Jeremy Renner, the star of the No. 1 box office movie "Bourne Legacy," is the latest celebrity to take a jab at the Kardashians.
In an exclusive interview with The Guardian UK, Renner discussed his disdain for fame.

"I know it's a cliche but I never wanted to be famous. I don't believe anybody wants to be famous," he said.
When Renner was asked what he thinks about the Kardashians, he rolled his eyes and called them "ridiculous people with zero talent who spend their lives making sure everyone knows their name," then adding that they are "stupid, stupid people."
Renner isn't the first celebrity to criticize the reality stars for achieving fame and success overnight perhaps without putting in the same amount of effort that many other celebrities do.
"Whether it's Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated. Being a f**king idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you're rewarded significantly," "Mad Men" star Jon Hamm told Elle UK magazine. "Incuriousness has become cool... It's celebrated. It doesn't make sense to me."
Kim Kardashian responded to Hamm's comments on Twitter:
"I just heard about the comment Jon Hamm made about me in an interview. I respect Jon and I am a firm believer that everyone is entitled to their own opinion and that not everyone takes the same path in life. We're all working hard and we all have to respect one another. Calling someone who runs their own businesses, is a part of a successful TV show, produces, writes, designs, and creates, 'stupid,' is in my opinion careless."
Renner's portrayal of Aaron Cross in "The Bourne Legacy" helped the film become the No. 1 movie in the country during its opening weekend with a reported $40.3 million in sales, according to several reports.
The action drama knocked "The Dark Knight Rises" down to third place, which earned $19.5 million the same weekend.
"The Dark Knight Rises" had been the No. 1 movie for three straight weekends since its debut.
Renner has been nominated for an Oscar twice - for his roles in "The Hurt Locker" and "The Town." He also appeared alongside Tom Cruise in last year's "Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol" and played the Marvel character Hawkeye in this year's blockbuster film "The Avengers."
