The Berlinale 2017 Diaries: The Bare Essentials - Food, Fun and Films
Huffington Post - 8 days
Taxis in Berlin always turn out to be a cinematic experience. First of all the city is breathtaking, taking on several completely different looks -- silvery and smoky during the day, while at night it turns into a grand dame of elegance, with its iconic landmarks gilded and all lit up. Plus, the drivers here have quirky taste in music, and always play the radio at a low enough volume to make it a subtle soundtrack for the ride, but high enough that you can silently sing along with the lyrics. Yes, I do mean sing along, because aside from that stray Bach or Brahms sonata played by the more intellectual ones, the tunes I've heard here while traveling across town range from Men at Work's "Down Under", to "Up Where We Belong" from An Officer and a Gentleman, with a bit of Turkish melodies thrown in. It's so wonderfully relaxing that at times I wonder how I would have turned out if my grandfather hadn't been forced to leave Germany before WWII and I'd been born, perhaps, in Berlin. ...

What Do A Band-Aid, Plastic Bag, And Balloon Have In Common? I Saw All Three In My 3.3km Swim Across The Strait Of Messina
Huffington Post - 5 months
Photo by William Winram + Lukas Lukas Müller Just a few short months ago on World Oceans Day, Sir Richard Branson challenged me to swim 3.3km in open water across the Strait of Messina to raise awareness for the health of our ocean. Though I am an avid scuba diver, before World Ocean Day I had never swam long distances in open water and was unsure of my ability to complete this public challenge. But on behalf of the Lonely Whale Foundation and our ocean, I accepted. My journey to train for the swim took me to oceans, lakes, and streams across the globe, exposing me to the dire ocean health issues that are in our hands to solve. From Biloxi Mississippi, one of the world's largest dead zones, to the Port of Singapore, the world's second largest, I've experienced first hand how the lack of connection to our oceans has impeded our ability to care for them. So this morning when I arrived at the Strait of Messina, mythicized in the Odyssey for its treacherous waters, I was inspi ...

Why Should We Care About the Ocean?
Huffington Post - 9 months
Why do I care about the ocean? My home, Necker Island, is surrounded by the most beautiful blue seas full of weird and wonderful wildlife. It really is as nature should be ­- thriving and healthy. But unfortunately, there are other parts of the ocean that are not in such a good state. It's just terrifying when you read some of the facts: We're fishing out the ocean at a rate that will leave nothing for our children, and their children; we're choking it with plastic and other pollution; the ocean is getting hotter and more acidic, and having all sorts of nasty knock-on effects such as coral bleaching. We still see mindless and cruel activities - such as the mass killing of sharks for soup or unnecessary bycatch because of reckless fishing methods. Like millions of others, I really care about the ocean and can't just sit back and watch it being destroyed. Having had the huge privilege of swimming with magnificent creatures, such as humpback whales, whale sharks, and even ge ...

Celebrating HuffPost's First 10 Years by Looking to the Next 10
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
It's May 9, 2005. A guy named Barack Obama is entering his fifth month as a U.S. senator. Benedict XVI has just become pope. Gwen Stefani's "Hollaback Girl" occupies the number-one spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and Britney Spears and Kevin Federline have recently tied the knot and sworn their everlasting love. And a website called The Huffington Post is born. We launched that day, a Monday, to decidedly mixed reviews; as I remember it, critics were lining up to predict it wouldn't last. One hour after we launched, a reviewer compared HuffPost to a combination of Ishtar, Heaven's Gate and Gigli. A year later she emailed me and asked if she could blog for the site, and of course I said yes. In the ensuing 10 years we've made a point to say yes as much as possible, taking risks, embracing challenges and always seeing ourselves as a work in progress. Along the way we've changed dramatically, constantly evolving and innovating while staying true to our DNA, which, from Day 1, ...

Britney Spears And Melissa Joan Hart Haven't Taken A Photo Together In 16 Years, And It Shows
Huffington Post - about 2 years
Nineties icons Britney Spears and Melissa Joan Hart reunited in Las Vegas this week, reminding us of one of the most underrated teen movies ever made. Back in 1999, the pair starred in Spears' video for "(You Drive Me) Crazy," which appeared on the soundtrack for Hart's film "Drive Me Crazy," co-starring Adrian Grenier. We love the video and the movie, but it looks like Spears and Hart's friendship didn't last over the past 16 years, judging by the awkward-looking photo Planet Hollywood Las Vegas tweeted after the pop star's residency show on Thursday night: We are so thrilled that @MelissaJoanHart could be here tonight!

Some Dude Says He’s Been Philip Seymour Hoffman’s Gay Lover For Years
The Superficial - about 3 years
Adrian Grenier?! I knew it! I probably should’ve used a less sketchy headline like “Philip Seymour Hoffman‘s Business Partner Claims They Were Gay Lovers,” but then I couldn’t have made that Adrian Grenier joke and would’ve wasted my whole day. Fuck all that. Hollywood Life reports: Playwright David Bar Katz and Philip Seymour Hoffman have been friends and business partners for years, but according to a new interview, they were actually more than that. David, who is married with four kids, says they were in a relationship and had plans for the upcoming weekend before he passed away. “We were homosexual lovers. We had a relationship,” David told National Enquirer on Feb. 5. “We were planning to go to the Super Bowl together and have a really nice day. This is so terrible.” Jesus. Up until now, the story has been that Philip Seymour Hoffman had plans to watch the Super Bowl with his son, but then again, we’re talking about a guy with 70 bags of heroin in his apartment, so who th ...

Adrian Grenier Got Shot Down By Nina Agdal
The Superficial - about 3 years
Because her agent is the goddamn devil (Sic him, Jeremy Bieber, sic him!), Nina Agdal has a cameo in the Entourage movie which naturally led to Adrian Grenier trying to fuck her because that kind of thinking has really worked out awesome for him lately. Via Page Six: At a wrap party for their shoot at Prime 112, Grenier kicked it up a notch. “He bought a rose for Nina from a guy selling them on the street and gave it to her,” said a spy. But Agdal, who’s dating Max George of boy band the Wanted, was able to resist. “Good evening, madam. May I interest you in some intercourse? I’m quite famous.” “No, thank you. I’ll stick with a penis that’s been inside Lindsay Lohan.” “As you wish.” What literally just happened to Adrian Grenier, and by all rights, should’ve ended in suicide. Why go on?

Introducing 'Brosmopolitan,' The Magazine For Dudes Who Love 'Anchorman' Quotes
Huffington Post - about 3 years
What would Cosmo for guys look like? According to David Ingber, a writer for the magazine, something like this: Judging from the mock cover, bros are very interested in why Pitbull exists and/or is famous, something we imagine many women would care to know, too. And cover boy Adrian Grenier looks very handsome, even if he does, apparently, prefer flora to humans. Ingber designed the parody cover in Dec. 2013, posting: Cosmopolitan has been on the cutting edge of women's entertainment and news for decades. Now, the time to reach across the gender aisle is finally at hand. Why did it take us this long to realize that, if we replaced the "C" with a "Br," we'd have a completely awesome new magazine for men? We don't know either! We're almost disappointed that "Brosmo" doesn't actually exist.

    THIRTIES
  • 2015
    Age 38
    Adrian Grenier has long been active on behalf of environmental and social causes – from his role as the first Social Good Advocate for Dell computers, to creating the Lonely Whale Foundation in 2015 as a vehicle to inspire empathy and action for protecting the ocean environment and marine life.
    More Details Hide Details In December, Grenier attended the COP 21 climate talks in Paris and advocated alongside ocean explorer Sylvia Earle and wildlife conservation leader Dr. Jane Goodall for swift action to reduce global carbon pollution. Recently, he announced with Dell the launch of a market based plastics packaging feasibility study designed to reduce plastic waste from entering the ocean. "I decided to co-found the Lonely Whale Foundation after seeing the power the Lonely Whale's story had to connect all of us to our oceans. Sometimes climate change can seem overwhelming but I think that 52 has helped us recognize that and connect with one another, and ourselves, to make changes. We realized that filming the documentary alone wasn’t enough. It's my hope that connecting our children, and also our global community, with the Lonely Whale story through education and awareness programs we will inspire change. As we grow our community we will inspire both individuals and organizations towards making significant changes to support ocean health. Today’s children are tomorrow’s environmental leaders. The more we can educate the next generation about the state of the ocean and what they can do everyday to make a difference, the better prepared they’ll be to ensure ocean health improves and stays healthy for multiple generations."
    In 2015, Adrian took on a role as Dell’s first Social Good Advocate, championing healthier, more sustainable choices and actions through digital storytelling and advocacy.
    More Details Hide Details Adrian partners with Dell to advance the company’s 2020 Legacy of Good goals including advocating for adoption of the circular economy. Together, Dell and Adrian launched the NYC Tech Takeback program to make it easier for New Yorkers to responsibly recycled their used technology through the Dell Reconnect program. In 2016, they launched the Legacy of Good Short Documentary Film Contest to further explore the challenges and benefits of a circular economic model. Dell also supports Adrian’s own social good efforts including powering his Lonely Whale expedition and a virtual reality experience, “Cry Out: The Lonely Whale Experience.” Together they’ve kicked off a feasibility study to explore the use of ocean plastics in Dell packaging.
    As he told Billboard in 2015, “You don't just come in, take your record and go and promote yourself.
    More Details Hide Details You become part of the family.” Artists are vetted by Grenier and his team: Damien Paris, Mike Frankel and Brian Koerber. Selected musicians join the team for a full day session, in which they professionally record an original song and film a live-style music video. Wreckroom releases EPs in addition to a video series of cover songs, titled "Under the Covers" and two bands, Missouri "punk 'n' roll" trio Radkey and metal-spined Brooklyn five-piece The Skins, released EPs on the label in 2013. Wreckroom also hosts curated music showcases in both Brooklyn and Austin, the latest a 3-day takeover of legendary Arlyn Studios in 2016. The Skins were one of the first bands to record in the Wreckroom and their talent led Grenier to not only sign the group to Wreckroom but also to agree to manage the band. The group is based in Brooklyn and consists of siblings Bayli, Reef, and Kaya Mckeithan, along with friends and dueling guitarists Daisy Spencer and Russell Chell.
    Grenier stepped back in front of the camera in 2015 to reprise his role of Vincent Chase in the Entourage film adaptation.

However, the equipped studio eventually evolved, becoming a breeding ground for fresh talent. Over fifty artists made use for twenty spaces from the basement in Brooklyn. The next year, Grenier started Wreckroom Records and described as “the manifestation of a boyhood dream.” Importantly to Grenier, Wreckroom requires that artists participate in the community.
