Guns blazing: Jeremy Renner let the Kardashians know their place
Jeremy Renner may be Hollywood's rising leading man but he is not afraid of letting his fellow celebrities know their place.
The Bourne Legacy star has hit out at Kim Kardashian and the whole clan after branding them as 'ridiculous people with zero talent.'
The 41-year-old made the damning statement about the reality TV family and joined a growing number of stars that have become vocal about the group.
When speaking to The Guardian newspaper, Renner said: 'Oh, all those ridiculous people with zero talent who spend their lives making sure everyone knows their name. Those stupid, stupid people.'
The Avengers Assemble actor is not the first person to publicly scold the Keeping Up With The Kardashians cast, as Daniel Craig already had his say.
The James Bond star told GQ magazine: 'Look at the Kardashians, they're worth millions. I don't think they were that badly off to begin with but now look at them.

'You see that and you think "what, you mean all I have to do is behave like a f***ing idiot on television and then you'll pay me millions".
'I'm not judging it - well, I am obviously.'
Scathing: Jon Hamm also hit out at the Kardashians
Mad Men actor Jon Hamm also referred specifically to Kim when he commented on the cult of celebrity in an interview with Elle UK magazine, saying that it made ' f***ing idiots' like Kim and Paris Hilton into millionaires.
'Whether it's Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated.
'Being a f***ing idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you're rewarded significantly', he told the magazine.
He later defended his comments on The Today Show and said: 'It's a part of our culture that I certainly don’t identify with, and I don’t really understand the appeal of it other than in a sort of car crash sensibility.
'And it’s not something that I partake in or enjoy, but it is what is and here we are.'
Hamm's co-star Vincent Kartheiser, who plays Pete Campbell in the Sixties drama, agreed with Jon's comments.
He mused: 'Our society enjoys to turn on the television and see someone who’s maybe awful and they can say, 'Well at least I’m not as terrible as that person.''

The public backlashes against the Kardashians began after Barbara Walters questioned their credential during a television interview.
Walters candidly quizzed the family about how they were able to stay in the spotlight.
Barbara said: 'You don't really act; you don't sing; you don't dance, you don't have any - forgive me - any talent!'
Khloe was the first to chime in, and said: 'We're still entertaining people.'
