Add “The Bourne Legacy” star Jeremy Renner to the list of celebrities who find the Kardashian family to be extremely annoying.
As Renner’s latest film pushed “The Dark Night Rises” out of the top box office spot when it hit theaters, the actor had nothing but nasty things to say about Kim Kardashian’s family.
“Oh, all those ridiculous people with zero talent who spend their lives making sure everyone knows their name. Those stupid, stupid people,” the “Bourne Legacy” actor told the Guardian, according to the New York Post, when asked about the Kardashians.
This is not the first time the reality stars have been dissed by celebrities.
Last year, actor Jonah Hill told the Huffington Post, “The fact that the Kardashians could be more popular than a show like ‘Mad Men’ is disgusting. It’s super disgusting to be a part of that culture.”James Bond actor Daniel Craig referred to them as “f**king idiots who get paid millions of dollars to make spectacles of themselves,” in an interview with British GQ.
And “Mad Men” actor Jon Hamm made headlines when he told the UK version of Elle magazine, “Whether it’s Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian, or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated.”
It is likely that most people will attribute Kim Kardashian’s claim to fame to a sex-tape that was allegedly released by singer Ray-J, her then boyfriend, in 2007. The video, featuring himself and Kim Kardashian, certainly increased the reality star’s visibility and has since become infamous. Prior to this tape, her name was not as well known as it is today. After the video, people became more interested in Kim Kardashian’s image, and she posed that same year on the cover of Playboy and was featured in her own reality series along with her two sisters and parents, titled “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” which documents her “career” and family life.
Since the sex tape was released, she has also been featured on the cover of numerous magazines around the world, including FHM, Cosmo, Self, and Harper’s Bazaar. In 2008, Kardashian appeared as a contestant on the seventh season of reality show “Dancing with the Stars.” By 2010, she had numerous endorsement deals, on everything from shoes to fast food.
Last year, Piers Morgan, a British journalist, interviewed Kim Kardashian on his CNN show
“Piers Morgan Tonight.” He asked Kim Kardashian: “If I were to ask you what is your talent, would you have any?” Kim Kardashian replied:
“I would absolutely say that I think marketing is a skill and I think that fashion as well I mean…each sister has been a stylist at some point in our lives. We own 3 successful clothing stores … I’d like to think we’re very determined and hardworking.”
It is evident that Kim Kardashian’s image is very complicated, but she is evidently doing something right. She has over 15 million followers on twitter, and made the number two spot on Forbes’ Highest Paid Actresses On TV List — raking in a staggering $18 million during the past year.
Do you think the Kardashian family has talent, or do you agree with actors such as Jeremy Renner and Jon Hamm?
