Jeremy Renner's Shot at Playing Hero

I reaaaaaaaaaaaaalllllly hope The Bourne Legacy does well.

Highlights from the article:

[Re: Avengers]

"He's an amazing fighter -- his fight work is wonderful: precise, heroic, and you seldom have to double him," says director Joss Whedon. "But one day he just turned wrong and his whole body shut down. He could not do anything. He was in enormous pain, and we had to shut that sequence down and shoot it a couple of weeks later." (Explains Renner: "I tore the muscle from my back to my shoulder. I got chewed up pretty good.")

[I cannot WAIT for The Avengers!]


He tells the story of how, on Christmas Eve a few years back, when he was with his family in a bar, "This guy chokes me with the scarf I was wearing. He called me a fag 'cause I was wearing a scarf! Then he shoved my sister and I got behind him and I choked him out -- put him to sleep." Without a trace of irony, he adds, "I'm not violent."



Most recently came the death in March of his 8-month-old French bulldog, Franklin, of a heart attack. For a moment, Renner's eyes go moist because the puppy touches on the singular problem that has most bedeviled him the past two years. Says Renner, "He was my solution for being so lonely."

[The entire internetz will volunteer to help Jeremy with this problem.]


"I want my personal life to be personal, and it's not f--ing true," he says of the suppositions. "And I don't care if you're talking about things that are true, you're still talking about my personal life. How about I go peek in your window, take what underwear you wore last night, whose husband you were f--ing, and shove that in the megaphone throughout your neighborhood? How does that feel? It's none of your goddamn business."

Notes Renner, who becomes passionate discussing this, but never angry or unpleasant: "Any person I touched during the Hurt Locker campaign, I was f--ing. They had me f--ing Kristoffer Winters, my brother," as he describes his live-in business partner, who restores houses with him. "Goddamn, I must be busy!"

[He sounds just like I imagined he would IRL, lol.]


With his usual dispassionate nature, he adds: "The star thing, the celebrity thing, is new to me. I don't want to be a good celebrity, a good f--ing star. I want to be a good human being."
