Evangeline Lilly Visits Marvel Co-Star Jeremy Renner After Snowplow Accident: ‘It’s A Miracle’

By Movieguide® Contributor

Over a month since actor Jeremy Renner was hospitalized after a horrific snowplow accident, Marvel co-star Evangeline Lilly said she was surprised at how fast he was recovering after serious injury.

“I walked in his house and got chicken skin because I was like, ‘Why are you mobile? Why are you mobile? What’s happening?’” she told ACCESS HOLLYWOOD.

“I expected to sit at his bedside and hold his hand while he moaned and groaned in pain and wasn’t able to move. He was wheeling himself around, laughing with his friends,” the ANT-MAN AND THE WASP star added. “It’s a miracle. It’s a straight up miracle. He’s made of something really tough that guy. You’ve always been able to see that in him and he is recovering incredibly.”

Lilly starred alongside Renner in the MCU’s AVENGERS: ENDGAME, as well as Oscar-nominated, THE HURT LOCKER.

Fellow AVENGER Paul Rudd also had a chance to check up on Renner: “He’s doing alright. He’s doing well… He’s the best guy and he’s awesome.”

Renner recently revealed in an Instagram post that he had broken over thirty bones and shared his gratitude for all the support as he progresses on a long road to recovery.

“Morning workouts, resolutions all changed this particular new years,” Renner wrote along with a photo of him in physical therapy. “Spawned from tragedy for my entire family, and quickly focused into uniting actionable love. I want to thank
EVERYONE for their messages and thoughtfulness for my family and I. Much love and appreciation to you all.”

Movieguide® previously reported on the details of the 52-year-old’s near fatal accident that happened January 1st of this year:

New details emerged from a recent police report from the snow plow accident that left Jeremy Renner hospitalized and in critical condition.

Renner was trying to save his adult nephew from being hit by the plow when he was crushed, the sheriff’s incident report revealed.

The reason for the accident? The machine started to slide sideways after Renner attempted to use the plow to get his nephew’s car out of the snow. He jumped out of the plow without activating the emergency brake.

“When Renner attempted to stop or divert the Pistenbully to avoid injury to (his nephew), he was pulled under the vehicle by the track and run over,” the incident report read.

Renner’s nephew helped him as they waited for medical assistance and the actor was airlifted to a trauma center.

He sustained serious injuries to his legs and chest, breaking more than 30 bones, and has undergone multiple surgeries. Renner returned home earlier this month after spending two weeks in the hospital.
