So I have this actor friend and he's been in some major movies. Recently he was in a really big one.. and he gets to go to the red carpet premiere in Los Angeles.
Anyway he invited me to go and honestly.. it sounds like a blast. But I feel really insecure about the idea. I don't feel like I'm fashionable enough and I'm afraid I get really anxious and overwhelmed.
He's already told his agents and stuff I'm going with him and given them all my info and it sounds like a great experience.. but I don't want to let him down so it's a lot of pressure.
Would it be fucked up if I just let my insecurity win on this and tell him to take someone else? I know there are plenty of beautiful women in the business to go with him. Or should I suck it up and go to say I did it?

Just go mate!
How many people get invited by an 'actor' to go to a party with them filled with other celebs? I dunno cuz I don't know the anyone; you're the first I've heard of it happening too!
Firstly, I have actor friends myself and they are just as cool and awesome as anyone else!
Secondly, and this may be a bit harsh, but Celebs aren't the type of people to have higher opinions of other people. And if some of them do think that way, then that's a celebrity you shouldn't give crap about!
And lastly, (this may come off as insensitive too) why not? You're insecure? Overwhelmed? You tend to feel like that before you do oral presentations at work or school, but when you actually do them, you get the greatest high! So think of it like that, except tons better!
Enjoy your party!0

Okay look... If you don't go, I'm gna personally come kick yr ass myself. Srsly.
Two things bby.
As everyone else has already pointed out... YOLO / "how often does something like this come aroundddddd" / "holy shit what most people would do to be in yr place" / etc.
So... I think you might be nervous in part because you're thinking that this party is going to be full of smooth operators who are just SUPER gregarious and GREAT at socializing -- like, the big leagues of socializing, as it were.
Is that what you're thinking?
Because if so... ahhahhahahhahahahahahhahahah hahaha hahahha hahahaaa.
Ha hahahha hahahahhaha hahaha...
There's one thing you should realize about Hollywood RIGHT NOW, and that is this:
Hollywood is the biggest collection of socially retarded, mostly introverted, misfits ANYWHERE.
Not kidding. If you think about the kinds of people who are drawn to acting in general, this should make perfect sense -- but, if you need more evidence, just google the phrase "extroverted actors" (without the quotes). Go ahead, try it.
Even if you google THAT... you'll still get pretty much ALL hits that are either about INTROVERTED actors, or else about "So, you think actors are extroverted, huh? [... well, yr wrong!]"
Soooo yeah lol.
There is seriously NO pressure here at all. Since you aren't a star in the first place, very little attention will be directed at you. And since you'll mostly be hanging out with a bunch of social retards -- literally, *professional* social retards -- there will be even LESS attention on you.
I've been to a bunch of these things, actually. You'll see (BECAUSE YOU'RE GOING)... there are basically going to be exactly 2 kinds of people there who **actually know how to socialize**.
People in the business whose jobs actually depend on socializing/networking -- agents, producers, PA's, and other miscellaneous go-fers and personal assistants.
"Typecast" actors -- like, say, Jack Nicholson -- who have no versatility in their roles on-screen, and are literally incapable of playing any character other than, well, themselves.
Literally, these will be THE ONLY PEOPLE at this event who are not pretty much social retards. It's actually hysterical to see how everyone else conducts themselves when they're all thrown into a room together and, like, forced to socialize without a script. LOL
So, yeah. Go, have a good time, and be amused at everyone else.
I WILL kick yr ass if you don't go.0
