After years of being captured by cameras, Entourage star Adrian Grenier turns his lenses back on the photographers in the documentary Teenage Paparazzo.

"I was really looking to find a constructive understanding of who they are," he says.
The 34-year-old talks about why his friends weren't originally on board for the project, how the experience changed his perception of his own fame, and what he hopes people will take away from the film. Plus: What does he think about an Entourage movie?

On the dusty expanse of suburbia that is Wisteria Lane, Vanessa Williams is ready to duel at 40 paces.
