"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."

"I know 24 is a young age to retire but you heard it here first I've #retired," she added.

Bynes -- whose latest film, Easy A, hits theaters this fall -- added, "I've never written the movies & tv shows I've been a part of. I've only acted like the characters the producers or directors wanted me to play."

Just last Tuesday, she Twittered that her idols are "Marilyn Monroe (RIP) and Angelina Jolie."
