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.

Jeremy Renner's flight from Los Angeles to London was not without a little, um, turbulence. On his recent trip, The Bourne Legacy star's attempt to catch some shut-eye up in their air resulted in some problems below the belt.
"I had to get off the plane to go to work, so I had to sleep on the plane," Renner, 41, recalled on Tuesday's Jimmy Kimmel Live! "So I take a little sleeping pill, pop it and realize nothing's happening – but something else was happening."
What he thought was Ambien was actually Viagra, given to him by a friend.

Superheroes have it easy: We only expect them to save the planet every now and again. Superhero movies, though, have the daunting task of illuminating our souls.
Dazzling effects, strong stories and bold heroes mean bubkes unless they inspire us. Thank the gods, The Avengers is just what it ought to be – inspired.
After five recent films about the solo exploits of Marvel heroes Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Captain America (Chris Evans) and the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo, outclassing Edward Norton), The Avengers weaves its narrative threads into a vibrant display of effects wizardry with characters to love and wit to spare.

In real-life, Robert Downey Jr. doesn't possess superhuman strength, genius intellect or that famed power suit.
But Iron Man, his on-screen Avengers alter-ego gifted with his body, brains and superhero wardrobe, isn't lacking – and fans of the franchise agree.
According to data collected on the movie's Facebook page, 37 percent of fans polled would most like to be Iron Man (identity: Anthony Edward "Tony" Stark) if they could transform into any Marvel superhero.
