Apparently, Jeremy Renner meant "Sorry, not sorry?"

Despite apologizing for a recent interview during which the 44-year-old actor and his Marvel's Avengers co-star Chris Evans referred to Black Widow as a "slut," Renner went on Conan Monday to reaffirm and further expand on his feelings about Scarlett Johansson's character.

"I'm pretty unapologetic about a lot of things," said Renner when asked about the incident by Conan O'Brien.

"But yeah, I got in a lot of Internet trouble. I guess that's a thing now," the actor noted. "Mind you I was talking about a fictional character, and fictional behavior."

"If you slept with four of the six Avengers, no matter how much fun you had," Renner said to Conan, "You'd be a slut."

"I'd be a slut," he added. "Just saying."

Here's the interview.

Following the original interview, both Renner and Evans issued apologies, with many fans noting that Renner's seemed somewhat insincere.

"I am sorry that this tasteless joke about a fictional character offended anyone," said Renner in the wake of the outcry. "It was not meant to be serious in any way. Just poking fun during an exhausting and tedious press tour."

Evans apology by contrast, took much more ownership of their words.

"Yesterday we were asked about the rumors that Black Widow wanted to be in a relationship with both Hawkeye and Captain America," Evans said. "We answered in a very juvenile and offensive way that rightfully angered some fans. I regret it and sincerely apologize."

Well, now maybe we have some idea why.

Now watch a much younger Renner learn the ropes on set of an early acting gig.
