Jeremey Renner: Women Take No. 2 Seat To My Job
“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.”
Despite his loner mentaility, Jeremy, 40, has been romantically connected to Jessica Simpson and Scarlett Johansson over the years.
Jeremy’s star is rising as performs alongside Tom Cruise in the upcoming Mission Impossible, but this too-cool-for-school actor doesn’t care about the notoriety. He told Details of celebrity culture:
“I don’t pay attention to that horseshit. Build ‘em up to bring ‘em down? I’m not going on that train, my son. I’m not going on that train. I’ll walk. I’ll take a bike. [Renner laughs.] I’d rather just not be popular.”
He added of his movie choices, “I’m blessed to have cool roles in these big movies. Because nothing against Transformers, but thank God I don’t have to do a monologue to a robot. I don’t know how Shia [LaBeouf], God bless him, does that.”
