Amanda Bynes is retiring from acting, according to a series of posts on her Twitter account. “Being an actress isn’t as fun as it may seem,” the 24-year-old star wrote on June 19 around 3 a.m., following with a series of similarly themed tweets: “If I don’t love something anymore, I stop doing it. I don’t love acting anymore, so I’ve stopped doing it. I know 24 is a young age to retire, but you heard it here first.” Bynes previously starred in the Nickelodeon series The Amanda Show (1999-2002) and The WB sitcom What I Like About You (2002-06), as well movies such as 2006’s She’s the Man and 2007’s Hairspray. The actress’ supposed last film will be the upcoming high school comedy Easy A, in which Bynes costars with Emma Stone and Penn Badgley. The film is scheduled to be released in theaters on Sept. 17. Her rep could not be reached for comment.
