“Thank you all for your kind words. 🙏. Im too messed up now to type,” the “Hawkeye” actor posted on Instagram along with a selfie showing facial bruising. “But I send love to you all.”
Renner was hospitalized following an accident with a snow plow on Sunday. Prior to his update on social media, the Marvel actor, 51, was in “critical but stable” condition, according to his team.
“We can confirm Jeremy is in critical but stable condition with injuries suffered after experiencing a weather related accident while plowing snow earlier today,” a representative for Renner previously told Variety last night. “His family is with him and he is receiving excellent care.”
Renner was at his home in Nevada when the incident took place. In a statement, the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that deputies responded to “a traumatic injury” around the Mount Rose Highway near Reno on Sunday morning. The actor was the only person involved in the accident and was flown to the hospital.
The region where Renner owns a ranch, which is located above Lake Tahoe in the Sierra Nevada mountains, has received a significant amount of snow in the past few weeks. In mid-December, Renner shared a photo on social media from his home, “Lake Tahoe snowfall is no joke.”
The actor is best known as the superhero Hawkeye in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and has appeared as the character numerous times, including in The Avengers and on last year’s Disney+ series Hawkeye. He currently stars as Mike McLusky in the thriller series Mayor of Kingstown. The new season premieres Jan. 15.
