It's all just so sad!!!
Like heavyweight boxers trading vicious blows, Lindsay Lohan & Amanda Bynes have gone toe-to-toe against each other recently in an EPIC bout to determine which former young celeb is capable of having the biggest, scariest, and most public meltdown!!
Sadly, this contest has no winners!
LiLo and 'Manda may be grown-ass women now, but their troubles began back when they were still child actresses!
Mara Wilson, known once as the adorable little chubby-cheeked girl from Matilda, Miracle on 34th Street, and Mrs. Doubtfire, argues it might not even be their fault!
In a compelling piece published today, the former-child star lists the varied pitfalls young starlets encounter when making it big!!
From bad parenting, to zero discipline, to tons of disposable cash, it's not always easy being young, pretty, and famous!
Mara — who never once went to rehab and never once got arrested for throwing a bong out her vehicle window — had advice for Lindz in particular.
"If I were to talk to Lindsay Lohan, I'd encourage her to get the hell out of acting and into something soothing. Take up botany or something. But she wouldn't be likely to listen to me — and not only because I'm younger and way less hot than her. It's because she's been acting all her life, she has little education, and in her mind, there's nothing else she could do. She's likely to keep doing it even if she's making herself — and maybe also the people she works with — miserable."
Hmm. We aren't sure the Scary Movie 5 star will try her
hand green-thumb at botany any time soon, but we get your point!
Do U think the world has judged these fallen starlets too harshly?!
