New York native Adrian Grenier is best known for his turn as Vincent Chase on HBO's hit series Entourage. Many will remember him as Anne Hathaway's boyfriend in critically acclaimed The Devil Wears Prada. Many of us don't know though that Grenier is also a Director and that his Teenage Paparazzo was very well-received at Sundance Film Festival earlier this year.
The Documentary centers around the theme of Celebrity Obsession in youth, following the story of then-13 year-old Paparazzo Austin Visschedyk, who has photographed everyone from Paris Hilton to Adam Sandler. Grenier discovered Visschedyk trying to snap his photo and became fascinated by his story, then following him around at work.
Grenier unleashed his project at Isabel Bader Theatre in Toronto tonight, preceded by Appetizers and Cocktails and followed by a Q&A session at $30 a head - not bad for a chance to meet and greet the star. Sporting a fresh Coif, Grenier stood in the Foyer of the theatre after the show, as audience members lined-up for their Photo Ops. I was spotted even by a couple Mr. Will-W.:Pop Maven readers just standing around (Hi, Chris and Dave!).
Teenage Paparazzo will released via Mongrel Media in Canada and opens on August 27, 2010.
Look this weekend for a review of the film here. But in the meantime, check out these Candids I got of Grenier, who really needed that Stella after a long day of Press:
