Tom Cruise Inspired Jeremy Renner Take Care Of His Body
After working with Tom Cruise on "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol," Jeremy Renner was inspired to take better care of himself.
Renner admits training with the action star gave him motivation to start looking after his body.
He told the Los Angeles Times, "He was such an amazing mentor to me, and just so supportive and being so excited that I was doing some of these things (stunts). He gave me some really great advice about how to treat your body, essentially, how to take care of yourself.
"I'd always been an athlete and physical, but he turned it into a whole 'nother (sic) thing about how seriously important it is that you don't want to get injured. So he got me really headstrong about taking care of my body."
Renner stars in "The Bourne Legacy," which sidelines main character Jason Bourne in order to focus on a fellow estranged assassin (Jeremy Renner). It hits theaters Aug. 10.
