Living large thanks to his Marvel contract. Jeremy Renner is known as Clint Barton (a.k.a. Hawkeye) to fans of the comic book film series, but he’s also racked up a major fortune from TV roles and other blockbuster movies, which all have contributed to his hefty net worth.
Before he was living large in Hollywood, the actor had an extremely humble beginning during the early days of his career. During an interview with Men’s Health from November 2021, Jeremy admitted that he allotted $10 a month to food.
“I had no electricity, no gas, no hot water. So, I learned to play guitar. I lit candles. I made a vibe out of it. I said, ‘Hey, look, this is romantic. It’s not depressing that I can’t afford power,’” the Mayor of Kingstown actor recalled. “If I sat and cried about it, which I probably did once or twice, it doesn’t really move the needle. Changing and shifting your perspective — that’s the only thing we have control of in perpetuity.”
Now he’s a man of many talents — and giant paychecks. Keep reading for details on Jeremy’s net worth and how he makes money.

Jeremy Renner Works In Real Estate Flipping Houses
Aside from his acting roles, Jeremy has a newfound love for flipping houses.
“It kept me learning and growing and failing and succeeding. It shaped who I am in a lot of ways.

I like the limitations of taking something that was once amazing, reconfiguring it and making it work for today. It’s a different art.”
