Amanda Bynes has stunned fans by revealing she’s engaged.
The 28-year-old Hairspray star, who was recently arrested on DUI charges in California, has told In Touch magazine she’s planning a wedding.
Bynes, who has friends and fans worried for her wellbeing after displaying odd behavior similar to that which led to months of medical care last year, lashed out at a reporter who was bombarding her with questions in New York on Sunday, and during a rant, she stated, “I am very needy for friendship and I hate men. I want to f**k them, but I can now say I’m engaged… I want to be married and I want to be away from people.”
And discussing the couple’s family plans, she added, “I want boys, for sure. However many I can pop out. I don’t want a gorgeous girl around. Then I’d feel way jealous.”
The actress claimed her 19-year-old fiance lives in Costa Mesa, California, and works in a bait shop – and they are planning to wed at The London hotel in Los Angeles before setting up home in New York, where she enjoys “walking and riding bikes”, adding, “In California, you need to drive.”
It’s no surprise she is no longer a fan of driving – Bynes has been involved in a series of car-related misdemeanours in recent years and lost her licence in 2013. It was returned to her in April when it appeared she had turned her life around.
She tells In Touch, “I really do not enjoy driving. I don’t like the way I look in a car. The lighting is very bad.”
We think it was a little tactless for In Touch to interview a person who is clearly not in their right state of mind and exploit them for press, but the conversation definitely sheds some light on her current state of mind. Hopefully she can get the help she needs soon before it’s too late and the media doesn’t tear her down too badly before that happens.
