Adrian Grenier thinks mermaids are real

This is such a small non-story, but it still has me chuckling. According to Gatecrasher, Adrian Grenier is an idiot. Adrian is some kind of self-professed animal lover, as well as an environmental and animal-rights activist. His ex-girlfriend Isabel Lucas is a dolphin-rights activist, and it would make sense if she had been the one to get his interest started in animal rights. Adrian is also the host of Planet Green’s Alter-Eco series, which is mostly about environmental concerns, but has some animal rights stuff thrown in. All in all, you’d expect a guy like that to be able to answer simple questions about how his involvement in these causes began. Not so much. Unless this is all a massive joke – in which case… haha, is it funny when people think you’re an idiot?

Adrian Grenier seems a bit confused when it comes to reality. The “Entourage” actor told us that the 1984 Tom Hanks flick “Splash” turned him into an animal lover.

When we gently told him that, much like Santa, mermaids aren’t real, Grenier responded, “Wait. Aren’t mermaids animals? Whatever, they still count.” In your dreams, buddy.

[From Gatecrasher]

So, just for fun, I googled “Are mermaids real?” Dude. Nearly a million hits. They are image results too – including this image of some kind of petrified merman, I think. I also think mermaids have become some sort of sexual fetish, judging from some of the other images. Not to be crass, but how would that sexual fetish work again? Oh, wait. The legend is that mermaids have all of their parts in tact when they come to land, right? Something like that. As for Adrian… well, I just hope he was joking around or drunk. Fingers crossed.

    Wellll … HE’s proof that Cro-Magnon Man still exists …

    How old is this kid? He sure has a lot of hair.

  2. KateNonymous says:

    Actually, that’s what men look like when they don’t body wax–you know, like they’ve actually gone through puberty.

  3. Firestarter says:

    I wish he would believe in bathing and not Mermaids.
    He looks like he isn’t into bathing.

  4. Scorpiogal says:

    He has a completely normal amount of hair! I’ve sure seen a lot hairier than that. The whole body waxing topic reminds me of a guy who was horrified and disgusted to learn that women actually do grow hair around their nether-regions. (Apparently all of his girlfriends had always waxed and he honestly didn’t know that they didn’t come like that.) LOL

    Though I don’t really care for him, I have to admit that once in science class I said humans weren’t mammals. We all have off days…

  6. JoGirl says:

    Scorpiogal, was that guy Terrence “baby wipes” Howard by any chance?

    I find Grenier’s comments cute! Splash actually does have a pretty strong animal rights sub-plot, despite the fact that it’s based on a mythical creature.

  7. the original kate says:

    how can he look dirty even when he’s in the ocean?

  8. Scorpiogal says:

    JoGirl- no, it wasn’t a celeb, just some random idiot who lacks knowledge of the female anatomy. Who knew there was more than one? ha ha ha

  9. Colleen says:

    I will never NEVER understand the appeal of this kid. His head is way too big for his body and that fro – is he trying to disguise how GIGANTIC his head is? Not to mention that he cannot act. At ALL. Ick.

  10. gg says:

    I meant the hairiness of his entire head. He looks like a 60 year old streetbum.

  11. Kylie says:

    No.. Dont tell me they are not real. Thats what I want to be when I grow up!

  12. roachii says:

    man o man u guys are high.larious; whether you’re hating on him or not.

    Surely he was jokin. I too, think his commentary is cute.

    &i love his hairy ass; bring it Adrian!!

    shaving is overrated [;

    Some people are just stupid… When I was in 8th grade I was the only one in my science class that didn’t think an egg was a dairy product…

    The only arguement everyone else had for it being dairy was that you eat it for breakfast. I wanted to bang my head on my desk until I fell unconscious.
