Adrian Grenier: I wish I was Vince
Adrian Grenier shares Entourage fans’ fantasies about being Vincent Chase.
The 38-year-old is best known for playing Vincent Chase in the hit HBO series, which will soon have its big screen debut. The highly anticipated film version has put the spotlight back on Adrian and his alter ego, and its reminded him of how different they both are.
“It’s funny because what people don’t know is I too wish that I was Vince,” he confessed to Page Six. “I’m not, I play the character. At the end of the day, I go home and I’m me. I share that fantasy as well [with other guys] — have a lifestyle with no consequences? Sounds great!”
Entourage also stars Jeremy Piven, Kevin Connolly, Jerry Ferrara and Kevin Dillon. While the guys are all glad to be back together, Adrian admitted the fame that the show has brought can sometimes be a little bit tricky.
“Fans can sometimes lose themselves and lose sight of the fact that we’re in public or the situation might be awkward,” he said about encountering crazed and overzealous fans. “I’ve been using the bathroom, the urinal, and fans have come up to me and literally wanted to hug it out in that moment. And I’m like, ‘Are you out of your mind? Can you give me a second? OK, cool. Thanks!’”
Adrian has relished the challenge to get back under Vince’s skin, after the series originally ended in 2011. The movie has given the star a chance to grow, and that’s something that really matters to him.
“It’s important to keep an eye on what’s important and always looking to find ways to nourish your spirit and mind and to challenge yourself,” he added.
