Former child star Amanda Bynes has seen her career and her life derail and crash, much like that of movie star Lindsay Lohan and it seems that that is not where their connections end. Amanda and Lindsay were born just months apart and both enjoyed their fair share of success in their younger years.
However, while Lindsay’s career picked up and kicked off as she moved into adulthood, Amanda seemed to get left behind, playing the same boring roles as she did as a teenager. It appears that this led to Amanda becoming jealous of Lindsay, leaving people worried about her as far back as 2007.
An agency executive told The Hollywood Reporter, “Everybody had her as a goody-goody. She couldn't break out of that genre. Her frustration was, 'I could have played this role; I could have played that role. I'm not getting the Lindsay Lohan roles.’”
Both Lindsay Lohan and Amanda Bynes have spent plenty of time in the press in recent years for all of the wrong reasons and Amanda continues to find the going tough. Bynes continues to face criminal charges that include two counts of misdemeanour hit-and-run, driving under the influence and two counts of driving with a suspended licence.
Amanda Bynes should seriously find someone other than Lindsay Lohan to be jealous of. Not a good role model!
