The 44-year-old opened up to Playboy about the rumors floating around regarding his sexuality, saying that he usually doesn’t even address the question:

“I’m not going to try to prove what I am or am not. It’s silly, right?”

He explained he doesn’t get offended by the rumors. Rather, he laughs them off by viewing them as a measure of his career:

“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.”

But, the Avengers: Age of Ultron star really hammered home that it doesn’t matter to him at all what people are whispering about his sexual preference:

“I don’t care, ultimately, if that’s what people want to think, read and care about. F**king say whatever the hell you want about me. Look at where we’re at socially├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥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├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥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?”

Well, said, Jeremy!

Even though he still left us wondering which team he’s playing for, he makes a really good point by saying that being gay definitely IS NOT a negative thing!
