The Final Act?
In a surprise move, Bynes announces on Twitter she's done with acting. "Being an actress isn't as fun as it may seem," she Tweets. "I know 24 is a young age to retire but you heard it here first I've #retired." Weeks later, the actress posts on Twitter, "I've unretired," adding a link to the trailer of her new film Easy A, costarring Emma Stone and Gossip Girl's Penn Badgley.
Bynes Gets Busted
Days after her 26th birthday, Bynes collides with a police car and is arrested for driving under influence and booked at West Hollywood's Sheriff's Station. After her father claims his daughter "didn't have a single drink that night," Bynes is busted again in June. Three months later, the L.A. City Attorney's office charges the actress with two counts of hit-and-run related to separate incidents on April 10 and Aug. 4. If convicted, she faces up to a year in jail.
Bynes debuts a dramatic new look on Twitter: long curly locks, heavy makeup and cheek piercings. The photo accompanies a series of reflective thoughts, including, "Forgetting past memories," and "The best feelings are those that have no words to describe them......" In April, she takes it one step farther by shaving half her head.
Offiicers responding to a report of a disorderly person arrest Bynes for reckless endangerment at her Manhattan high-rise apartment after she throws a bong out of a window. The actress is also booked on charges of marijuana possession and tampering with evidence when she is processed at the police station, which comes following a psychiatric evaluation at Roosevelt Hospital.
