Emotional Jeremy Renner thought it was the end
Photos of Jeremy Renner’s horrific snowplow accident were released on “Good Morning America” for the first time ahead of his upcoming interview with Diane Sawyer. During the hour-long special, the “Hawkeye” star opened up about the unfortunate incident that occurred on January 1, 2023, outside his residence in Nevada, leaving him fatally injured with over 30 broken bones, a collapsed lung, and a pierced liver.
Jeremy Renner explained that he was trying to save his nephew from the plow when it hit him, but despite his injuries, he refuses to be haunted by the memory of the accident. His family members, including his nephew Alexander Fries, will also appear in the special.
The interview also reveals that Renner wrote his “last words” to his family on his phone while in critical condition. He also stated that there was a moment he was pondering whether his body would become a science experiment.
Fortunately, the actor recovered, and video clips appeared in a wheelchair doing leg exercises. On January 5, more videos were released from the hospital showing his swollen and bruised face. Renner has since been released from the hospital and recovering at home.
Renner expressed confidence that he would do it again, referring to his act of bravery in saving his nephew from the snowplow. Despite his extensive injuries, he said he had been refueled and refilled with love and titanium.
