Jeremy Renner doesn’t like it when people pry into his personal life.
“The Hurt Locker” and “Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol” actor has been romantically linked to various women in the past, including Jessica Simpson. In addition, there have been whispers that he is gay.
Renner told The Hollywood Reporter, “I want my personal life to be personal, and it’s not f***ing true.” He added, “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?”
In the same interview, Renner recalled a Christmas Eve a few years ago when he attacked a man who called him an anti-gay slur. He said, “This guy chokes me with the scarf I was wearing. He called me a f** ’cause I was wearing a scarf! Then he shoved my sister and I got behind him and I choked him out — put him to sleep.”
Renner plays Hawkeye in “The Avengers,” opening next month.
