Jeremy Renner knocked up his ex-girlfriend & she still lives with him too

I was never on the “Jeremy Renner is totes gay” bandwagon. I get that the “evidence” is that he has a close business relationship and personal friendship with that guy he calls his “brother” in interviews. But I always thought Jeremy was into girls. Not just into girls, but that he was probably kind of an under-the-radar womanizer, especially after he got super-famous. And now here’s some evidence of not only his raging heterosexuality, but of the idea that he’s a love ‘em and leave ‘em kind of guy: Jeremy Renner got an ex-girlfriend pregnant.

Jeremy Renner shared some big news with Eva Longoria on the smoking patio at the Golden Globes Jan. 13: He’s going to be a father! The Bourne Legacy actor, 42, “was saying, ‘I’m going to fly in when her water breaks,’” two witnesses tell Us Weekly exclusively.

“Then Eva said, ‘I’m so blown away.’” Shocking, but true. Multiple sources confirm to Us that an ex-girlfriend of the actor is due to give birth next month. “they used to date but it wasn’t serious,” explains one insider, adding that the expectant mom is currently living in Renner’s L.A. home.”

The Hollywood hunk is “being ultra-secretive about it,” the insider adds, “but she has been going on about her life and not hiding it.” Last April, the resolutely private actor shut down longstanding false rumors that he was gay, telling The Hollywood Reporter, “I want my personal life to be personal, and it’s not f-cking true.”

The Oscar-nominated actor also spoke to the magazine about his four-year relationship with ex-girlfriend, actress Jess Macallan. They met when Macallan was 23 and working at a film festival in Florida; she later decided to become an actress, which contributed to their split in 2010.

“That was part of the issue,” Renner explained of Macallan, who is now married. “I was going through the Hurt Locker campaign and she’s like, ‘Where do I get headshots?’”

[From Us Weekly]

Wait, so is Us Weekly saying that this Jess Macallan woman is the one who’s pregnant? Or is this just further evidence of his under-the-radar studness? Unknown. Anyway, Jeremy Renner is going to be a father. How does that make you feel? I feel like… it’s okay. Knocking someone up and still considering her your “ex-girlfriend” but letting her live in your house? For some reason, that seems like something Jeremy Renner would do. It doesn’t some weird to me at all.

    men in hollywood didn’t know how to use a condom or what ?

  2. Post-Its says:

    I hope the kid doesn’t inherit his creepy facial hair.

  3. Mia 4S says:

    US Weekly tends to check the big stuff (see Minicooper-gate) so I guess congratulations are in order! He’s crazy but seems like a good guy, they’ll be well taken care of.

  4. Peanut says:

    He is the opposite of hot in these photos.

  5. Tiffany27 says:

    Is it that one brunette with the huge boobs he was photographed with?

  6. MARIA says:

    it says the ex is married so no, I guess it’s someone else

  7. Chicagogurl17 says:

    It actually seems like the good guy thing to do. Even if there’s no love loss there’s still co-parenting.

    • T.C. says:

      She’s having his baby and he is putting her up in his house. That’s supposed to be a GOOD thing. Better than just sending her a check. Means he is a decent guy.

    • Kate says:

      Yeah, that was my thought as well. New babies are hard work. Late pregnancy is miserable. Nobody else is ever going to love your kid as much as you do, and the early months are very special. This seems responsible to me – you can’t co-parent a breastfed newborn that well from different properties.

      He is not remotely attractive to me, but this is definitely doing the decent thing, IMO.

      EDIT: just read the surrogacy theories, which in fairness might also be accurate? Suppose time will tell. If she is really an in situ ex it won’t stay below the radar forever.

  8. StrawberryGirl says:

    *whispers* doesn’t he bat for the other team?

  9. carrie says:


    i think about every blind item on his sexuality LOL but to be father or married or have a regular girlfriend never killed the gay rumors.
    Hello Vin Diesel! Hello Georges Clooney! hello Leo!….

  10. V4Real says:

    I love me some Renner but just b/c he is having a baby doesn’t mean he is completely straight. You know he could be bisexual and my sick mind finds that hot for some reason. Not that I’m 100% into bi guys but if it’s Renner and RDJ sign me up please and through in some Hugh Jackman for the hell of it.

  11. lori says:

    Maybe it is that girl in that picture posted everywhere last fall?

  12. Cody says:

    Maybe she is an ex-girlfriend or maybe she is a surrogate for his business partner and Jeremy. This is just an excuse for the media, so everybody will leave them alone.

  13. Helen says:

    He needs to stop it with the creepy facial hair. I love him, but not when he looks like some kind of perv / creep.

  14. someone says:

    That mustache isn’t doing him any favors

  15. Tulip says:

    Eh, so maybe he’s bi. But best wishes for a healthy baby:)

  16. Eve says:

    We call that type of moustache (second picture) “p*ssy’s skirting board” in Brazil.

  17. MoxyLady007 says:

    Does anyone else seem him being a crazy intense love his baby like a papa grizzly bear kind of dad? Because that’s what I am hoping for. :) awesome.

  18. Iggles says:

    Nope! Still think he’s gay.

    Gay men can get a woman pregnant. Heck, Elton John and his husband have a kid. Plus, many closeted actors have married AND fathered children with their spouses.

    Jessicas Simpson’s dad had 2 kids and was married to his wife for 25 years!

  19. ramona says:

    Renner is one of those dudes whose hotness increases exponentially simply by putting sunglasses on his face.

  20. Justyna says:

    I’ve never got the gay vibes from him and I’m usually good with guessing. I guessed most of the famous gay guys in the first second I saw them on-screen and I believe some of the blind items about closeted celebs but I never believed in those about Renner. The same is with Bradley Cooper. When I see them I get the “I’m a selfish womanizing creep who only loves his mommy” vibe, not “I’m so into boys” vibe.

  21. ZigZagZoey says:

    Yup, he REALLY doesn’t like being called gay, so he does this.
    I have always thought he is damn ugly.
    He almost looks like Mr Bean in that first pic. GAG.
    He just seems incredibly desperate to become a really big “movie star” to me.
    He does not seem like he would be nice in any way if you met him.
    I could be wrong….JMO

  22. The Original Mia says:

    Happy for him and the woman. Whatever works for them. They aren’t in love, so why pretend. They can co-parent without living with each other.

    Never bought the gay rumors. He looks like a p*ssy hound & his mother hinted that was true on the red carpet during his Oscar season.

  23. L says:

    As for the house thing-he flips houses as a side thing. From what I understand he owns a bunch of places in LA, so I didn’t find that part as weird.

  24. the original bellaluna says:

    Is having a kid with your ex “a thing” now? Because we’ve got JJ, and I just read about another guy who had a kid with HIS ex. WTF? (And is birth control unheard of amongst this ilk? Do the words “safe sex” mean nothing?)

    Considering how many homes H-Weird-types own, and how infrequently they reside in them, the whole “she’s living in his house” thing doesn’t mean a whole hell of a lot.

  25. mln76 says:

    I just don’t think the gossip world has any credibility when it comes to sexuality. I mean John Travolta sure but there seems to be a very clear motive for the blind gossip sites to make stuff up and once one person says so and so is gay it snowballs. I am not naive enough to believe there aren’t many closeted actors but I am also not gulible enough to believe every blind item.

  26. RobN says:

    Why’s he doing the creepy Hitler pose in the first photo?

    He gives me a weird, creepy vibe. I don’t care if he’s gay or not, that vibe crosses all lines.

  27. Patrice says:

    Yet another story of some Hollywood actor/tress who is pregnant up or got someone pregnant who they were “casually dating” i.e. just hooking up with.

    Seriously though, what is wrong with these people?? I mean, does no one value their sexual health anymore? I’m sure there will be some who’ will argue that “they could have been using protection that failed” (yada yada) but I’m pretty sure that my friends and I (male and female) can’t the only people in the world who are very careful about protecting ourselves and *somehow* manage(d) to remain STD and baby free until we decide(d) (with our commited partners) that we’re ready to start a family.

    There have just been way too many of these stories about “aspiring” whatevers getting pregnant by famous men lately for it all to be a huge coincidence: Jude Law; James Marsden; Ryan Phillippe; etc. (This little blurb didn’t refer to Jeremy’s ex as such but I’m sure she’ll be labled an “aspiring model/actress/photographer” in the near future.) And yes, I believe wholeheartedly that BOTH parties are equally responsible for their own reproductive health.

    H’Wood must just a petri dish of veneral disease at this point, right? How could it not be? If all these actors/actresses/musicians are sleeping together and making babies with random people they “casually/briefly dated” then one would think that babies would be the least of their problems (not that I think the babies themselves are a problem). You know what I mean! :) (Could it possibly be an ego thing with actors? Do they get their jollies from making babies with women they barely know? I’m just trying to make sense of it and I honestly can’t.)

  28. Malificent says:

    Lending out your house is cool. But the “I’ll fly in when her water breaks?” Offering to be present at the first and the last five minutes of a pregnancy isn’t impressing me. I hope he doesn’t think that he can also parent in 5-minute increments. Whether or not he and the ex are together as a couple is irrelevant — it doesn’t lessen his obligations as a parent. (Although I might cut him some slack if he agreed ahead of time to be a donor for her.)

  29. hmm says:

    So now his partner who also live with him, is living with his “ex-gilfriend”. I’m still calling gay on this.

  30. Hubbahun says:

    He is yum (althogh I agree he didn’t look his best this weekend but he had a very busy week…no, honestly I’m not a stalker :D ).

    As for this story, it was based on someone overhearing something at a party? I don’t buy it for a second – in dec, in response to the tragedy at Newtown he put this on his Twitter: “remind me to home-school my child if I ever have one…so sad for all those poor parents and families..”

    So….hmmmm. Not convinced.

    And if it is true – no method of birth control is 100% so enough with the moralistic judgement.

  31. blonde on the dock says:

    He looks like a pug dog. I apologize to all pug dog owners.

  32. lola lola says:

    I didn’t think he was gay until I read that before he was an actor, he was a makeup artist for years and years. Sorry kids, he’s gay. Dang lucky gay community.

  33. aston martin says:

    Huh. I just watched Hurt Locker the other night for the first time, and THE LAST vibe he gave off was a gay one. Well, except for drunkenly riding that other guy like a horse. BUT that was in the SCRIPT. :)

    Seriously, though, I need to stop believing what I see in terms of equating an actor’s homo- or heterosexuality based on how they seem on film. It’s super immature of me, but I still do it. And then get all surprised when I find out Zachary Quinto is gay so therefore his white hot chemistry with Zoe Saldana/Uhura wasn’t REAL hahaha. What am I, 12?

    PS that really happened. Also, I have no idea how I did not know he was gay in real life. :)

    • TG says:

      I know what you mean, for the most part when I see an actor on screen, I don’t think about their sexuality, but I saw Renner on SNL and the moment he walked out on stage it was so obvious he was gay and I was thinking the opposite as you that in real life he looks completely gay but in film he doesn’t. It isn’t our business anyway, but I guess I can’t help with all the intrigue and the lengths celebs go to to trick the public or throw us off the scent is amazing.

  34. Roo84 says:

    Dammit, somebody beat me to the punch! I was actively hoping to be his babymama.

  35. Bubulle says:

    Jeremy Renner and his long time BF are having a baby via surrogate is more likely.

  36. Memphis says:

    First- when did he get so creepy looking? Hopefully that’s just bad photos…if not then his hotness seems to be dwindling at an alarming rate.

    Secondly- A “overheard” conversation isn’t much of an exclusive -but if its true- Congrats. At least it seems he isn’t being a di&k about it.

  37. HotSauce says:

    I’m just UGH and SIGH – not going to lie, I’m kinda disappointed.

  38. Sam x says:

    Well this is random and surprising news. It doesn’t matter how the child was conceived, as long he/she is loved and wanted by its parents that’s what matters. Last thing it needs is to be another child stuck in the middle of a Gabriel Aubry/Halle Berry type of situation. I guess congrats!

    I think he’s hot in an unconventional way, he looked mighty fine in The Avengers!

  39. Reese says:

    Wait someone clear this up for me, is this story for REAL or not? It all says that he was overheard at a party. Has anything been confirmed or are people going by an annonymous source? If it is true though I think he will be a good father.

  40. Aud says:

    Gay or not, I don’t care. He is so not leading man material.

  41. sandra says:

    E! news hosts just confirmed it and I guess its true.

    I always has a suspicious feeling he couldn’t keep it in his pants for 2 seconds and always being sooo private.

    Sadly some still don’t think about STD’s or pregancy. Doing it
    ‘raw dog’ (no condoms) seems hotter then the baby comes then its not so hot.

    maybe this is the reason he isn’t married. Better to love’em and leave’em than to stay around just to break your heart multiple times? There ain’t nothing worse to watch someone you love cheat on you and they don’t even care.


  42. GByeGirl says:

    I don’t think that he looks as creepy as he acts. His eyes just seem so dead and expressionless. He fails to “connect” and people think he’s artsy. Whatever. His scenes with Scarlett Johansen in the Avengers were so dull and lifeless they actually made me laugh out loud at the theater. I feel as though he is actually her twin brother.

  43. Fangirl says:

    Wow , when i read this soon after it was posted , i thought WTF ??? Seriously , in this day and age where we can prevent pregnancy …. anyhow , thought he had his head screwed on straight , but i guess not. Kinda liked him as Hawkeye and Aaron Cross in Bourne. now , not so much… i dont know what to think of this… kinda weird , living with ur ex , raising ur kid . Then u date someone , and she has to knock on the front door and ur ex and kid answer , AWKWARD !!! Daddy’s going on his date , wave bye at the door…. huh ???

  44. Snowpea says:

    Is EVERYBODY in Hollywood a closeted gay? (This is a real question).

    Since becoming a full blown gossip hound (reading daily CB, Lainey, Michael K, then Daily Fail, Just Jared and TMZ when I’ve run out of material ; ) I ahve discovered that these people are all rumoured to be gay:

    Rande Gerber and Cindy C (see below)

    George Clooney (apparently Rande and him are longtime lovers and Cindy is a lesbian and SHE chooses GC’s lady friends cos they are actually HER lovers!)

    Matt Damon

    Tom Cruise/David Miscavige

    Jeremy Renner

    John Travolta

    Zac Efron

    Taylor Lautner

    These I TOTALLY believe.

    God, it must be so f*cken miserable hiding all the time. Come out and proud, gents!

  45. Lemony says:

    Jeremy, you virile little pocket rocket!

    • sohere says:

      so IF this story is true…it is definitely not the brunette girl he was photographed with…if this “ex” is due next month then according to when those pics of him and the brunette were taken(end of august) she would be about 2-3 months pregnant..clearly from those photos..she is not. and also, Jeremy’s dad is expecting another baby with his wife in March (there was an interview JR did in Miami the day after the GG where he mentions a sibling of his will be born soon)…a lot of people seem to think that maybe this was the conversation that was heard on the smoking patio, hence why eva was “blown away” considering his dad is over 60! But hey…this is just an observation, hell maybe Jeremy is really expecting one himself…but honestly…I hope he isn’t! Anyways, that’s my two cents! :)
