Amanda Bynes has been in the spotlight since the age of seven, and now, at 22, she is one of the few child stars who has avoided rehab and the troubles that normally plague children of show business. Fresh faced and looking ferocious in an animal print dress on the cover of Cosmopolitan, Amanda dishes on marriage, dating, and her unlikely friendship with celebrity blogger Perez Hilton.
On her friendship with Perez Hilton:
“I don’t have a lot of friends who are actresses. They’re catty, and they’ll cut you down. I like that Perez is proud of who he is and doesn’t care what anybody thinks.”
On the idea of marriage:
“I say I never want to get married. I feel trapped with the idea of marriage. How can you really be with somebody forever? I’d get bored! As I get older, I don’t settle. I’d rather tell somebody ‘This is what I want–take it or leave it.'”
On dating actors:
“Obviously, Chace Crawford is gorgeous, but I wouldn’t want to date him. He’s too pretty. Maybe he’s a smart guy and maybe he’s my soul mate [laughs], but that’s not the type I go for.” [Source, Photo: Cosmopolitan]
