Score! Wonderwall ran into Adrian Grenier at a Heineken event for the Union of European Football Associations (that's a soccer league, for all y'all Americans) last night. We chatted him up about "footie" and his craziest experience with a fan; read on to check out our convo.
Wonderwall: So you're a soccer fan, eh?
Adrian Grenier: Isn't everybody? Real fans call it football.
WW: Who's your team then?
AG: The [Los Angeles] Galaxy, of course. When in Rome.
WW: Soccer fans are known to be pretty crazy. Have you ever gotten dressed up or rowdy at a game?
AG: They're very aggressive, they take it very seriously. No. That's why I watch it on TV; it's safer. I would love to go someday. Never went to a game.
WW: Speaking of crazy fans, what's the craziest fan encounter you've had recently?
AG: I had one fan come up to me and give me a hug and almost break my back. He was so excited -- you know that super-human force when someone gets excited? The adrenaline kicks in, he grabbed me ... he wanted to hug it out.
WW: Did he preface it with that?
AG: Of course. They all do. And whether I wanted to or not, I was huggin' it out with him.
Well, at least it was out of love, AG.
