Jeremy “Vesty” Renner & Rachel Weisz in Deauville: lovely or budget?

Sometimes when I’m just covering photos from a premiere, I have to stop myself from going for the knee-jerk “this is what [random actress] wore”. This is one of the occasions. Although I could (and will!) discuss Rachel Weisz’s appearances at the Deauville Film Festival to promote The Bourne Legacy, let’s take a rare moment to start with Jeremy Renner, shall we? Now, I unapologetically adore Jeremy Renner. I flat-out LOVE him, if truth be told. He’s a talented actor, he gives a great interview, he’s delightfully weird, and now I know… he fancies himself a Fashion Boy. How else to explain this outfit at The Bourne Legacy photo call? Shiny pants? Check. Two-tone suede shoes? Check. A waiter’s too-stiff shirt (with the cuffs rolled up)? Check. A KICK-ASS VEST? CHECK. WTF is this vest? It’s ridiculous and beautiful and hilarious and it just makes me happy. The vest has the kind of giant, gaudy buttons that would make Duchess Kate squeal with joy. The vest is super-fancy… too fancy for Renner. Jeremy Renner IS Vesty McButtons.

As for Rachel Weisz… OMG HER FACE. I love her face so much. So much that I basically don’t care what she wears, although I do think she could do much better than these two dresses. The orange Sonia Rykiel dress (for the photo call) is kind of unflattering over all – not the best design, not the best color. The white Nina Ricci (for the Deauville premiere) is too bridal for my taste, plus I’m just not a big fan of tiers. I’ve seen her look so much better, basically.

    I don’t usually get into the whole “bump watch” thing…but there’s no way a woman with a figure like Rachel’s would wear unflattering, billowing sacks to premieres unless she’s covering something up.

    • Birdix says:

      my thoughts too, plus the protective arm over her stomach

      • arietta says:

        I thought so too! I hope its true…. we can have more bump watching if and when she goes to Bond Premiere in October! She and Daniel have to reproduce…. that should be a law – lol

    • Nanz says:

      I was going to say that I think she’s been messing with her face (injections, etc.), but maybe it’s first term weight gain? Gawd I hope so. I’d hate to see her ruin her perfectly beautiful face with Botox.

      P.S. “Vesty McButtons” made me snort-laugh. So good.

  2. Helen says:

    Tragic vest but OMG that azz! I agree with what you said, minus the part about him fancying himself as a Fashion Boy – I get the feeling he doesn’t really care about playing this whole fashion game, so he just wears what they will have him wear.

    That, or it hurts me to think he would have chosen that outfit himself.

    Still. Love. Him.

  3. Amelia says:

    Ohhh, I do love pocket rocket posts! He seems like such a fun guy to just go out and have a drink with. Ah. My pretend husband ^^
    I actually sort of like the white tier dress. I’m not sure I’d wear it, but I don’t think it’s completely fug.

  4. Helena Bonham-Handcart says:

    That vest (waistcoat, over here) is Vivienne Westwood – you can tell by the subtle, ahem, logo on the equally subtle buttons. And I normally like Westwood….

  5. Aiobhan says:

    I like her white dress. I do not really get why people think he is attractive but I like his personality alot.

  6. Mia 4S says:

    I love him to death, seriously. His casual photos are seriously casual so my guess is he wears what they tell him too, most guys probably do.

    So what’s the verdict on that girl he was out with. Girlfriend? Friend? Family? Secret wife? She was really pretty, and I want that car!

    • The Original Mia says:

      She needs to step away from my pocket rocket husband!

      The car is gorgeous. He had a Porsche a few weeks ago. He’s spending that Avengers/Bourne money on some nice toys.

      • j.eyre says:

        I was reading intently until I got to the photo of the car, then I kind of got distracted. I don’t know who I find more attractive, Renner or the Maserati – both in the same shot is a fairly powerful amount of yum.

    • renata says:

      The woman in the daily mail article gets my “beard-of-the-day” award. Pretty. That vest just broke the needle on my gaydar detector.

      • Eve says:

        That vest just broke the needle on my gaydar detector.


        I don’t know if he’s gay or not. Sometimes I get the vibe (for instance, when he angrily reacts to the gay rumors), sometimes I don’t. But “breaking the needle on one’s gaydar detector”? Yup, that’s my newest favourite expression.

      • ZenB!tch says:

        Yeah that vest and those pants… are um… not hetero.

        The girl, has a nice body and fake boobs so she is trying to leech on to his fame beard or not.

      • Mia 4S says:

        Look I know the vest comment is a joke but really, are we still that small minded that we are stereotyping clothes? I suppose the next female celebrity who shows up with a short hair cut you’ll remind us that style is “clearly lesbian”? Honestly I just don’t find it funny anymore. It smacks of something my 80 year old grandfather would say.

      • Amy says:

        Random brunette’s body is HOT.

        …and he looks more than a little gay standing next to her.

    • lori says:

      Family. One of his step sisters. He’s the oldest of a brood of kids. His parents were each married several times after his birth….so step sister. She has a similar nose too I thnk

      • dee says:

        If they are step-siblings there’s no actual relation so the similarity of noses is just a coincidence. Am I alone in liking the vest? For me, reasonably thin guy in a white shirt and black vest= hot. Always. Well, not if it’s a sweater vest I suppose but you don’t see many of those on the red carpet.

      • ZenB!tch says:

        @Dee I think she meant half sister.

    • Brownie says:

      Gay. And I am gutted about it. He snuck his ‘business partner’ Kris to the Seven Psychopaths premiere – see the footage and look for the handsome redhead in the white untucked shirt.

  7. The Original Mia says:

    Rachel is lovely. Think she might be pregnant. Her face looks fuller since the last premiere.

    Oh, Jeremy…love you. Hate your fashion choices. As for the link MiaS provided, botch better step away from my future hubby!

  8. Vivian says:

    The white dress was not that bad; not the best but not terrible. They both looked great though; happy too.

  9. Raven says:

    This is the worst I’ve seen her look in a long time. That orange dress looks like a K-Mart special and the white one isn’t flattering either. Even her face and hair look below par. She’s looked a lot better in jeans and boots at a farmers market.

    • mary simon says:

      Beautiful woman wearing boring, sacky dresses, hmmm…., who does that bring to mind? Looks like she’s been raiding Angelina’s closet.

    Vesty McButtons _ L̳̿Ö̤̣̇☺ː̗̀(=)))ː̖́☺Ö̤̣̇L̳̿

  11. Amanda_M87 says:

    His vest is really dorky, but he still looks cute. I like her orange dress but the white one looks like a wedding gown.

  12. Jayna says:

    I love her. She’s gorgeous. The shape of the orange dress is just bad, cheap-looking. I saw a photo of Jennifer Connelly, who to me battles with an eating disorder (sometimes puts on a few pounds and looks great but next movie she’s gaunt looking), and the difference between the two dark-haired, fortiesh beauties is striking. Jennifer’s face is so gaunt and it makes her look just draggy and tired. (Remember He’s Just Not that Into You? She looked tired in the face because she’s too thin). Whereas, Rachel looks beautiful and fresh in her face because she isn’t an unhealthy weight.

  13. renata says:

    I keep wanting to order 2 cappuccino from him with that vest on. I think he’s 100% attitude, 0% looks. To me he just has this odd putty face, that isn’t attractive. But attitude can be a enough, and he is a good actor that comes off as being supremely cool.

    Rachel is so beautiful that I never really notice what she wears, it just doesn’t even matter. She’s so intensely lovely, and a smart, wonderful actress. I hope she’s around for a good long time.

  14. taylor says:

    She is so lovely! But yeah, these are not the best dresses she’s ever worn. I could almost be okay with the white one if it weren’t for the first ruffle on her torso. (I do not play “bump watch” and am terrible at it, but would love it if she’s pregnant!)
    And Jeremy Renner is SO CUTE, regardless of, ahem, his fashion choices.

  15. Linda says:

    Oh, he just looks fantastic!!

  16. mila says:

    Vesty McButtons 😀

  17. Miles says:

    Seeing the pictures of the two of them together makes me remember that time when Jeremy and Rachel were shooting the Bourne Legacy in the Philippines early this year and the actors stayed in a five star hotel here in Manila. My brother who had a meeting in the same hotel saw them making out in the lounge/restaurant area which is also open to hotel guests so it is kind of a public place. He thought they were shooting a film but he saw no cameras, directors and crews around. Just the two of them cozying up together in a foreign place who taught no one would recognize them. Her husband Daniel Craig visited her only once during the filming. So I think many if not everybody in HW cheats on their partners while doing a movie especially the out of town/country filming.

    • Mia 4S says:

      Whoa!…I mean…whaa? I haven’t heard that one before!

    • mila says:

      Don’t believe that. Without proof you are just trolling.

      • Tiffany27 says:

        I wanna see receipts. Who would cheat on the sexiness that is Daniel Craig? Renner is awesome, but he ain’t that awesome.

    • lori says:

      I don’t believe that of Renner. WHile I don’t think he’s gay I just don’t believe he’d poach a wife. But I could believe it of her in a second. pretty shadey how her and Daniel Craig got together in the first place.

      • honeybee says:

        When she has the real deal as her husband why would she want to fool around with a fake like Renner who has no personality of his own? Rachel is a class act and she loves her family and her profession. She would never do anything to jeopardize that. She has taste. She wont go for this – LOL

    • arietta says:

      Stupid troll

  18. chalkdustgirl says:

    NO to his pants in the 3rd pic…they look like he should be leading a circus act.

  19. Amanda_M87 says:

    I’m pretty sure Miles is a troll. No pictures means it probably didn’t happen.

  20. dahlianoir says:

    Jeremy Reiner : DAT ASS !

  21. Samantha says:

    Her face looks really off in the eyebrow area, and not at all the way it usually does. She should NEVER mess with that face. It’s exquisite. 🙁

  22. jen7waters says:

    I love them both on these pics!! 😀
    (Hawkeye!! \o/)

  23. A- says:

    I LOVED him in the Bourne Legacy. In still photos, I find him meh. But in motion – yum.

    • ZenB!tch says:

      Exactly, I have to remind myself why I think he is hot in still pics.

      — I saw him in MI:4 (dragged I loathe Cruise). I was like “gah… who’s the guy.”

      — Then I looked online and was like WTF?

      — Then he was here a lot and I was still like “I know I think he is hot but well why?”

      — Then I saw Bourne and I was like “gah!”

      — Now, I am looking at these photos and asking myself “Why on Earth do you think he is hot?”

      And it’s not the clothes. He looks a lot better groomed in the tux ones but still the “hot” is not there like it is on screen.

      • mila says:

        I think he looks like a man/boy at the same time. He is 41 and has that almost boyish face. A lot of women like boyish men. He is amazing actor, very talented. I am not into manboy vibe, but he is ok.
        You can bounce quarters off of that ass.

  24. Roe says:

    I have a family member who works with his cousin. I don’t think Jeremy is gay, but his cousin is.
