The Outing of The Hurt Locker‘s Jeremy Renner

The Hurt Locker‘s Jeremy Renner took his mom to the Oscars. He likes showtunes. He enjoys emotionally complex roles. All of this makes him a homosexual, the National Enquirer reports.

Under the editorship of David Perel, the 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.

It doesn’t make any of it right.

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.”

Now you can throw into the mix Renner’s hug with co-star Anthony Mackie, called out by the Today show, and you have plenty of periphery evidence that Renner is A Gay. And then there’s his 2002 flick Dahmer, where he plays the serial killer stalking a gay victim:
