Jeremy Renner shared that he broke over 30 bones in the near-fatal accident. However, he’s somehow managing to keep his spirits up. “Morning workouts, resolutions all changed this particular new years. Spawned from tragedy for my entire family, and quickly focused into uniting actionable love,” Renner captioned an Instagram photo that showed him receiving treatment on a hospital bed. Renner thanked his fans and friends for their outpouring of well-wishes and vowed, “these 30 plus broken bones will mend, grow stronger, just like the love and bond with family and friends deepens.”
Chris Hemsworth — who plays the mighty Thor in “Avengers” — offered up love and support for his injured costar. “Your [sic] a champion mate! We love you,” he commented on the Instagram post. Renner’s relationship with his fellow Marvel stars is clearly tight, despite him admitting that at first, he and the other cast members were more than a little jealous of hunky Hemsworth’s chiselled abs of steel and bulging biceps.
“He’s the tallest, he’s the most good-looking,” Renner admitted on Dax Shepard’s “Armchair Expert” podcast. He shared that Robert Downey Jr. had suggested knobbling Hemsworth to remove him from the picture. After insisting that “[He’s] too good-looking. He’s too tall. He’s too charming,” Downey Jr. (presumably) joked, “We’ve got to break his knee. We’ve got to take him out.” A joke that Renner is very likely not finding funny right now.
