Jeremy Renner was far from his best behavior on Oscars weekend! The American Hustle star attended the Kari Feinsten Oscars Style Lounge on Feb. 28 at the Andaz Hotel in Hollywood, and an insider reveals his shocking behavior to Star.
According to our source, the actor “couldn’t have been more unappreciative and rude,” despite being doted on with free gifts, from an extravagant trip to Bali through the Mulia-Mulia resort, to snowboards through GNU snowboards. Wearing a sweat suit and sunglasses (which he never took off throughout the evening), Jeremy was overheard telling photographers, “Absolutely no photos!”
His request is strange, considering photos are the point of gifting suites — vendors pay money to promote their products, and the stars reap the benefits by simply taking a photo and being polite. “Jeremy flirted rudely with female vendors…touching their arms and shoulders, referring to them as ‘babe,’ and making sexual references,” the insider explains.
At one point, the 43-year-old was offered a pair of Carrano Shoes for his girlfriend, to which our witness says he rudely responded, “My girlfriend doesn’t deserve shoes!” He also made his publicist try all the food before he ate it himself. “She actually stood there and tasted each Kneady Bakery treat before he dare take a bite.”
You don’t have to play nice to hustle in America!
