Yes, Jeremy Renner might have survived an ax fight and picked up the action hero slack in both the Mission: Impossible and Bourne series, but that doesn’t mean he can’t have feelings! One feeling in particular, actually: loneliness. “People had full-on mental breakdowns; I did,” Renner told The Hollywood Reporter about shooting The Hurt Locker. “Pure loneliness, that’s what it came down to.” Misting up over his recently deceased French bulldog Franklin, Renner also admitted, “”He was my solution for being so lonely.” Oh no! There aren’t enough ax fights in the world to distract you from a puppy funeral!
Sadly, our eyes went from filling with tears to rolling around in their sockets (like tiny sprinklers!) when Renner took a moment out from his crushing ennui to rag on an ex-girlfriend. “That was part of the issue,” he says of his split from ex Jes Macallan, who apparently made the mistake of deciding to become an actress while dating Jeremy. “I was going through the Hurt Locker campaign and she’s like, ‘Where do I get headshots?’ ” Wow, Jeremy. You must have felt like the loneliest man who ever lonely-ed! Here, sit on this mountain top and consider humanity’s ineffable solitude. Also…you can cry some more about that puppy thing if you want. We know we will.
