Amanda Bynes drastic new look, which has been praised by the Kardashian sisters and fans, isn’t as original as it may seem.
And Bynes isn’t afraid to admit that. In a rare interview with In Touch, the actress-turned-Twitter-sensation explained that she modeled her new style after famed stripper Blac Chyna.
Like Chyna, Bynes has two shiny studded cheek piercings and sports bleach blonde hair. The 27-year-old former Nickelodeon star is also often photographed wearing heavy eye makeup, just like Chyna.
On Sunday, Bynes explained why she only likes recent photos of herself, revealing she had plastic surgery.
She tweeted: “The reason I've asked all magazines and blogs to stop using old photos of me is I don't look like that anymore! I had a nose job to remove skin that was like a webbing in between my eyes. I wasn't going to tell anyone, but I look so much prettier in my new photos that I don't want old photos used anymore!”
In the past, the actress has complained about the photos some publications have published of her. She recently revealed her fixation with her image is tied to her eating disorder.
On April 17, she tweeted at a media outlet that posted a photo of her that she was not a fan of.
“...I look fat in that photo you chose, which doesn't help my eating disorder,” she said.
She also explained: “I feel pregnant when I'm fat! I'm working out constantly!”
Bynes first began acting in commercials at the age of 7 and was thrust into the limelight when she later became one of the stars of Nickelodeon’s comedy show “All That.” She then starred in Nickelodeon’s “The Amanda Show” from 1999-2002. Since then, her acting career has waned, and her last major role was in 2010’s “Easy A.” Before that she appeared in films like “What a Girl Wants” and “Hairspray.”
The starlet has said that there is “NOTHING wrong” with her and that she plans to launch a fashion line.
