Last time she appeared in court, Amanda Bynes wore a messy wig and mumbled to herself, but when as she sat in a NYC courtroom today, an eyewitness tells In Touch that the troubled star kept her mouth closed – and let her body do the talking.
Wearing a turquoise wig, the 27-year-old was very dressed-down when she arrived for a follow-up hearing on her May 23 arrest for reckless endangerment and attempted tampering with physical evidence (after allegedly throwing a bong out of her apartment window) and unlawful possession of marijuana. "Amanda wore a sweatsuit, complete with a tank top from the Alvin Ailey Dance Studio," the eyewitness says. "She almost seemed to be enjoying the crowd of people who were there to see her and at one point she actually cracked a sly smile."
Unlike last time, when she'd addressed everyone in the court, Amanda sat quietly on a bench on the third row of the courtroom beside her lawyer.
"As she waited for her name to be called, Amanda fidgeted with her wig constantly," the eyewitness says. "And then she busted out a little dance in her seat that could best be described as a body wave. She sort of rolled her left wrist, twisted her left arm, bobbed her head, then twisted her right arm and rolled her right write. Her movements were small, like she was just moving to a beat in her mind."
Last night, Amanda, who's in the middle of multiple plastic surgery procedures on her nose, Tweeted that she didn't want to have her picture taken with a broken nose, and the eyewitness says the Easy A star's nose looked swollen. "Amanda wasn't allowed to wear her sunglasses in court. And the one thing that really stood out was how bad her skin looked. It was reddish and the texture was really bad. Her eyes didn't look clear – she looked like she hadn't slept – and she was wearing huge false lashes. Her lips looked like they were a little plumper as well."
After Amanda spent about two minutes in front of the judge, her case was continued to August 26, and Amanda was order to appear in court on September 26.
