Jeremy Renner (“The Hurt Locker”) was recently involved in a stunt accident on the set of New Line Cinema’s action comedy “Tag,” and has injured both arms, according to EW. The actor appeared at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival over in the Czech Republic wearing two arm braces, completely nonplussed by his injuries. The actor has even posted a couple photos of his injuries on his Instagram. Take a look below.
Renner came to the Karlovy Vary Film Festival to promote his latest movie “Wind River,” which is currently playing at the festival. The film, which is Taylor Sheridan’s (“Sons of Anarchy”) directorial debut, follows a federal wildlife officer asked to help solve a murder on a Native American reservation.
Encouragingly, Renner said his injuries will not interfere with shooting “Avengers: Infinity War,” according to the Hollywood Reporter. Of his work on “Avengers: Infinity War,” Renner said, “I shall heal up before Avengers starts up again. I have fractured my right elbow and left wrist,” joking, “This is my face in pain.”
“It won’t stop things that I need to do. I heal fast and am doing everything I can to heal faster,” Renner said. He smiled as he remarked, “It won’t really affect my job. It affects how I get dressed in the morning — I cannot tie my shoes.”
