Jeremy Renner Focuses on ‘My Family’ Amid Life-Long Recovery Process

By Movieguide® Contributor

Nearly a year and a half since his snow plow accident, AVENGERS star Jeremy Renner is still focused on his health, recovery and family.

In 2023, the actor was crushed by his snowplow. Renner sustained serious injuries, broke over 30 bones and underwent several surgeries.

He’s used his time since then to recover and knows he will be in recovery for the rest of his life.

“I had to accept it for the rest of my life. There’ll be nothing normal or as it was prior to the accident,” Renner told PEOPLE. “By the way, I’m okay with that. It’s making my life better. I’m healthier because of it.”

“I get to focus more on my health and well-being than I ever did before because I have to,” he continued. “Recovery will be until I’m out of this old hot mess of a body. It was a way for me to really accept that it is going to be forever.”

“I feel it is my duty to get better for my family, for myself, and for all those who helped me,” he posted on Instagram about his healing journey and partnership with Brooks Running.

“In 2023, actor Jeremy Renner broke 38 bones in an accident and was told he may never walk again,” Brooks wrote. “Against all odds, Jeremy returned to running. His recovery is a testament to the power of love, hope, and titanium and how adversity can propel us to our ‘there’ — whether a new beginning, dream, or goal.”

“I have no business doing a running commercial,” Renner explained. “15 months ago, I was dead. My doctor said I would never walk again. They said, ‘You’re never running again. That’s not happening.'”

“I’m pretty tenacious and stubborn. Guess I can’t be killed,” he joked.

The biggest inspiration for his recovery? His daughter, Ava. Movieguide® reported:

A year after his near-fatal snowplow accident, AVENGERS star Jeremy Renner is sharing that his daughter was his number one reason for his recovery.

“Reason number One for my recovery is her,” Renner wrote on his social media on Monday. “I asked her to ‘wait for me’ when I first saw her January 14 as I arrived home. As I got better, she got better, less afraid. There is simply no better motivator to recover than to heal your family and friends….With gratitude always, thank you all for your love and support this last full year. I needed every ounce of goodwill and prayer 🙏🏼.”
