Amanda Bynes is a former award-winning American actress, fashion designer, and singer who has an estimated net worth of $3 million.

She rose to fame as a child actor and managed to hold on to success even as an adult. She is most noted as the Nickelodeon child star in series like “The Amanda Show” and “All That” in the late 90s.

A name very prominent in the media, as well as television and movies, Amanda Bynes has lived most of her life in front of the camera, and thus, has gathered sufficient net worth. And even though she has left the acting circle, she doesn’t have an empty bank account to deal with.

She Began to Build Her Fortune With Earnings from Television Advertisement

Born as Amanda Laura Bynes on April 3, 1986, in Thousand Oaks, California, USA. The former star started her professional acting career at the mere age of seven after attending a comedy camp at the Los Angeles Laugh Factory where she was spotted by a Nickelodeon producer.

That marked the beginning of her acting career which would become the major source of her wealth but before that, Amanda made money from appearances in advertisements. Notably, she appeared in television advertisements for Buncha Crunch candies.

After a series of appearances in advertisements, she landed a role in Nickelodeon’s television series, “All That”. Alongside television, she also worked briefly on stage but after gaining a fanbase and great fame from television, the Californian-born actress decided to put her focus on television itself.

Amanda Bynes Had a Robust TV Career and It Made Her a Multi-millionaire

Bynes gained huge fame and earned a lot of money in the late 1990s and early 2000s through her role in All That (1996–2000). However, when she started her show “The Amanda Show” on Nickelodeon at the age of 13, her earnings began to skyrocket. For the above performances, she gained more chances to showcase her acting talent.

She went on to star in other TV shows such as Figure It Out (1997-1999), Blue’s Clues (1998), and What I Like About You (2002-2006). In addition to that, she played Crystal Dupree in Arli$$ (1999), Pink Robot in Crashbox (2000), a sketch player in The Drew Show (2001), and Danielle Warner in The Nightmare Room (2001).

That’s not all, she was Jamie in the 2008 television film Living Proof, voiced Taffy in Rugerts (2001-2002), and Anna in an episode of Family Guy (2008). All of these earned her significant sums that ran into several millions of dollars, even though the specifics were never disclosed to the public.

She Continued Building Her Wealth through Paychecks from Movie Roles

Amanda Bynes took her success to the next level with involvements in Hollywood movies, where she stabilized herself as a critically acclaimed and successful actress. Bynes established a solid fanbase in 2002 with her film debut in Big Fat Liar. She continued to enjoy an exhilarating and fulfilling acting career; for the next few years after 2002, Amanda became a sensation in her movies.

She starred in What a Girl Wants (2003), Love Wrecked (2005), and She’s The Man (2006). Also in 2006, she starred in a comedy based on William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. In 2007, she starred in Hairspray and Sydney White. Her role in Hairspray, which earned critical acclaim and was a commercial success, turned out to be one of the most outstanding roles she had played. She was featured on the film’s soundtrack which won a Grammy nomination.

All of these movies provided her with the opportunity to grow as an actress and with her passion, she managed to contribute a lot to the industry, for which she earned major accolades and financial rewards.

Amanda Bynes Also Made Some Money from the Fashion Industry

She appeared on the cover of Vanity Fair’s July 2003 edition and was also named one of Teen People’s “25 Hottest Stars Under 25” in 2006. What this meant was that she could explore areas of showbiz. So, it was hardly a surprise when she partnered with Steve and Barry’s to create a fashion line called Dear. With that, the actress made money from the sales of her apparel and accessories.

Since retiring from acting, Amanda Bynes has embraced fashion. She is interested in illustration and fashion design. She had also moved from Los Angeles to New York to facilitate her fashion career, which has also paid off. It is believed that it has helped her maintain her wealth currently estimated at $3 million.

The Actress Lost a Large Chunk of Her Wealth to Drugs and Legal Issues 

After shining in her career for a long time, things quickly and radically changed for Amanda Bynes. Her mishap started right after her breakthrough role in Hairspray and a few more roles in the next three years, which included a stint in Living Proof (2008) and Easy A (2010). The latter, which was a huge success, gained her more contracts that would’ve propelled her further into the spotlight.

However, the actress couldn’t just carry on, dropping out of different promising shows, and infringing different contracts she had signed. Her behavior spurred speculations that she was having a personal problem, but nobody could confirm what exactly she was going through. In June 2010, in the face of the mishaps in the final part of her career, Amanda shifted her focus towards fashion designing and declared her retirement from acting.

It happened that Amanda began using drugs long before she officially retired from acting. As a result, she hated some of her roles in movies and forgot her lines. Frustrated by this, Amanda Bynes abandoned a number of her projects and embraced her new lifestyle. She tried different hard drugs, including cocaine and eventually, Adderall.

In 2012, she got into trouble and was charged with driving under the influence in West Hollywood. Two years later, she received three-year probation after the charge was dropped. She also got into the net of authorities several times more before she got under a 72-hour mental health evaluation after she was found in front of a stranger’s home and was accused of intentionally starting a fire. In September of the same year, she was transferred from UCLA Medical Center to receive “specialized treatment in a private facility outside of Los Angeles.”

All of the above took a toll on her wealth which was once estimated at $8 million.

Her Recovery and Recent Activities

Amanda Bynes

According to Brynes’ statement in 2018, she became sober around 2013 with the help of her parents Lynn, a dental assistant and office manager, and Rick Bynes, a dentist. This seems to be one of the best decisions she has made, having previously accused her father of sexual abuse and debunking it thereafter while blaming microchips in her brain.

The same year she went sober, she enrolled in the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in 2014, but later dropped out. She is allegedly not doing drugs anymore and continues to work on her sobriety.

Recently, the child actress shared an Instagram post, providing updates on her mental health, as well as her relationship and professional life. According to her, she spent months in treatment and has been working to overcome the social anxiety that led her to drop out of fashion school. Bynes also said that she’s back on track and is doing well, with the love of her life ‘Paul Michael’ by her side. She has returned to the Fashion Institute, where she’s taking online classes and hoping to get a 4.0 GPA.

She Is Working Towards Re-introducing HerSelf to the Entertainment Industry

Reports have it that she plans to go back to acting, but for now, she’s not known to be engaged in anything that’s related to that. Amanda is rarely seen in public as it is said that she is still receiving treatment.

Nonetheless, she has been hinting at a return to the entertainment business, and she might do so as a rapper. Sometime in January 2021, she dropped a snippet of a rap track which she titled “Diamonds”.

She’s already getting offers for collaboration. Lil Uzi Vert took to Twitter to express that he’d love to work with the former Nickelodeon star. Meanwhile, Amanda is believed to be under conservatorship but she is engaged to Paul Michael.
