazine her decision to step back from the spotlight ultimately came down to insecurity.
"I literally couldn’t stand my appearance in that movie and I didn’t like my performance," Bynes explained in 2018.
"I was absolutely convinced I needed to stop acting after seeing it," she continued. "I was high on marijuana when I saw that but for some reason, it really started to affect me... I was convinced that I should never be on camera again and I officially retired on Twitter, which was, you know, also stupid."
