Jeremy Renner has a crush on Tom Cruise & “they’re always hugging”


A few weeks ago, we had new photos of Tom Cruise and Jeremy Renner working at night on the Prague set of Mission: Impossible IV. I made some jokes about Tom Cruise making sure that he got to work with a damp Jeremy Renner, and some of you were offended. I don’t apologize. Tom Cruise is helming the third sequel in one of his most popular franchises, and he made sure to surround himself with some of the prettiest, and most interesting actors out there – in addition to Renner, Cruise also made sure that Josh Holloway was cast. I mean… come on. The homoerotic fairy tales are going to be written. Anyway, The National Enquirer has a new take on the homoeroticism taking place on set. According to their sources, Jeremy Renner is the one with the crush. On Tom. Of course, The Enquirer is basing this on the idea that Renner is gay, which they claimed several months ago.

Tom Cruise has a not-so-secret admirer – his costar Jeremy Renner. Renner – outed as gay early this year by his former acting coach – has a massice man-crush on his longtime idol, sources say, and the Mission: Impossible set is buzzing about their close friendship.

“Jeremy is always gushing about how charming and handsome Tom is. He even says things like, ‘When I grow up, I want to be just like Tom Cruise!’” an insider divulged.

Another source says: “It’s a physically grueling shoots, but Jeremy lights up whenever he’s with Tom… They’re always hugging, slapping each other on the back and bumping fists.”

Some speculate that Renner is being groomed to take over the M:I franchise. Renner – a 39 year old bachelor – has denied romances with Charlize Theron and Jessica Simpson in the past, and he’s fanned speculation about his sexuality by refusing to address the reports that he’s gay.

The insider also claims: “Jeremy’s relationship with Tom seems to work just fine. Jeremy feeds Tom’s ego, and Tom gets a charge out of Jeremy idolizing him.”

Oooh, kitten likes to play! Gay or straight, I think Jeremy would probably treat Tom with respect and even try to emulate certain things about Tom’s career. For example is supposed to be one of the nicest guys to work with – and I think any up-and-coming actor would be smart to look up to that quality. Now, is Renner flirting with Tom? “Stroking” Tom’s ego, amongst other things? And “They’re always hugging, slapping each other on the back and bumping fists”– the most homoerotic sentence ever. Well… I think why know why Tom is flying solo in Prague, while his wife and young daughter are in LA. I mean… Tom and Jeremy are adults. And there’s a lot of stroking to be done.

    He’s gay of course. They all are….

  2. Chris says:

    And as I said a week ago, the beauty of accusing a hetro celebrity of being gay, without any evidence, is that you can site the lack of evidence as evidence of the lengths they’ve gone to to cover it up. Then again Jeremy Renner used to be a stylist. Hmmm.

  3. Obvious says:

    You have to stop using that topless pic of Cruise. It’s really frightening. I may show it to little children to get all their candy for Haloween.

  4. Renee says:

    Puke on a popcicle stick! Yuck!

    @ Kaiser…I don’t think anyone was offended…at least I wasn’t with your previous post about TC. I was just pointing out that people need to stop making fun of others because they believe they may be “undercover” and then getting upset when people like Vince Vaughn throw the “your gay” “it’s gay” or whatever the phrase was around. I honestly just don’t think it’s conducive for the LGBT community and their fight for equal rights to make fun of people who are supposedly gay.

    Maybe I’m just too sensitive 🙂

    After seeing Renner in The Hurt Locker, I have a major crush on him.

    I saw Dahmer the other night, and he was soooooo creepy as Jeffrey Dahmer! He was very good in the role. Very convincing.

    I actually first noticed Renner in 28 Weeks Later. He is always hot as a military guy.

  7. Kaiser says:

    Lena – You get that the joke I’m making isn’t “gay people are funny, because they’re gay” right? The joke is “Big He-Man action star surrounds himself with nubile, hot male costars and continues to sell the idea that he’s straight.” I’m laughing at the hypocrisy.

  8. Jeri says:

    Can’t imagine anyone lusting after Tom C at this point. Yuk.

  9. Maritza says:

    Not unless there are photos to support this rumor will I believe that either of them are gay.

  10. mln says:

    Kaiser I love the gay porn fiction(especially the ones about Daniel Craig & Skarsgard) keep em coming.

  11. jen says:

    “Jeremy is always gushing about how charming and handsome Tom is. He even says things like, ‘When I grow up, I want to be just like Tom Cruise!’”

    I don’t know about gay, but he’s certainly mental.

  12. Chris says:

    @Kaiser: What? So now you’re saying gay people can’t be comedians? Have you no shame? 🙂

  13. Crash2GO2 says:

    “They’re always hugging, slapping each other on the back and bumping fists”

    Awkward displays of affection (as an ex boyfriend used to call those manly love taps).

  14. REALIST says:

    I’m with Obvious-the topless pics of Tom are creepy.
    As for the first pic, it looks like they’re skinny dipping….

  15. nag says:

    awful looking abs on tom.

  16. Nanea says:

    I sincerely hope Jeremy won’t catch the Crazy Cruise bug aka $cientology.

    And I also hope the people who are in MI:4 besides Cruise don’t damage their career. I know many people who will absolutely refuse to see that movie or any other that TC is in because of $cientology and I sincerely hope it will tank as did the other recent ones where TC was the male lead.

  17. Cruisin Through says:

    Jeremy has always rated high on the gaydar.

  18. carrie says:

    it’s official he’s gay now (LOL)but Ben Stiller also has a crush on Cruise

  19. Trashaddict says:

    The topless pics reveal what we have suspected about Tom Cruise all along, the Xenu stories are true and he is an alien. I can’t wait for a little baby alien to burst out of his stomach at Halloween!

  20. margo says:

    was Renner supposed to be in that Scientology movie being made? With philip Seymour Hoffman……srsy–movie is now dead. No Balls hollywood

  21. Sefa says:

    You know, I think you kind of overuse the word “homoerotic.”

  22. sickofit says:

    well two goodlooking *cough* men on set.
    but there has to be something with them being gay, because as they say: where there is smoke there is fire.
    and there has been alot of smoke on tom crusie maybe being gay.

  23. Stronzilla says:

    Reading this I had a sudden visual of Jeremy playing the Ethel to Tom’s Lucy.

  24. RiskyBusiness says:

    really people you have no imagination if someone can’t be pigeon holed and doesn’t behave run of the mill we make up our minds and then post as truth? there is no evidence that either of these men are gay..what is wrong with admiring TomCruise (other than the scientology creepyness?) he is a successful actor, father and husband the only negative things you ever hear about him are rumors. I hope Katie Holmes plans to teach Suri tabloid gossip 101 so she doesnt’ happen upon one of the rag headlines that her dad is gay, an alien or crazy. she should get on it.. Suri looks like she might start reading any minute.

    ps that first pic looks like a still from the movie get your minds out of the gutter.

    You have to stop using that topless pic of Cruise. It’s really frightening. I may show it to little children to get all their candy for Haloween.


    You took the words out of my mouth. That picture of shirtless Cruise is indeed creepy.

    About Renner being a weirdo who could catch the Scientology bug from working with Cruise (as someone said/feared above): apparently he said once that he used to masturbate to pictures of dead people when he was preparing for the role of Jeffrey Dahmer.

    There you go.

  26. Siren6 says:

    Oooh, kitten likes to play!

    I laughed so hard I think I just hurt myself. Thank you Kaiser!

  27. skibunny says:

    Jeremy looks like my neighbour’s dog. It’s a pug.

  28. Oh goodie goodie says:

    These two are definatley two guys I think like the back door. Enough said.

  29. Cookie says:

    There’s no way Jeremy Renner is gay! I don’t buy it at all. Like they say, when the gay rumors come out you know that you’ve made it in Hollyweird. Atta boy Renner!
