Amanda Bynes has been sentenced to three years’ probation for driving on a suspended license, according to TMZ. She was also fined $300. Bynes’ lawyer appeared on her behalf to enter a plea of no contest late last week while the troubled actress continued her escapades in New York City. Bynes was charged with driving on a suspended license last fall, and her license had been suspended due to two previous hit-and-run charges that were later settled. She still faces charges from an April 2012 arrest for driving under the influence.

“Parks and Recreation” star Amy Poehler is reportedly dating comedian Nick Kroll, her first dose of romance since splitting with husband Will Arnett last September, according to Us Weekly. “She was looking for a guy like him,” a source says. “She wanted a comedian who ‘gets’ her.” Kroll and Poehler have been friends for a while, with Kroll playing a recurring role on her sitcom since 2011.

Gwyneth Paltrow is so over the Met Gala. After swearing off the annual fashion event to USA Today, the “Iron Man 3″ star clarified her stance during a lunchtime interview with Australian radio hosts Kyle and Jackie O. “Do you want me to be honest? It sucked,” Paltrow lamented. “It seems like it’s the best thing in the world. You always think, ‘Oh my God, it’s going to be so glamorous and amazing and you’re going to see all these people.’ And then you get there and it’s so hot and it’s so crowded and everyone’s pushing you.” She even took issue with the event’s punk rock theme. “I think we’re all a bit old to dress up punk,” she explained.

It turns out one of the most iconic hairstyles of the ’90s was created under the influence. Chris McMillan, longtime hairstylist to Jennifer Aniston, says he was stoned when he created “the Rachel,” Aniston’s “Friends”-era haircut that became a huge hit, according to WWD. “I’m 14 years sober, so I feel safe enough to say that,” McMillan says. There apparently aren’t any hard feelings, as Aniston and McMillan are still working together.

Jessica Alba was something of a hard-drinking, car-stealing wild child, she admits to her mother during a sit-down with Entertainment Weekly. While reminiscing about the first boy she brought home as a preteen, Alba fesses up: “We accidentally drank Wild Turkey,” she says. “How old was I with Santino? Eleven?” But that’s not the only memory Alba has of her bad behavior. “Remember when I used to steal the car and go to Jack in the Box?” she asks her mom. “We could go get food. Like, that was our activity! But I was you, know, 12.”
