For celebrities, any publicity is often considered good publicity. So it’s sometimes hard to tell whether a celebrity is acting crazy for the attention or if they might actually be whacko. The following are 15 stars who may just really be crazy.
1) The “Amanda Show” was Kinda Crazy: Amanda Bynes
For a while, sweet Amanda Bynes was the poster child for the way a young actress should behave. Compared to Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton, she kept a relatively low profile and wasn’t considered a big party animal. She was also starring in a number of successful movies, including “Hairspray” and “She’s the Man.” But then the actress suddenly did a 180 and her behavior became more and more erratic.
In 2010, she announced she was giving up acting, but then changed her mind and unretired. At the time, the announcement seemed innocent enough, but it was actually the beginning of the end. Soon Bynes was making the news for a number of bizarre incidents, including donning a strange wig to attend court, throwing a bong out of a window and being arrested for DUI three times in one month. She also began tweeting weird and random comments to and at various stars, including one to Rihanna that read, “Chris brown beat you because you’re not pretty enough.”
In July 2013, the actress was involuntarily hospitalized and spent six months in an in-patient treatment facility for starting a fire in the driveway of a Thousand Oaks, California, home. Since that time, Bynes has appeared to be back on the road to recovery.
