Amanda Bynes: “I Have an Eating Disorder So I Have a Hard Time Staying Thin”
Amanda Bynes recently wrote that, when you're in love, only one person's opinion of you matters. So maybe that's a sign that she's not in love. (Sorry, Drake?) After that tweet, she got upset about magazines and blogs posting unflattering photos of her.
This isn't the first time she's lashed out at the media, while also tweeting the kind of things she knows the media will pick up, but she also shared some body image sensitivities that suggest the photos hit a raw nerve: "I'm suing certain blogs and magazines saying I have a mental illness! They take pictures anytime I've gained weight then write a fake story! ... I have an eating disorder so I have a hard time staying thin. ... They write a news article about every tweet I write and I hate the pictures they choose. They repeat what I tweet then add a bad photo. ... Only use photos from my twitter when writing an article about me. ... I don't read articles written about me unless I give an interview for a magazine. They're fake! Don't trust what u read on sites!"
So she doesn't read the stories but she knows they're fake and hates the photos? How can she do both? (If she's really worried about fake stuff, she should at least get her Twitter account verified.)
Amanda recently told Us Weekly she was 121 pounds, having just lost 4 pounds, and her goal — at 5'8" tall — was to be 100 pounds. Whatever else is going on with the 27-year-old former Nickelodeon star, she's always been a beautiful girl, so hopefully she can learn to be confident about who she already is, without feeling the need to chase down any photos she doesn't like. We all end up with a few cringe-worthy photos on the Internet — it's part of life in the 21st century!
