Jeremy Renner is disgusted by unwanted attention to his personal life and his housemate and best friend Kristoffer Winters, whom he refers to as his "brother", he tells Details:
It's not surprising that in Renner's dating vacuum, the worst bottom-feeding websites have suggested there's something more to his relationship with his pal and sometime housemate Winters. The unwanted attention nauseates him, even as he understands its causes.
"I don't pay attention to that horseshit. Build 'em up to bring 'em down?" he says of celebrity culture. "I'm not going on that train, my son. I'm not going on that train. I'll walk. I'll take a bike." He lets out a laugh that sounds like a lawn mower starting up. "I'd rather just not be popular."
Renner doesn't date because he doesn't have time:
When Renner says he's given up his life for his job, this is what he means: "I never dated, because I couldn't afford to date. I didn't even have electricity. You try to put a positive spin on it, like, 'Hey, this is so sexy—look at all these candles!' But I loved what I was doing. The sacrifices I made in personal relationships had the biggest effect on my life. Even now, any woman would take a No. 2 seat to my job."
Calling somebody gay is a put-down? Fuck you, asshole. I will never watch another movie of his again. Hope gay people boycott this short little, ugly fuck.
Gay people should also wipe their ass with DETAILS magazine. It's a homophobic rag that steals from gay men and claims it as their own for creepy metro-sexual "straight" men.
Details is an embarrassment when compared to what it was 2 decades ago.
Where does he say being called gay nauseates him? He says the prying into his life nauseates him. He hates "rumors".
I've met him a couple times - could be gay but didn't ping at all to me. Seemed more like one of those tough guy/cowboy types. But very nice and very cool. Makes me cringe to see him blasted here for something he doesn't say.
Contact this 'nauseated' asshole and tell him how you feel:
Adam Sachs is the piece of shit who wrote the article.
[quote]Seemed more like one of those tough guy/cowboy types.
This made me laugh.
He's a teeny tiny man that wants to be a big muscle big shot. He's Shia LeBoeuf, basically.
He's is SUCH a drama queen.
He better watch it: if he keeps up at that attitude, then he won't have to worry about anyone talking about him at all.
As it is, he's only got the people who actually know who he is.
My friend knows him and hangs out with him and she said she has no idea whether he's gay or not. She thinks he might be the rare asexual or else has some issues. Totally nice guy and fun to party with, though. He's very popular in Hollywood.
[quote]the worst bottom-feeding websites have suggested there's something more to his relationship with his pal and sometime housemate Winters.
What is this pertaining to? Gay sites?
You need to get that Sachs asshole fired. This isn't right. That asshole needs to go. Contact him and Details.
Fuck you, R11. You defend this asshole. Fuck you. Get some self-respect.
It's a bunch of grandstanding to get some press for his ass is what it is. EVERY actor or public figure KNOWS that the public will take an interest in his private life if he is remotely attractive. It's part of the whole game. What the fuck is he, headless? The same old TIRED "Woe is me, the public just won't leave me alone. Why must they be so nosy about my private life? Why do they CARE so much? Sniff. Sniff."
Just go away, you big BORE. Guess what? I don't know who this actor even IS and I don't care if he sleeps with donkeys. He obviously is an ASS, so there would be some symmetry in that.
He's promoting the latest Mission Impossible movie, btw. He'll need to make a lot of outrageous statements to generate interest in this turd.
Details has always been the go-to vehicle to publicly deny your actual details.
Sheesh, r13, get a grip.
Princess Geranium speaks!
Actually, I think R14 and R15 speak the truth.
This is a transparent bid for attention... where there is none. No one really cares much about Renner (particularly after The Town), and people care even less about the latest tired MI movie.
And NO ONE reads Details anymore.
So a little gay stuff in the mix (pro or con) is good for business.
R20, so 'bids for attention' makes everything acceptable? Because if that's the case. Rehire Brett Ratner.
Details has always been a shitty magazine that stole gay attitude, gay fashion, gay sensibility, and then insisted it was for straight men, by straight men.
I didn't know who he is, so I just googled him, and fuck, he really is an ugly short man.
I can't think why anyone would care if he were gay.
Who the hell is he? I checked out imdb and still -- who the hell is he?
He's quite a good actor, r24. He isn't handsome enough to be a leading man, but he's strong support in big movies, e.g., [italic]the Town[/italic] and [italic]the Assassination of Jesse James . . . [/italic] He had a tiny part as Hawkeye in [italic]Thor[/italic], so he might have his own franchise coming.
I don't think I've ever read much gossip about him. He's not exactly being hounded by the paparazzi so I don't really know what he's complaining about. I guess he's trying to seem more like a movie star and in more 'demand' than he really is.
A heterosexual version of Hawkeye.
I have to say though, apart from the sheer, unadulterated pointlessness of the whole piece - I don't like soup but I don't make a fuss about it - the majority of the scathing comes from the article writer, not really from the actor.
The 'horseshit' he refers to seems to be about celebrity rumor in general. It's the article writer that twists it, though no doubt with the help of some sad hack publicist.
As I said, I hate Details, I think it's an appalling magazine. I can't even begin to imagine its audience.
[quote]He had a tiny part as Hawkeye in Thor, so he might have his own franchise coming
He does. He's the big-name addition to The Avengers.
The Voice of the Night
I know exactly how he feels. These rumors just nauseate me too.
His reputed partner is some sort of monstrous ginger freak.
[quote]Who the hell is he? I checked out imdb and still -- who the hell is he?
He is best known as the star of The Hurt Locker. That film won the Oscar for Best Picture, and he was nominated for Best Actor.
It's just the "co-investor" in his house.
The Voice of the Night
the tone of his comments scream "trying to hard"
He looks like the reincarnation of Peter Lorre.
R3, so Details is homophobic now? I thought in the past we said it was pro-gay, and really a gay magazine posing as a straight magazine?
We need to get our theories straight.
so Details is homophobic now? I thought in the past we said it was pro-gay, and really a gay magazine posing as a straight magazine?
To be a gay maagzine posing as a straight maagzine, it has to be homophobic. It presents you with all the male muscles and ass and primping tips, it needs to pretend to be antigay.
It's like the high school football captain who mutters to you, "Don't let me catch you looking at me in the showers, gaywad" so he's sure you look at him sensually lathering up and posing in the nude.
I get the concept, R38, but when I've looked at Details in the past it has usually had pro-gay articles and issues
R37, Details and Esquire have often made fun of gay men.
Here's an example from Details: See Link.
Esquire told father's to call their sons "shit-licking faggots".
Jeremy is Aout to become an international superstar. He was nominated for an Oscar the last two years. He is being groomed to take over the Mission Impossible franchise. He is Hawkeye in The Avengers. And he is taking over the Bourne movies starting with The Bourne Legacy. I'm his step uncle and am very excited about this upcoming year for him.
So is he gay or what, uncle?
He says he's not.
I'm his 6th cousin and he told me he was.
Tough guy/cowboy types are the queerest of them all, toots.
I know a guy who knows another guy who knows the butcher of his 6th cousin and I was told he is.
Jeremy's 12th cousin, my 18th cousin said that he heard from our great, great, great, great, great step aunt that he was bi.
From everythong I've read about him he seems like a humorless twat.
Who is he?
In other words, R42, because he's going to be a movie star now he can't come out of the closet.
The poor guy. People should just leave him alone, like magazine writers.
Obviously Tom Cruise is rearing that boy the right way!
At the Oscars a couple of years ago Colin Farrell joked about spooning Jeremy Renner
He seems awfully boring-looking to become an international superstar and have three franchises.
Tell me about it, R55.
"I'm not going on that train, my son. I'm not going on that train. I'll walk. I'll take a bike."
That literally sounds like Cruise scripted it for him.
I haven't read Details magazine in decades.
I wasn't aware it had been around that long
What's a "magazine"?
The lady doth protest too much.
He has NEVER dated??? Not as in codename for sex and obviously no relationships?
Either asexual, gay or both.
Some of us "don't have time to date" and some of us "prefer to date in Europe." I don't know what the big deal is!
He's such a fuckin' rat face who would care? Of course he's not gay. He just wears low waisted jeans, high heels and carries a poodle because he likes to.
R11= bad fiction writer.
It's sickening...it's one thing to be a cowardly closet case. It's another to be a homophobic closet case. He can go fuck himself. Along with Scott Caan and Colton Haynes. They're really disgusting pieces of shit. It makes me admire out actors even more.
Cut him some slack, perhaps he's Catholic. Even the non-molested wait until their parents have passed to begin dating.
I'm sure Renner's publicists will be all over this tomorrow, denying he ever said this shit. And I don't think he said it.
While the laywer his handlers used certainly said some disgusting things R65, Colton Haynes himself has been nothing but publicly "gay-friendly".
I mean perhaps doesn't make a difference to you, but as someone who hates Renner responses her but at least can sympathize with what happened to Haynes it is worth pointing out.
If Hollywood and its precious actors don't like gay/sexuality rumors... then STOP keeping everyone in the closet.
It fucking pisses me off that the industry doesn't seem to get that it created this whole mess in the first place. It feeds it itself! The more you continue to treat it like it's some career poison, some taboo...then people are going to continue to wonder, speculate and gossip. It's just the way it is.
And of ALL the things people can gossip about, if it's about sexuality - and again, we're talking about grown ass men and women here with protection and publicists, not closeted teens/kids - so the fuck what? There's nothing wrong with being LGBT, so where's the 'insult'? Seriously, there so many more things these people could be concerned about.
R68...you're full of shit. Haynes publicly stated that the gay rumors about him were motivated by HATE. That's homophobic.
And you cannot divorce him from his lawyer's letter which referred to pictures of two young men kissing as perverted. He had to approve that language. it's ridiculous to act as if he had nothing to do with it. It's being done on HIS behalf.
I think he's incredibly fuckable too, but get your ethics out of your pants. He's been unbelievably homophobic.
R68...and I don't know where you're getting this " incredibly gay-friendly" bullshit. He's never made a single gay positive statement, and shies away from his co-stars when they acknowledge any homoeroticism on the werewolf show. he's done exactly the OPPOSITE.
"Too busy to date."??
He is way too old to say something that stupid. Besides that, he's damn ugly.
Whatever, he is a good actor.
If Bill Clinton could run this country, have a wife and still find time to date...I'm thinking this closet case could take a girl out, once in awhile.
Shrugs, Colton is part of the Love is Louder campaign (PR crap I know)and he sometimes tweets about pro-gay causes.
I don't recall him doing anything homophobic, but maybe ya'll know things I don't. Anyway, not trying to derail the thread I was stating what I knew from following him.
Hi, I'm actor Kristoffer Winters, with two f's. Do I look like I smelled cookies?
He not only sounds homophobic, but stupid. Why would he think it necessary to squeeze verbal dog poop through his odd little teeth in this nasty way?
Gah! Is he from the future?
Colton Haynes is not necessarily anti-gay (and of course he is gay anyway), but he did go back into the closet and pretend to be straight AFTER he posed for photos making out with his boyfriend.
He's not gay, and nor does he appeal to gays. He has a face only a very determined woman could love.
I remember there was a thread here on his ass once and the fact that it was considered fairly nice.
Or is that not enough to save him now?
Well technically I don't have time for dating either, but I just call up for take out.
Why is anyone surprised? Even if he didn't say it, he sure as hell isn't going to deny it - his handlers won't let him. He's set to take over a major franchise, which means you can't have nosy people speculating about the ginger-haired man you live with.
"He is way too old to say something that stupid."
He really is - 40 years old actor should know better.
So what if they co-owned a house.
Renner is a cunt
Of course we expect him to deny being gay R82, but we don't expect him to do it in such an insulting way.
Being speculated about being gay is not an insult. I have no tolerance for people who act like it is offensive.
Regardless of whether Renner is closeted or not, that is not cool.
Leave him alone. He's just a mama's boy who takes his mom to the Oscars every year. He doesn't have a gf because he only has time for his friends. He's entitled to his closeted life. kapisch!
He has a low sex drive, in fact...he can't even get it up. Very sad case. I guess he isn't like George, who can afford to hire girlfriends.
What franchise is he working on?
Remember, the studio wouldn't let Cary Grant live with his boyfriend.
Why does Adam Sachs still have a career with DETAILS?
who says "step-uncle?"
We completely understand Jeremy Renner's disgust with these rumors. Why is it that America is so prurient it has to make something ugly out of best friends living together, sharing their lives and bank accounts, and creating careers for one another?
We just don't get it.
Oprah Winfrey and Gayle King
(well, dictated by Oprah to Gayle, who typed it out for both)
My sister is married to his Dad.
I remember watching him on Bravo's reality show The It Factor. He was gay then.
Really, really liked Jeremy in everything I've seen him do.
But my respect for him has gone down considerably. I understand the need for him to be in the closet if he's going to be heading up big movie franchises. Don't necessarily approve, but I do understand it.
But couldn't he have found a nicer way to deny the rumors. Saying it nauseates him, nauseates me.
Hugh Jackman, George Clooney, even Johnny Galecki have found classy ways to deny the gay rumors without insulting gay fans.
You can lie if you want to, but don't insult me in the process.
True, R96. He could have done what Kellan Lutz did and just say he likes living with gay men.
he dates in Europe.
(love that excuse! best ever!)
If that's not anti-gay, r78, then what is?
R99, I meant that he publicly supports gay rights, marriage etc. and isn't like a closet-case politician along the lines of Sen. Larry Craig who opposes gay rights.
He is closeting, but mainly in a way that only affects him.
The difference between what you're citing and what's happening w/ Haynes (if that truly is what's going on) is simply a matter of degrees.
Is a butch faggot such as I to believe that no one has mentioned the fact that Jeremy Renner is/was a MAKEUP Queen who got into acting gigs late in life? The cocksucking Mamma's Boy from Modesto knows how to work her face with product.
How vomitous of Her, the prissy mascaraed over-privileged millionaire, to imply that homosexuality is not to be identified with.
He's just trying to follow the Kevin Spacey route- DADT.
Why this insistance on everyone coming out- he leads a private life.
He's a good actor, and a close friend . And he makes me feel tall.
[quote]who got into acting gigs late in life?
that's not true
imdb does not provide Renner's real, full bio. For many years, MAKEUP, DECORATING and flipping houses, and LIVING WITH ANOTHER PENISED-PERSON took up his time until wearing makeup and TAKING HIS MOM TO AWARDS SHOWS came along.
What part of "dude is a gay cocksucker who pisses on homosexuality in interviews" do you not get?
Johnny Galecki denies that he's gay?
Jeremy's kept very quiet since he was almost knifed in that gay bar in Thailand. Is he just hoping everyone will forget ?
I don't think the article ever said he has anything against gay people or that he felt homosexuality was wrong. What it said was he was tired of the rumors. Different things. If someone keeps picking at you about something you'll eventually blow up. He also didn't choke the gut out because he called Renner a f-g, he choked the guy out because he was being a douche to Renner and his sister. And I just love all the people with such strong viewpoints who won't post a name.
Well Mr. #109, Russell Edwards, privacy is important to a lot of us. Maybe not you. But now that I know you, where you live, how old you are, what kind of car you drive, & how much you make, I'll be sure and not tell anyone else.
I post here a lot, and always sign my name. I'm not afraid of people knowing who I am.
I just have one thng to say. Who cares. He sexy no matter wat
Renner could never play a role like Mark Ruffalo did in The Kids Are Alright - having sex and being naked with a woman. He is just about tolerable in action movies, he was a total blank though in The Hurt Locker.
You know, it's funny how everyone sets their default button on heterosexuality. Let's just assume everyone's straight until we get hard evidence (literally) that they're otherwise. And heaven forbid that anyone be accused of being a shameful degenerate homosexual unless it's beyond a shadow of a doubt.
It's well known that there are careers that homosexual men tend to gravitate towards: decorating, landscaping, hairdressing, ballet dancing and - GASP!!! - acting. Only with acting the business has a very heavy investment in presenting actors as being absolutely straight. But still, you get all these nagging persistent rumors about actors (and no, not just on DL, but all over the net). As the cliche goes "where there's smoke, there's gotta be a fire." As far as acting goes, the burden of proof needs to be that they're straight, not gay.
Is he gay, lesbian, bisexual, bilingual,monogamist, a transvestite -- who cares? Acting is just that: acting. She's a fine actress, so let's leave her alone.
No matter what everyone says, Jeremy Lee Renner is an intense, serious, highly competent actor. Maybe not conventionally beautiful but very competent. He's the NEW Ernest Borgnine. He could also be the new James Cagney. Agree?
[quote]imdb does not provide Renner's real, full bio. For many years, MAKEUP, DECORATING and flipping houses, and LIVING WITH ANOTHER PENISED-PERSON took up his time until wearing makeup and TAKING HIS MOM TO AWARDS SHOWS came along
Really? He's gay? I never would've known, although his being a fussy dresser might have given it away.
I thought he was outed accidently by Ted Casablanca and that is why Ted got fired. He forgot to disguise the name in the middle of one of his items and called the subject "Jeremy"..he was let go from E for it.
Homosexuals are men who in fifteen years of trying cannot get a pissant antidiscrimination bill through City Council.
And yet, Jeremy looks so hot on the cover of Details Magazine.
not sure about Mark Ruffalo's role in The Kids Are Alright, but apparently you haven't seen Monkey Love or the series The Unusuals... he makes love to his women co-stars in both... not that I understand what that meant in respect to confirming his sexuality...
BTW... since hr's had some time off he has been seen dating women, and not just by paparazzi, I see him at a bar we both frequent to listen to live music... and no it's not a gay bar, but a nice little place in Hollywood... he's been seen taking a female friend with him shopping at a pharmacy in Hollywood too, where they walked around with their arms around each other...
When I met him, he was extremely nice and friendly, someone else said he didn't "ping" when they met him, well he didn't ping in my radar either...
