Like many stars, Bynes has previously endured mental health struggles under the scrutiny of the limelight, which eventually saw her enter a conservatorship which has been in place for seven years now.

The actress opened up to PAPER magazine about abusing the prescription drug Adderall, as well as those infamous tweets, which included Bynes saying she wanted rapper Drake to 'murder her vagina'.

"I'm really ashamed and embarrassed with the things I said," Bynes said in regards to the shocking tweets.

"I can't turn back time but if I could, I would. And I'm so sorry to whoever I hurt and whoever I lied about because it truly eats away at me. It makes me feel so horrible and sick to my stomach and sad.

"Everything I worked my whole life to achieve, I kind of ruined it all through Twitter. It's definitely not Twitter's fault - it's my own fault."

She also told the publication she hoped to return to acting in the future 'kind of the same way I did as a kid, which is with excitement and hope for the best.'

"I've been through the worst and came out the other end and survived it so I just feel like it's only up from here."

Speaking of her drug abuse which sent her into a 'drug-induced psychosis', Bynes aid said that around the time she starred in the movie Hairspray, she said she remembered 'reading an article in a magazine that [called Adderall] the new skinny pill and they were talking about how women were taking it to stay thin.

She added: "When I was doing Hall Pass, I remember being in the trailer and I used to chew the Adderall tablets because I thought they made me [more] high [that way].

"I remember chewing on a bunch of them and literally being scatterbrained and not being able to focus on my lines or memorise them for that matter.

"I remember seeing my image on the screen and literally tripping out and thinking my arm looked so fat because it was in the foreground or whatever and I remember rushing off set and thinking, 'Oh my god, I look so bad'."

Following treatment, Bynes went on to pursue studies in fashion at LA's prestigious FIDM fashion school and graduated in 2019.
