Amanda Bynes looks healthy, shows off bikini body

Amanda Bynes had a very tumultuous year in 2013, but it seems the former Nickelodeon star has recently gotten her health issues in order and is looking better than ever these days. 

The 28-year-old starlet sent out a series of bikini pics while on Spring Break from fashion school, thanking her followers for the birthday wishes they sent her way on April 3. She has reportedly been vacationing under the supervision of her parents.

Bynes publicly struggled with health issues in 2013, and she was hospitalized for a mental evaluation last spring. She later entered a rehab facility and was released after a lengthy stay. Her parents have since been caring for her and she has been spotted taking fashion design courses at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising. 

Once out of rehab, Bynes deleted her controversial tweets from last year, which included some vulgar messages she wrote about rapper Drake and nearly nude pictures. 

In April 2013, the former actress revealed she had shaved her head, but her recent photos show her blonde locks looking long once again. 

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.”
