Jeremy Renner is just as stealthy as his Hawkeye alter ego.
The Avengers: Age of Ultron actor revealed he has secretly married Sonni Pacheco. Renner flashed his wedding band during a Kill the Messenger screening in Washington, D.C., Tuesday. "I have tried to protect my family's privacy, my wife's privacy. I don't need her to get hammered with my life," he told the magazine Capitol File.
Asked point blank if he's a married man, Renner replied, "Yes."
Why keep the news a secret?
"It's annoying being followed when I'm with my family," the 43-year-old, two-time Oscar nominee said. "It's not just me—everyone [in Hollywood] has to deal with that. I've been talked about a whole lot, because the less I put out there, the less people know, and it makes it interesting, I assume."
Renner also spoke about raising their 17-month-old daughter, Ava Berlin.
"It's the best thing I have ever done—doing it later on in life. By then I achieved a lot of things that I wanted to achieve; I'm so blessed for that. Now I can really spend time with family. The only thing I think about when I'm not with my baby is, 'How do I get to my baby?' I need to get to her, and I'm very miserable when I don't see her. I really love being a father. The only that has changed is my perspective on things. I still work, probably even more. It used to be all for myself so I'm not old and broke. All these things I still do, but I do it now for the future of my baby, and if it gets in the way of her well-being, then I stop," the Hurt Locker star said. "I can't wait for her to get older, but I really enjoy her now. She's the greatest. She's into her sticker phase...As a father, I'm going to make it very difficult for her to find a man."
