Jeremy Renner says he’ll be run over by a snowplow “again” if it means saving his nephew’s life.
“I’ll do it again,” he told a shocked Diane Sawyer in his first sit-down interview since the freak accident.
In the interview, which will air in full on Thursday, April 6, Renner reflects on the excruciating pain he felt when he believed he was “dying.”
“(I felt) all (pain),” he recalled before the harsh sound of the 9-1-1 call played. “I woke up every moment.”
Although he’s suffered injuries like broken ribs, broken lower jaw, broken leg, and more, the “Avengers” star hopes to one day get back to doing his own stunts.
“I chose to survive. It won’t kill me, no way,” he said of his injury. “I’ve lost a lot of my flesh and bone in this experience. But I am invigorated and filled with love and titanium.”
Renner, 52, was crushed by his own snow on New Year’s Day. When he pushed his nephew out of the way of the ironing machine, he suffered a “blunt chest injury” that required him to be airlifted and undergo emergency surgery.
The “Hurt Locker” cast returned home from the hospital a few weeks later. and began recording intense recovery and upright workouts. which he started just two months after the accident.
“Anyway,” he captioned the video of himself exercising.
In another picture, Renner is shown working. “Mental recovery” as well, posting “The Book of Awakening” by Mark Nepo.
“It’s a miracle. It was a straightforward miracle,” said Renner co-star Evangeline Lilly of his recovery. “He’s built on something very strong, that guy, you can always see that in him. He is making an incredible recovery. And I am very grateful.”
