For seven seasons, Entourage fans have followed the triumphs and trials in the life of Vincent Chase as the movie star character and his pals conquered Hollywood and lived the good life in Los Angeles.
In doing so, fiction has altered real life of Adrian Grenier, who plays Vince. "I was a brooding pretentious artist before I met Vince, and I now I'm somewhere in between having mildly good taste and being able to just let down your guard and have fun," the actor, 35, told PEOPLE of how his character has changed him.
It's all coming to an end, though, as Entourage begins its final season on Sunday (10:30 p.m. ET). Before the curtain draws to a close on the HBO hit, Grenier gives some insight into what to expect in the final eight episodes, as well as the future of the franchise.

The first time Kimberly Williams-Paisley left her country star husband in charge of their son Huck, she was, he recalls, a nervous mother.
"She was going away to do a press thing in New York, and she gave me this list of things to do like: 'No gluten, make sure he takes his nap, don't let him watch TV,' " Brad Paisley says of the care needs of the now 3-year-old. So, he did what any caring husband would do: He punk'd his wife.
"We no sooner had a 'coast is clear' kind of situation, [then my band and I] went and bought a doll at Toys 'R Us – a life-size, most realistic doll we could find – and dressed it up in the same clothes [as Huck] and filmed," says the practical jokester, known for pranking tour mates Taylor Swift and Kellie Pickler.

The stars of Entourage are usually just as tight off-screen as they are on the show, but an alleged sock-stuffing incident during a PEOPLE photoshoot has sparked a playful war of words between Adrian Grenier and Kevin Connolly.
Grenier's gone on the mock-defensive after Connolly appeared on Tuesday's Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien and, after the late night host showed a PEOPLE photo of Grenier, Connolly and costar Jerry Ferrara costumed as the Bee Gees for PEOPLE's Hottest Bachelors issue, Connolly told the audience that Grenier's ample disco-pants bulge came courtesy of a strategically placed sock.
"My question is: how would HE know?" Grenier told PEOPLE at the sixth season premiere party for the HBO hit. "What was he doing looking? And why was Conan looking too? It's weird! I've never scrutinized another man's groin area in my entire life – or his socks, for that matter."

Though she was spotted getting close to Entourage leading man Adrian Grenier in Santa Barbara last weekend, Twilight star Ashley Greene insists they've only really connected over the environment.
"I have only met him once. But he's very smart. We actually started talking about environmental stuff. He's a very go-green guy," Greene told PEOPLE at the 2009 NBA Championship Victory Celebration hosted by the L.A. Lakers on June 18. "I think he's a really sweet guy."
The two first met last Friday at Oakley’s "Learn to Ride" surf weekend in Santa Barbara, Calif. By Saturday night, Grenier, 32, and Greene, 22, "were flirting and dancing close all night long," says a source who spotted them at a barbecue at El Capitan Ranch. "[They] got super cozy all weekend."
When told that she looked cute and cuddly with Grenier, Greene laughed and would only say, "God, that's what I keep hearing!"

The Twilight actress and the Entourage hunk met for the first time Friday during the welcome dinner at Oakley's "Learn to Ride" surf weekend – and were practically inseparable until Sunday, a source tells PEOPLE.
"They hit it off," says the source, who saw the pair dancing together to music by Kelley James on Friday night. "[They] really had a great time."

Adrian Grenier and his girlfriend, Transformers 2 star Isabel Lucas, have split on the heels of her car crash while driving with costar Shia LaBeouf, a source tells PEOPLE.
The pair broke up about three weeks ago, right after the accident that left LaBeouf with a crushed hand. "It wasn't working out," says a source. "Adrian saw her with Shia and that was kind of it – the crash, their hanging out. He obviously didn't appreciate it."

Adrian Grenier, celebrating his birthday (a day early) at a pal's eco-friendly beach house in Malibu. The Entourage star – who turned 31 on July 10 – partied with childhood friends from high school and his girlfriend, and the group spent the day boogie boarding and playing volleyball on the beach. Meanwhile, the night before, a more covered-up Grenier hit the dance floor at L.A.'s Ritual Supper Club for the official Entourage wrap party. Jeremy Piven mingled on the outdoor patio, while Kevin Connolly hung out with the guys before taking off at midnight.
