Jeremy Renner Left MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE for Family

By Movieguide® Contributor

Actor Jeremy Renner puts his family above his career.

In an interview with Collider, the 53-year-old explained why he left the MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE franchise for those he loves most.

“Yeah. I had to leave that. I was supposed to do more with them. I love those guys. I love Tom [Cruise] so much. We had so much fun, and I love that character a lot,” he said. However, “It requires a lot of time away. It’s all in London. I had to go be a dad. It just wasn’t gonna work out then.”

Now that his daughter is older, Renner says he’s open to the idea of returning to the franchise.

“Maybe now that my daughter is older that could happen. I’d always jump into a MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE anytime and back into Brandt. It’s great,” he added.

Renner’s daughter, Ava, is now 11. Several weeks ago, the AVENGERS star posted a sweet video of her to Instagram celebrating her birthday.

The video shows Renner hugging Ava and kissing her on the forehead. He wrote, “As she grows, so grows our love, respect, and adoration … Happy 11th Birthday to my number one ❤️‍🔥🎁❤️🎁 #luckyman🍀.”

“11. Can’t believe we are here brother. We love you Ava Berlin. 🩷🎉,” Actor Harold Perrineau commented.

“HAPPY BIRTHDAY AVA !!!! AWW that’s a awesome TERRIFIC dad,” another follower said.

Fox News reported, “Since Renner’s departure, 2018’s MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – FALLOUT and 2023’s MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE  – DEAD RECKONING PART ONE have been released. The untitled eighth installment of the series is slated for a May 2025 release after it was delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic and the SAG-AFTRA strike.”

Renner survived a traumatic slow plow accident last year, breaking 30 bones in his body. He credits his daughter as one of his reasons for fighting. In a music video released at the beginning of the year, he said, “To my daughter, my everything, my only thing, my number one. You are the best part of me. Your grace, your thoughtfulness, and your constitution make me so very proud.”

Movieguide® previously reported:

A year after his near-fatal snowplow accident, AVENGERS star Jeremy Renner is sharing that his daughter was his number one reason for his recovery.

“Reason number One for my recovery is her,” Renner wrote on his social media on Monday. “I asked her to ‘wait for me’ when I first saw her January 14 as I arrived home. As I got better, she got better, less afraid. There is simply no better motivator to recover than to heal your family and friends….With gratitude always, thank you all for your love and support this last full year. I needed every ounce of goodwill and prayer 🙏🏼.”
