Jeremy Renner sought solace and relaxation with a visit to Lake Tahoe over the weekend.
The year got off to a terrifying start for the Marvel star when he experienced a harrowing incident while using his snow plow that resulted in him breaking over 30 bones, which led to multiple surgeries. After a challenging journey of recovery, the Hollywood actor revisited the scene of a life-changing event five months ago.
Jeremy Renner is spending the weekend at the scene of the accident
The details of the mishap that befell the “Avengers” star had garnered widespread attention and concern from fans and the entertainment industry alike. Since then, the father of one child has been on a journey of recovery and focused on healing and rebuilding his life.
During the drive, the entrepreneur shared a video on his Instagram page in which he hinted that he was traveling to spend time with family. Accompanied by Mariah Carey’s song “Dream Lover,” the clip captured his scenic drive down a winding road lined with magnificent trees.
In the caption: He wrote: “Lake Tahoe / Home #family #lakeday.” Fans expressed excitement and admiration for the “Dahmer” actor’s video, including this user who raved“Yes!!! Have fun🔥.” This follower described the view as “So majestic and impressive!!”
Others wished him well, sent him their love, and encouraged him. One netizen wrote: “Beautiful scenery and I hope you are well. We love you. Be strong and stay safe. I wish you a great and adventurous weekend.” While another praised his music choices, saying: “Perfect BG sound 🎶 I think 😊 Please be safe and take care 🙏 Sir Barton 💪💪.”
Located on the California-Nevada border, Lake Tahoe is significant to him because it is close to Washoe County, the site of his ill-fated snowplow accident in January. His actions show his gradual return to routine as he embarks on the journey.
In his first social media post after the snowplow accident he suffered on New Year’s Day, Renner expressed his gratitude to those who have supported him throughout his recovery and wish him well.
The 28 Weeks Later star’s rep initially released a statement confirming his condition was critical but stable. His publicist, Samantha Mast, also thanked him for the love he was being shown and asked him to keep thinking about his recovery.
Following his team’s official announcement, despite his injuries, the 52-year-old shared a hospital bed selfie on Instagram that showed his injured face and the presence of tubes. In a brief caption, the actor wrote:
“Thank you everyone for your kind words. I am [SIC] I’m too confused to type now. But I send you all my best regards.”
The post drew an overwhelming response from fans and friends, including his Marvel Universe co-stars. Chris Hemsworth sent his well wishes, expressing: “Speedy recovery mate. Send love your way!” Chris Pratt also expanded his prayers, saying, “Keep praying, Brutha.”
One fan expressed his delight at Renner’s road to recovery and eagerly awaited his return. Another described him as a “superhero” and sent him many positive thoughts.
‘The Mayor of Kingstown’ star perseveres through physical therapy pain
Renner shared an update with his followers showing his unwavering determination to conquer the pain during his physical therapy sessions. The update came shortly after his first public red carpet appearance and marked a significant milestone since his near-fatal accident earlier in the year.
Despite the harrowing experience, The Blast noted that the acclaimed actor kept his followers updated on his recovery journey via Instagram, frequently sharing videos of his daily exercises.
In a clip posted to his site, the popular movie star did a series of warm-up exercises using two exercise ropes attached to a large machine. He wore a black face mask, matching long-sleeved hoodie, gray shorts and brightly colored trainers. In the caption, Renner wrote:
“UPDATE: I’ve decided to get over the pain of progression (that damn shattered shin) and take the new parts for a little test ride.”
Acknowledging the wondrous nature of the human body, he compared himself to the “Tin Man,” humorously referring to the need for oil in his new joints. Finally, he added: “Encouraged to keep going after this warm up (don’t tell my coach).”
