AMANDA Bynes looked totally unrecognisable as she returned to social media yesterday.
The 33-year-old revealed she had joined Instagram and shared a picture of herself with long pink hair and a septum piercing.
The former child actress, who has already racked up 62k followers, told fans: “Hey guys! I’m on instagram now !”
Amanda followed the first post with a series of others including one of her graduating from the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Los Angeles over the summer.
The actress dramatically returned to the public eye by appearing on the cover of Paper magazine in November of last year and discussed her very public break down back in 2013.
Amanda opened up about her battle with addiction during the interview, revealing that she was four years sober at that point.

She confessed that her role in 2006 film She’s The Man triggered a depressive spiral.
She said: “When the movie came out and I saw it. I went into a deep depression for 4-6 months because I didn’t like how I looked when I was a boy.”
“I’ve never told anyone that,” she added, before admitting seeing herself with short hair and sideburns was “a super strange and out-of-body experience. It just really put me into a funk.”
Amanda also opened up about being diagnosed with bipolar disorder having been in and out of mental health facilities over the years.
It was previously reported that at her worst, Amanda once started a fire in her neighbour’s driveway and almost burned her dog.
Shunning the limelight, Amanda started studying at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Los Angeles.
