The National Enquirer OUTS The Hurt Locker’s Jeremy Renner

The National Enquirer has enjoyed its share of outings. Larry Birkhead. Gayle King. Meredith Baxter. And yes, everyone’s favorite “hiding in plain sight” ‘mo, Anderson Cooper. The tabloid’s batting average is pretty high, which lends some credence to their claims about the Oscar-nominated actor.

The Enquirer’s main evidence comes from a quote — given to another publication years ago — from a forming acting coach, who said, “I have never had the pleasure of meeting Jeremy’s boyfriend, but the fact that Jeremy is gay has never been a primary concern.”

Is it right?  Is it wrong? But most of all in this day and age should it  REALLY matter?

  1. First of all I'm so sad that as a society many people define another's self-worth by their sexual orientation. It shouldnt' matter if someone is gay or straight and the very fact that people gasp at the notion of someone being gay is off the charts wrong.

    That being said, I think the National Enquirer is grasping at very thin straws here, as usual. They take one ounce of credibility they got from the Edwards thing and blow it out the window with this. Jeremy is not gay ladies and gentlemen.
