The Things They Say…About Gay Rumours

“As a general rule, I don’t respond to questions about my personal life. I’m not going to try to prove what I am or am not. It’s silly, right? When you google yourself and the first thing that comes up is ‘Jeremy Renner gay,’ it’s like, ‘Oh, now you’ve arrived. You’re now a giant movie star.’ So I just had a big laugh about it. I don’t care, ultimately, if that’s what people want to think, read and care about. Fucking say whatever the hell you want about me. Look at where we’re at socially—leaps and bounds ahead of where we started. That’s an amazing thing. To suggest that it’s negative, that being gay is a terrible thing, a perversion or whatever—I just don’t get it. Don’t you wish we were in a world where we’re not shaming, judging and boxing people in?”

  1. Amen to that! We can be so presumptuous about other people’s lives. Not good.

  2. We live in a society that is very very intrusive. With my contemplations, opinions, judgments… It’s never ending. And just too bad.

  3. LOL. I like his ideology though. When they are talking about you, instead of being upset, take it in stride to mean that you have arrived.

  4. Lol, it may feel uncomfortable to have people caring about your personal life. But when you put yourself out there to the public, were you expecting to be ignored? Only thing I dislike is if people are talking down to him cos of his sexual orientation.

    • my thoughts exactly. you can’t make money / fame from being in the public’s eye & turn around & complain about the exposure.
