President Barack Obama isn’t such a Hollywood favorite these days.

“Entourage” actor Adrian Grenier took to Twitter on Tuesday to call out the president for withdrawing a plan to strengthen emissions regulations for smog-causing chemicals.

“COME ON @BarackObama why did you cave 🙁 ? Lead, don’t concede!” the 35-year-old celeb tweeted, linking to a blog post titled, “Obama Bails on Smog Plan.”

Grenier has been environmentally conscious for years. In 2008, the Manhattanite starred in a show called, “Alter Eco,” which follows the actor and several green experts demonstrating changes that have to be made to be more eco-friendly.

“Charlotte’s Web” actor Robert Redford wrote in a Friday Huffington Post column that he’s displeased with the manner in which Obama has handled recent environmental issues.

“One reason I supported President Obama is because he said we must protect clean air, water and lands. But what good is it to say the right thing unless you act on it?” the 75-year-old wrote. “Since early August, three administration decisions — on Arctic drilling, the Keystone XL pipeline and the ozone that causes smog — have all favored dirty industry over public health and a clean environment. Like so many others, I’m beginning to wonder just where the man stands.”
