Jeremy Renner: Sometimes I just want to have fun & be unconscious


Try and tell me that this little pocket lover isn’t the cutest thing you’ve ever seen. Look at Jeremy Renner! Oh, such a cutie. He’s on the September cover of Men’s Health Magazine to promote his supporting role in The Town, which is probably the one film I’m most excited about seeing this fall. The Town was directed by (and stars) Ben Affleck, and Renner and Jon Hamm are also in it! It’s a hot guy buffet. There’s gunplay too! Mm…

Anyway, I digress. Renner, Men’s Health, cutie, adorable. In the interview excerpts, he talks about he’s not interested in being “tabloid”. Then maybe he shouldn’t have boned Jessica Simpson? I mean, I don’t fault him for that move or anything, but her public career at this point is just being in the tabloids.

Academy Award nominee Jeremy Renner has really taken off in Hollywood. The handsome “Hurt Locker” star is on the cover of the new Men’s Health and shares how he started his acting career on stage with “nineteen years of emotional repression” pouring out of him, which led to his emotional and powerful turn in 2010’s Best Picture. Later this year he can be seen in Ben Affleck’s next directorial effort, “The Town.”

But, aside from acting, Jeremy just wants to stay true to himself. “My plan isn’t to be able to do what I want to do when I want to do it, and not because I have to,” he told the mag. “I call it my ‘pull-chute’ plan. That’s a military thing, you know … time to pull chute, like, time to kind of float and enjoy the view.”

He’d rather just not be in tabloids and chooses to be fearless and live for himself instead.

“I don’t need some tabloid running off with something just because I got drunk some night and showed my ass to the bartender,” he said. “I made a very conscious decision to be fearless, to live a life of fear-freeness. I decided to do something every day I was afraid of.”

Like? “I swam with sharks,” he recalled of a scuba trip off California’s southern coast. “I was terrified of sharks and I’m still terrified of sharks, but at least I was taking action—and not being squelched by something I don’t know about.”

In addition, he says “sometimes I just kind of want to have fun and be unconscious for a while.”

Jeremy kind of sounds like a cool boyfriend, for me at least. He likes to go swimming, he likes to get naked in bars and he likes to be unconscious. We’re peas in a pod! Ah, my little pocket boyfriend. Plus, I’m not that tall, so maybe if I got him so lifts, he could tower over me. He might like that. Or maybe he’ll just stick to maybe-boning Charlize Theron?

Here’s the trailer for The Town again. Jesus, this looks so GOOD.

    Any man who wears two rings (and one of ‘em’s NOT a wedding ring…), on the same hand no less, is wearing two too many.

  2. PrettyTarheel says:

    There is something Sean Penn-y @ him…perhaps it’s the forehead ridges.
    I’m sorry, he just doesn’t do it for me.

  3. canadianchick says:

    He’s a cutie, yes The Town looks interesting. Jeremy is good at absorbing the character in roles whereas does anyone else find Ben Affleck too self conscious for the camera?

  4. Dorothy says:

    Nope, doesn’t do it for me.

  5. Katie says:

    There is something about him that I find sexy, although the shortness is a shame. He’s a very good actor. I also can’t wait to see The Town. Hoping Blake Lively doesn’t totally ruin it.

  6. Riley says:

    He doesn’t sound very smart,at least in this interview. Most of the guys I know love to go out in the boat, go scuba diving, and then come home and drink a few too many brews. It is how we spend our Saturdays in the summer in the south.

  7. gracie says:

    I mean seriously…how can that not be a great movie?? I can’t wait to see it.

  8. meme says:

    ah, there he is MY IMAGINARY BOYFRIEND, Jeremy Renner. Come onna mah house, Jer, and we get get unconscious and haz funz together. Cannot wait for The Town. Except for Blake Lively’s part, the movie looks great.

  9. krissy_kitty says:

    His hands are a deal breaker for me… Too bad, I’ve tried to like him…He seems like a nice enough fellow, I just can’t get past the hands… Is that shallow? ;)

  10. Kitten says:

    Hot. Wish he was taller. I can’t tell from the pics about his hands. Does he have the short, fat fingers and small palms? Dealbreaker, ladies.

    Also can’t wait for The Town. Reppin Charlestown for all the wrong reasons! Woo-hoo! Between “The Town” and “Oxy-morons” poor Chucktown can’t catch a break.

  11. Pleister says:

    Looking forward to ”The Town”. Jon Hamm, yum. Jeremy Renner isn’t too bad looking either.

  12. lol says:

    I thought this guy was gay or at least BI.

    He doesn’t want to be in tabloids well saying what he did he surley will be watched even more.

    You think he boned SIMPSON.. lol not on your life. He didn’t get a shot at it.. he tried

    Good actor but great man NO. I know.

  13. Chris says:

    I like this dude but I don’t think he’s conventionally hot. I like him because he comes across as being a fairly genuine person which is kinda ironic given that he’s an actor.

    How tall is he?

  14. Jelly says:

    Thank you Thank you Thank You. Love me some JR. Can’t wait for “The Town”. What’s wrong with his hands? He’s got great hands with long fingers just the way I like em. Still not buying the whole Jessica Simpson thing. Wasn’t that a Daddy Simpson PR thing? I’d still love to have fun and get unconscious with him.

  15. Me says:

    lol: You’re an idiot, he never tried to have sex with her. His mom had the same hairdresser as she, that’s why they talked in the first place. If anything Jessica was lucky to even get the opportunity to talk to someone like him.

  16. Dogtown says:

    Love Jeremy Renner, as a person and as an actor. Don’t know where people saw him boning Charlize or Jessica, obviously you believe anything in the tabloids. His sexuality is unknown to the public, just the way he likes it. Focus on his work not whose in his bed.

  17. Acne seems to have a significant link inherited , is expected to sequence the DNA of the genome will help isolate the mechanisms that influence body acne more precisely, possibly coming to get a more satisfying. (Take DNA samples from people with acne and people who do not have and that a computer search for the statistics of the main differences of the genes between the two groups). Anyway, in the 2005 genome sequencing is still not cheap and it may take decades to be. It is also possible that gene therapy can be used to alter the DNA of the skin.
