Jeremy Renner Once Chocked A Guy With A Scarf
Jeremy Renner has found himself entangled in gay rumors on a few occasions, with the National Enquirer being the source of such speculation. The first instance emerged when he soared to stardom after his Oscar-nominated performance in The Hurt Locker. The second bout of rumors surfaced due to his close friendship with Tom Cruise during the filming of Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jeremy Renner, known for fiercely guarding his privacy, surprisingly revealed a rare glimpse into an incident where he was provoked and responded candidly about standing up for himself when someone made derogatory remarks about his sexuality.
“This guy chokes me with the scarf I was wearing. He called me a f*g ’cause I was wearing a scarf! Then he shoved my sister and I got behind him and I choked him out – put him to sleep. I’m not violent,” Renner said.
Regardless, Renner firmly asserts his heterosexual orientation and expresses his disapproval of people delving into his private life. He emphasizes his focus on long-term relationships with female companions.
Why Did Jeremy Renner Leave Mission Impossible Franchise
With Mission: Impossible 4, the franchise embarked on a fresh chapter, signaling a new era for the series. Jeremy Renner joined Tom Cruise in the film, portraying Ethan Hunt’s protégé. Renner reprised this role in Rogue Nation but did not make a return for the 6th and 7th installments of the series.
When contemplating the reasons for Jeremy Renner’s absence from the 6th and 7th entries of Mission: Impossible, director Christopher McQuarrie shed light on two key factors. Firstly, Renner’s commitment to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) played a significant role in his availability for the MI projects. Secondly, the uncertainty surrounding the development of Mission: Impossible 6.
“At the time, when the movie started, we didn’t really have a screenplay, so it was very difficult for us to say who would be in the movie for how long and on what days, and he had a commitment to Marvel… It was just an unfortunate case of bad timing,”
Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol is available for streaming on Paramout+.
