Love for acting
Jeremy Lee Renner was born in Modesto, California, to Valerie and Lee Renner, on January 7, 1971. Renner graduated from high school in 1989. He went to Modesto Junior College, where he studied computer science and criminology. Later, he took up drama class as an elective and decided to pursue acting.
How Jeremy Renner makes his net worth
Renner is a seasoned actor full of variety. He is known for taking up antagonist roles. His initial debut was critically panned in the 1995 comedy ‘National Lampoon’s Senior Trip’.
As expected, the early days were not easy. He made ends meet by working as a makeup artist. But the early 2000s were a blessing and Renner appeared in several films, television shows, music videos and more. He received critical acclaim for his role as Jeffrey Dahmer the serial killer in the film ‘Dahmer’ in 2002.
He was even nominated for Best Lead Male for that role. Some of his other projects were ‘S.W.A.T.’, ‘The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things’, ‘A Little Trip to Heaven’, ‘North County’, ‘12 and Holding’, ‘Neo Ned’, ‘Love Comes to the Executioner’, ‘The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford’ and the movie ‘28 Weeks Later’.
Jeremy Renner and his net worth rise
Then in 2009, he landed a role as a bomb disposal expert in the ‘The Hurt Locker’. This was his big break and this role brought him his first Oscar nomination for Best Actor. His performance in ‘The Town’ got him a second Oscar nomination and his first Golden Globe nomination.
Renner even took over the Bourne franchise from Matt Damon with ‘The Bourne Legacy’. And finally, in 2015 he landed the role of Hawkeye in ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’. He played Hawkeye again in ‘Captain America: Civil War’ and ‘Avengers: Endgame’. He continues with the same role in the Marvel series ‘Hawkeye’.
For the love of philanthropy
Jeremy Renner, who has accumulated millions, over the years is said to have made a whopping $15 million in ‘Endgame’ alone. That is, reportedly, the largest amount of money for any role he has played to date. Renner, along with other Marvel’s Avengers, donated $5 million from their paychecks to help ill children in hospitals around the world.
Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Paul Rudd and Brie Larson unveiled the donation of money and toys to benefit charities and children’s hospitals during an event at Disney Resort in California. Jeremy Renner, known for his heart of gold, has also contributed to numerous charities with his growing net worth.
Renner volunteered to narrate a book written by author Rebecca Wilson Macsovits and her son Guion. Guion happens to have Down syndrome. At the ‘Avengers: Endgame’ premiere, Guion connected with the actor and Renner decided to lend his voice to the project.
Jeremy Renner supports the following 13 charities with his net worth:
- American Foundation for AIDS Research

- Entertainment Industry Foundation
- Exceptional Minds
- Feeding America
- Got Your 6

His life outside acting
Renner married Canadian model Sonni Pacheo in 2014. They have a daughter together, Ava Berlin, who was born in 2013. Pacheo filed for divorce from Renner later in 2014, citing irreconcilable differences.
Jeremy Renner takes his money home
Renner leads a double life. When he is not acting, he’s flipping homes in Los Angeles. He has probably made more money from real estate than he has from acting paychecks. Apparently, to date, he moved around and flipped 25 houses in the Los Angeles area. As his career progressed, so have the homes.
Renner flipping homes goes back to early days in acting when he did so to support himself in Hollywood with friend Kristoffer Winters. During the early 2000s, they focused on $500,000-600,000 modest homes in LA’s San Fernando Valley.
Then they would flip the homes for $800,000-900,000. A decade later, Renner and Winters flipped a single home for close to $24 million. They had only paid $7 million for the home and then another $10 million for renovation. That is a $17 million home they sold for $24 million, making a $7 million profit on this one sale.
Renner’s primary personal residence is a six-acre property near Lake Tahoe in Nevada. He owns a home in Los Angeles that he visits every now and then.
