As far as films of the early aughts go, this is one of our favorites! In honor of the 15th anniversary of the Amanda Bynes– and Channing Tatum-led romantic comedy "She's the Man" on March 17, 2021, Wonderwall.com is taking a look at what the cast is up to now. Keep reading for more…
Amanda Bynes portrayed Viola Hastings, a student who attends Illyria Prep — her twin brother's boarding school — in his place in an effort to make the boys' soccer team.
As well as starring in "She's the Man" in 2006, Amanda Bynes wrapped The WB sitcom "What I Like About You." She went on to star in the films "Hairspray" and "Sydney White" and earned her last on-screen credit in 2010's "Easy A." Not long after, her personal struggles made more headlines than her career as she battled arrests, drug use and mental health issues. Since 2013, her mother has been in control of her affairs as her conservator, and in 2014, Amanda revealed that she'd been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. The former Nickelodeon star — who graduated from California's Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in 2019 — has since found love: Amanda announced her engagement to Paul Michael, whom she reportedly met in Alcoholics Anonymous, in 2020.
