When Michael Cera throws a party, a lot of cool Hollywood wants to show up and see what's going on -- even when the People's Choice Awards have Ashton Kutcher and Carrie Underwood across town.

John C. Reilly, 'The Hangover' star Ed Helms, Jesse Metcalfe and Bob Saget came out Wednesday in Hollywood to support Cera at the L.A. premiere of his new comedy 'Youth in Revolt.' When Michael Cera throws a party, a lot of cool Hollywood wants to show up and see what's going on -- even when the People's Choice Awards have Ashton Kutcher and Carrie Underwood across town.

John C. Reilly, 'The Hangover' star Ed Helms, Jesse Metcalfe and Bob Saget came out Wednesday in Hollywood to support Cera at the L.A. premiere of his new comedy 'Youth in Revolt.'

Cera, who had freshly flown back from New York where he promoted the film on 'Late Show with David Letterman' and on the red carpet at the film's New York premiere, was inundated with pats on the back, high-fives and other hellos, as he wore a big grin most of the night.

"I am really proud," Cera told Moviefone on the Hollywood premiere's red carpet before the screening. "I hope people like it. I like it ... I'm a huge fan of the book, and I think personally we captured the spirit of it, which is really the challenge of adapting a unique, funny book. I like to think we did that successfully -- fairly successfully."

Co-stars Portia Doubleday, Justin Long, Ray Liotta, Fred Willard and Jean Smart, as well as the dog who plays Cera's "love child" Albert in the movie, also came out to party for the comedy, which hits theaters Jan. 8.

Long and Doubleday -- old-time friends -- chatted while co-stars posed for pictures, while Liotta wiped his teary eyes from the bright camera flashes.

"We're cool. I'm friends with him, he's awesome," Doubleday said of Cera, her love interest in the film. "We spent a lot of time together. I was in Michigan for over two months. We have done a lot of press together. I have been seeing him a lot."

While most bigger movie premieres are held at the bigger, 2,000-seat Grauman's Chinese Theater downstairs, 'Youth in Revolt''s screening was held upstairs in the smaller Mann Chinese 6: nice, but not Hollywood decadent.

The after-party, held at nearby Hollywood club the Green Door, was attended by Long and his on- and off-again girlfriend Drew Barrymore, Garry Shandling, Cera and Doubleday.
