Like many a child star, Amanda Bynes' stay in the spotlight has been turbulent. She started off as a Nickelodeon favorite on '90s staple The Amanda Show, solidified her leading lady status in films like She's the Man and Easy A, and then weathered a prolonged and public breakdown that included numerous legal battles, a weird wig phase, and an array of bizarre tweets.

Over the last three years, she's rarely been photographed, but seems to be doing well. We also may be seeing a lot more of her soon: She's reportedly plotting a return to acting sometime this year. So, in honor of her 32nd birthday, look back at her rollercoaster rise to fame.
