Fast five With Emmanuelle Chriqui
She's one of the few ladies who stand out in the male-dominated Entourage
Name: Emmanuelle Sophie Anne Chriqui
Born: Dec 10, 1977, Montreal, Canada
Filmography: Entourage TV series (2005-2011), You Don't Mess With The Zohan (2008), Cadillac Records (2008), Entourage (2015)
1 ROSE AMONG THE THORNS
Chriqui has the privilege of being one of the few female characters to stand out in the male-dominated Entourage movie.
Together with the boys, her character Sloan - Eric's (Kevin Connolly) ex-girlfriend and baby mama - returns to the big screen after the series ended in 2011.
Now showing in cinemas, Entourage reunites Chriqui with Connolly, Adrian Grenier, Kevin Dillon, Jerry Ferrara and Jeremy Piven and follows the gang's latest Hollywood endeavour - movie star Vince (Grenier) wants to become a director.
Sloan has a big part in the movie, and fans of Sloan and Eric will finally get the answer to the "will they or won't they" question.
2 PADDING IT UP
Playing a heavily-pregnant Sloan was quite an experience for the pretty, petite brunette.
She told talk show host Jimmy Kimmel recently that it was fun playing an expectant mum and that she was "just constantly rubbing the belly".
But what she enjoyed more was having to add "chicken cutlets" to boost her bosom, said the 37-year-old.
"We were doing our wardrobe fitting and looking in the mirror and going, this looks really disproportionate. And I can't believe it but I was like, 'We need to make my boobs bigger!'
"So chicken cutlets - that's an industry term for the fake things that we would put underneath to give giant, pregnant boobs."
3 ONE OF THE GUYS
Chriqui, who calls herself a tomboy, always felt like she was one of the guys.
In an interview with Esquire, the Los Angeles-based actress said they kept in touch after the series ended, particularly with Grenier as they do a lot of philanthropic and environmental work together.
"It's really not an on-screen thing. Months can go by because we're all busy and doing stuff, but we're connected."
4 TV QUEEN
Chriqui has found her comfort zone on the small screen. After Entourage, she appeared in TV series like The Mentalist and Cleaners, and is starring in the acclaimed crime drama Murder In The First.
5 STAYING YOUNG
Chriqui looks younger than her age.
The Canadian revealed to Allure that on top of her regular gym workouts, she adopts a realistic attitude towards ageing. "It's just trying to have a healthier outlook on me. I'm not 25 and a size 0 anymore, and it's okay."
IT'S A TRADITION FOR THE ENTOURAGE SERIES TO FEATURE MANY CELEBRITY CAMEOS.
