Celebrity and Paparazzo Team Up for Documentary

It seems a little incongruous that an actor who tries to come off as above the fray of celebrity tabloid culture would make a documentary on a paparazzo. But “Entourage” star Adrian Grenier addresses that in the “Teenage Paparazzo” trailer – he’s trying to “make sense of this insane celebrity world” through a 13-year-old LA-based photographer named Austin Visschedyk.

I’m not sure if the documentary accomplishes that, or answers the better question of “Where is this kid’s mother?!!?”, but the self-serious Grenier goes to the front lines of the tabloid photography culture — and gets interviews with the biggest paparazzi tip-off artists out there, Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton. Austin says he’s out there, like, 17 hours a day and wonders if the paparazzi will target him after the film comes out. (Uh…no.)

In an interview on Huffington Post, Grenier actually says, “I think my movie will mark the end of the hyper-tabloid era.” And that doesn’t seem to be tongue in cheek.

If you think you can stomach it, “Teenage Paparazzo” debuts on HBO on September 27 at 9 pm.
