10 – Amanda Bynes
What is it about former child stars and addiction? Giving Nickelodeon much of the credit for her early fame, Amanda Bynes became a household name after starring on the variety show All That.
Earning her own show on the network called The Amanda Show, Bynes blossomed as an actress after starring in the hit WB series What I Like About You from 2002 until 2006. With a handful of films including She’s the Man and Easy A, Bynes has since called it quits in Hollywood.
Giving the impression as one of the few former child stars who still had her head on straight, Bynes surprised the world with legal troubles that caused her to spiral out of control.
Arrested for driving under the influence in 2012 and for two alleged hit and runs, Bynes spent 2013 facing criminal charges for possession of marijuana and tampering with evidence after attempting to throw her bong out the window. Adding in a handful of other drug-related charges and reckless behavior and this former child star has definitely fallen off the deep end.
