'Entourage's' Constance Zimmer talks money
Constance Zimmer has been a regular presence on American TV screens for years, with roles on shows such as "Joan of Arcadia" and "Boston Legal." But her most recognizable part by far has been as studio executive Dana Gordon on the HBO hit "Entourage." As that show wraps up its final season, Zimmer will segue onto the USA Network's "Royal Pains" as the new love interest for main character Dr. Hank Lawson.

Who were some of the coolest people you worked with?
We did the premiere of "Dances with Wolves," so I worked with Kevin Costner's wife. I worked with lots of wives of celebrities, because they were always the co-chairs on the committees. I worked with Nancy Short, Martin Short's wife; Cindy Costner; (Tom Hanks' wife) Rita Wilson -- all these great women. We also used to do these big benefit dinners with the American Cinematheque called "The Moving Picture Ball." Those were incredible, because we honored Steven Spielberg, Rob Reiner, Sean Connery. They were huge events. I met (Robert) De Niro, Audrey Hepburn -- these incredible actors -- and no one knew I was an actress. The funniest thing is the celebrity security people, like Tom Cruise's bodyguard. I worked with him, and now he's working for me as an actor. He sees me on the red carpet and it's so weird, because I used to be on the other side, getting celebrities down the red carpet.
