Jeremy Renner: No, I'm Not Gay

Jeremy Renner: No, I'm Not Gay

Jeremy Renner takes the cover of The Hollywood Reporter‘s latest issue.

Here’s what the 41-year-old actor had to share:

On going to the hospital while filming The Bourne Legacy: “I got injured kicking a table and missing and hyper-extending my leg! I had to get an MRI. [My arm also] will be f—ed up for a while. I can’t really grab anything [with one hand].”

On why he hesitated before signing on for Bourne: “It was a game-changer in anonymity. I had to consider how this was going to affect everyone I love – especially myself. The star thing, the celebrity thing is new to me. I don’t want to be a good celebrity, a good f—ing star. I want to be a good human being.”

On the downsides of fame, including pesky gay rumors: “I want my personal life to be personal, and it’s not f—ing true. And I don’t care if you’re talking about things that are true, you’re still talking about my personal life. How about I go peek in your window, take what underwear you wore last night, whose husband you were f—ing, and shove that in the megaphone throughout your neighborhood? How does that feel?”

    well now he is most decidedly, clearly, definitively….GAY

  • justsaying

    While I agree with him, that society’s become a little too obsessed with celebrities nowadays, you can’t say “oh I wanna be an actor and be in the public eye” then expect everyone to let you have a personal life. when you decide to be an actor/singer/model/etc, you have to know this is what you’re getting yourself into.

    and also, i love the headline: “Jeremy Renner: No, I’m Not Gay”
    that’s all.
    :)

  • nora

    Lol. I like him.he’s a bad As*

  • mel

    I missed the part of the interview where he says he isnt gay…..

  • Glow

    Well tell us how you really feel Jeremy. LOL!

  • lisag

    Saying you aren’t gay in a magazine only makes people believe it more Jeremy.

    He’s a little short for my taste, but his ass does look nice in his Hawkeye costume.

  • Gurl

    He’s as gay as a clutch purse full of rainbows carried by a 7 foot drag queen in the Castro. Why does he all of the sudden look like a 50 year old woman – bad plastic surgery?

  • really?

    Wow! Well Jeremy, a much more handsome, much more talented, much sexier actor than yourself came out last month. No need to be so defensive and private, it’s 2012 for god sake.

    I’d say that’s a long moderation!

  • A

    Why do gay men always project their own gayness onto perfectly straight men? Stop flaming so hard and leave the man alone.

  • thetis

    iI personally don’t care who is gay – to each his own.

    But I have noticed that gays seem unable to live their experience without immeduately projected it on to someone else as well – it’s nothing to be ashamed of why can’t they live their experience without trying to attach it to just about everyone. NOT EVERY UNMARRIED MAN IS GAY!!!!!! SORRY !!!

    And by the way what part of “its not f–ing true” did you not get

  • Regina George

    lol He is mad.

  • [~Fug Face Man!ston~]

    …wow. looks like he has strong feelings about the rumors and his personal life. hmm..

  • Eric

    Am I the only one who is so sick of hearing celebrities complain and preach about how they are tired of their personal lives being invaded? I mean honestly, it comes with the territory. If you want your personal life private, then don’t become an actor, musician, or whatever. Our culture is basically obsessed with celebrities, what they are doing, who they are with, and everything else about them. If you can’t handle people constantly being in your business, then acting is not the profession for you. It’s sad that actors, musicians, etc. can’t just do what they love without being harassed about their private lives, but it is what it is. Can’t handle it, don’t be an actor. It’s as simple as that. Jeremy has said multiple times that he is not gay. And he should just leave it as that. If there is still speculation, then who cares? All he can do is say the truth. If people don’t believe it, then whatever. There is nothing else he can do. But again, like I said, if you can’t handle your private life being out there for everybody know and see, then you need to get a different profession because the paparazzi, the constant rumors, the constant invasion of privacy, etc. comes with being an actor. Deal with it or leave. That’s all I have to say.

  • George Clooney

    If the stupid gays would leave him alone and let him maintain a personal life apart from film he wouldn’t have to say it.

  • Kevin

    WOW! What a bitch! No straight guy would be such a bitch! lol. He’s just asking to get outed. He better be careful with lying.

  • Melanie

    He never actually said, “I’m NOT gay.” He said and I’ll quote for you because you obviously missed it, “I want my personal life to be personal, and it’s not f—ing true.” He was making a blanket generalization of how he’s not going to address every rumor or speculation made about him.

    @thetis:

  • Paulie

    He’s GAY and his partner was recently in the news when their dog suddenly died.

  • abc

    ive heard some really disgusting things about him (i dont mean being gay, because that isnt bad.. i mean the age in which he chooses his ‘partners’)

  • Metro

    why does he not do the Kevin Spacey thing, that is get into theater a lot and not make any more attention seeking movies, and stay under the radar, from our gaydar, lol
    a non lol point being fishy gays dont wanna talk abotu being gay cause theyre gay in weird and sick ways you see, complete career killing ways, not gay like Neil Patrick Harris who is with someone his own age and has a femily, also not gay like Elton John, again a guy with family and nothing to hide, if you cant air your gay – you know you’re doing something wrong

  • Cha Cha Girl

    Love him, he is a great talent, hopefully he will be around a long time!

  • Dani

    I remember seeing him in Twelve and Holding and thinking that he should be a bigger star.

  • bremary

    I hate that speculation. It’s absolutely NOT normal to be that obsessed with actors/actresses’ personal life. And saying that “if you don’t want your personal life to be invaded, don’t become actor”, is ridiculous. People become actors because that’s what they’re passionate about, that’s what they’re good at, that’s what makes them feel fullfilled and happy. Why should they deny themselves this just because “public” is too f’ing unsatisfied with their own lives that they need to know everything about someone else’s? Ugh.

  • Elina

    Aaah Jeremy…. every normal heterosexual woman feels it with every cell of her body that you are not gay :)

  • Bell

    @Eric: Agreed. I get so irritated hearing them complain about their privacy…everyone knows what goes along with being in the public eye. Deal with it.

  • Eleftheria

    Love him SOOO much!! Totaly badass, extremely talented, hot as hell, he’ s going to be kicking ass for a long long time…. Way to go Jeremy!!!!!

  • http://website,computer Dave From Canada

    At age 41, Jeremy Renner has never been married and has been quoted as saying:”Women come second to my career.” What does that tell you?……………No, I’m not gay…………….??!!

  • GreenCAT

    @Elina: I totally agree with you! Can’t wait to see Jeremy in The Avengers and in the new Bourne movie!

  • roxy

    @abc: @abc: like what’?

  • eh

    so if you defend yourself from a rumor. well ofc it’s true then? get real. does it really matter that he’s 41 and not married yet?
