Amanda Bynes 'felt overshadowed by Lohan'
Amanda Bynes reportedly became frustrated she wasn't landing the "Lindsay Lohan roles".
It has been claimed the star wasn't happy with how her career was progressing in Hollywood. A high-level agency source has come forward to reveal that Amanda was showing signs she was headed for a meltdown back in 2007. The actress had started to make a name for herself after winning small parts, but reportedly felt she deserved the roles being offered to Lindsay.
"Everybody had her as a goody-goody. She couldn't break out of that genre," the executive told The Hollywood Reporter. "Her frustration was, 'I could have played this role; I could have played that role. I'm not getting the Lindsay Lohan roles.'"
Amanda and Lindsay were born just months apart and have both hit the headlines for their unravelling personal lives over the last few years.
Amanda's family and friends have reportedly raised concerns she is suffering from mental health issues. The 26-year-old star also faces criminal charges - two counts of misdemeanour hit-and-run, driving under the influence and two counts of driving with a suspended licence. She pled not guilty to the hit-and-run violations in September.
