Personal quotes

"The first time I got the script, it said The Amanda Show on it. "I thought they were kidding. I'm still little Amanda, and to be getting my own show, it's like, oh, my gosh!" - at age 13

"
It was my first season of All That. Kenan Thompson and I were playing ping-pong in this scene, and we were supposed to collide heads. As we were falling down, I hit myself in the lip with the paddle. I looked down and saw a puddle of blood, and I had to be rushed to the studio hospital with a swollen lip. My friend was like, 'Don't worry, Amanda. It doesn't look too bad you know, thousands of women pay for collagen injections to have their lips that big."

"
I'm the type of person who believes that everything happens for a reason, and at the time that it's supposed to. So now ... other ideas are coming up for other movies and everything is just happening really wonderfully."

"
People don't recognize I'm getting older. They see reruns of "All That" so they assume I'm ten years old. I'm 16. I'm almost 5' 8". I'm driving now."

"I'm a positive person. People should find happiness in the little things, like family."

"The great thing about Amanda is that she doesn't have a Hollywood attitude.She does her thing on camera, and when she's done she comes home and she's just an ordinary kid." - Tom Bynes (brother)

"I think my parents are a big part of that because I'm still a normal kid. Like there are times I get frustrated because I want to wear certain shoes and they don't want me to wear them. It's all good in the end because I realize that there will be a time and place for high shoes."
