Finished up with her island getaway, the newly-single Hayden Panettiere touched down at LAX Airport with guy pal Darin Brooks by her side on Monday morning (March 9).
The "Heroes" starlet was returning from Hawaii, where she had attended the grand re-opening of the Royal Hawaiian Hotel and a fundraiser benefiting the Rehabilitation Hospital of the Pacific Foundation.
During Sunday's hospital charity event, Miss Panettiere reportedly had a run-in with press on-hand, as she yelled "Back up!" at photographers while making her entrance.
According to Us magazine sources, the "Heroes" hottie was then tapped on the shoulder by a female television reporter who asked, "May we talk with you, Hayden?"
None too pleased about the shoulder-tapping, Hayden barked back, "Don't you ever touch me!" before telling a group of reporters, "Oh, am I supposed to do interviews? You all make my life miserable."
