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.

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

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

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

    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.
