Jeremy Renner walks first red carpet since near fatal snowplough accident

Jeremy Renner was assisted by a cane and a motorised scooter as he attended his first red carpet event since his serious snowplough incident earlier this year.

The Hawkeye actor, 52, appeared in person at the premiere of his new Disney Plus show Rennervations in Los Angeles on Tuesday, and was cheered by fans as he arrived.

The Bourne Legacy star posed for pictures with multiple members of his family, though later had to pause briefly and use the scooter to continue with press interviews.

The event comes just over three months after the incident on New Year Day, during which he ‘almost died’.

The Marvel was crushed by his own six-tonne snowploughing machine as he tried to help his nephew near to his US home.

The actor sustained horrific injuries, including breaking over 30 bones in the incident, a collapsed lung and a pierced liver, and was air-lifted to hospital in Reno, Nevada.

Speaking to Variety, Jeremy admitted he looked ‘a little beat up right now’ but said the show was ‘propelling’ him to get better.

‘I set out a goal to be walking this carpet. And here I am enjoying it,’ he said.

‘Otherwise it would have gone to an abyss with no date and lost traction and excitement and I would have been very, very, very frustrated.

‘I’m very excited right now because we’re here.’

Speaking about his plans to return to acting, he told The Hollywood Reporter: ‘I’ll always be busy doing things I love to do.

‘I’ll be a little bit more focused on the things that really have value and matter to me … and I’ve got to appreciate my amazing fans because they end up loving the things that I do”.

It comes after the actor appeared on his first late night television programme, Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Monday, in which he was given a standing ovation by audience members.

Jimmy described him as ‘indestructible’ and said there was now ‘no question’ as to who the toughest Avenger was.

During an ABC interview with US journalist Diane Sawyer, which aired last week, Jeremy went into detail about the incident and his ongoing mental and physical recovery.

He said he had ‘no regrets’ about what had happened and would ‘do it again’ to save his nephew.

Rennervations arrives on Disney Plus on Wednesday
