Sean Parker: 'Social Network' raised expectations

Perhaps Justin Timberlake played his role of billionaire Sean Parker a little too well in “The Social Network,” because the success of the film seems to have some confusing the film with real life, Parker tells the New York Post.

Timberlake's character is shown in the acclaimed film as one who parties while using cocaine, and Parker says "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."

Parker declined to comment on whether he personally uses drugs, but did say that drug use "is an individual decision that doesn't hurt others, and it's a victimless crime as long as you're not hurting yourself.” What one is left with, he says, is “collateral [reputation] damage because it is stigmatized."

Those rumors of his supposed wild ways have apparently also raised expectations for the parties he throws, some of which take place at his $20 million townhouse in NYC. “Even if I set out to throw a really small party, there's expectations about what it's going to be like,” Parker adds. “People assume it's going to be a wild, crazy thing.”

But really, Parker says, it’s the "Social Network" character's personality that bugs him more than anything.

“I take less of an issue with the depiction of drug use than I do with . . . [the depiction of my] behavior to other people,” he tells the Post.
