Jeremy Lee Renner was born on 7 January 1971 in Modesto, California USA of German, Swedish, Scottish, English and Irish ancestry.

So how rich is Jeremy Renner now? Sources estimate that his current net worth adds up to $35 million. Most of his net worth has been accumulated from his work as an actor, while some of it comes from his work as a musician, singer and songwriter.

Jeremy Renner first became interested in acting when he was studying at Modesto Junior College and decided to take a drama class. As with many actors, Renner began his career by appearing in less significant movies and TV shows such as “National Lampoon’s Senior Trip”, “Deadly Games”, “Strange Luck” and “A Friend’s Betrayal”. 2002 was the year that brought Jeremy into the spotlight when he played the main role in the biopic horror film “Dahmer”. His performance didn’t go unnoticed – in 2003 he starred in the crime thriller “S.W.A.T”, then in 2004 in the drama “The Heart is Deceitful Above All Things”. Another of Jeremy’s important roles was in the romantic drama “Neo Ned” – the film won all 10 awards it was nominated for. Later, Jeremy starred in the war film “The Hurt Locker” which came out in 2009. This role was extremely important in Renner’s career – he was nominated for several awards in the Best Actor category and has been nominated for an Academy Award, which was a first for him. The second time he was nominated for this prestigious award (also his first Golden Globe) was for his performance in the 2010 crime drama “The Town”. In 2011 Jeremy Renner appeared as Hawkeye for the first time in Marvel’s “Thor”. He was not credited for this role and was mainly chosen because of knowing the character very well, but being chosen for this part has undoubtedly added significantly to his overall net worth.

Even after that short cameo appearance, Jeremy was recognised and accepted by Marvel fans. In 2012 he returned as Hawkeye in “The Avengers” for which he won a MTV Movie Award and has been nominated for a few other awards. Starring alongside such huge stars as Tom Cruise in “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol” proves how successful Jeremy has become over the years. It has been confirmed that he will return to the franchise of “Mission: Impossible” in the 2015 movie “Mission: Impossible 5”.

It is worth noting that Jeremy Renner is also interested in music – he is a songwriter, singer, drummer, guitarist and keyboard player. While it isn’t his main source of income, it still adds a little to his overall net worth.

In his personal life, Jeremy is married to Sonni Pachero (Canadian model) and they have a daughter named Ava Berlin (born in 2013).

#Fact
1 He is left-handed.

14 Hawkeye's monologue during the car chase scene with Black Widow in Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) about remodelling the character's house is a thinly-veiled reference to Renner's real-life hobby of remodelling Hollywood movie star's homes.
15 Wife Sonni filed for divorce after 10 months of marriage citing irreconcilable differences, requesting that their prenup be disregarded as fraud.

#Quote
1 (On The Kardashians) Oh, all those ridiculous people with zero talent who spend their lives making sure everyone knows their name. Those stupid, stupid people.
2 Happy to let Tom Cruise do stunts, would rather have a doughnut.
3 When you Google yourself and the first thing that comes up is 'Jeremy Renner gay,' it's like, 'Oh, now you've arrived. You're now a giant movie star.' So I just had a big laugh about it. I don't care, ultimately, if that's what people want to think, read and care about. Fucking say whatever the hell you want about me.
4 The Avengers (2012) was the first big movie I signed on to. It was something Zak Penn was the writer on; he's a friend. Then I met [Marvel Studios president and Avengers producer] Kevin Feige, and Zak was really pushing, saying 'You guys have got to hire Renner.'
5 [on filming The Hurt Locker (2008)] People had full-on mental breakdowns; I did. Pure loneliness, that's what it came down to. It was a whole rainbow of good and bad.
6 [on one Christmas Eve, when he was with his family in a bar] This guy chokes me with the scarf I was wearing. He called me a fag 'cause I was wearing a scarf! Then he shoved my sister and I got behind him and I choked him out - put him to sleep. [without any irony] I'm not violent.
7 [on deciding whether or not to do The Bourne Legacy (2012)] It was a game-changer in anonymity, and I like my private life and my family. I had to consider how this was going to affect everyone I love -- especially myself.
8 I want my personal life to be personal ... And I don't care if you're talking about things that are true, you're still talking about my personal life. How about I go peek in your window, take what underwear you wore last night, whose husband you were fucking, and shove that in the megaphone throughout your neighborhood? How does that feel? It's none of your goddamn business.
9 [on fear] That emotion even conquers love, and that makes me sad. [on having spent eight years trying to analyze the roots of his own fear(s)] Finding out what I was afraid of, what stops you in your life, what gets in the way. Fear is just not a part of my life - so much so that if it's involved in somebody else's life and they're close to me, I won't be around them.
10 [2009, on studio execs] I think it's standard for the industry, that people aren't that imaginative. And, you know, I understand it. Name an actor...like, you think of Bruce Willis, you think of Die Hard (1988) and all those movies and that thousand-yard stare. Well, he's a better actor than that. But you kind of have to prove that to them - what else you can do and what else you are - or they won't think that about you. Nor should they!
11 [2009, on his love of music] I started as a young man, as a drummer, then moved to guitar, and piano so I could song-write. I was always a singer. But I was always focused on being an actor as my trade. Music I do just for me. The movie business is very difficult but the music business is just impossible. So I'll play in bands and record and play songs with other people, but for me it's a form of expression that all I need is me. I don't need cameras or agents, I can just have a piano and sing and feel totally verified...I'm actually looking to do a project where I could really try to explore that a little bit more in cinema, a rock star or something. I'd really, really love to do that.
12 [on playing Jeffrey Dahmer] Well you know it happened so fast...it was the complete opposite of The Hurt Locker (2008) where I had time to prepare. I mean, I didn't even know who Jeffrey Dahmer was, and then four days later after reading the script we're shooting principal photography, and two weeks later we're done. It was such a whirlwind.... I mean to relate to that experience, I had to do a lot of work and allow myself to go places that were a little scary. You know when you play a guy like that it allows you the freedom to explore really weird parts about you. And it's ok. In order to really get it, I've got to allow myself to go there.
13 [on working with Ben Affleck on The Town (2010)] It was a lot of fun. We had a blast. It was like shooting a short film with one of your good buddies. He set a really good tone on the set, just really affable as a human being. He made it very pleasant for everyone...I always knew he was smart, because I'd see him on interviews and he was such a charming dude. And every day, I was surprised by just how smart he is. He's almost autistically smart, the guy is. It's ridiculous. And so experienced in the industry. He's obviously been through a lot, as an actor, as a writer, in good and bad ways. With that experience, he's very wise to a lot of things. And it's invaluable.
14 [2009] Most people my age - and I'm going to my twenty-year reunion next weekend - they're all three divorces deep, and if they're happy, right on. But that just wasn't the path I wanted to go on. I was just getting into trouble, drinking, and doing stupid things until I stumbled onto acting class my junior year in college. The sense of self, the purpose. It opened this Pandora's box of emotions and it went from there.
15 [2009, on his childhood] My sister was the complete opposite, she had a hard time growing up, and I was just always the happy kid. I played the drums, had my mullet, drove around on my motorcycle making out with chicks, just having a good ol' time. But it just happened while growing up - all these divorces, separations, moving to a different school every year - that things started to take a toll. The stage became a great playground for me to express feelings, and in my household there wasn't a place for me to do that. It was a great venue for me to hide in a character and express rage and sadness, and I created these really disturbed, complicated characters.
16 [on shooting The Hurt Locker (2008) in the unbearable heat of Jordan] We were already pushed to the limits. People wanted to quit. All the departments were struggling to get their jobs done, none of them were communicating. There was a lot of fighting going on. The heat does something to your brain, and on top of that I was in this bomb suit and I had explosive diarrhoea, so I was like: 'Get this thing off me!' I wanted to punch people. You could not pay me enough money to do it again.
17 Braveheart (1995) pops into my mind. I like the graphic war element. It takes place in Scotland and England, and I love English history. (Cinematographer) John Toll is amazing. It's a gorgeous film. I've seen it 35 times.
