On Friday, Dec. 14, a date when you might expect to find young movie stars skiing down the slopes in Aspen or frolicking on a beach in San Tropez, Clinton Hill celebrity Adrian Grenier (star of HBO’s “Entourage” ) was ladling out soup at the Neighbors Together Soup Kitchen in Brownsville.

For an hour that afternoon, the actor — currently at work on a film called “Adventures in Power” — served soup to the over 100 people who are relying on the soup kitchen for food this holiday season.

In a statement, the actor said, “It isn’t right that millions of families suffer from hunger and worry about getting their next meal. We all need to help in whatever way we can.”
