‘Don’t be the first one on the dance floor,’ Zac Efron tells MTV News.

New Year’s Eve is a night of celebration with family and friends, but it can also be one of the most-stressful nights of the year. Tough questions must be answered about what to do and what to wear in order to have a memorable end to the year.
Well, we at MTV News can’t give you those answers, but with help from the stars of this year’s box office hit “New Year’s Eve,” we can tell you what not to do in order to avoid disaster as you ring in 2012.
“[Don’t] plan an important evening,” Jessica Biel told us at the New York City premiere of “New Year’s Eve.” “Don’t do that, because it’s too much pressure. If you’re planning on having the best night of the year, you will have the worst night of the year. Do nothing, and then see what happens.”
And it seems like co-star Abigail Breslin agrees that you can’t plan to have the perfect night. “[Don’t] put too much pressure on it; just let things happen, kind of like fate,” Breslin said. “Just let things go how they’re meant to go.”
Director Garry Marshall has some advice for all those girls who are waiting for their New Year’s kiss: “Don’t wear a lot of lipstick, because with a little luck, they’re gonna kiss you, and you may kiss more than one guy!” Marshall said, laughing.
If your plans entail heading out on the town, make sure you take Zac Efron’s advice before you bust out those dance moves. “Don’t be the first one on the dance floor — wait,” Efron said. “Let two people get out there, and then go get a circle going, then get it going, pop it out, Michael Jackson moves.”
Still haven’t figured out your New Year’s plans? Check out MTV’s “NYE in NYC 2012” airing live at 11 p.m. ET/PT (10 Central) Saturday from Times Square. The event will be hosted by Demi Lovato and Tyler Posey with performances by Mac Miller, Selena Gomez, J. Cole and Jason Derülo.
