"I’d like to have eight running around,” the 46-year-old actor says of possibly making his 4-year-old daughter Ava a big sister, "But at this point ... that’s not in my future."
Renner and Ava's mom, Sonni Pacheo, divorced in 2015 after just 11 months of marriage. And in the interview, he seems to confess a fear of never getting backed to that point of a shared partnership in child-raising.
"It takes two," he says. “Doing it alone is not fun. You want to share the experience. You kind of want a partner."
"I’ve done so many amazing, cool-ass things in my life ," Renner adds. "But I think as we get older, there’s more value in doing something with somebody.”
While he's not confident in having any more kids, Renner certainly appreciates the daughter he had. After his split in 2015, the Oscar nominee told ET that all his focus was on his child.
“I want to be home as much as I can, as much as I can afford to,” he told ET at the time. “Spending time with my daughter and my family are the most important things to me.”
Wind River is in theaters on Aug. 4.
