Jeremy Renner Discusses His Gay Rumours in the Best Way

Jeremy took the high road when asked to talk about the constant gay rumours.

T he actor is constantly surrounded by rumours about his sexuality, but he says it’s ridiculous and outdated. He commented that he thinks society needs to stop trying to shame people no matter what their sexuality is and wishes we could all move on from that attitude:

“As a general rule I don’t respond to questions about my personal life. I’m not going to try to prove what I am or am not. It’s silly, right? When you google yourself and the first thing that comes up is “Jeremy Renner gay,” it’s like, “Oh, now you’ve arrived. You’re now a giant movie star.” So I just had a big laugh about it. I don’t care, ultimately, if that’s what people want to think, read and care about. F–king say whatever the hell you want about me. Look at where we’re at socially—leaps and bounds ahead of where we started. That’s an amazing thing. To suggest that it’s negative, that being gay is a terrible thing, a perversion or whatever—I just don’t get it. Don’t you wish we were in a world where we’re not shaming, judging and boxing people in?”

Jeremy also admits that he owns a gun, but doesn’t hunt. He keeps the gun at home and never brings it with him, using it just for protection. He commented:

“No. For me it’s for home protection or sport shooting or target practice. I’m not a hunter. I spent a lot of time training for movies, shooting and getting comfortable with weapons. There’s no fear for me ever in a weapon now. I also have a few swords, but that’s because of what they mean to me; there’s a lot of history behind them. They’re all tucked away and hidden now that I have a baby.”

That time he made a joke about Jennifer Lopez’s ‘Globes’ at the Golden Globes:

“I’d just watched the show’s opening monologue, thinking, Those girls, co-hosts Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, are so funny, awesome and pretty racy. So I went out, and then that happened. It’s my sense of humor. I don’t take things too seriously. I didn’t watch any of the Globes. I went to have a drink at the bar, and I kept hearing people all night saying, “Dude, that was the funniest thing,” “Bro, that was the best part of the show.” I was like, What are you talking about? I was clueless.
