Bret Easton Ellis: "Jeremy Renner comes off as a little, um...gay"

How dare he! Renner is clearly a lesbian.

I read an interview not too long ago (Esquire? GQ?) and it talked about how he and a male friend renovate houses and live in them for a while as they work. They always have a project going and they make a tidy profit- though they do it more for a creative outlet.
There was not one mention of a female love interest- past or present.

Perhaps Bret Easton Ellis is in a bitchy move because James Deen hasn't let him get into his pants yet.

Why? So Renner can be the "faux" man to countless idiot females that buy movie tickets thinking they have a "chance" with him. Please grow a pair.

God he's obsessed.
Don't get me wrong, his gaydar is impeccable. But he's like the posterboy for "bizarre obsession with pointing out other's gayness reveals his own".

He has had a thing for Deen for a while now.

The way Renner refers to Winters as his "brother" makes me suspicious. My little brother, who recently came out (finally!) had a so-called best friend, they shared a one-bedroom apartment, and they even got matching tattoos that said "Brothers Forever." Turns out they were really having a clandestine romance, but we'd suspected all along.

Just FYI, BEE went on a lengthy Twitter campaign a few months ago to defend the roommate of the gay Rutgers student who killed himself after said roommate outed him. So yes, BEE is just as big an asshole as ever.

I don't mean to sound cruel, but Winters is SOOO fugly. He's literary a 2 out of 10. Maybe I just need to see a better pic of him. I hope Renner comes clean - who says you can't be an action hero and have a boyfriend? Culture will probably shift to the point where straight guys having boyfriends is a status thing - "Yeah, I'm so secure in my sexuality that I have a boyfriend and we have sex." I mean, Western Culture's take on homosexuality *is* completely culturally constructed.

Either way, you simpering queens fall for it each and every day, instead of properly ignoring this loser drug addict from the 80s.

I wish I had bitter hag Easton Ellis's gaydar. It never crossed my mind once Renner was gay during The Hurt Locker. Oh dear.
I think Jeremy is a good actor, but it's really unfortunate he had that spazz out over gay rumours (even Kevin Spacey did this back in the day). It looked at one point he was on the verge of coming out as well, with Colin Farrell giving hints at the Oscars.
I don't mind glass closets and can overlook and respect that, but just stfu and don't go into denial. Makes me not want to like them and root for them. Issuing Tom Cruise-style angry gay denials is the worst, nobody would care otherwise it's not like people want to out you. Wentworth Miller also did this, ridiculous.
I was also thinking that Ryan Lochte looked like a prettier Renner in some pics.

Renner is totally gay; he even pings a bit in The Avengers. (When Loki is having the mind-controlled Hawkeye plan the raid on Stuttgart, Renner totally prances as Hawkeye picks up his bow.) And Ted C's last Blind Vice ("Freddie Friction") was about Renner picking up guys at parties; in the initial posting he calls "Freddie" "Jeremy" at one point…typo? Or a deliberate attempt to get out of his contract?
Ellis is such an asshole; didn't he just get through saying that Matt Bomer shouldn't be cast in the "50 Shades of Gray" movie because an out gay actor wouldn't be "believable" as being interested in the straight sex scenes. Right, because Bomer would be the first gay actor to play straight. What a fucking idiot.
Whither Jay McInerny?
|by Anonymous||reply 24||08/14/2012|
Oh yes, I keep forgetting to add that one to my queue R20. I hadn't heard of Renner back then before his breakthrough, I'm more interested in his hot friend Sam Rockwell.

Ellis is right, Bomer's sexuality would be a distraction from that part. It's all about sex. You don't think people on Datalounge would mock it? It's one thing to play a straight character in a conventional story -- he does it in White Collar doesn't he? -- but I think in a story all about sex and desire his real life sexuality would bleed into the role, whether we like it or not.

A Really good actor , gay, or not, could do it convincingly
|by Anonymous||reply 37||08/14/2012|
R36 BEE is obviously a bitter old troll.
After he wrote about 35 twitter messages about how Bomer can't play the part in the movie, that's yet to be made based on 50 Shades of Grey, because he's so gay, because he's a married gay, because he's gay, gay , gay.
He then went after Neil Patrick Harris again for being gay & too gay to play a womanizer.
Then he said The Big Bang Theory was too Gay
After that he went after Modern Family ==not progressively gay
And the latest, attacking the show THE New Normal
So R36 I don't think Ellis has anything relevant to say about anything. He's the man who played coy about his own sexuality for years with his quote about sometimes I say I'm straight, sometimes bi, sometime gay. And then recently oh I may have dated guys and gals when younger. He's a fucked up mess about his own sexuality so I doubt he has anything relevant to say about anything to do with White Collar.

Bret had nothing to do with the film American Psycho. Marry Harron Directed and wrote the script with Guinevere turner. Bret was NEVER in the running to write 50 Shades of Grey. He rehashes the same old tired 80's LA stories over and over again. and has no concept of a third act. He is also totally gay, and works very hard to find people even more damaged than he is to date and pay. He did get to blow Kip Pardue though, during Rules of Attraction.
