Just because Amanda Bynes has been arrested for a DUI and has been becoming a staple on the Hollywood club scene, she is telling friends that she shouldn't be compared to wayward actress, Lindsay Lohan, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Bynes was arrested in the early morning hours of April 6 after she hit a police car. She was arrested and remains free on bail, pending her first court hearing.
"Amanda thinks its extremely unfair that people are calling her the new Lindsay Lohan," a source close to the actress tells RadarOnline.com exclusively. "Comparisons between the two are just ridiculous as Amanda has never been arrested for drug possession or for stealing anything. Yes, she got arrested for a DUI, but that doesn't mean that she is headed down the same road as Lindsay. Amanda doesn't harbor any negative feelings towards Lindsay, she doesn't even know her, she just thinks it's sexist that the two are being compared. Men in Hollywood that get arrested for DUI's don't face the same scrutiny that women do and that is what really irks Amanda. She isn't taking the DUI arrest lightly."
However, Amanda's friends are urging the actress to go to rehab, but she is refusing. "Amanda has been in a downward spiral for the last six months. Even though her dad publicly said she doesn't drink he knows she has a problem. It's truly sad to witness. Amanda has been told she must go to rehab but she is refusing," the insider revealed.
