Since HBO's "Entourage" ended, actor Adrian Grenier says he has "changed from being Vinny Chase the celebrity to Adrian the therapist," offering a shoulder for fans over the demise of the series.
"I have to console so many people on the street," he told CNN. "I mean grown men practically in tears now wondering what they're going to do now on Sunday nights. So it's a lot of huggin' it out."
The actor has plenty of time on his hands now for projects like the site SHFT.com, which he co-founded. The website encourages people to live sustainable lives, offering a holistic view of sustainability, with everything from architecture to travel.
"I think all sustainable living starts with a change in the way you look at the world, the way you see the world, the way you appreciate the world," Grenier said. "So for us it has to be aspirational and exciting and beautiful and embedded in art and culture and things that inspire us first and foremost for so long."
Grenier is still acting, and says Rihanna is on his dream list of folks he'd like to work with. It seems he has a bit of a crush on the singer.
"Who doesn't?" he said. "Come on."
