Jeremy Renner, an extremely well-known and respected actor, made a name for himself through many projects like his work in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Hawkeye, Wind River, The Bourne franchise, and Mayor of Kingstown. Through these works, he has gathered a huge fan base, all of which were extremely concerned, when the actor faced a serious accident that left him terribly injured.
At the very beginning of this year, Renner got run over by a snowplow, after trying to save a family member.

Jeremy Renner Got a New Superpower
Jeremy Renner, recently shared details about his journey to recovery and everything he learned during the time. The actor spoke with CNN, where he talked about how he feels extremely lucky to be able to live his life the way he did before, being able to be upright and walk around. He added that his life feels a lot clearer after what happened.
“I just feel very blessed and very lucky to be upright and walk around and to live life. I’m very, very clear. My life is really lean, if that makes sense. There’s no fat in my life anymore. I don’t have time for that. So, there’s something really beautiful about having that superpower. I was really clear about how I want to spend my time, and who I want to spend my time with. This to me feels like family, sort of lifestyle things we talk about all the time. And then we have the spirit itself, it’s much more the shared experience. And that to me is where I want to spend my time.”
He added that after what happened, he doesn’t seem to have time for those unnecessary things now. He would rather have his life clear and spend time with those who care about him and he cares about, talking about his family. He added that this clarity almost feels like a superpower to him, allowing him to not waste his time on menial things and be with those who matter.
Jeremy Renner Learned a Lot
Jeremy Renner then went on to tell CNN about how not every change that accident brought into his life was negative. He elaborated on this, stating that he has received a lot of gifts, of a more knowledgeable kind, that have helped him lead a more meaningful life, in his definition. He then went on to explain with these gifts in question were.
“There is a lot of gifts that I received because of it. When you’re tested physically, emotionally, spiritually, in every way, and then to come through it, that’s something hard to explain. Perseverance. Strength. It’s all a mental game. I put it in my back pocket now. I know how to deal with pain. It’s all mind. It’s all in the mind. If you can sift through the fog of it all, I am very blessed.”
He started by explaining that when someone’s will and strength are tested in every way possible and they manage to make it through and survive, they come back a different person. He found it difficult to explain this in words but tried anyway. He added that perseverance and standing for all are like a mental game, that he has now, mastered. He knows how to deal with conflict and negative feelings in his life, as he has gained a better understanding of his mind, being able to look through the haze. This has made him feel extremely blessed.
