"The reason I've asked all magazines and blogs to stop using old photos of me is I don't look like that anymore! I had a nose job to remove skin that was like a webbing in between my eyes," she said in an extended Twitter post Sunday.
(The Ministry just paused a moment to poke around our own eyes and nose to try to figure out how "webbing" might manifest in that part of the face. While we're still perplexed, we'll take Bynes' explanation at face value. It is, of course, her face. And her former webbing. And she has, ahem, looked different lately.)
"I wasn't going to tell anyone, but I look so much prettier in my new photos that I don't want old photos used anymore!," she said. "When will they stop? I will never look like that again!"
Perhaps the "What a Girl Wants" actress, now a 27-year-old retiree, should sit for some new photos with one of the glossies? While selfies can be swell, they don't make for great cover shots, quality-wise. A sad reality, but a publishing reality nonetheless.
But whatever the mags and blogs choose to do, going under the knife has had a happy ending for Amanda. "Having surgery," Bynes said, "was the most amazing thing for my confidence!"
Now she just has to drop those 35 pounds, right?
