Leslie Grossman claims Amanda Bynes is serious about getting back in the show business.
It’s been more than a year ago Amanda Bynes first declared her intention to return to the show business, and the actress’ friend and former co-star, Leslie Grossman, says that she can’t wait to start working on projects again.
Grossman recently went with Busy Students on her E! late night talk show, “Busy Tonight,” and the “American Horror Story” actress shared an update on Bynes’ journey back to stardom.
“I met her when she was 16 years old and you don’t know what you’re going to get when you meet a young star of the show, it can be a nightmare. [But] from the get go, [she was] the sweetest, the funniest, the most hard working, and just a great person,” said Grossman, who played against Bynes for four seasons at the beginning of the 2000s sitcom “What I Like.”

“That show was really a fun and good time in my life, and we had a good time to do that,” Grossman recalled fondly.
While Bynes loved tumultuous years, which included a painful and public struggle with addiction and psychological problems, the actress revealed in June 2017 that they are clean and sober and ready to return to action.
This past November, Bynes elaborated on its different forms of struggle and her desire to reclaim her life in a long and candid sit-down interview with Paper magazine, where she seemed to really come to terms and moved past many of the issues she would fight for years.

“She is doing great, she really is,” Grossman, 47, shared. “She looks stunning, and she is very excited to get back into the act, which I think they have no problem with it. I think everyone wants to see, its something to do.”
The “Popular” star said that Bynes is still “really committed to doing fashion,” that is a passion of the stars for years, and something she went to the university to study after taking a step back from her career.
Ultimately, Grossman said that they have a lot of sympathy for what Bynes had to do with her painful and personal struggles under the intense scrutiny of the public eye, and she is happy for her friend managed to turn the tide.
