"That's not my job," Renner said. "I don't know contracts and money and all that sort of stuff."

The Avengers star said he is in favor of actresses receiving equal pay but would rather focus on the craft of acting.

"I'm a performer, and I know human behavior. When it comes to that sort of stuff, I let other people deal with that," Renner continued. "I do what I'm good at — that's what I focus on."
