Jeremy Renner is smiling nine months after his horrific snowplow accident.
The actor has proven his resilience in recent months, from using a walking stick during public appearances to not using assistive devices. The star has proven that nothing can stop him, especially after he suffered 30 broken bones when he was dragged under a seven-tonne snow plow in January.
Jeremy Renner’s thoughts on recovery
On his Instagram Story, the father-of-one shared a poster of the NFL game he attended on Sunday. The image featured players from two teams, the San Francisco 49ers and the LA Rams, as well as the scores showing that the former won the game.
Included was a caption in which the “SWAT” star commented his excitement about being on the road. In his words, he showed his new appreciation for life and exuberantly remarked, “It felt really great to get out and participate in life.”
In addition to his joy at not staying down, the “Dahmer” actor radiated positivity in another snapshot of himself and his sister. The 52-year-old opted for a relaxed outfit: a black T-shirt, a jacket and a face mask.
Meanwhile, his companion and siblings paired it with a black top over blue jeans. In the picture, the “Mayor of Kingstown” star wrote: “My sister and my sister @sofistadium @49ers let’s go.”
While fans join him in celebrating Renner’s strength, it’s important to remember that this isn’t the first time he’s been spotted without his cane. At Kate Beckinsale’s 50th birthday bash last month, he was seen making confident moves with the help of his friend, fellow actor Casey Affleck.
The “Hawkeye” star radiated joy and flashed a bright smile. His previous reliance on a cane seemed to be a thing of the past as he embraced the celebrations with elation.
The “American Hustle” actor wore a chic ensemble of white pants, a light blue shirt and a denim jacket for the party. Meanwhile, his friend opted for a relaxed vibe, a green shirt paired with blue jeans.
This appearance marked a significant step forward in his recovery, as prior to the event he had made his interview debut on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” proudly shows the walking stick.
With the trusty wooden cane at his side, the “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” star gracefully and decisively danced across the host’s stage, seizing the moment with determination.
The Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters actor reflects on his life-changing journey
In May, five months after a traumatic start to the year, The Blast was released reported that Renner sought solace and reflection at Lake Tahoe. This picturesque location holds great significance for the Marvel star as it is where his harrowing incident took place, which marked a crucial turning point in his life.
The TV personality posted a video on his Instagram in which he hinted that he was heading out to spend some quality time with family. Accompanied by Mariah Carey’s tune “Dream Lover,” the footage showed his scenic drive along a winding road lined with stunning trees.
In the caption, he wrote, “Lake Tahoe / Home #family #lakeday.” Fans reacted enthusiastically and with admiration to the “Wind River” actor’s video. One user enthusiastically commented: “Yes!!! Have fun🔥,” while another called the view “majestic and impressive!!.”
Many sent their congratulations and love and encouragement, as this supporter said: “Beautiful scenery and I hope you are well.” We love you. Be strong and stay safe. I wish you a great and adventurous weekend.”
At the same time, another praised his music choice, saying: “Perfect BG sound 🎶 I think 😊 Please be safe and take care 🙏 Sir Barton 💪💪.” In his first social media update since the snowplow incident on New Year’s Day, Renner warmly thanked those who stood by him during his recovery and offered their well-wishes.
Prior to his post, Renner’s representative released a statement confirming his critical but stable condition. Publicist Samantha Mast thanked him for the overwhelming support and kindly asked that everyone continue to think about his recovery.
The “28 Weeks Later” star then posted a selfie on Instagram from his hospital bed, showing his injured face and the presence of medical tubes. In the caption, he wrote: “Thank you everyone for your kind words. I am [SIC] I’m too confused to type now. But I send you all my love.”
