Jeremy Renner: ‘I Want Ava To Experience Adversity’

The Avengers star Jeremy Renner covers the latest issue of Nobleman and opens up about raising his 4-year-old daughter Ava.

On fatherhood: “I think my job as a father is make it impossible for her to find the version of a man that I will show her. That’s my job every day. To be consistent, like the stone in the garden. Sometimes it sucks to be the stone but you need to be there. I want to impart self-assuredness, confidence. How to find beauty in her self and how to problem solve and overcome things.”

On his hopes for Ava: “Whether or not she ends up being a mini-me or not, that’s just my ego, I want her to realize who she really is. I want to put her in front of things and have the experience where she has to make decisions. I want her to experience adversity because I think struggle is so important. I want to show her unconditional love and support as well. Growing up I knew that no matter what my parents would love and support me, even if that didn’t completely understand what acting was, I knew they had my back.”

On co-parenting Ava with ex-wife Sonni Pacheco: “I’m not always going to be there” when Ava gets older, so I want to make sure “she’s able to handle things on her own.”
