Jeremy Renner Confronts Gay Rumors

jeremy renner

Rumours have been flying around for ages now that Jeremy Renner is a fan of the dick on the low, but no one’s ever actually been able to offer any proof – and while I welcome speculation and discussion, I’m not a fan of forcibly outing someone if that’s not what they’re feeling. Anyway, Renner himself has heard the chit chat and he responded to it in a new interview with Playboy.

“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.’ 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?”

I never thought I’d say this, but uh… I’m actually on Renner’s side, here. I mean, I do think it’s a cop-out when people are acting like they’re being shamed. No one is saying “Jeremy Renner is gay and that’s disgusting!”, they’re just saying he’s gay. Maybe he’s got his own prejudices that are leading him to project. At the same time, though, I do think the obsession people have with “outing” celebrities is a little weird. If sexuality doesn’t matter, why DOES it matter so much? I guess that’s just the society we live in, but whatevs.

To pump up his hetero factor, Renner also shared the story of how he lost his virginity:

“My story was awful, just like everybody else’s. It was just this random, uncomfortable thing, and I was so nervous. I remember my dad’s sex talk was ‘Son, no glove, no love.’ He opened a drawer. ‘Here are the condoms.’ But I have no idea what she thinks. Maybe she goes to the movies and thinks, Okay, Hawkeye was my first. Or she could have a voodoo doll of me, for all I know.”

Wow. Exciting.

For the record, I do think Renner probably likes a bit of the peen, but it’s whatever. I care far less about what he does in bed with whom than I do about the fact that he’s a raging asshole.

Jeremy Renner Continues To Insist That Black Widow Is A Slut

jeremy renner

Remember how last week, Jeremy Renner and Chris Evans had that hilaaaaaarious joke during an interview about what a big slut Black Widow is? People were understandably not happy with the sexist bullshit, and both actors’ reps quickly released statements of apology. Evans is the smart one here and has, thankfully, not said anything else as offensive since. Renner, however, is too big a dickhead to be contained, so he hit up Conan last night to re-insist that he meant what he said and dig himself even deeper into the hole of asshole-dom.

“It was a joke — off-color or whatever — but yeah, I’m unapologetic about a lot of things and I got in a lot of Internet trouble!” he said on the talk show. “I guess that’s a thing now you can get in.”

“I was asked the question like, ‘So, you know, Black Widow’s been linked to Hawkeye, Iron Man, Bruce Banner, and Captain America,’” Renner, who plays the Avengers’ Hawkeye continued, naming other characters from the action film. “‘So what do you think about that?’ I’m like, well I said, ‘It sounds like she’s a slut.’”

“Now, mind you, I was talking about a fictional character and fictional behavior, but, Conan, if you slept with four of the six Avengers, no matter how much fun you had, you’d be a slut,” he added. “Just saying… I’d be a slut!”

Of course, Jamie Renner’s brain is too small to comprehend big concepts, so he doesn’t get that saying shit about women – be they fictional or otherwise – continues to contribute towards a society that still largely treats women like second-class citizens and puts them in boxes, expecting them to act in particular ways. And when they don’t, they’re “bitches” or “sluts” and when some men REALLY don’t like the fact that women aren’t acting how they’re “supposed” to, pretty intense things happen like, you know, rape and domestic violence and sometimes even murder. Of course, I’ll probably have loads of dudes tell me I’m being a “Feminazi” in saying that, but knock yourselves out – that just proves my point.

Oh, and my other point, which is that Jeremy Renner fucking sucks, and thank God his soon-to-be ex-wife got away while she could.

Jeremy Renner And Chris Evans Are Sorry For Calling Black Widow A Slut

chris evans jeremy renner

I’ve never really cared for for Jeremy Renner – he’s always seemed like a complete dick, so this whole thing doesn’t really surprise me. As for Chris Evans, I don’t know who’s really checking for him anyway, so I can’t say whether or not this is particularly out of character. So what’d they do?

In an interview for The Avengers: Age of Ultron with Digital Spy (shouts to DS, my first writing job!), these two dummies were asked a playful question about Black Widow wanting to be in a relationship with both Renner’s Hawkeye and Evans’ Captain America, to which they cracked up into fits of laughter as they explained that Black Widow is “a slut” according to Renner, and “a complete whore” in Evans’ eyes. Keep it classy, guys.

People obviously bugged out about this, because this bullshit language basically needs to be wiped out of our language. Those terms aren’t playful, though they meant it in a playful way. It’s a way to brand women as less than, as trash, to take away their autonomy. And to have men using those words, especially in such a public fashion, is bullshit.

Anyhoo, obviously they’re doing some damage control and had their PR people issue apologies on Thursday:

“Yesterday we were asked about the rumors that Black Widow wanted to be in a relationship with both Hawkeye and Captain America,” Evans said in a statement provided to EW. “We answered in a very juvenile and offensive way that rightfully angered some fans. I regret it and sincerely apologize.”

“I am sorry that this tasteless joke about a fictional character offended anyone,” Renner also said in a statement provided to EW. “It was not meant to be serious in any way. Just poking fun during an exhausting and tedious press tour.”

Okay, anyone notice what an asshole backhanded apology Renner’s is? He had to point out that it was about a fictional character, as if that makes it less offensive, and as if the people who were offended by it were unaware that Black Widow isn’t a real live woman walking the streets.

Look, I’m not saying either of them (well, at least not Evans) made their initial comments to be purposely offensive or because they’re blatant misogynists that hate women. I’m saying that sometimes people don’t understand the effects of what they’re saying until after they’ve said it and they just need to take their foot out of their mouths and say sorry, like Evans did. Renner’s just makes me want to punch him in the mouth more than usual.

Jeremy Renner’s wife is extorting him over a sex tape

jeremy renner sonni pacheco

Jeremy Renner‘s wife, Sonny Pacheco, decided she wanted a divorce a few months back – not that long after they actually got married. The whole situation was a bit bizarre, with Sonni claiming that Jeremy had stolen her passport, birth certificate and social security card and insisting that he return it so they could get their marriage over with. However, things have taken another bizarre turn now, with Jeremy saying that Sonni extorted him over some supposed sex tape if he didn’t follow through on his promise to get her a green card. Yikes.

From TMZ:

Renner is in the middle of a bitter child custody fight over their nearly 2-year-old daughter Ava. Sonni Pacheco’s gunning for primary custody of their child and wants more than $13K a month in child support.

Jeremy has been sharing 50/50 custody since they split up in December.

In Jeremy’s new legal docs — obtained by TMZ — Jeremy says Sonni repeatedly admitted she married him to get a green card and financial stability. He claims she repeatedly told their roommate Jeremy should be nice to her and not fight her on the green card or money issues or she’d release the embarrassing videos to TMZ … By the way, TMZ never spoke with her and we wouldn’t post such videos.

Jeremy says there are multiple issues of bad parenting on Sonni’s part, the worst of which was back in September when he was on location and she left their kid alone in the house for 15 minutes. She went in an Uber to party and never checked to see if someone was at home to care for Ava.

Their roommate filed a declaration saying Sonni smokes and drinks and in fact stopped breast feeding because she felt guilty she was drinking alcohol.

The roommate also claims Sonni did coke during a vacation right after Ava was born.

What the hell? This is so insane. I’m also kind of confused, because how does she have a social security card if she’s not a US citizen? And if Jeremy was happy to end the relationship, why did he want her paperwork? Wouldn’t he WANT her to get deported? I mean, besides the fact that she would take their child with her, of course.

Finally, who on EARTH would ever want to see a Jeremy Renner sex tape? No thank you.

Jeremy Renner’s wife wants a divorce already

jeremy renner sonni pacheco

The last we reported on Jeremy Renner, he was having a baby with his ex-girlfriend, Sonni Pacheco. That was all the way back in 2013, and since then, he actually married her. I’m sure it was true love that was meant to last forever, right? Well, incidentally, Sonni wants out of the marriage less than a year after it started. Uh oh!

From TMZ:

According to docs filed earlier this month, Renner’s wife Sonni Pacheco is seeking the split over irreconcilable differences — but get this … she’s demanding he return her stolen passport, birth certificate and SS card.

The couple just copped to their secret marriage back in September … and every indication is the break-up will be nasty.

In her divorce docs … Pacheco says they have a prenup, but adds it should be torn up because it was based on fraud. There’s no further detail about what she means by “fraud.”

Pacheco wants the moon … she’s asking for spousal support and physical custody of their 1-year-old daughter, Ava Berlin. She’s also looking to use the Range Rover until the smoke clears, and for Renner to pony up her rent and moving expenses.

Huh, well that seems a bit crazy. Where the hell is the girl’s passport, birth certificate and social security card? What’s the “fraud” situation all about? What’s with Jeremy Renner’s hair… like, seriously? So many unanswered questions…

Jeremy Renner and His (Ex?) Girlfriend Person Had a Baby!

jeremy renner

Jeremy Renner and Sonni Pacheco – a woman with whom he certainly had sex but may or may not have ever actually otherwise been involved with – have had a baby! Hurrah! It was announced on Friday that the pair had become parents to a little girl named Ava Berlin Renner on March 28, with Renner’s publicist issuing the following statement:

“They are beyond thrilled. Mother and daughter are doing great.”

The only thing that’s missing here is an “over the moon” and I think the circle would be complete.

Jeremy’s not the first star to knock a lady up that he’s not actually with, and it’s no surprise, given his penchant for popping Viagra. An “insider” told US Weekly that he’s going to be a “great dad” and added at the time that Renner was trying to keep shit under wraps but Sonni wasn’t hiding the fact that she was expecting a child. Would be kind of hard to hide the fact that you’re growing a person inside you, but whatever. I guess it would upset him since this is the same guy who broke up with girlfriend Jess Macallan because she wanted to be an actress and took all the attention off wittle bitty Jeremy:

“That was part of the issue,” Renner explained of Macallan, who is now married. “I was going through the Hurt Locker campaign and she’s like, ‘Where do I get headshots?’”

Anyway, here’s to the “thrilled” non-couple!

Quotables: Don’t Worry, Jeremy Renner Hates the Kardashians, Too

photo of jeremy renner hates the kardashians pictures

“Oh, all those ridiculous people with zero talent who spend their lives making sure everybody knows their name. Those stupid, stupid people.”

This would be, yes, the very same Jeremy Renner who takes Viagra when he clearly means to take Ambien, and who has been rumored to be one of Tom Cruise’s alleged many gay partners. And this statement, guys, makes up for all of the silliness of “accidentally” taking a penis-engorging drug on international flights, and *almost* makes up for the indubitably poor taste in men if he did, indeed, have a hot, sexual tryst with … ugh, Tom Cruise.

He hates the Kardashians, guys, and that makes up for almost anything*.

*Almost. The Tom Cruise thing? There are way, way hotter and more appealing closeted gay men out there than the allegedly-gay Tom Cruise, come on.
