In the entertainment industry, where being at the right parties and nightclubs can further an actor's public image and career, having a good publicist is an asset. Publicists promote actors and actresses by getting them invited to parties and premiers and involved in charity events and social causes that will make the individual more visible and attractive to the press and the public. They may schedule radio and television interviews, press junkets, personal appearances, television and radio interviews, and photo sessions to help promote an upcoming project. They often work closely with managers, agents, image consultants, and stylists to help the actor or actress portray a certain image that is favorable to the public. At times, a publicist may be called on to "spin" or interpret a negative incident into one less career damaging.
