It's taken a few months, but after dealing with the death of his French bulldog Franklin in March, Jeremy Renner has opened up his heart to some new pooches.
"I decided to get a couple more of the same sort of dog, French bulldog," he told Jay Leno on Friday's episode of The Tonight Show. Renner also revealed that Franklin died of a heart attack.
The late-night host couldn't help but give the Bourne Legacy star a hard time about adopting such a small dog breed, comparing him to Paris Hilton. But the actor was quick to defend his choice.

That's one way to get your message across!
While promoting new film Darling Companion, in which she and Kevin Kline play a longtime married couple who takes in a rescue dog, Diane Keaton brought out a pup looking for a home of its own Thursday during an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
After Leno held up the cover of AARP magazine, on which the actress poses alongside her rescue dog Emmy, Keaton rushed offstage and soon returned bearing a puppy named Clover in her arms.

What's in a name? For Jennifer Aniston and her new puppy Sophie, there's the memory of a few tears.
"We were [at the shelter] for three hours. I was almost walking out with three puppies," she told Jay Leno in a Friday appearance on The Tonight Show. "That's why we named her Sophie, because it was [like] Sophie's Choice. I was crying – it was so hard."
The actress, who adopted the pit bull mix with boyfriend Justin Theroux, said a friend involved in animal rescue had her on speed dial when a litter of 10 puppies showed up at a shelter one Sunday.

Appearing on The Tonight Show on Tuesday, Jenna Fischer was asked by host Jay Leno if her parents were thrilled over their first grandchild.
"This is the second grandchild," The Office star corrected, "but first grandson."
When Leno jumped on the word grandson, Fischer confirmed that she and husband Lee Kirk are expecting a boy.
"This is the exclusive, Jay," says Fischer, 37, who appears in the upcoming film A Little Help. "When I went to my movie premiere the other day a reporter asked me if I knew what I was having, and I said I do, but I’m not sharing that yet because I’m [going to] have Jay be the first to know.”

Joy Behar may have been the guest on Tuesday's The Tonight Show, but host Jay Leno was the one who really dished.
In a short conversation backstage, Leno told Behar for her HLN show that he and Conan O'Brien were both "treated terribly" in January's shake-up at NBC, which eventually restored him as host of The Tonight Show.
"Conan got screwed. I got screwed," Leno said. "This is TV. The reason show business pays a lot of money is so when you get screwed you've got something left over."
But Leno expects O'Brien, who recently announced a 30-city North American tour, to return to television eventually.

Loaded with one-liners, President Barack Obama visited the Tonight Show on Thursday night and likened his new job to competing on a reality show: "I do think in Washington, it's a little bit like American Idol. But everybody is Simon Cowell."
The appearance by the First Guest provided Jay Leno with what he called "the most exciting show of my life" – and fodder for jokes and banter. "A lot of people were surprised that the president came to NBC," said Leno. "You'd think by this time, he'd be tired of big companies on the brink of disaster."
Obama, dressed in a dark blue suit with a red tie flipped up the tails of jacket when he sat down, then crossed his legs and talked about the perks of the office, starting with his new mode of transportation.
"How cool is it to fly in Air Force One?" asked Leno.

It's official! After he leaves The Tonight Show, Jay Leno will keep America laughing – an hour and half earlier.
On Tuesday, NBC announced that Leno will stay with the network and host a new primetime comedy/talk show five nights a week starting in the fall of 2009. The one-hour show will air at 10 p.m., making it the first program of its kind to be featured on primetime on a broadcast network.
"Just when I think I'm out, they pull me back in," Leno jokingly told reporters at a press conference in Los Angeles Tuesday.
