Last night, fellow blogger Heather Waters and I went on a field trip to the Bourne Legacy premiere at the Ziegfeld Theater in New York City. You could say Heather is a bit of a fan. She’s posted about the 5 signs Renner’s Hawkeye and Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow are TOTALLY IN LOVE on our sister site Heroes and Heartbreakers, and has shared countless stories and interviews about what makes Renner a truly awesome character and human being—he doesn’t take his fame for granted, he’s a real man’s man, and, of course, his beautiful biceps. After last night, I gladly join Heather in rooting for Team Renner. (I don’t think there were any teams to begin with, but I’ll still be on his side any day!)
The premiere itself was very small by Hollywood standards. Luckily, Heather and I stood next to some movie premiere veterans who gave us the lowdown on where Jeremy Renner and other cast members (Rene Russo [who’s married to director Tony Gilroy’s brother, Dan Gilroy], Rachel Weisz, Edward Norton, and Stacey Keach, who all made appearances) would be coming out. The best surprise of all: Jeremy Renner would be walking the line of fans and signing autographs.
