  • She's back?

    Amanda Bynes may have changed her mind about ending her Hollywood career.

    On Friday the 24-year-old actress tweeted "I've unretired." She then plugged an ad for her next flick "Easy A," due in theaters September 17. The film tells the story of a high school girl whose life parallels "The Scarlett Letter," until she finds a way to use the rumor mill to her personal advantage, according to

    It's an about-face for Bynes, who announced just a month ago her plans to retire from acting immediately.

    "Being an actress isn't as fun as it may seem," she wrote. "If I don't love something anymore, I stop doing it. I don't love acting anymore, so I've stopped doing it."

    "I know 24 is a young age to retire but you heard it here first I've #retired," she added.

    The star, who first became famous on Nickelodeon's "All That" and "The Amanda Show," lent some additional insight behind her supposed decision: "I've never written the movies and tv shows I've been a part of. I've only acted like the characters the producers or directors wanted me to play."
