After staying predominantly out of the limelight for over a decade, Amanda Bynes, the star of She’s the Man, is making a comeback in the entertainment industry with a new role. Fans have observed a change in her appearance since her heyday, but Amanda has a valid explanation for the transformation.

Amanda Bynes reentered the entertainment scene with a fresh venture as a podcast host. Following an extended hiatus from the spotlight, the actress introduced Amanda Bynes & Paul Sieminski: The Podcast. This series, available in both audio and video formats, marks her first on-camera project since her role in the 2010 comedy film Easy A.

In the first episode, she has a discussion with a tattoo artist, exploring Amanda’s decision to get a heart tattoo on her face—a choice that caught fans by surprise in 2019.

‘Nobody cares anymore if people have face tattoos. It shouldn’t matter,’ Amanda shared.

She remained out of the spotlight for more than ten years.

The actress rose to fame in the 1990s and early 2000s with her show, The Amanda Bynes Show, followed by notable roles in films like She’s the Man and the musical Hairspray.

For more than ten years, Amanda largely retreated from public attention and disclosed little about her personal life amid challenges. Instead, she shifted her focus to endeavors beyond Hollywood, completing an associate’s degree at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in 2019.

Amanda commented on the reasons behind her altered look since that time.

After her comeback, numerous fans observed changes in her appearance. Amanda chose to address this and revealed that she underwent cosmetic surgery on her face.

Bynes disclosed that she had undergone blepharoplasty, a procedure aimed at removing skin around the eyelids, commonly known as an eye lift. “I was never open about this before, but I actually had blepharoplasty surgery on the skin folds and the corner of my eyes,” Bynes shared.

The actress conveyed that the surgery had a significant impact on her self-esteem. “It was one of the best things I could’ve ever done for my self-confidence, and it made me feel a lot better in my skin, so I just wanted to post about that just to clear up that rumor as to why I have a new look,” she confessed. “I feel a lot better now about myself, and I’m so glad I had the blepharoplasty surgery. It was one of the greatest things I could’ve ever done.”

Despite the changes in appearance, we are thrilled that our childhood idol is back in the spotlight. By the way, shortly before this, fans were fervently discussing Jennifer Lawrence’s “altered” appearance.
