What did Renner just say to her?

One of the few satisfying things about interviewing celebs is you get to ask miscellaneous stuff that you have personally been curious about — nothing to do with the interview, probably won't make the final piece but while you have them, could they clear up something for you? One of those moments came last weekend when I interviewed Jeremy Renner about The Town (about which my lips are sealed until the embargo is lifted), and got to ask him about my favorite photograph from last year's Oscar's season, showing him and Carrie Mulligan at the Vanity Fair party after The Hurt Locker's win. I've been curious all year as to what Renner had just said to her — she looks like she's about to pee her pants.
"You get the usual suspects when you go to all these parties and these events — they seem to last five months. You kind of get to know them a little bit. They're going through the same experience, most of them for the first time as well, so there's a shared experience and the intensity of just that... Oscar Pride. That was at the end of it. Regardless of whether we win or lose, it was great to win but we were just happy is was fucking over. And I don't remember what we were cracking jokes about everyone was just so stoked, it was kind of done, we could just celebrate, we didn't have to do interviews any more, just, what a great way to end. And she's an angel, she's such a sweetheart. It was one of those moments when.... oh man. I just couldn't believe it had turned out the way it had."

  1. Renner just said, "Really, Shyamalan wanted to cast you too?"
