Is a Lady Hawkeye in our future?

Modesto native Jeremy Renner and superstar Lady Gaga have reportedly been spending time together.

The “Avengers” actor and Oscar-winning singer have been linked by celebrity magazines People and US Weekly. According to the unconfirmed reports, the two stars have been hanging out recently.

US Weekly alleges that the two aren’t “romantic at this point,” but have been together a lot. Representatives for Gaga and Renner have not commented on the reports.

Earlier this month Entertainment Weekly reported the two were spotted together in a Hollywood cocktail bar. Gaga gave a surprise performance singing Frank Sinatra standards for the crowd. Renner was reportedly sitting in a booth with her.

The two share an interest in music and acting. Renner is known for his role as Hawkeye in the “Avengers” superhero series, as well as Oscar-nominated turns in movies like “Hurt Locker” and “The Town.” His next film, the final in the franchise “Avengers: Endgame,” opens April 26.

Gaga is fresh off a best actress Oscar nomination for “A Star Is Born,” where she also took home the Academy Award for best original song in February. The international superstar is known for hits like “Bad Romance,” “Born This Way” and “Poker Face” and has amassed nine Grammy Awards. In 2015, she began showing off her acting chops with roles in the FX anthology series “American Horror Story” — for which she won a Golden Globe.

Beyer High graduate and Modesto Junior College alum Renner has been a music lover and performer throughout his career. He penned songs for the soundtrack of his upcoming animated film, “Arctic Justice: Thunder Squad,” which comes out this fall. Last year, he was the featured vocalist on DJ Sam Feldt’s single “Heaven Don’t Have a Name.”
