After a series of incidents, including two hit-and-run charges and two DUI arrests, Bynes has worked to get her act together, saying, “I hike, I go spinning -- take spinning classes -- and I feed the homeless.”

Bynes also revealed that she’s been attending the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising, learning to sew and hopes to “start a clothing line in the future.”

"I am really loving school," Bynes wrote on Twitter last year, "and I feel that I am learning a lot. I enjoy all of my classes and my teachers are excellent."

The 31-year-old actress also told Hollyscoop that she plans to get back into acting by doing “maybe a few guest spots on some shows that I’m a fan of and maybe another TV show where I’m the star of it.”
