Jeremy Renner Gets Heated Over Sexual Orientation: 'It's Not F--king True': [ send to a friend ]
In a new interview, Jeremy Renner loses his patience with longstanding rumors that he's secretly in the closet.
"I want my personal life to be personal, and it's not f--king true," says the 'The Avengers' star. "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--king, and shove that in the megaphone throughout your neighborhood? How does that feel? It's none of your goddamn business."
The actor recalls a story when he was called a 'f-g' for wearing a scarf at a bar on Christmas Eve several years ago.
"This guy chokes me with the scarf I was wearing," Renner says. "Then he shoved my sister and I got behind him and I choked him out -- put him to sleep." But, he claims, "I'm not violent."
Renner, who also appeared in 'Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol', is set to take over the Jason Bourne franchise from Matt Damon with 'Bourne Legacy'.
"It was a game-changer in anonymity," he says of his thought process before agreeing to the role. "I had to consider how this was going to affect everyone I love -- especially myself."
"The star thing, the celebrity thing is new to me. I don't want to be a good celebrity, a good f--king star. I want to be a good human being."
The actor says he's been in two long-term relationships. He says the last one, which was four-years long, ended when his girlfriend decided to get into acting.
"That was part of the issue," he says. "I was going through the Hurt Locker campaign and she's like, 'Where do I get headshots?'"
