Is Amanda Bynes the greatest actress of our generation?
While many are wondering if Amanda is crazy or on drugs (she says she's not either), some are questioning whether the whole thing is just an act to get attention.
Then comes this exchange of text messages, between Amanda and a friend, Jonathan Jaxson, who you may recall tweeted about cops coming to Amanda's home.
Jonathan is also Amanda's former publicist, so there's some history there.
He also recently wrote a book...so a little free press never hurt book sales, right?
The texts, from the evening of June 13, reveal Amanda admitting that her behavior is "an act" that gained her two million followers.
Jonathan took to Twitter to share: "Sooo @AmandaBynes has told tonight that she has been "acting" this entire time on Twitter to get attention as she prepares for next movie!"
He then posted the text messages...
Amanda: "All this has been an act and you know it! I am an actress and know what I am doing"
Jonathan: "Seriously? I mean don't you know that drugs were apart of it and you may also have something mentally wrong?"
Amanda: "I got to 2 million followers and now everyone wants me. I am smart and not stupid. Everyone mentions my name. The world loves me!"
Jonathan: "Amanda you really just must watch what you say, that is my only advice. You are discriminating and have people very worried."
Amanda: "Just wait and the world will see!"
Jonathan: "Ok. Just want you to be well! I am always here..."
Jonathan tweeted: "If you send me texts telling me you are doing this all as an act, I will let the world know. Especially when sooo many have been worried!"
Jonathan also talked with The Ace & TJ Show, explaining more of Amanda's "act"--check it out:
