"That's an amazing thing. To suggest that it's negative, that being gay is a terrible thing, a perversion or whatever -- I just don't get it," Renner continued. "Don't you wish we were in a world where we're not shaming, judging and boxing people in?"
Instead of focusing on what's being said about him, the 44-year-old actor would rather draw his attention to his 2-year-old daughter, Ava, whom he shares with actress/model Sonni Pacheco.
"I see anything that takes me away from my daughter, whether it's something good like making Mission: Impossible 5 or something bad like my divorce, as a distraction and an obstacle," Renner said. "Now, if anything takes me away and I don't get to see her, I just won't do it. I don't care what you pay me. All my energy goes toward her and her well-being."
This isn't the first time Renner has expressed how his role as a father has changed how he looks at acting. In fact, he told Ellen DeGeneres that his love of being a dad has "kind of screwed" his career. See their chat:
