Adrian Grenier: I’m a Mummy’s boy
Adrian Grenier hopes Hollywood stars realise how important it is to give back.
The 38-year-old actor has reprised his role as Vince Chase for the big screen adaptation of TV show Entourage, which follows Vince and his childhood pals as they try to navigate LA.
While Vince has achieved mega stardom he didn’t forget the group he grew up with, particularly his best friend Eric, known as E, played by Kevin Connolly.
“I think it’s an extremely important lesson, because if you’re floating on top of the world you have to make sure you’re grounded, and that’s what these boys do. They keep it real for him. He’s also so generous, which is another thing. When you’re receiving so much it’s important you give back, and he gives it to all his friends. If he had to, he’d give it all away for his friends,” he told UK TV show Daybreak.
“My mother is like my E. If it doesn’t get the pass, I don’t do it.”
Adrian is pleased that even if people haven’t seen the hit TV show, they’ll be able to enjoy the movie. That said, he hopes viewers take it in the spirit it’s meant – which is as something fun and not to be replicated.
“It’s relatively accurate. Doug Ellin, the creator, did a great job in reflecting a reality, a truth, that really exists and really it’s just whittled down to all the best moments and so I just want to warn you it is a fantasy so don’t try this at home,” he laughed. “But go to the theatre and enjoy it through the characters.
“We just drop Vince and the boys into any situation and you can just pick up right there. It’s really just a fun party, it’s a fun ride, it’s a great summer movie. It’s indulgence really.”
