Signs of life from Jeremy Renner (51)! After his bad snow plow accident on New Year's Day and the survived operations, the Hollywood star finally contacted the fans personally.
On his Instagram account he posted a photo that shows him visibly taken and with tubes in his nose in the hospital bed. The short message to his 18.6 million followers: "Thank you all for your kind words. I'm too broken to type now. But I send you all love," says the caption. He apparently made his fans happy with this, so far he has had 3.7 million likes for his post.
Renner suffered blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries after being involved in a snow plow accident on his property in Reno, Nevada on Jan. 1 and being rushed by plane to a hospital. He underwent surgery on January 2 and remained in critical but stable condition in intensive care afterwards.
A spokesman told People magazine on Tuesday that Renner "on Sunday cleared snow from his driveway so his family members could leave his home after spending New Year's Eve together. He also helped clean his neighbor's house from the clearing snow as everyone up there had been without power for 24 hours and there had been a big snowfall so he was helping everyone clear the snow so people could come out".
In a statement earlier that day, Renner's rep said, "Jeremy's family would like to thank the incredible doctors and nurses who took care of him, the Truckee Meadows Fire and Rescue, the Washoe County Sheriff, Reno Mayor Hillary Schieve, and the Thank you to the Carano and Murdock families, who are also overwhelmed and grateful for the tremendous love and support from his fans."
Renner is best known for his role as Hawkeye in the Marvel Cinematic Universe beginning with 'Thor' (2011) and 'The Avengers' (2012). He most recently played the character in the Disney series Hawkeye. Renner was nominated for an Academy Award for his performances in The Hurt Locker (2008) and The Town (2010). He also starred in Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol (2011), American Hustle (2013) and Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation (2015).
