Amanda Bynes Retires from Acting

Amanda Bynes Says She's Retiring — Will You Miss Her?

Just the other day my friend and I were talking about how we've been missing Amanda Bynes in movies lately. She had just seen She's the Man, and we were commenting on her spot-on comedic timing. Well, too bad for us, because now comes word that Bynes is leaving acting for good — the actress took to her Twitter account over the weekend to announce that she's retired.

The news has me thinking back to her days on The Amanda Show or her "Ask Ashley" segment on All That (if you haven't seen either, go here and here). Sure, she was a bit over-the-top, but she was totally a little SNL comedienne in the making. If her recent tweet is to be believed, the last we may be seeing of Bynes is September's Easy A. I know she hasn't exactly been churning out movies, but I'm a bit disappointed none the less. How about you?
