Amanda Bynes quits acting

HollywoodNews.com: Oh darn! Amanda Bynes is retiring from acting!

While the world awaits Lindsay Lohan to resurrect herself ala Drew Barrymore, because we know greatness exists in her (seriously), show business loses Amanda Bynes.

Perhaps she’ll take up shoe cobbling like Daniel Day Lewis did when he took a respite.

The actress tweeted the news on Saturday according to Wonderwall.com.

“Being an actress isn’t as fun as it may seem. If I don’t love something anymore I stop doing it,” she wrote.

“I don’t love acting anymore so I’ve stopped doing it,” she continued. “I know 24 is a young age to retire but you heard it here first, I’ve retired.”

Bynes came off the Nickolodeon assembly line with her variety show “The Amana Show” and the drama-comedy series “What I Like About You.” She segued to teenage films in such titles as “What a Girl Wants” and “She’s the Man” to middling to low B.O. results. Though her last film was 2007’s “Sydney White” which blanked out at $12 million stateside, she hit a high in the all-star film “Hairspray” which grossed $119 million.

Bynes’ next film is the Emma Stone-Stanley Tucci comedy “Easy A” due out in September.

    I’m sorry, but giving a few decent performances in Disney flicks does not show you have the potential to become a great actress. And you forget, Drew Barrymore worked very long and hard for her comeback. Lindsay is neither working long nor hard nor is she interested in getting clean, you’ll have a long wait if you expect that.

    Amanda Bynes isn’t exactly leaving behind an illustrious career. A few teen movies (most of which bombed) and some Nickelodeon shows don’t exactly make a prominent career. Maybe she’d have more fun acting if she accepted decent roles instead of lackluster teenie romps.
