Jeremy Renner Covers 'Esquire' August 2012

Jeremy Renner suits up on the cover of Esquire‘s August 2012 issue, on newsstands now.

Here is what the 41-year-old Bourne Legacy actor had to share with the mag:

On before he was famous: “I used to hang out at karaoke bars all the time. It was the most fun you could have when you had no money. I went [to Barney's Beanery] twice a week from 1995 until, like, 2002. Religiously.”

On the stock market: “I will never be in the stock market. It’s just gambling. I’m a gambler, but I’ll gamble on the practicality of things. If I’m all-in on a structure, at least I can sleep in the damn thing.”

On how he measures success: “Architecture and building is about how you get around the obstacles that are presented to you. That sometimes determines how successful you’ll be: How good are you at going around obstacles?”

    Esquire Philippines is now probably filing this under their “This-layout-is-so-gonna-be-on-our-next-issue” folder.

    I can’t WAIT for the Bourne Legacy. Jeremy Renner is an amazing actor, going to be well worth the wait, to see what he does with Bourne.

  • Lola

    Rumours were that he and Tom Cruise were awfully comfortable with one another…

  • Halli

    So true about overcoming obstacles. The older you get the more you realize that’s what life is all about. About character and consistency

  • DemiTasse

    I like his attituce. The trailer for this was really good. I bet Matt Damon wants in on the sequel.

    I was reading this on the plane a few days ago, really great article. I like him.

  • Night100

    This was one of his better interviews. It went more into his side business which is more interesting than the tabloid talk.

  • snazzy

    Saw that Ted Casablanca at E! was fired for outing Jeremy Renner. If you’re gay, you’re gay — so what! Don’t fire someone just for that!

    @Verity: Yes she is. A very fine, intensely competent one. Everyone loves her.
