At 52 years old, Jeremy Renner has this physical status:
Renner made his film debut as an underachieving student in the 1995 comedy National Lampoon's Senior Trip. Although the film was critically panned, he went on to guest star on two television shows, Deadly Games and Strange Luck, and had a minor role in the television film A Friend's Betrayal as the friend of Paul Hewitt (Brian Austin Green). Over the next few years, Renner had guest roles in Zoe, Duncan, Jack and Jane (1999), The Net (1999), The Time of Your Life (1999), and Angel (2000). Renner had a small role in an episode of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation in 2001. Renner worked as a makeup artist during this period to help make ends meet.
In 2002, Renner starred in Dahmer as the eponymous serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer. He found the non-fiction role a challenge to cope with after he had finished shooting the film, knowing that Dahmer murdered seventeen victims. His performance was well received, and he gained a nomination for the Independent Spirit Award for Best Lead Male. He also appeared in Pink's 2003 music video for her song "Trouble" as a Bad Boy Sheriff. Renner went on to appear in S.W.A.T. as the former police partner of Colin Farrell's character in 2003 and The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things in 2004.
In 2005, Renner starred with Julia Stiles and Forest Whitaker in A Little Trip to Heaven, with roles in North Country and 12 and Holding.

Renner also had a small (though uncredited) role in skateboard film Lords of Dogtown as the manager of Emile Hirsch's character. In 2006, he starred with Ginnifer Goodwin in Love Comes to the Executioner.

After starring with Dallas Roberts in the comedy-drama Ingenious and starring in the short-lived television series The Unusuals, Renner went on to achieve critical success for his portrayal of bomb disposal expert, Sergeant William James in the 2009 Iraq war thriller The Hurt Locker (directed by Kathryn Bigelow). The role earned him several awards in the Best Actor category and his first Academy Award nomination for Best Actor as well a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination.
In 2010, Renner's performance in Ben Affleck's The Town alongside Jon Hamm, Blake Lively, Slaine and Michael Yebba garnered him rave reviews and his second Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor. He also gained his first Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actor and his second Screen Actors Guild nomination. The Hollywood Reporter named Renner as one of the young male actors who are "pushing – or being pushed" into taking over Hollywood as the new "A-List".
In 2011, Renner had an uncredited cameo appearance as Hawkeye in Thor for familiarity with his character for The Avengers, which was released in May 2012. The same year, he also starred in the fourth film in the Bourne franchise, The Bourne Legacy, which was written and directed by Tony Gilroy. Renner played a new lead character, Aaron Cross, in place of Jason Bourne, who was played by Matt Damon in the first three films. Renner has expressed interest in doing a Bourne film with Damon in the future, stating that "[it] would be kick-ass. I love Matt".
Renner starred in the action horror film Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters (released in January 2013), in which he and Gemma Arterton played Hansel and Gretel, respectively. The 3-D film was set 15 years after Hansel and Gretel killed the witch who kidnapped them. Renner was also featured in the ensemble cast of David O. Russell's dramedy American Hustle based on the controversial FBI ABSCAM operation of the late 1970s and early 1980s. The film, which was released in December 2013, also starred Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence in principal roles. The film earned much critical acclaim, including the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture and a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Picture. In October 2014, Renner starred as journalist Gary Webb in the Focus Features film Kill the Messenger, based on Webb's book Dark Alliance. Renner also co-produced the film. In December 2014, Crackle aired The Throwaways, a film for which he served as executive producer.
In 2015, Renner reprised his role as Hawkeye in Avengers: Age of Ultron, the sequel to The Avengers. He returned to the Mission: Impossible franchise in Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, released in July 2015. In 2016, Renner played Hawkeye again in the summer blockbuster film Captain America: Civil War, and starred with Amy Adams in the sci-fi film Arrival.

In 2017, while working on the film Tag (2018), Renner fractured his right elbow and his left wrist. He also appeared in the film Wind River with his MCU co-star Elizabeth Olsen.
Renner filmed scenes as Hawkeye for Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, but ultimately did not appear in the former. Because of resulting scheduling conflicts, he was unable to reprise the role of William Brandt in Mission: Impossible – Fallout (2018). In July 2018, Jeremy Renner was announced to play Twitch Williams in Todd McFarlane's Spawn reboot.
Renner is also a singer-songwriter, guitarist, keyboardist, and drummer. Early in his acting career, he performed in the Sons of Ben. He has performed songs on several film soundtracks: "I Drink Alone" for North Country, "American Pie" for Love Comes to the Executioner, and "Good Ole Rebel" for The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. He also appeared in music videos for "Trouble" by P!nk and "Scenes on Sunset" by Brother Sal. He was featured in Sam Feldt's 2018 single, "Heaven (Don't Have a Name)".
He released his first extended play, "The Medicine" in March 2020.
Renner released a mobile app called "Jeremy Renner" (Android) and "Jeremy Renner Official" (iOS) in March 2017. The app was created by Escapex, a company that specializes in monetized apps for celebrities.
FastCompany wrote extensively about Renner's app in April 2019, calling it "a surprising new kind of social media". Discussing the self-referential nature of the app, The Ringer stated "Jeremy Renner's Jeremy Renner app is the Jeremy Renner of apps."
The community developed to include memes, selfies, and a "Happy Rennsday" event on Wednesdays. As early as October 2017, there were claims of censorship, bullying, and "contest-rigging". In September 2019, comedian Stefan Heck publicized his discovery of the fact that replies through the app appear as if they were sent by Renner himself in push notifications. After several users abused this feature, Renner asked Escapex to shut down the app.

Jeremy Renner is accusing his ex-wife Sonni Pacheco of dipping into their daughter’s trust fund for her own personal use!
According to court documents filed last Tuesday, the Avengers: Endgame actor claimed that, in less than two years, his 29-year-old ex transferred nearly $50,000 from their 7-year-old daughter Ava‘s trust fund account to pay for Christmas presents, property taxes, and attorney’s fees.
Lady GaGa is living life to the fullest since her split from fiancé Christian Carino! Not only has she snagged her Oscar, but it’s possible she could be snagging a new beau, too! And no, we’re not talking about Bradley Cooper, for all the Shallow shippers out there. According to an Us Weekly source, the 32-year-old has been “hanging out” with Jeremy Renner. Related: Lady GaGa Is Expecting… Her Next Album! While the insider “doesn’t believe it’s romantic at this point,” they did make it clear the A Star is Born actress has “been spending a lot of time” with the Marvel star AND his six-year-old daughter, Ava! The 48-year-old actor shares the little one with ex-wife Sonni Pacheco. And in fact, the two were embroiled in a battle over child support payments just a few years ago before finally settling on the Avengers star coughing up $16,000 a month, a full $3K hike from his last payment. Renner and Pacheco may have had trouble seeing eye-to-eye in court, but they were married for 10 months before the latter filed for divorce in 2014! So, while the source may not think it’s gotten “romantic” between GaGa and Jeremy, her also spending time with his daughter sounds like a big deal to us! At the same time, the songstress did get out of a super serious relationship with Carino not that long ago. Related: Taylor Kinney Says ‘Sorry For Liking’ Shady Lady GaGa Comment! It was just after Valentine’s Day that it was confirmed she and her talent agent beau had gone their separate ways, though as we reported earlier, GaGa was spotted without her engagement ring at the Grammys. She even hit the red carpet solo. The split came as a huge surprise as she and Christian had just gotten engaged this past October after first going public with their relationship back in February 2017! And just several months prior to her dating him, she had just split from Taylor Kinney! The two actors began seeing each other after meeting on the set of her You and I music video. The Chicago Fire star then proposed to GaGa in 2015, and they were engaged for almost a year and a half before splitting in July of 2016. So, while it might seem too soon for her and Renner to connect, it sounds like they’re taking it super slow. Do U think The Town star would be a good match for her?? Or should she continue living the single life? Sound OFF in the comments (below)! [Image via Adriana M. Barraza/FayesVision/WENN]
