Amanda Bynes’ recent behavior keeps getting more peculiar, but friend and Hairspray co-star Nikki Blonsky tells Life & Style there is no need for concern. “She’s the same Amanda I met working on Hairspray,” the actress, who co-starred with Amanda in the 2007 flick, tells Life & Style, on newsstands now. Nikki says of her pal’s head-turning antics, “She’s happy. I don’t think that’s a breakdown, but a breakthrough. I back Amanda 100 percent.” While her increasingly erratic behavior has been a media spectacle, Nikki, who claims she speaks with Amanda “very frequently,” sees beyond her friend’s strange acts. “I don’t think there is any concern on anybody’s part,” Nikki tells the mag. “She is just living her life and doing what she wants to do and I totally support that for her.” PHOTO: Amanda Bynes Explains "Nadia"And though Amanda has had a turbulent year with a DUI arrest and disturbing Twitter rants, Nikki’s take on the ever-changing starlet is pretty positive.
She shares, “I think it was more like an episode of events that maybe people are finding her different for, because she has been so cookie-cutter and so perfect over the years.” For more on Amanda, pick up this week’s issue of Life & Style, on newsstands now.
