On January 1 this year, the star of the “Avengers” series Jeremy Renner fell under a working snowplow weighing over six tons. According to a report released in January by the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office, the actor tried to stop the machine, rolling towards his nephew, but was “drawn under its left track.” The 52-year-old was taken to hospital in critical condition. He suffered, among others: chest trauma and numerous fractures. Now he told how that event influenced his perception of the world.
“I feel very blessed and very fortunate that I can now stand up straight, walk and live my life to the fullest,” Renner said.

Speaking to CNN, Renner admitted that now, almost 10 months after the snowplow accident, time has more value to him. Now he feels “more clearly” who he wants to spend his time with and how. The “Avengers” star admitted that the event in which he almost lost his life “gave him many gifts.” “When you’re tested physically, emotionally and spiritually, when you’re tested in every possible way, and then you get through it… it’s something that’s hard to explain,” he said.
– Persistence. Resilience. It’s a matter of mentality. Now it’s in the back of my mind. I know how to deal with pain. The mind is responsible for this. It’s all in your head. If you can get through all that, you feel lucky,” Renner added, explaining what he meant by the “gifts” he received as a result of the accident.
