Since being portrayed as a hard-partying tech playboy by Justin Timberlake in the Social Network, it has become impossible for Napster founder Sean Parker to have a party that is not a crazy blowout because of his new reputation. He tells the Post:
There's a certain pressure from the press and even from the people I meet to live up to that reputation that's been created by the film… Even if I set out to throw a really small party, there's expectations about what it's going to be like. People assume it's going to be a wild, crazy thing.
This guy is really taking the Social Network more seriously than just about anyone who saw it! Someone should tell him that it was only very loosely based on reality. [NYP, photo of Parker and his fiancee via Getty]
