You’ve been deemed hot enough to pass through the velvet ropes, and you’ve even made it into the VIP room. Now what do you do?
Step 1: Be cool Be cool. As US Weekly likes to say, 'celebrities are just like us!' Wealthier, prettier, and more popular, to be sure, but human beings nonetheless. So refrain from gawking, giggling, staring, stalking, whispering, pointing, and frantic texting.
Step 2: Put the camera phone away Put the camera phone away. Flashing a camera in someone’s face is not the way to win friends.
TIP: For Pete’s sake, don’t cry. You won’t just look silly—you’ll look unstable.
Step 3: Stay away from clichés Stay away from clichés like, 'I’m your biggest fan,' 'I love your movies,' and 'You’re my idol.' Unless you want to be completely unoriginal.
Step 4: Don’t talk business Keep the conversation off Hollywood. Don’t blather on about your screenplay, ask for advice about breaking into the business, or—God forbid—launch into a Hamlet monologue.
Step 5: Stay sober Drink in moderation. Nothing is less attractive than a drunken nobody falling down stairs and yelling obscenities at inanimate objects. Nothing—except for a drunken nobody being forcibly removed by club security.
Step 6: Just say no Just say no to D-list celebrities. If you find yourself tempted by former child actors or WWE personalities, you’ve no doubt ignored the previous step, and have had too much to drink. Go home now—or hate yourself in the morning.
