Debra Messing: I'm too famous to walk around NYC

Debra Messing said she's too famous to walk around New York City.

"I will never get my anonymity back," the actress whined to Haute Living New York. "I can't walk through Time Square, and when I go to Broadway shows, it's an issue."

Messing said she catches a break in the winter when she can hide under a scarf or hat.

"In winter, when I have a hat on, a scarf wrapped around my face, and you can’t see the color of my hair, I can walk anywhere,” she explained.

Despite her struggle, the 48-year-old braves New York City because "I feel I'm part of humanity here."

"In LA, everyone is in the same business. Here, you can’t go on a subway or walk the streets without bumping into people who are of a different race, religion or socioeconomic level. It makes me feel small in a way that feels healthy," she shared.
