"Entourage" star Adrian Grenier opens up about the "ballsy" Paris Hilton, his rebellious past, and his appreciation of paparazzi in an interview in the latest issue of Page Six magazine.
The 32-year-old actor, who was relatively unknown before starring in the 1999 flick "Drive Me Crazy" opposite TV star Melissa Joan Hart, reveals he jumped from one job to another when he dropped out of college.
He says, "I worked everywhere because I always got fired. I was rebellious. I got fired because I think they just didn't like me."
Grenier was at one time rumored to be dating paparazzi-magnet Paris Hilton. But while he admits he has a lot of respect for the heiress, he denies having a relationship with him other than a platonic one.
He says, "She's ballsy. She's learned to play with the paparazzi attention and have fun with it, and she creates little mysteries in the tabloid area. I have fun with her, but it's always been platonic. [Our relationship] wasn't sexual though I understand that sex sells."
And speaking of paparazzi, the actor is busy with his upcoming documentary about shutterbugs. He tries to defend them by saying that although they are very insistent and aggressive most of the time, they are just "trying to earn a buck in a fun way."
He adds, "Through my documentary, I've realized how insignificant all that is, because I know who I am. Take one part truth and 1,000 parts speculations and heresy, and you've got yourself a tabloid story."
