Would you want Jeremy Renner at your wedding? What if you didn't even invite him?

That's what happened to a lucky couple (assuming they were "Avengers: Age of Ultron" fans) getting married in Houston, Texas this past weekend. Although it's not really as dramatic as it sounds. Renner explained to People how he unintentionally crashed a random wedding.

"There was a reception at the bar in the hotel I stayed in," Renner revealed. "I was approached by many people to take photos and I said that this is the bride and groom's special night, so out of respect I declined photos not to take away a...

Scarlett Johansson as Black Widows
Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner have apologized for some comments they made about fellow star Scarlett Johansson's character Black Widow, because our oversensitive society had to find something wrong with two grown men joking around and obviously not being serious AT ALL during an interview to promote the film.

The two stars, who play Avengers Captain America and Hawkeye, respectively, sat down for an interview with Ditital Spy, and in addition to the rumors that the new film contains a romantic arc between Black Widow and Bruce Banner/Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), the t...

Jeremy Renner's Terrifying Custody Battle With Sonni Pacheco Is
Jeremy Renner and Sonni Pacheco have finally ended their long, messy and sometimes terrifying custody battle. Or almost ended it, as the two finalize the terms for their daughter Ava's custody and child support.

They've agreed to joint custody of the two-year-old Ava, People reports, even though Pacheco had been gunning for full custody. She had also been gunning for spousal support, but won't be getting that either. Renner will have to pay child support, though, to the tune of $13,000 (!!) a month. Just be glad he's got all that "Avengers" money coming in.

Jeremy Renner Cracks Joke About Jennifer Lopez's Boobs At Golden
Sometimes, it's comforting to know that celebrities are just like us. They eat take-out. Get frustrated at traffic.

And when they see Jennifer Lopez's boobs bursting forth from her gown at the Golden Globes, they just have to make a joke.

That's what Jeremy Renner did, while onstage with Lopez at last night's award show, presenting the award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television (boy, that's a mouthful).

While fussing over who should open the winning envelope, Lopez offered her services.

Interview: Jeremy Renner Talks 'Kill The Messenger,' 'Avengers:
Jeremy Renner is an actor's actor. At least that's what we've come to believe. In the short time since he's exploded into the mainstream with an Oscar-nominated performance in Kathryn Bigelow's "The Hurt Locker", Renner has become something of a multi-purpose performer. He's proven his capabilities in a variety of different genres, from bank robbers to superheroes, and he seems keen on stretching his talents as far as they can go.

In his new film, the politically-charged thriller "Kill The Messenger", Renner takes on the true life tale of San Jose Mercury News journalist Gary Webb, wh...

Sexy Male Stars At The 86th Annual Academy Awards
It's usually all about the ladies and who they're wearing on the Oscars red carpet. But there are plenty of guys that look really incredible too.

Bradley Cooper, who was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for "American Hustle," wore a Tom Ford tuxedo to the event. He was accompanied by his British model girlfriend Suki Waterhouse.

Jared Leto easily stole the coveted Oscar from Cooper for his role in "Dallas Buyers Club." But we don't think he won the red carpet competition.

Leto's tux was an unusual combination of black and white with a red bow tie. We can forgive him his style choice b...

Rumor has it Matt Damon will be returning to the Jason Bourne series - but that doesn't mean that Jeremy Renner is out.

In fact, it appears Damon and Renner could actually team up in a blockbuster film. Twitchfilm reports that Universal is gunning for Damon and original director Paul Greengrass and is not ruling out another appearance of Renner's Aaron Cross character.

However, Universal told Variety there is no truth to the rumor despite the appeal of having both actors in the same film. However, a writer has been hired to begin work on the next installment - and Jeremy Renner is already...

For those who missed the August theatrical release, Bourne Legacy is a film that stands well on its own merits while also expanding the scope of the successful franchise. It doesn't snub the previous Bourne films; rather, it establishes a compelling new hero and his story parallel to previous events, while leaving the door wide open for convergence at a later date.

Review: 'The Bourne Legacy' Stands On Its Own Merits

Universal is hoping that The Bourne Legacy does well enough that it prolongs the life of the franchise - and with the finished product, the expansion of Bourne is off to a great start.

In the weeks if not months leading up to today's release, there's been a lot of talk about what Legacy isn't, and to evaluate it based on that is to short-change a film that is exactly what we go to the movies for in the summer. This movie never claimed to be a direct sequel to the existing trilogy, and to this critic's knowledge, writer/director Tony Gilroy never turned his back on Matt Damon's Jason ...

So what happens when Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass decide that they no longer want to be a part of the super successful franchise known as Bourne?

Do the producers say fine and walk away from their billion dollar cash cow or find another way to keep it going? Silly question, right?

Which brings us to "The Bourne Legacy," written and directed by Tony Gilroy (writer of the previous Bourne films) and starring Jeremy Renner as the new super spy who the evil CIA wants to kill. Sound familiar? Of course it does, and that's the problem.
