Los Angeles: Hollywood actor Jeremy Renner doesn't want to get involved in helping his female co-stars negotiate salaries following Jennifer Lawrence's essay about gender-based wage gap in Hollywood.

The 44-year-old "Avengers: Age of Ultron" actor said that it wasn't his job, reported Ace Showbiz.

"That's not my job," Jeremy told Business Insider. The actor made it clear that he made such statement because he's not well-versed in that area. "I don't know contracts and money and all that sort of stuff. I'm a performer and I know human behaviour."

Later on, Renner explained that he would ask other people who are more capable of dealing with that stuff than him to handle it.

"When it comes to that sort of stuff I let other people deal with that. I do what I'm good at, that's what I focus on," he added.
