Jeremy Renner Is Going To Be A Father

This is a strange one. US Weekly has some people who overheard Jeremy Renner talking to Eva Longoria at the Golden Globes. He told Eva that his ex-girlfriend is currently living in his house and that she is pregnant and that Jeremy is going to be a father. He also said he was going to come back to town for the birth. So, does this mean he impregnated her? Is she a surrogate for Jeremy and someone else? I guess I am not understanding this. It did not sound like he is together with this ex and that he was only with her for a very very short time. Eva said, "I'm so blown away." Yeah, me too. I think we all are. Apparently the mother is not trying to hide her pregnancy but Jeremy is. Umm, then why is he sharing it with Eva who has never met a secret she didn't blab to someone who then ends up selling it.

Ok, to make it weirder, the article I read before coming on here said this woman is now married! And that they dated (her and Renner) for 4 years! He stated when they broke up that she was too interested in getting head shots during Hurt Locker junkets! Scandalous! LOL

phoenix said...

Oops, I smell a reveal here :p

Emobacca said...

Didn't Ted Casablanca get canned from E! for outing Renner?

ethorne said...

Clay Aiken had a baby too, just saying.

phoenix said...

Yes Emo, that be the one that done him in.

Basil said...

This should be interesting. I wonder what is going on? Did Eva get the details mixed up?

LottaColada said...

@Reno, I think they were talking about a different ex from separate a interview Jeremy gave to The Hollywood Reoprter. Her name was Jess Macallan. Why they added that to this story makes no sense but they don't have a name for the woman who is supposedly pregnant.

Renoblondee said...

Ok, thanks @Lotta. That was confusing. Something stinks with this whole story.

rejectedcarebear said...

Vicki- I had no idea you were knocked up. Congrats!

Erin B said...

@Reno - LottaColada has it right. Jess was his long-time girlfriend, & they broke up before the Oscars the year he was nominated for "The Hurt Locker." I don't know why they dragged her into the story. Maybe because she was his last known girlfriend besides hook up rumors (Jessica Simpson, Charlize, etc.). They didn't say who the baby mama is yet.

Miz said...

Agreed Renoblondee, but then, I'm living proof gay people have kids, so.... I guess I'll wait for more info :)

Vicki Cupper said...

RCB, LOL!

LottaColada said...

Also, in the article they say he is going to "fly in" when her water breaks... Is she close to the end of the pregnancy already? Does anyone know if he's on location somewhere else?

Frufra said...

Ha, RCB! I see what you did there! Very funny - you think VC is posting from her luvah Jeremy's basement??

EmEyeKay said...

yes, congrats, @Vicki! ;)

nevermindthat said...

Just because he is having a baby doesn't mean he's straight; he can be by sexual. For some strange reason I find that hot. I mean I don't usually go trolling for bi-guys but if it's Renner, RDJ or Jackman, I'm in.

Erin B said...

I've been a fan of Jeremy's for a lot of years, & there was never talk of him being gay before "The Hurt Locker" & that Enquirer interview. The person who said he is claimed to be an old acting coach but wasn't. I don't know why everyone believes that. People point to him living with his friend & business partner years ago, but his girlfriend Jess lived with them while they remodeled the house to put up for sale.

Sunny said...

I wonder if the "fly in" is because he's doing press for that Hansel and Gretel movie right now?

Speaking of which, I actually just turned on The Today Show for 2 minutes and Jeremy was on promoting his movie. 1) Why do turtlenecks on men skeeve me out so much? I really need to see a therapist about that 2) Does The Today Show only do interviews on that funky bench now? I feel like I'm watching old episodes of America's Funniest Home Videos. Very awkward

Lastly, what is the DEEAL (Seinfeld) with the Eva comment? Is she blabbed about a lot?

Amy said...

Is it possible he's being blackmailed by a former beard? Someone who got pregnant and is going to publicly say it's his and want support and ... what's he going to do?

Amy said...

(I mean, a former beard who is pregnant by someone else but is threatening to out him if he doesn't support her and the child as his.)

Supermom said...

Um..congrats? I hope he's excited and planning on being a GOOD dad.

Jolene Jolene said...

I totally think he could be bi as well, and yes I know gay men can father children blah blah blah...I guess I just don't see him as the John Travolta/Tom Cruise type to go through that whole charade. He seems like he doesn't care what people think about his sexuality, that's all.

Onyx Loathes Hydrangeas said...

@erin b, he was still living with his boyfriend as of last year when his dog died while he was watching it.

libby said...

He was really good in "Dahmer". It was early on in his career....See it! He plays Jeffery Dahmer, and in the extended dialogue scenes with his soon-to-be victims, we get to see the serial killer as a person. It's not sympathetic to him, it just shows how he was so human, fragile, lonely---and also a total monster. Disconcerting to watch, stays with you.

rejectedcarebear said...

@libby- I love that movie. I've done my fair share of serial killer research and that was a really good movie.

Pink_Palace said...

Sunny, turtlenecks pna man make me picture Ted Bundy, the notorious ladies man, serial killer. You old enough to remember him? When I think of turtlenecks on a man, I also get totally skeeved out!

Layna Day said...

@Amy: I don't think so. That would be easy to disprove. Renner can simply ask for a DNA test and out the woman as a blackmail artist, making her life miserable. People go to jail for that sort of thing, especially if a celebrity is involved. IMO, there's too much risk for someone to do that.

Maybe Renner just hears his biological clock ticking. He's 40 now, and maybe he simply wants to have a child sooner rather than later. If he wants that, then congratulations to him.

RocketQueen said...

Gonna check that out, libby

Why does anyone talk to Eva Longoria, is what I want to know?

FrenchGirl said...

congrats!

it's the evidence he had sex with a woman once (at least)
i can't wait the crazy blind items on this gossip

Amy in MI said...

Congrats on achieving your dream, Vicki! LOL.... Dammit, now if I could ever have my childhood crush, Brian May, come sweep me off my feet. I don't care if he's old and decrepit now, I love that man!

Unknown said...

Beard girlfriend beard baby

msgirl said...

As soon as I read this elsewhere I needed to come here and read the comments.

Maybe he's not gay? Ted thinks everyone is gay. Who knows, could be bi, straight, or gay, it's his and he sounds like he'll be there for the kid so everything's good!

Amy in MI said...

@Pink_Palace - OMG you're right.. I've read so many books on him (My aunt got me into serial killer/true crime books as a teenager)... Ted and his black turtleneck...skeevy!

Erin B said...

He has a lot of talk show appearances coming up. Now that it's out there, I wonder if he'll address it. I'm guessing since he likes his privacy he won't, but I'd like to hear more about it.

CanadianMiss said...

I just can't, with him. It's his hands. They freak me the hell out.

yodelay said...

I'm thinking surrogate in this case. But who knows?

yodelay said...

The truth is probably way more bland than anything that is being tossed about. Unfortunately -because I would love to imagine some juicy gossip about Renner!

rejectedcarebear said...

I also associate turtlenecks with Bundy. VW Beetles too.

Pink_Palace said...

Amy in MI: i read them too! It just dawned one 1-2 wks ago when I saw his mom had died, and they showed stock photos, that I realized why turtlenecks creeped me out on men...lol

As for Renner, who says they had sex?!? Is this to prove he is straight? Something is just fishy...


And, has Ted appeared anywhere else yet?

Robin the Mad Photographer said...

So much for thinking that this might put the gay rumors to bed... (Bi I could see, but he's just not pinging "gay" to me, and my 'dar is usually pretty decent.) Not everyone want to natter on about their love life publicly; Jodie Foster isn't the only one who prefers not to conduct her personal life in the press, and not everyone is trying to hide something such as their sexual orientation--they feel as if they've put enough of themselves out there as it is in the course of their work and the promotion thereof, and they'd like to keep their private life private...and there's nothing wrong with that, whether you're famous or a civilian.

In some ways, this isn't too terribly different from what happened w/Keanu Reeves & Jennifer Syme--they dated for a while and then split up, but stayed on decent terms; she found out she was pregnant & let him know; they decided not to get back together (because shotgun weddings are a bad idea all around), but for her to have the baby and him to support and help raise it. It's not that unusual a scenario, and happens often enough in the real world, so why not Hollywood? Sounds reasonable enough to me... (Of course, I pray they don't have to go through what Keanu and Jennifer did; I wouldn't wish that on anyone...)

Besides, it's not as if an obviously pregnant woman can hide--it sounds as if she's pretty far along, perhaps 8 months or so--especially if she's staying at someone's house, and most people have friends they talk to, even if they're not making big public statements; word does tend to get out eventually about this kind of thing. Right now, he's doing lots of Hansel & Gretel press, and his next movie w/David O. Russell will start shooting on the East Coast in about a month or so, hence the need for "flying in."

Call me a Pollyanna if you will, but I just don't see anything particularly devious going on here in terms of "bearding" scenarios, etc.--sometimes shit just happens, and you need to deal with it in the best way possible for all involved. Obviously, we know nothing about the mother-to-be, but he loves kids and has talked about wanting one (I'm sure this wasn't what he had in mind, but again, shit happens...), and assuming they both stay on good terms and keep the kid's welfare first and foremost, everything should work out just fine. Besides, having already done Lamaze duty for his mom and sister, it's not as if he doesn't know how that part works out... ;-) Congratulations, guys; I wish you all the best! (Now, where do I send the brownies? :-)

dragon said...

Congrats Renner if it is true!

auntliddy said...

Hes 40??? Wow, he looks amazing! ( think of linds, 26, and how she looks!)

Count Jerkula said...

think they made a milk shake to make it a crap shoot who the daddy is? Or does the top always get to be the one to donate the baby batter?

auntliddy said...

Maybe he told eva so she would spread the word. However it happened, its a new baby which is always abfab. Best wishes for happy and healthy baby~

Sunny said...

@Pink Palace
Oy - that's probably why! Bundy! I was a 70's baby so I know who he is. I think he was also used as a cautionary tale in my house growing up (serial killers can seem charming and attractive. Trust no one!)
Btw, our Pops were in the same line of work (I saw a post of yours yesterday), and a very dear family friend played for the Yankees between 49 and 57. I wonder if he was a teammate of your Dad's? Last name Coleman

Sherry said...

Robin,send me your famous brownies!

Good for him if he is going to be a father..There is more to this story than what is out there.

Mango said...

@ Erin B - there were gay rumors before The Hurt Locker

Erin B said...

@auntliddy - Just turned 42 actually.

@Mango - That's news to me, but I'm certainly not saying I've heard every rumor out there. Regardless gay or straight, the likelihood of me having sex with him is the same so it doesn't matter to me. It doesn't change my opinion either way. If he is, I think it's a shame people just can't be who they are. If it's a surrogate baby with his partner, I feel bad he has to lie about it.

NomNom83 said...

This whole thing sounds like a Hollywood Mad Lib. Pick two random actors -- one male, one female -- and go from there.

Renner was seriously just casually discussing this with Eva at the GGs?

Sounds like the end product of the worst game of Telephone ever. I would sooner believe the original interaction was Daniel Day Lewis apologizing to Claire Danes for stepping on the hem of her dress and it just went downhill from there...

sparklynan said...

Maybe I'm crazy, but I seem to remember Renner being on a reality show in the 90's about actors trying to make it in the biz, called "It Factor". It was on PBS or A&E or something before reality has gotten as pervasive as it is now. Never occured to me to think about the actors' sexuality then, but curious if I went back and watched those shows if anything about Renner would stand out? (I think the show ended right when he got his breakout role in "Dahmer".)

Anyone eles remember this????

ldylkng said...

His ex is now married & now living in his home? Just read this @ another gossip site. Will have to go back & check which one.

Vkn said...

I like this guy. Congrats , and hope you will be a great dad!

Char said...

I'm guessing its actually a surrogate, but he's just saying that she's an ex he knocked up.

ldylkng said...

US Weekly, says she is now married.

Aoife said...

This puts bearding on a whole new level. If there were emoticons on this site I'd use the laughing hysterically one.

Mister Fresh said...

Sounds to me like they used a turkey baster and he is paying her to stay home and have the baby. No name is typical of a surrogate.

jax said...

Renner is the new Cruise and those rumours aren't wrong either.

Maybe dude just wanted a baby.

mistang said...

Sorry, I'm laughing at everyone's comments, but also at that horrible soon-to-be porn stache. Ugh!

Ingrid Superstar said...

Imma shoutout that Mark Harmon-Ted Bundy movie!

rocketyank said...

@Erin touched on this, but everyone is always saying that Jeremy was out earlier in his career and that he got pushed back in the closest. How far back in his career are we talking about? Because I've been a fan since the SWAT/Dhamer days and I remember interviews where he talked about dating girls. Also, he was on some reality show called The It Factor and there was nothing about him being gay. I have no idea if the kid is gay or straight but this whole thing about him being out early on is nonsense.

rocketyank said...

@mango there were no gay rumors before Hurt Locker.

Gabby said...

@CanadianMiss - ITA! His hands are super creepy-looking!

whocaresnow12 said...

The things people buy into and believe are astonishing. He's not gay, not even bi, but tell these people that and they'll jump down your throat.

Pink_Palace said...

I was born in the 70's, he played in the 50's...I wish he was still here every baseball season, football, every day actually...

Yeah, Bundy ruined turtlenecks on men and YES ingrid superstar - i fell in love w/mark harmon when he did that movie and watch NCIS religiously - originally just for him, but that is an amazing amazing cast.

Again, nothing on renner except i find it funny, cause my gaydar pings like crazy around him, but i could easily be wrong.

Robin the Mad Photographer said...

@whocaresnow12: I won't, if that makes you feel any better; I'm personally inclined to believe you.

You know, a friend of mine had an interesting thought: Yes, the whole story could be true, but what if the "sources" misheard things? Or what if he noticed the eavesdroppers "hanging out" and decided to have a little fun with them, and either decided on his own or in cahoots with Eva to talk loudly and throw out a totally BS story for shits and grins, just to see who'd bite? Admittedly, it would be a punking of truly Clooneyesque proportions (eat your heart out, Ashton...), but it's not utterly impossible. Or, what if US just decided to pull the story out of its ass, just like a lot of the other ones they run, and see who they could get to believe it? Yes, US is marginally better regarded than some of the other tabs, but it's still a tabloid at the end of the day, right?

My friend works in a business where PR is very important, and she was surprised that no one had actually released any kind of statement so far, since one of the first PR rules is that when a big bombshell of a story hits the fan and splatters shit everywhere, everybody involved needs to collectively decide on the official party line, and then it needs to be sent out to the media ASAP...and whoever his PR person is, I'm assuming s/he isn't the kind of slackass who'd drop the ball on something like this. So I started checking around on various other news websites, and the only one who mentioned anything was Jezebel...in their weekly tabloid story wrap-up. Nothing on CNN, NBCNews, HuffPo, EW, or People, and we all know Kneepads would leap up and post a story if someone famous farted, never mind was about to become a first-time father under these kind of circumstances.

If it's true, then I'd like to reiterate my congratulations to both parents, not only for the impending new arrival, but for somehow keeping it a secret for 8 months in Hollywood, in the electronic age, with both professional paps and amateur TMZ hounds behind every rock, tree, bush and stump; you guys deserve a freaking MEDAL for somehow pulling it off. *drops a curtsy*

And, if it's not..Um, Jeremy? You're now officially enough of a Big Deal in Hollywood to have the tabloids make up complete bullshit stories about you to sell their rags, and while I'm very happy for you regarding your success (hey, you've earned it, damn it!), I can't exactly jump up and down in joy for you just because you've now got a pap target on your back. *sigh* Hang in there, OK? *hug*

Christopher Cruz said...

ROFLMAO!!! True!!!

Robin the Mad Photographer said...

Well, this is an interesting take on things:

http://www.hollywood.com/news/Jeremy_Renner_Expecting_Child_Dad_Ridiculous_Gossip_Item/48283557

She makes a whole lot of sense there...In the meantime, I'll be looking forward to seeing him on Jimmy Fallon tonight--whether or not this even comes up, they should be amusing together. Perhaps they'll even do a song?... *gets hot chocolate mix out of cupboard so I can have a cup later*

mngddess said...

Sunny - For you it's turtlenecks, for me it's bow ties. Bow ties only belong on tuxes. Anything else and I don't trust the guy. Don't know why.

Jazzy said...

So is Kanye. -_-

Agent**It said...

Robin that was a well written and fun link. Like early Enty writing.

Sunny said...

Oh, Pink Palace. I didn't know your father had passed. It sounds like you had a very special relationship

Pink_Palace said...

Thanks sunny, we really did. I was blessed with 2 amazing parents!

rejectedcarebear said...

I would KILL for a copy of that Mark Harmon Bundy movie on DVD. It was such a classic.

Silly Girl said...

There is something about this story that just seems so off. He tells someone SO random (Eva, do/did they even know each other?) something SO personal and apparently top secret? If he were trying to 'hide' it, why did he blab randomly at something so social and public?
None of this makes sense to me, just like the ND guy and his fake/dead girlfriend.
Have I really become that jaded that I just don't believe these stories?! I hope not. CDAN if my favorite go to place for all the good stuff!

Erin B said...

@Robin - He was awesome on Fallon. He always seems to have fun when he's on there. No questions about this drama. We'll see what Letterman does.

Calichickkkk said...

No he's always had gay rumors. And everyone in the industry knows.

Calichickkkk said...

He's gay like BCoop where he doesn't ping ur gaydar.
But they be gay. Maybe one day, they'll come out.

Angela said...

Do you by any chance know of the play "The Little Dog Laughed"? If I remember correctly, part of the plot might be similar to this situation...

*SPOILERS FOR THE PLAY AHEAD*

It's about a gay male Movie Star whose Agent thinks his career will be ruined by him coming out of the closet.

Movie Star falls in love with a Male Prostitute, who is bisexual and has a Girlfriend.

Male Prostitute's Girlfriend gets pregnant with his child.

Girlfriend is madly in love with Male Prostitute. But now Male Prostitute and Movie Star are madly in love with each other.

So the Agent comes up with a plan:

They will all live together. Girlfriend will pretend that it is Movie Star's baby. Male Prostitute will pretend to be Movie Star's assistant.

Movie Star gets the relationship he wants, while still appearing straight (and a family man!). Male Prostitute gets the relationship he wants, and the money to get out of prostitution, and to be with his child. Girlfriend gets to be with the man she loves, gets her life paid for, and secures the future of her child.
