Amanda Bynes Has Retired From “Acting”

I am sorry to begin the day, and the week, with such INTENSE and SHOCKING news, but Amanda Bynes (Arli$$, Rugrats) has “retired” from “acting.” Whuuuuuut?! But she was so good at acting! Probably! In whatever it was that she was in! Also, I didn’t know that you could retire at the age of 24 from a thing that many people don’t even know you do! Anyway, she did it, and she did it as one does, over Twitter (via Dlisted):

I’ve never written the movies & tv shows I’ve been apart of I’ve only acted like the characters the producers or directors wanted me to play

I don’t think I’ve ever actually seen anything that Amanda Bynes has been in, because no perverto, but now I probably never will, since I’m sure her entire back catalog is now “Long Wait” on Netflix. You know, out of respect. Amanda Bynes: living legend. Oh, and since you’re probably sitting down at this point, I might as well also use this time to let you know that over the weekend, TORI SPELLING ‘WOLFED DOWN’ A PIZZA!
