To hear Jeremy Renner tell it, in some ways, making “Arrival” was just another day at the office.
Sure, the story is one of an alien visitation in which his character, physicist and mathematician Ian Donnelly, is among the welcoming party. But then this is the same actor who is the Marvel superhero archer Hawkeye in the “Thor” and “Avengers” franchises and IMF Field Operations Director William Brandt in “Mission: Impossible.” Renner is used to insane situations and acting in scenes where what he is interacting with will not become “real” until postproduction.
“So there was kind of a weird, creepy alien thing about it already — a guy in black tights with a long, 40-foot pole with a bean bag at the end of it. ... And the set was eerily quiet, because sets usually aren’t so quiet. You really have to use your imagination.
“I was astounded when I saw ‘Arrival’ for the first time.”
Jeremy Renner gets in gear for the new issue of #legend. The Oscar-nominated actor gets candid about life in the limelight, his daughter, Ava and his ultimate duet-partner. The full interview and photos can be found at #Legend's website. Here are some highlights from the interview:
Jeremy on his love for singer Pink: “I love Pink. She is more pop, and her voice is very rock, soul and R&B. From the looks of her, you don’t expect it. You’re like, hey, what’s this girl doing singing pop songs?”
Jeremy on what makes a house a home: “The memories created in the house make it a home for me. Do I feel like I’m comfortable enough to strip down butt-naked in every room that we design, in this room?”
Jeremy on how many kids he would want: “Ava was such an angel baby and never acted out. So I want to have, like, five of them. I just want to come home and have five girls adoring their daddy.”
Here is the B-Roll for Arrival, plus a couple more interviews with Jeremy and Amy.
