In a very powerful message of strength, Jeremy Renner presents himself with the scars of the close call he had to pay the ultimate price on the cover of the Men’s Health July/August issue. 53 years old, the star exposes the major traces of scars marking his back, shoulders, and tummy – the outcome of several surgeries and a life-threatening rear-end collision with a snow plow on New Year’s Day of 2023.

More wounds are present on his legs during the portrayal of workout shorts in the magazine. When thinking about the scars on his face, Renner says they are good to have because they make him remember that “it could have been a really bad day.

”The incident is explained in a sheriff’s report, which states that Renner was helping his nephew when the snow plow he was using began sliding downhill, and Renner fell on it in a bid to stop it from moving.

Renner's Resilient Recovery

The injuries as described were grave, such as at least 32 broken bones, internal bleeding that caused a lung to collapse, ruptured liver, and injuries on the face.

Recovery needed a progressive, gradual mobilization before Renner could get involved in the intensive daily physical training he presently does. During a medical crisis, Renner described the experience of time, place, and physicality evaporating as he hovered just above death, which granted him a feeling of ‘exhilarating peace’ that encompassed all the experiences and relationships in one’s life.

He paints death as an ability to see beyond the physical and into the more abstract world—the world created in the mind. As for love, one of the film’s major themes joined with self-identity, Renner pointed out that the accident resulted in his increased readiness to accept and show love—a difficult yet positive alteration in his perception of self and public image.

This has affected not only the perceptions other people have about Renner but also his image of himself. Reviewing the decisions on his return to acting, starting with the play “Mayor of Kingstown,” Renner also had some doubts about his physical shape.
