Amanda Bynes Defended By Former Co-Star

Amanda Bynes' Hairspray co-star Nikki Blonsky says the actress' recent erratic antics are not cause for alarm.

Amanda Bynes' Hairspray co-star Nikki Blonsky insists the actress is fine.

While Amanda, 27, has worried friends and family with her increasingly erratic outbursts, Nikki, who worked on Hairspray with Amanda, doesn't think there is any cause for concern.

She told Life & Style magazine: "She's the same Amanda I met working on Hairspray. She's happy. I don't think that's a breakdown, but a breakthrough. I back Amanda 100%. I don't think there is any concern on anybody's part. She is just living her life and doing what she wants to do and I totally support that for her. I think it was more like an episode of events that maybe people are finding her different for, because she has been so cookie-cutter and so perfect over the years."

Amanda has caused concern with her bizarre antics and recent run-ins with the law and although she has blasted bloggers including Perez Hilton for reporting on her troubles, he recently sent his best wishes to his former pal.

He said: "Amanda and I were real life friends in the past. Other former friends of hers and I have tried to help—repeatedly—for a long time. Unfortunately she has not been open to that. I hope she gets better and works through her issues, sooner than later."
