Jeremy Renner

Jeremy Lee Renner (born January 7, 1971) is an American actor, singer-songwriter, film producer, former makeup artist, and musician. He is best known for his roles in The Hurt Locker (2008) for which he received an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor, and for playing Hawkeye in Marvel's The Avengers (2012). He also appeared in commercially successful films such as Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol (2011), The Bourne Legacy (2012), Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters (2013), and American Hustle (2013). 

Throughout the 2000s, Renner appeared largely in independent films such as Dahmer (2002) and Neo Ned (2005). He also appeared in supporting roles in bigger films such as S.W.A.T. (2003) and 28 Weeks Later (2007). He then turned out a much-praised performance in The Town (2010), for which he received an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor.

Renner was born in Modesto, California, to mother Valerie Cearley (née Tague) and father Lee Renner, who managed McHenry Bowl, a Modesto bowling alley, in the 1980s. His parents married as teenagers and divorced when he was ten. He is the oldest of five younger siblings. His ancestry includes German, English, Scottish, Swedish, and Irish.

Renner graduated from Fred C. Beyer High School in Modesto in 1989. He attended Modesto Junior College where he studied computer science and criminology, before he took a drama class and decided to start acting.

In a September 2014 interview, Renner stated that he is married to Canadian model Sonni Pacheco, but their date of marriage is unknown. Renner and Pacheco have a daughter, Ava Berlin, born in March 2013.


Renner also runs a house-renovating business with his best friend and fellow actor, Kristoffer Winters. In addition to acting, he has studied disciplines including world religion, criminology, Arnis (Filipino martial arts), and Muay Thai martial arts.
