National Enquirer Says Jeremy Renner Is Hiding In The Gay Locker

National Enquirer Says Jeremy Renner Is Hiding In The Gay Locker-photo

The National Enquirer is making claims that The Hurt Locker star Jeremy Renner is a closeted homosexual. The tabloid's evidence seems a little slim: they claim that the actor's love of musical theater is a good sign that the Oscar nominee is a friend of Mary (because a professional actor liking theater is simply so gay!) and they found a quote from a former acting coach who talked about not meeting Renner's hypothetical gay beau, which just makes things more confusing. Basically, all they have supporting their outing of Renner is gay stereotypes and someone who never got to meet a man who may or may not have been Renner's boyfriend at the time.

Then again, the Enquirer has been right about a few things (Meredith Baxter being a lesbian, John Edwards being maybe the worst husband ever, and a few other things we're sure) so maybe he is gay? Who knows! There are plenty of closeted gay actors trolling around West Hollywood, hoping to go unnoticed. Then again, gay rumors about male actors are as commonplace in the media as beautiful female actresses talking about how "awkward" and "ugly" they were in high school. If you are male and a professional actor, your sexuality is going to be called into question at least once during your career.

If Renner isn't gay we just hope he doesn't take a page from Gerard Butler's Book of Squashing Gay Rumors by becoming the human embodiment of HPV. No one wins in that scenario.

    If someone knows him personally they won't be commenting on an article on him. That's just fact and a bad friend. And the only reason anyone should care about his sexuality is if they were interested in dating him

    Tina, he's gay b/c of those reasons listed in the article? Seriously? If these people were so good at outing people you'd think we'd have pictures, video, something more than disgusting stereotypes perpetuating the very reason why the word "gay" is still looked on as negative. I don't know the man, but I know those that do. He bats hetero.

    It's Friend of Dorothy, not Friend of Mary! A gay man IS a Mary, not her friend!

    What I hate is that it would even be an issue or cause a stir if anyone was gay. Why should that even matter? But for the record, The Enquirer sucks balls. For the few things they've gotten right, they've gotten a few million more so wrong. And trusting them as a reliable source is like trusting Wikipedia. And personally I don't think he's gay. The fact that the Enquirer puts stuff like that up just shows how sleazy they are, not because it deals with homosexuality, but that they'd even speculate on something that's not of their goddamn business.

    First of all, if he's gay, he's gay. Doesn't change the fact that he's a good actor. Second of all, that sucks if he is, because he is soooo fine!! lol Haha, may suck for you, cowgirl, if he is, but it certainly wouldn't suck for me. Scratch that. It won't suck for either of us, no matter his sexuality. It's not like we're ever going to meet him anyway. :)
