It's an about-face for Bynes, who announced just a month ago her plans to retire from acting immediately.

"Being an actress isn't as fun as it may seem," she wrote. "If I don't love something anymore, I stop doing it. I don't love acting anymore, so I've stopped doing it."

The star -- who first became famous on Nickelodeon's All That and The Amanda Show -- lent some additional insight behind her supposed decision: "I've never written the movies and tv shows I've been a part of. I've only acted like the characters the producers or directors wanted me to play."
