Actress Julia Stiles refuses to party at Hollywood hotspots with celebrities like Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton, because she's convinced the paparazzi attention would derail her career.
The Bourne Supremacy star, 26, insists she's more interested in focusing on her acting than earning a reputation for bad behaviour.
She says, "Without passing judgement on other people, I think that it's a choice that you make.
"They're getting such a mixed message for the attention they get for doing silly and sometimes reckless things. I just know it inevitably backfires.
"I don't want to be known and appreciated for that; I'd rather be appreciated for my work. If it means I'm on the cover of a tabloid magazine, then that's great."
