Lonely Jeremy Renner bought a dog because he can't find a woman willing to take a back seat to his work.
The Hurt Locker star hasn't had much luck finding love because he's usually too absorbed in his craft so he scooped up a new furry friend to help cure his loneliness.
He tells Details magazine, "I have a wonderful life, but it means nothing if it cannot be shared. That's all I'm missing right now. It's a little unbalanced for me. Right now the only thing consistent in my life is that little dog. That's why I got it. I was getting really lonely. I needed somebody or something to be there with me through the whole journey."
And although Renner is eager to find the right person, he's still not willing to sacrifice his career.
He adds, "Even now, any woman would take a No. 2 seat to my job... There've been a handful of girls over the last years. But it's been very difficult. How does it go any further?"
