As only Jeremy Renner can reveal!
You're going to be seeing a lot of this hottie for the next couple of months. First, he be fighting alongside Tom Cruise in the next Mission: Impossible movie (if all the posters on buses, trains, billboards, etc. haven't given that away already) and not too long after that, promotion will star for the much anticipated movie, The Avengers, which also stars Jeremy.
But what is going on in this guy's head these days? What are the things he really thinks about? Details Magazine sat down with the actor and got the scoop, which we in turn will be sharing with U!
On how the hands-on physicality of rebuilding houses compares to filmmaking:
“Building a house is like producing a movie. There’s no right way to do it, but a lot of wrong ways. You have to be flexible and creative. You have to move fast, be prepared—or it quickly becomes costly. These sound like life lessons. It certainly affected how I approach my life.”
On fixing up old houses while he waited for roles that mattered to him earlier in his career:
“I wasn’t super-happy being so poor. Eating on $10 a month—probably not very good for you. But I loved what I was doing. Not every actor gives their life to do this job. Some just do it as a job. Well, it’s my life.”
“I never dated, because I couldn’t afford to date. I didn’t even have electricity. You try to put a positive spin on it, like, ‘Hey, this is so sexy—look at all these candles!’ But I loved what I was doing. The sacrifices I made in personal relationships had the biggest effect on my life. Even now, any woman would take a No. 2 seat to my job.”
On his film roles:
“I’m blessed to have cool roles in these big movies. Because nothing against Transformers, but thank God I don’t have to do a monologue to a robot. I don’t know how Shia, God bless him, does that.”
On unwanted attention and celebrity culture:
“I don’t pay attention to that horsesh•t. Build ‘em up to bring ‘em down? I’m not going on that train, my son. I’m not going on that train. I’ll walk. I’ll take a bike. [Renner laughs.] I’d rather just not be popular.”
With the exception of treating his lady friends as second to his career, we think he's got it all figure out.
But hun - love trumps all! Maybe it would be to your benefit to star in a romantic comedy with Katherine Heigl. That might spruce up your outlook on love!
