Jeremy Renner: I'm Not Gay! It's Not F--king True!
Jeremy Renner, the star of the Oscar-winning The Hurt Locker, is hurt.
Renner -- who's coming up in The Avengers -- wants some vengeance.
He tells The Hollywood Reporter about the gay rumors that have circled him for years:
"I want my personal life to be personal, and it's not f--king true.
"And I don't care if you're talking about things that are true, you're still talking about my personal life."
Huh? So it's not true and it's nobody's business? And even if it is true, it's nobody's business?
"How about I go peek in your window," adds Renner, "take what underwear you wore last night, whose husband you were f--king, and shove that in the megaphone throughout your neighborhood? How does that feel? It's none of your goddamn business."
I have no problem with that, actually -- and I'm not even that famous.
Anyway, in the same interview -- relayed to me by E!'s Marc Malkin -- Renner remembers being in a bar when a guy called him the f-word for wearing a scarf.
"Then he shoved my sister," says Renner, "and I got behind him and I choked him out -- put him to sleep."
Oh, you did? Oh, OK. You're straight!!!!
