Jeremy Renner: Stop Asking If I'm Gay

Apparently people think Jeremy Renner is gay. I had no idea this was a thing, I mean have you seen him? He’s like Mark Wahlberg on steroids! Jeremy Renner is definitely not gay, and I should know what gay men are like, I watch A LOT of Bravo.

Anyways, people are stirring gay rumors only because he’s 41 and unmarried and doesn’t have a Stacy Keibler on his arm.  Renner is sick of people asking if he’s gay and tells The Hollywood Reporter, “I want my personal life to be personal, and it’s not f-cking true. And I don’t care if you’re talking about things that are true, you’re still talking about my personal life.”

Renner then gets pretty angry, saying, “How about I go peek in your window, take what underwear you wore last night, whose husband you were f-cking, and show that in the megaphone throughout your neighborhood? How does that feel?”

Ok, buddy, let’s settle down.

Renner remembers a time when he was called a “f-g” for wearing a scarf at a bar on Christmas Eve one year. I’m sorry, but the least offensive part of this story is “wearing a scarf” but rather “at a bar on Christmas Eve!” That’s just, how do I put this delicately…alcoholic-ish?

Anyways, Jeremy Renner, what is the story you want us to know about your hetero scarf?

“This guy jokes me with the scarf I was wearing. Then he shoved my sister and I got behind him and I choked him out – put him to sleep.”

Kudos to Renner for not dating around Hollywood like all the other schlubs, I’m looking at you Wilmer Valderrama. But apparently, if you don’t date enough starlets, the tabloid world will think you are gay. 

Renner does open up about his last relationship. He spent four years with his ex Jess Macallan, but broke up when she wanted to become an actress.

“That was part of the issue,” says Renner, “I was going through the Hurt Locker campaign and she’s like, ‘Where do I get headshots?’”
