Remember when we all wanted to be Amanda Bynes?
It was in 2006, right when “She’s the Man” came out. She was awkward, weird and kind of a geek, but she somehow prevailed, and got Channing Tatum in the end. Basically, every tween girl’s dream.
The former Nickelodeon darling hasn’t been doing so well lately, what with multiple driving-related arrests including a DUI charge, two hit-and-run charges, and two separate charges of driving with a suspended license.
In September, TMZ reported that the actress had been dropped by her agent, publicist and lawyer, all in the space of a few weeks.
“I’m 26, a multi-millionaire, retired. Please respect my privacy,” the actress told Us Weekly after In Touch ran a less-than-flattering story about her last November listing her numerous legal troubles.
The former “What I Like About You” star debuted a new look on Sunday when she shared a picture of herself on Twitter. The picture (above), shows Bynes wearing heavy rouge, with Christina Aguilera-like curls emerging from a red beanie, and lips lined with a shade usually seen on Snooki from “Jersey Shore.”
Her new cheek piercing is also in full view.

Anne Cohen was the Forward’s deputy digital media editor. When she’s not looking for the secret Jewish history of Voodoo in New Orleans, or making lists about Ruth Bader Ginsburg , she writes for The Assimilator. She graduated from the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism with an M.S. magazine concentration in 2012.
