After avoiding the public eye for several years, Amanda Bins opened her past – and her present – in the annual issue of the paper's "Beyond the Internet."
The former child star talked about her drug fight and added that she did not start celebrating until the age of 25, and never drank alcohol.
"I started smoking marijuana when I was 16," she said. "I did not get addicted [then] And I do not abuse it. And I do not go out and invite or make a fool of myself … Still.
Bins's drug use quickly accelerated to more dangerous drugs, such as Molly and Ecstasy, although she admits she only used cocaine three times and did not like it. But the only remedy she loved – and then "abused", she says – was Adele.
"[I was] Read an article in this magazine [called Adderall] "The New Thin Pill" and they talked about how women take it to stay thin. I was like, "Well, me there is To get my hands on it, "Bins confessed.
The more the actress played, the more she could focus on her lines for "Hall Pass". Bins later came down from the movie, but continued to use her Adral, which she said brought terrible feelings about her looks and abilities in "Easy A."
"I really could not stand my performance in this film and I did not like my performance, I was absolutely convinced I had to stop playing after seeing it," she said, before announcing later that she was quitting a game on Twitter at the time.
"I was tall on marijuana when I saw it but somehow it really started to affect me, I do not know if it was drug induced psychosis or what, but it affected my brain differently than it affects other people. Mine, "Bins said.
The actress, who has been sober for four years, looks back on drug use and her Twitter activity with remorse.
"I'm really embarrassed and confused by what I said, I can not go back in time, but if I can, I would … I'm very sorry for everyone I hurt and who I lied about because it really eats me, it makes me feel so bad and sick in my stomach and my sadness, The 32nd.
"Everything I've been working my whole life to accomplish, I sort of ruined it all through Twitter," she said. "It certainly is not Twitter Guilt – it's my fault. "
Bins previously made headlines over the years after she received two arrests for DUI, two hit-and-run charges and a driver's license suspended within three years. Although many have investigated the mental health of the actress, she claims she is "normal" when she is not on materials.
"During these experiments [with substances] They are a long time. I'm not sad about it and I do not miss because I really feel ashamed of how these materials made me act, "Baines said.
"When I was outside of them, I was completely back to normal and immediately realized what I had done – it was as if an alien had actually invaded my body.
Last year, Bins gave an interview for the first time in four years and talked about her drug use, her sobriety, and her desire to return to the game.
"I miss the game," she said in an interview with Holliscop's Diana Madison in 2017. "I really have something surprising to tell you: I'm going to start playing again."
Bins added, "I want to make a TV, maybe some guest spots on how I look like a fan, and maybe another TV show where I'm the star of it."
