Jennie Garth tried reaching out to her former TV co-star Amanda Bynes after her legal troubles hit the headlines, but the actress was left disappointed when she didn't receive a response from the former child star.

Garth played Bynes' onscreen sister in sitcom What I Like About You for four years between 2002 and 2006, and admits she tried to get in touch with the Hairspray star after a series of driving offences and rumors of personal problems.

However, Garth hasn't been able to get through to Bynes to offer her support.

She tells Usmagazine.com, "I tried reaching out to her and I haven't been able to reach her. My heart feels for whatever she is going through and I love her dearly."

Bynes has been dogged by a number of driving offenses in recent months, including a DUI charge and two counts of hit-and-run, and she also entered not guilty pleas to two counts of driving on a suspended license on Monday.
