Being a DUFF isn’t a bad thing. At least I don’t think so. Every group has one. I am my groups. Let me tell you about my closest friends.
One of them is a television star. She’s got a perfect body, perfect personality.
One of them is a social media guru. She’s blonde, skinny, and funny.
One of them is a NYT best selling author. She’s hilarious and all the attention in the room draws to her.
One of them is a social media guru who spends most of her time on red carpets.
One of them is a celebrate cinematographer.
Do you need me to go on?
Me – I work in social media. I am quiet and have social anxiety. I’m not skinny and I wouldn’t say I am ugly. I am just not them. I am the person that people go, “Wow that’s your friend. Tell me about her.”
So I relate to THE DUFF trailer. I relate to people thinking that I have friended up, when the reality is I think my friends are really fucking lucky to have me. I’m loyal, I am always there for them, and I would lay down my life for them. Just as they would for me.
My friends don’t judge me as THE DUFF. They judge me as Erin. And I would hope that your friends would to. Looks don’t matter people. It’s what on the inside.
So as you hear the words “DESIGNATED UGLY FAT FRIEND” – know that you don’t have to be ugly or fat to be a DUFF. Everyone has one, and chances are you are one to someone else.
EW debuted a new trailer for The Duff – and it’s amazing. It’s not embeddable, so you have to watch it there. CLICK HERE! Or watch below.
Here’s some of the best things about being a DUFF!
1) You get to wear your PJ’s in public, and it doesn’t phase most people.
2) Hot guys consider you their friend and will offer you solid advice.
3) You are able to maintain bitchy face – never letting the mean girls see you sweat.
5) You aren’t afraid to tell the hot guy they are an idiot.
6) You can always clean yourself up – but thank God, you don’t have the mean girls shitty personality.
The DUFF hits theaters February 20th!
