Amanda Bynes has had some recent troubles that don't seem to end. Now she's decided to speak out and defend herself.

"I am doing amazing," the 26-year-old actress told People in relation to her antics that have made headlines and run-ins with the authorities.

Her acting career seems to be over by her own choice - with her having said multiple times that she's done with Hollywood.

"I am retired as an actor. I am moving to New York to launch my career. I am going to do a fashion line," she told People magazine.

In 2010, Bynes first announced that she was done with Hollywood when she tweeted: "Being an actress isn't as fun as it may seem... 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."

Her last role was in the 2010 feature film "Easy A" when she starred alongside Emma Stone.

She also remarked on her alleged DUI incident where she claims that she was not drunk as she doesn't drink.

"I am not talking about being arrested for DUI because I don't drink, and I don't drink and drive," she continued. "It is all false."

On September 17, Access Hollywood reported that Bynes was stopped by police and cited for driving with a suspended license. The incident happened on Sunday near the Bob Hope Airport, in Burbank, California. The actress was issued a citation and her car was impounded, but she was not arrested for driving with a suspended license.

Bynes' driving privileges were suspended after she was charged with hit-and-run in connection with two other traffic crashes in April and August. During the first alleged hit-and-run incident in April, she was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving and pleaded not guilty.

TMZ reported that on Tuesday night Bynes was kicked out of a gym in Hollywood for bizarre behavior leading many to continue to worry about her health.
