Adrian Grenier at BU
"This is really one of the warmest receptions we've had. I love your youthful spirit," actor Adrian Grenier told an auditorium full of BU students and alums at a Q&A after a screening of his new documentary, "Teenage Paparazzo." In the film, which the "Entourage" star also directed, Grenier befriends a teenage member of Hollywood's notorious paparazzi and in the process explores the relationship celebrities have with photographers and the media. Cambridge homeboy Matt Damon makes an appearance in the film, telling a story about one of Ben Affleck's first encounters with the paparazzi in which a shutterbug insulted Affleck's mother hoping to capture his anger on film. There's also a scene at Fenway, where Grenier interviews Henry Jenkins, professor of media studies at MIT. During the interview, the pair are interrupted by an eager fan named Dan Cutler, from Amherst, who wants a picture with Grenier. "I'm honestly embarrassed to say I didn't watch that much of the game," the actor said about his time at Fenway. We're pretty sure Grenier, who grew up in New York, was rooting for the other guys anyway. "Teenage Paparazzo" premieres Monday, Sept. 27 at 9 p.m. on HBO.
