We’re used to seeing her as Eric’s (played by Kevin Connolly) glamour-puss girlfriend Sloane on Entourage, but Emmanuelle Chriqui is working a more down-to-earth look in her new ad for Reebok’s new ‘Run Easy’ campaign. And how did the normally glammed-up star come to be in the ads? Turns out that Emmanuelle was co-star and French soccer mega-star Thierry Henry’s top choice because she is one of his favorite actresses. And it turns out that Chirqui is also a dedicated runner, so the fit was natural to her. “The concept is great,” says Chriqui of the global movement which promotes the concept that running doesn’t always have to be hard-core. “To me, run easy means to move and be active, run, walk, skip around, dance and have fun.” The commercial debuted on Thursday, and we’re definitely excited to be seeing even more of Chriqui when Entourage returns this Sunday.
