The Avengers star loved reteaming with Tom Cruise and Simon Pegg for Rogue Nation, but the London shoot was difficult because he was always fighting to find time to spend with his kid in Los Angeles.

He says, "It took me 11 hours away from Ava. That was what caused any cantankerousness, agitation or negative feelings I had about the whole moviemaking experience.

"All I worried about once I landed in London was, 'When do I get to see my little munchkin next?' If I knew it was in two weeks, fine. If they said, 'We don't know how long you're shooting', well, Mr. Renner's not going to be a happy man in that makeup trailer in the morning.

"If I did not have my daughter, I would have enjoyed being back in London, and I would not have come back to the States hardly at all. But 40 flights from Los Angeles to London and back nearly killed me."

The experience has made Renner rethink his film choices moving forward.

The actor explains, "I see anything that takes me away from my daughter, whether it's something good like making Mission: Impossible 5 or something bad like my divorce, as a distraction and an obstacle. Now, if anything takes me away and I don't get to see her, I just won't do it. I don't care what you pay me.

"All my energy goes towards her and her well-being. We (estranged wife Sonni Pacheco and Renner) split the time with Ava equally now. When it's daddy and Ava time, that's all I do."
