Amanda Bynes: The New Lindsay Lohan?

Now that Lindsay Lohan has cleaned up her act, a new contender has emerged for the title of Hollywood bad girl. Ladies and gentlemen, meet Amanda Bynes.

After Amanda’s bloated mug shot was released last week, it harkened back to Lindsay Lohan 2007. And indeed, these two have a plenty in common, aside from that mug shot.

Like Lindsay, Amanda got her start in Hollywood at a young age. At the age of seven, she appeared in a television ad for Buncha Crunch candies.

She also became a regular cast member on Nickelodeon’s ‘Figure It Out’ and ‘All That.’ She even had her own sketch comedy show, The Amanda Show, which aired from 1999-2002.

Also like Lindsay, Amanda has gotten away with a lot of bad behavior. After being released for her DUI, Amanda went back to the Standard Hotel’s bar—where she had been partying just hours before.

And before the whole DUI incident, Amanda was pulled over for talking on her cell phone. As she was being issued a ticket, she sped off and later Tweeted: “Live fast die young bad girls do it well !”

That is so Lindsay circa 2009.

Amanda has also posed in her underwear for a mag. In 2010, Amanda posed for Maxim. It’s gonna take a few more mug shots and a stint at Cirque Lodge rehab, but ‘Playboy’ is just around the corner.

Ironically, back in 2007, Amanda was asked how she keeps her head on straight. At the time, she said: “I have fun being with my family and my friends. And I don’t need to be out at the clubs that all of the other actors and people are at.”

When asked what would happen if Lindsay moved into the Bynes household, Amanda joked: “I don’t know what would happen, but it would be fun. It should definitely be some sort of reality show.”
