When Jeremy was nominated for an Academy Award for his role in “The Hurt Locker,” he was living in a tent in the master bedroom of one of his projects. He did not have running water or electricity on the day he put on his tuxedo to attend the ceremony.

Renner is a fan of the San Francisco 49ers.

In 2019, Renner’s ex-wife Sonni Pacheo revealed that Renner allegedly put a gun in his mouth and threatened to kill himself. He ended up shooting the gun into the ceiling while his young daughter was in a bedroom elsewhere in the house.

In July 2020, Renner’s ex-wife Sonni Pacheo requested that he be drug tested to ensure the safety of their daughter.

Pacheo also claims that Renner is not adhering to proper social distancing guidelines and brings “several young women” over to hang out with him regularly. The court documents reveal that someone on Instagram anonymously tipped Pacheo off about Renner’s Fourth of July party at his Lake Tahoe area mansion. The documents read: “In these messages, this person told me that Jeremy was having people over at his Reno house and that nobody was wearing masks. The above party sent me numerous Instagram posts showing people at Jeremy’s Reno house including several young women. This person also sent me screenshots of young women announcing they were in Lake Tahoe  and wearing t-shirts that say “Camp Renner.” They are not wearing masks in the photos.”

Renner and Pacheo’s custody dispute is ongoing. The former spouses are engaged in a years-long bitter custody dispute over their daughter. Pacheo has also accused Renner of flying back and forth to his home in Reno during the stay-at-home orders with their daughter Ava.

Real Estate: Jeremy leads somewhat of a double life. When he is not acting, he’s flipping homes in Los Angeles and has perhaps made more money from real estate than he has from acting paychecks. To date, he has flipped more than 25 houses in the Los Angeles area. As he has progressed in his career, so have the homes.

Jeremy first started flipping homes to support himself as he tried to make it in Hollywood with longtime friend Kristoffer Winters. In the early 2000s, they focused on $500-600,000 modest homes in L.A,’s San Fernando Valley. They would aim to flip the homes for $800-900,000. Fast forward a decade to 2013, Jeremy and Kristoffer flipped a single home for $24 million. They paid $7 million for the home and then poured $10 million into renovation costs, for all-in $17 million. That’s a $7 million profit on this one sale. The buyer was British property developer Christian Candy.

Jeremy’s primary personal residence, partially for tax purposes, is a six-acre property near Lake Tahoe in Nevada. He also owns a home in Los Angeles.
