Then again, these days with Bynes, the Stephen Colbert concept of "truthiness" is often the best applicable term.
The actress tweeted Monday that she is, in fact, between nose surgeries, although there's not yet any photographic evidence.
The former actress first admitted to having had a previous nose job in early May, tweeting, "The reason I've asked all magazines and blogs to stop using old photos of me is I don't look like that anymore. I had a nose job to remove skin that was like a webbing in between my eyes … I wasn't going to tell anyone, but I look so much prettier in my new photos that I don't want old photos used anymore. I will never look like that again! Having surgery was the most amazing thing for my confidence."
Then, in early June she said, "My dad is as ugly as RuPaul! So thankful I look nothing like you both! I had nose surgery after my mug shots so my nose and I are gorgeous." (We have a feeling she wouldn't make it very far on "RuPaul's Drag Race.")
The New York Post's Page Six reported on Monday that Bynes was seen in Atlantic City over the weekend lashing out at a man who tried to snap a picture of her. She reportedly chased Bobby Cohen, 56, around the lobby of casino Revel, demanding that he hand over his iPhone.
Cohen's son, Brett, 22, tells the Post, "She ran into the lobby alone looking totally frazzled with a load of shopping bags and a bag to carry a dog. She tried to get into the elevator, but then came out again, so my dad thought he’d try and take a picture. Amanda saw him and lunged at Dad trying to grab the phone, saying, 'Sir, you can’t take a picture of me, give me the phone.' She kept saying it over and over again until she was screaming. My dad tried to walk away slowly, but she started following him, chasing him around the lobby, saying, 'I need to see your phone now,' she wanted to grab his phone and delete the picture. Finally, security stepped in and we managed to get away from her."
More and more signs seem to be pointing to the fact that Bynes could be more in control of her mental faculties than her tweets suggest. Last week, her former Nickelodeon co-star Drake Bell said that she's good and healthy, even going so far as to compare her to a comedic icon. "The closest to Carol Burnett in our generation is Amanda Bynes," Bell told OK! magazine.
And last Friday, Bynes's reported former publicist, Jonathan Jaxson, claimed that Bynes texted him insisting that her bizarre behavior is all just an act.
