Why do so many child actors “lose it” as young adults? Recently, Nickelodeon’s ’90s sensation Amanda Bynes wrapped herself up in a media and police frenzy, similar to actress Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears (circa 2007).

This is a genuinely worthwhile read. Mara Wilson was always awesome, and it’s great that she seems to have grown up to be so well-adjusted.
