May 23 (UPI) -- Amanda Bynes tried to pull the 21st century version of the celebrity "Don't you know who I am?" while boarding a flight at Teterboro Airport over the weekend.

The pilot, who was checking passenger identifications in the tiny terminal, refused to allow Bynes onto the private flight to Los Angeles when she failed to pony up proper ID.

Bynes had her license suspended after a slew of driving incidents, and was put on three years probation earlier this month when she was caught driving without it.

Sources told TMZ that when the pilot told Bynes she couldn't fly without official identification, she threw a fit.

"I'm Amanda Bynes!" she reportedly screamed at the pilot, ordering him to look her up on Google as proof.

The pilot indulged her, calling a representative from the jet company to see if an exception could be made, but the rep wouldn't budge.

Bynes may not be all that recognizable these days: besides new and drastic hairstyles and a cheek piercing, the actress also recently revealed she had a nose job.
