Woman Crush Wednesday: Emmanuelle Chriqui

Above: Emmanuelle Chriqui

Name: Emmanuelle Chriqui

Birthdate: December 10, 1977

Birthplace: Montreal, Quebec

Claim to fame: She is best known for her role on HBO television series Entourage as Sloan McQuewick, the love interest of ‘E’ (Kevin Connelly’s character).

What we can see her in next: Just like the role she’s best known for, she’ll be reprising her role as Sloan in the Entourage movie, which releases in theatres everywhere on June 5.

Interesting fact: She’s superstitious — before she gets on a plane she always says, “double heaps”.

Best quote: “I’m actually very sensitive to energies and when people are not aligned, I can feel that”

“Acting is not glamorous. It’s not. Anybody who wants to get into acting for the glamour is in for a hard time.”

“I always describe my career as something where nothing ever popped overnight.”

Why we love her: This week is Entourage week. Entourage the movie hits theatres everywhere on June 5, so it’s only fitting that today our WCW is the major female character throughout the show’s run on HBO, Emmanuelle Chriqui. She played the role of Sloan McQuewick, and will be reprising her role in the movie, as Sloan and E try to amicably have a baby together while not actually being “together”. And as much speculation has had, the movie is not supposed to let down those devoted Entourage lovers. Not only that, but they say the movie stands on its own as a fantastic summer film, even if you didn’t follow the gang throughout the show.

So how did this Canadian girl end up on one of the most popular shows in HBO history? That’s a good question but we definitely know that nobody else could have played that role but her now. For her part, Chriqui was born in Montreal but grew up in the Newmarket, Ontario are where she first started getting the acting bug. She then moved to Vancouver, BC to fully pursue acting while she worked part-time as a waitress. There came various bit TV roles, and her starring in several music videos including Hinder’s Lips of an Angel and Zac Brown Band’s, Whatever it is. In 2008, she played Adam Sandler’s love interest in the film You Don’t Mess With The Zohan, which was probably one of her bigger roles to date.

But obviously audiences know her as Sloan — the girl that somehow remained tangled with a wild entourage of men who just can’t quite seem to grow up. The classy Canadian-born actress has been with those guys since the start, and she’ll be with them once again when the movie releases in theatres. And her character and presence in the movie poses the big question: can you live the dream frat-boy lifestyle with your rich friends and still hold onto the love of your life? Or do you let it all slip away just because you can’t let go of the fun and temptation happening all around you?

I guess we will have to see how it all unfolds, but Emmanuelle Chriqui definitely is not a girl you want to let go of. I think everyone would agree with that. Not even just Entourage fans.

You can see Entourage the movie in theatres nationwide on June 5.
