Amanda Bynes is Hiding Out in NYC

Posted Sunday September 30, 2012 3:26 PM GMT

Amanda Bynes learned the hard way that she cannot escape the curious eye of the paparazzi, even after fleeing Los Angeles for the Big Apple.

The troubled actress was caught out and about on the city streets of NYC on Saturday (September 29). Wearing a gray top, black-and-white jacket, black leggings, and boots, she carried a grocery bag above her head to try and hide her face while chatting on the phone.

On Wednesday, the "She's the Man" star visited the Little Cupcake Bake Shop in New York City, and reportedly locked herself in the bathroom for two hours.

After an off-duty firefighter knocked on the door to try and use the restroom, Amanda failed to respond. The firefighter contacted police for permission to kick in the door, when the 26-year-old calmly exited, telling him she had been putting on makeup.
