Jeremy Renner's star has been rising steadily over the last year, culminating in this year's Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol (technically last December, but carrying over into this year), the Avengers, and then headlining the Bourne Legacy. It's a given at this point that women would be all over him - in fact, there have been many rumors flying all over the place about his reported dating status, whether he's gay, and what kind of relationships he has. Most internet gossips seem to agree on one thing: Renner is definitely not gay, and he likes his women. He is, of course, very discreet about his relationships - which is also one of the reasons that the Internet seems to love making up rumors about him; because they can't find the actual facts.
Now, he's been spotted on a lunch date with a mystery brunette. So far, people are saying she could either be an actual date or a member of his family. Most people seem to be in agreement that she was not a family member, although there are a few that disagree with that. That leaves a potential girlfriend.
Now, the difficulty with identifying this woman (which can be seen in the Just Jared pictures of Renner) comes from how private Renner is about his private life. Whether she is, in fact, a girlfriend or a family member can only be clarified by him, and it most certainly won't be. He has remained notoriously tight lipped on the subject of his romantic daliances or lack thereof, and he definitely won't start opening up now.
