Closeted actor Jeremy Renner hates gay rumors

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

by Anonymousreply 2711/22/2011

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.

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.

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.

by Anonymousreply 6911/22/2011'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.

But couldn't he have found a nicer way to deny the rumors. Saying it nauseates him, nauseates me.

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.

re: 113... 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...

I very much doubt he'd be in the closet if he wasn't a movie star. His niche is turning out to be mostly action films, the genre with probably the most homophobic viewership. So no wonder he's playing it straight.
