FANS have lined the streets at the Australian premiere of The Bourne Legacy, with traffic momentarily blocked off as star Jeremy Renner zoomed up on a motorcycle.

Renner, an avid motorcyclist, says his arrival was a nice excuse to drive Sydney's streets.

"Yeah any chance I can (get), you know, why not, right?" he said.

Renner is no stranger to action roles, having appeared in The Avengers, The Hurt Locker and Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, and he says he did the majority of his own stunts in the new Bourne film.

However, while sightseeing on his first trip in Australia, Renner has chosen to stay more low-key, leaving the adrenaline-junkie activities for when he's making films.
