JERRY FERRARA THEN AND NOW: THE PROOF IS ON THE BEACH

Nothing beats a great pair of before and after photos. Jerry Ferrara, who plays Turtle on “Entourage” has lost 55 pounds since the show’s first season in 2004. He lost it slowly – two or three pounds a month – by improving his eating habits and getting more exercise. No radical diet or workout programs. (Photo right: Jerry was photographed in a swimsuit on Season Five of the show, and the photo on the left was taken this weekend in Malibu.)

ENTOURAGE STAR JERRY FERRARA IS LIVING IT UP IN HOLLYWOOD

Jerry Ferrara has changed a lot since he started on Entourage playing “Turtle,” the chubby pot-smoking slacker. We spotted him outside the Fig & Olive restaurant in West Hollywood and the clean shaven actor looked slim and cute and he was happily posing for photos with pretty girls who were making a big fuss over him. Like Sex & the City, fans don’t want to let go of their “friends” on Entourage. The TV series is ending after season 8 and it looks like a feature film is in the making. Executive producer Mark Wahlberg is convinced there is more story to tell, and so are we.
