Hurt Locker Actor Jeremy Renner Gay??

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayYummy Yummy ScrewLGBT


We are going to take this rumor with a grain of salt, but hey - we can dream, right? He is SEKSI!

The National Enquirer is reporting that Jeremy Renner, the Oscar-nominated star of The Hurt Locker is HOMOLICIOUS, and although not closeted, he prefers to keep the subject of his sexual preference out of the press.


Melanee Wyatt, who claims to have worked as Renner's acting coach way back when, says:

"I have never had the pleasure of meeting Jeremy's boyfriend, but the fact that Jeremy is gay has never been a primary concern."

Other sources claim that despite his amazing performance as a military bomb-squad leader, Renner just wants to star in a musical!

Yes, because all gay men just DIE for musicals.


But, hey - Jeremy should be flattered!! You know you've made it when the gay rumors start!!

    People say that I am gay.Does that mean I have made it?

  2. 2

    So what? I'm tired of your agenda to out EVERYONE. Most of us don't care who's gay or straight.

    You're pathetic. Let people alone and let them come out when and if they want to.

  3. 3

    Who cares?

  4. 4

    yeah, like he would be interested in your fat ass? LOL - Perez, you are pathetic, outing everyone you want to screw. Dream on fattie.

    And WHY is this even a concern? Why doesn't the public have the need to discuss whether someone is Muslim or Buddhist, a premajure ejaculator or has a foot fetish, so why is his sexual orientation an issue???? If gays want to be treated equally, than act equal and don't make yourself into an exclusive club. Oh, he's one of "ours".

    Jerry was great as the Marine whose job is so terrifing that the job has to take over your life in order to get it done. Lunch?!?

  9. 9

    wow.. didn't realise how harsh people who leave comments could be.

    Now to comment on the actual topic.. YAAAAAAY! He's cute! And had previously googled Jeremy to see if my inclinations were correct.. there is no mention of any female companion's but no male ones either. So.. maybe he's 50/50

  10. 10

    His hair-do looks gay

  11. 11

    Hey Roseanne! "are you really the right person to expose it?" Sound familiar?

  12. 12

    he's not gay, nice try

  13. 13

    Didn't you see him at the Oscars, he was perving over all the ladies. He did the Sky 1 interview with Angela whatsherface and asked her to come along to a party with him afterwards. He's definantly a ladies man.

  14. 14

    My gay-dar went off when Colin Farrell was blowing him kisses at the Oscars. they used to be roomies. Not a surprise….

  15. 15

    hes gay, but who cares

  16. 16

    Re: nx2p87 – YES! WELCOME TO HOLLYWOOD! *hands oscar to you*

  17. 17

    He looks so much like Sandra Bullock's husband, Jesse James.

  18. Maio says – reply to this


    homolicious not for me

  19. 19

    Yeah, the fact that he and his "Buddy" buy houses together, live in them together, renovate them and sell them for the last 10 years while not having girlfriends pretty much seals the deal for me.

    Thats a lie, no doubt you work for his agent and are on here to try to stop this story.

    He said in his interview on Ellen that he used to sell make-up. Of course he's gay! And freakin' smoking hot!

  22. 22

    Totally homo.

    Re: nx2p87 – That's so funny, lol!

  24. 24

    If probably didn't help rumors when he took his mother as his date to the Oscars. The guy is almost 40…taking you're mom as a date is cute when you're in your early 20's. It screams "queen" when your approaching forty.

  25. 25

    uhhhhhh way back when he was dating my cousin…who is a girl. This is before he got any roles.

  26. 26

    What does it say about you that you're repeating a rumor that you claim to be skeptical about? It just proves once again that you're lower than the National Enquirer. Who cares if he's gay or not? Why do you feel the need to perpetuate this rumor - that's all it is at this point - further? Just because you're FLAMING and out, do you believe that every other gay person has to follow your lead?

  27. 27

    Well, he was a makeup artist and that's a pretty gay job for a man to do, so this is not totally farfetched.

  28. 28

    He's sooooooooo hot omgggg

  29. 29

    Melanee Wyatt is the director of the Yes Company here in Modesto. Jeremy has helped her from time to time when he comes to town. She was NEVER his acting coach.

  30. 30

    He's a total 'mo! I can't believe fairy Perez didn't know

    So, does that mean that because Charlize Theron decided to bring HER mother to the Oscars, she's gay too?

  32. 32

    Re: bitchgetoffme – Oh thank you so much everyone. I cant remember why I am getting an oscar but hey its america just get on TV and youre famous!

  33. 33

    Not surprising considering Joe Simpson tries to link Jessica to him.John Mayer,Tony Romo,this guy,all gay and the previous two were beards.I think Jessica is gay herself and only trying to cover it up with all these fake romances.

  34. ONIT says – reply to this


    Who cares? Since it's been a jokey part of the Academy Award speech for him, nobody can seriouly believe anything that is said afterwards. Some reporters don't even have their own ideas any more. *sigh*

  35. 35

    Was going to say something but I see there are so many hateful, moronc individuals. Dont want to deal with that today…

  36. 36

    Who really cares! Just stop outing people. By the way I do not think that this is new news.

  37. 37

    Re: SpaceCaddie – No — but Charlize Theron was in a long-term relationship before she called it quits with her ex Stuart Townsend — so taking her mother as along is not a big deal or unexpected. It doesn't matter if Renner is gay or straight…he's a fine actor but nevertheless it screams "queen" when an almost 40 guy brings his mother as his "date". I think his publicist works over time trying to make him look hetero. It doesn't matter if you go out with thousands of women each week…look at Ryan Seacrest. I have yet to see him linked with any woman for more than a few days.

  38. 38

    I can tell you for a fact that Jeremy Renner is not gay…at least he wasn't 10 years ago…: )

  39. 39

    well there goes his acting career

  40. 40

    I agree - you know you've made it in Hollywood when the gay rumors start. It doesn't matter if he is or isn't - I've been a fan of this guy ever since "Dahmer". The man can ACT. Love 'em.

  41. 41

    Re: UltimateToronto.com

    Agreed. And I think people want him to be gay, which I don't blame all you gay men out there because he is FINE, but he doesn't jump that side of the fence.

    Just because a guy takes his mother to the Oscars doesn't mean he's gay, because he's business partners with another man doesn't mean he's gay, because he wants to be in a musical doesn't mean he's gay, because he used to have a job as a makeup artist doesn't mean he's gay.

    I'm surprised none of you have thought of this, but a person is gay when they're with someone of the same sex in a romantic, intimate relationship. Any evidence of that? Nope. And the very fact that you're following gossip magazines and sites for your information about this is truly scary.

  42. 42

    Re: marketing101

    Let's break this down:

    If being in business with another man if you're a man or woman if you're a woman makes you gay, then there's a BUTTLOAD of closeted people in America right now and hey, my business partner is a woman, so am I. Maybe I'm gay and don't know it!

    Enjoying emotionally complex roles makes you gay? Man, there's a lot of seasoned heterosexual actors out there that must be gay too. De Niro? Gay. Pacino? Gay. Hanks? Gay. Bridges? Gay. Del Toro? Gay. Javier Bardem? Must be gay, did you see No Country for Old Men?

    Being older and unmarried and taking your mother to the Oscars makes you gay? Really? Maybe it is as he says, that he's at a time in his life where he's so busy it wouldn't be fair to be in a relationship with anyone because he couldn't devote himself to it?

    The man is a straight arrow, although I don't know him personally, I know someone that does. He definitely likes the ladies.

  43. 43

    Re: marketing101

    And as to Charlize Theron, not that we know it's true or not, but there's a lot of speculation about Jeremy and Charlize being an item but keeping it under the radar b/c she doesn't want to upset Stuart Townsend….oh wait, that's not as salicious as someone being gay, so it must be true.

    And for the record as well, the person who was quoted as saying she never got to meeting his "boyfriend", well like the other person said, she was never his acting coach……

  44. 44

    ::ponders:: Hm…wow…so this must mean that men who work as make-up artists are all gay, that men who find it deeply honoring to have a great mom in their life are gay, that any man who is almost 40 and single is gay….that's a lot of gay men in the world…which is funny 'cuz i thought being gay was about liking/loving someone from the same gender? Why is Hollywood so concerned with who he does or does not have an intimate relationship with??? He can act, he can sing, he picks characters that spark his interest…this makes him gay? And the fact that he wants to be in a musical makes him gay too? Well, damn, better tell John Travolta, James Marsden, Zac Efron, Johnny Depp and Ewan McGregor that they are all gay (since they have all been in musicals)….I never realized that the talented pool of actors in Hollywood was based upon what "team" you played on instead of what you brought to the table talent-wise… its sad to know that most ppl would rather know him because of his orientation rather then because he is a multi-talented man with an open road ahead of him thanks to his ability; closed and narrow minded ppl make it hard for me to ever believe that tolerance and acceptance is something that humanity is capable of.

  45. 45

    To continue, he could date a 9 headed Hydra for all i care, as long as he is happy and continues to act in the manner most of us respect him for; he chooses characters that are deeply compelling to him, characters that make will make him think and test his ability. He deserved his Oscar nod and his humble, down-to-earth nature was evidant in his excitement at just being nominated. I'm happy for him. *Note: I know that the first amendment saves you, but the (God forgive me for saying this) Bible-thumper who expressed that being gay is disgusting, you may not care that your words hurt or damage others, but I do…dont hide behind your faith or use it as a weapon…just think before you speak*

  46. 46

    I know you think you're doing something for gay right or whatever your agenda is by going on rampage to out everyone in hollywood, but i think by making such a big deal of pointing it out and bullying people into coming out you're having just as negative an impact as those who are homophobic. pointing it out when someone is not ready or even if they are, harping on it is just as bad because it SHOULDN'T matter. we are all equal; gay or straight, black or white, etc. just a thought. keep it positive, kids.

  47. 47

    Re: jewdea – I could not agree more; it's not up to outside ppl to make comments on someone else's behalf. It's not up to the press, or the public, to determine when it's time for someone to divulge information, it's the individual's CHOICE. Society, however, is so gossip hungry that it no longer cares whether or not the ppl we pay to entertain us are seen as human; we forget that they are ppl, just like us, living their lives and paying their bills…we feel entitled to know ever shred of what's happening to them, which we dont.

    Re: GoldenVenus

    ITA. But it's so unfair that now he and his friend are going to have to decide whether or not they want to even reply to this speculation or not, it's a real Catch 22 for them. Deny them and you're a homophobe. Say nothing and you're just closeted.

    And for the record, if I repeat myself I apologize, but that chick saying she was an acting coach of his wasn't. He's helped her out before back in Modesto but she never coached him.

    Re: nickybunz – This is Melanee Wyatt. I never "claimed to be" Jeremy Renner's acting coach. Nor did I imply or make the statements in this article. The words in the quote are not mine. What is written is false and untrue. Jeremy is a talented actor and wonderful young man.

  50. 50

    Perez, your an asshole. I like this guy, he's a great actor. I've enjoyed almost every piece of work this guy has done, even that episode on House. If he is outed, most likely he won't get the roles he deserves. Like it or not Hollywood stereotypes Gay actors, which I'm sure there are alot of. Unfortunately, most of America has a gay bias and won't see a gay actor in a lead role playing a straight guy. Personally, I don't give a shit. I beg of you, please stop trying to out good actors who have a chance at a career.

  51. 51

    nooooooo!!!! I love him, so sexy!! well, it's always the good looking ones :P

  52. 52

    Jeremy Renner is def. not gay..im a gay man skilled in the art of gaydar and i haven't even had a blip sent my way…trust me, i wish he were but from my perspective, no way.

  53. 53

    Highly doubtful…but it's hard to tell with some guys;P

    I'm really not one to comment on people who I think are gay. But when I was watching the Oscars last week, and heard PETER SARSGAARD talk about Carey Mulligan when she and the other Best Actress nominees were announced and talked about by their celebrity peers on-stage, I really thought that HE was gay. Jeremy Renner? Nah. Peter Sarsgaard? Absolutely.
