"Amanda thinks it's extremely unfair that people are calling her the new Lindsay Lohan," a friend of the actress told RadarOnline.com. "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 DUIs don't face the same scrutiny that women do and that is what really irks Amanda."
Regardless, the two young actresses do seem to have quite a bit in common: a cheerful child star past, boozing and driving, enabling parents, getting fired from films, a taste for hard partying in Hollywood and a tendency to shrug off past offences.
Like Lindsay, Amanda is taking her DUI "lightly" and was spotted out partying days after her arrest.
"Amanda has been in a downward spiral for the last six months," says a friend. "It's truly sad to witness. Amanda has been told she must go to rehab but she is refusing."
Do you think Amanda will suffer the same fate as Lindsay?
