Jeremy Renner 'Nauseated' by Attention to His Personal Life: Details

Renner

Jeremy Renner is disgusted by unwanted attention to his personal life and his housemate and best friend Kristoffer Winters, whom he refers to as his "brother", according to Details:

It's not surprising that in Renner's dating vacuum, the worst bottom-feeding websites have suggested there's something more to his relationship with his pal and sometime housemate Winters. The unwanted attention nauseates him, even as he understands its causes. "I don't pay attention to that horseshit. Build 'em up to bring 'em down?" he says of celebrity culture. "I'm not going on that train, my son. I'm not going on that train. I'll walk. I'll take a bike." He lets out a laugh that sounds like a lawn mower starting up. "I'd rather just not be popular."

Renner doesn't date because he doesn't have time:

When Renner says he's given up his life for his job, this is what he means: "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."

Now Playing
You probably never suspected it while watching tiny 11 year old Anna Paquin hyperventilate with Oscar in hand in March of 1994 that she would one day become such an emblem of romantic envy on screens. Firs there was her touch deprived Rogue in the X-Men series, dreaming of the kind of soapy relationships all the other mutants were enjoying. These days she has unbelievably hot naked vampires fighting over her on magazine covers. And in THE ROMANTICS, Katie Holmes wants to trade places with her because she's nabbed Josh Duhamel. Not bad for a gap toothed girl with a grating voice (I kid. I'll always have a soft spot for the star, The Piano being only one of the greatest movies ever made.) I can't recommend The Romantics, though, which I caught at Sundance. Paquin aside, the movie about post collegiate friends coupling off, is hampered by bizarre casting: Josh Duhamel and Katie Holmes as poetry and philosophy loving intellectuals? Er...

Also Opening: Sexy Romain Duris and Mrs. Johnny Depp Vanessa Paradis star in the French romantic comedy HEARTBREAKER; Milla Jovovich is still fighting zombies in RESIDENT EVIL: AFTERLIFE. Maybe she's not very good at it since she's been trying to defeat them for eight years now.; Casey Affleck's celebrity studded documentary (mockumentary?) I'M STILL HERE follows Joaquin Phoenix's surreal career immolation as it happens.

Andy has previously posted photos and concept art of Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Chris Evans as Captain America - each will see their own respective movie released next year. Yesterday, the two Chrises were at Comic-Con where the rest of the cast of the Joss Whedon-directed movie adaptation of The Avengers was revealed.

And judging from the photo above, Jeremy Renner, who will play Hawkeye, is either a big fan of Robert Downey Jr, Iron Man, or both.

Watch the one-by-one introductions, AFTER THE JUMP.

Meredith Vieira Sorry for Remarks About Male 'Hurt Locker' Hugs

Meredith Vieira has apologized for remarks on the Today show to Hurt Locker star Anthony Mackie. On the post-Oscar show, Vieira asked Mackie if his hugs with co-star Jeremy Renner were something she needed to be "worried about."

Todayhl Said Vieira in a statement to GLAAD: “During an interview with the cast of the hurt locker on Monday, I turned to actor Anthony Mackie and made a joke about 'man hugging' in reference to a hug he and fellow actor Jeremy Renner had shared a few weeks earlier on our air. It was meant to be lighthearted, but some were offended by what they believed to be a homophobic comment. That was never my intent, but that doesn’t matter. Words are extremely powerful and should never be chosen lightly, even in a lighthearted moment. I apologize to any and all that I offended. My support of the gay and lesbian community is longstanding and well documented. It has not and will never waver.”

In related news, the National Enquirer engaged in what Boy Culture calls a "passive-aggressive" outing of Renner.
