Adrian Grenier takes OK!’s Last Word interview in the issue on newsstands now.

The Entourage star, 34, comes clean about chasing hurricanes, being envious, getting rid of his anger and feeling proud just in time for his HBO documentary Teenage Paparazzo, which airs September 27.

This is what you won’t find in the magazine.  

Last time you lied?

Last night when I was at a restaurant and ordered the lobster. The waitress was so nice and said “how was everything?” I said “great, thank you.” The truth is the lobster was overcooked and dried out, but I ate it anyway.

Last chore or errand you did?

These days, it’s harder and harder to do chores. Actually, I went through a bunch of old boxes I had in storage. I was cleaning out a bunch of clutter. I’m getting rid of a bunch of VHS tapes, even though I had such a great collection and now they’ve become obsolete, unfortunately. I’m still having a hard time getting separated from them because they were such great choices, but they have to go. I think I’m going to take them to the library, and donate them.

Last dream or nightmare?

Ooh, I had a pretty gnarly nightmare last night. It was in the future, and I was the outsider. I was trying to prove myself to these more evolved creatures – these alien-type creatures. I was trying to prove myself and fit in. They were futuristic. It was scary. I don’t know if it was a nightmare, but I was definitely in uncharted territory.

Last risk you took?

There was a hurricane coming, and I was on the beach. The ocean was pretty tumultuous. The waves were big, intimidating and rough. I decided to go in and take my chances with the ocean. I was on Long Island. There was pretty big swells, and the lifeguard was recommending that people don’t go in, but I needed to get in since it had been so long, so I took a little 5-10 minute risk, I guess.

Last time you felt angry?

Anger is such a distant memory of mine. Anger’s nostalgic now. I don’t get angry anymore. I realized it was a useless emotion. Although, I do get frustrated.

Last time you felt frustrated?

In the film that I’m making and the surrounding content, I’ve been dealing with celebrities a lot. Some celebrities can be very difficult and not return your calls or sort of be flaky. I was a little frustrated with a couple of them. But I don’t want to name names.

Last time you felt envious?

Envy – that’s a strong one. The other day, I was out to dinner with a friend, and she ordered this dish that looked so amazing and tasted so good and mine wasn’t all that great. Mine was good, but her’s was really good, so I was envious of her meal. This was a couple weeks ago. I was envious of what somebody else had ordered. It’s risotto with parmesan cheese and asparagus. I was watching the carbs, so I was envious of her carb abandon.

Last time you went to New Mexico?

The last time I went was a couple years ago, so it’s been a little while. About 2 ½ years or three years ago. The dry heat and the smell of the desert immediately puts me back to distant memories of my childhood.

Last time you felt proud?

My teenage goddaughter was highlighted for her … she … all of her friends were ganging up on somebody online, and she stepped in and convinced them to be nicer and to stop. I was very proud of her for that.

Catch Adrian Grenier’s documentary Teenage Paparazzo on September 27 at 9 p.m. on HBO. For the rest of Adrian's Last Word interview, pick up the OK! on newsstands now. The cover line is "Snooki: My Battle With Anorexia."
