Back after nearly four years, the stars reveal how they're different – or the same
After eight seasons on HBO, the stars of Entourage got to know each other pretty well.
Reuniting for the big-screen version of the story, in theaters June 3, Adrian Grenier, Jeremy Piven, Kevin Connolly, Kevin Dillon, Jerry Ferrara and Emmanuelle Chriqui sat down with PEOPLE to reminisce.
So who’s matured the most since the series wrapped?
“You mean who’s aged the worst?” jokes Dillon, 49. “We’re all still very immature.”
Well, everyone aside from Piven of course, who reprises his role as super agent turned studio head Ari Gold and has only gotten better with age.
“I spent almost seven months in London shooting Mr. Selfridge [for PBS], so I’ve become a regal gentleman. I’ve finally earned some respect from my cast,” says the actor, 49, laughing.
All joking aside, Ferrara, 35, is quick to admit he’s definitely changed over the past four years.
“I was 23 when the show started. I had a lot of growing up to do in my personal life,” he explains. “I think my character [Turtle] was a late bloomer, and I think I was too. It’s still an ongoing process. It’s not even close to done.”
Meanwhile, Connolly, 41, admits he’s a touch jealous of his character Eric, and how the manager managed to settle down. “He’s grown up a little faster and better than I have. I’m aspiring to catch up and settle down.”
The cast have remained friends, but with busy lives – coming together for the film was the first time in a long time – they finally got to spend some quality time together.
“Truth is, it’s not much different than your extended family,” says Connolly. “Your intention is to stay in touch as best you can. Sometimes life gets in the way. We’re adults with our own lives.”
But, insists Piven, social media makes it easy to at least keep up with one another from afar. “These days, it’s really easy to stalk people on social media.”
