What Makes Him So Successful?
They sometimes say it’s best to start from the bottom as you can learn a lot from down there. Although Renner didn’t exactly start from the bottom, he did learn his trade from appearing in independent films early on before the meteoric rise to superhero movie stardom in his role as Hawkeye. He seems to be a man who has a vision; this is apparent in his other position away from acting. The American is also a real estate developer, running the business with best friend and fellow actor, Kristoffer Winters.
Jeremy Renner’s’ first movie National Lampoons Senior Trip, is quite apt considering the trip he has been on since. Let’s not forget it was a movie that got slated by critics. But not to be put off by such damming negativity, Renner rose through the ranks, gaining critical acclaim along the way with his roles in some truly epic action movies, of which, I’m sure there’s more to come.
