Jeremy Renner has confessed he was "bummed out" when he realised he was starting to lose his privacy.

The actor - who found fame starring in Kathryn Bigelow's Oscar-winning 2009 film The Hurt Locker - told Esquire he knew life was changing when tourists started to turn up outside his house.

"I couldn't even take my garbage out any more," he said. "It bummed me out."

Jeremy - who will soon be seen in the lead role in The Bourne Legacy - also revealed that a strange confrontation with a yoga group having a class on his property was one of the final straws, and contributed to him putting his house up for rent.

He said he told the group: "Look, man, I don't come onto your porch and start doing deep lunges. Get the f*** out of here."

Jeremy also revealed during the interview that he used to spend his time doing karaoke before becoming a Hollywood star.

"I used to hang out at karaoke bars all the time," he said. "It was the most fun you could have when you had no money. I went [to Barney's Beanery] twice a week from 1995 until, like, 2002. Religiously."
