- Jeremy, 52, suffered more than 30 broken bones after being crushed by a seven-ton snowmobile on New Year’s Day at his Lake Tahoe home.
- DailyMail.com has exclusively learned that his accident has caused a change in perception and that ‘Hollywood is no longer a priority’.
- The Avengers star is awaiting the release of his latest non-Hollywood documentary Rennervations, which will debut on Disney+ in April.
Jeremy Renner’s Hollywood career has been thrown into serious doubt today, as sources close to the star have revealed that acting is no longer a ‘priority’ for him following his skiing accident.
An expert who recently spent time with Jeremy, 52, told DailyMail.com exclusively that ‘although he still loves acting, Hollywood is not his priority’.
According to the source, Jeremy’s focus turned away from his screen career after his one strangled strangled[edds]accident at his home in Lake Tahoe, where he was crushed by a 14,000-pound snowmobile, broke more than 30 bones,’ said the source.
“Jeremy believes he survived the crash to use his tools to really make a difference in the world,” the insider shared.
“He’s very proud of the work he’s done, but this whole situation shows that there’s a lot more he can do to help others,” the source said.
Jeremy has since left the Lake Tahoe home where the accident happened and returned to his Los Angeles property, where he is focusing on his recovery – unable to walk due to injuries sustained during the accident.
The source continued that Jeremy’s mother Valerie, 69 – who accompanied him to the 2010 Oscars – has been a ‘huge’ source of support for the star, revealing that she is ‘by his side as much as possible’.
“His mother comes to stay with him most weekends, as well as his daughter Ava,” the friend said, referring to his nine-year-old ex Sonni Pocheco.
“He’s really focused on his recovery and is rehabbing to learn how to walk again. Jeremy knows he is very lucky to be alive.
“Every day is a little better than before, and he’s definitely making progress, but the progress is slow.”
DailyMail.com has contacted Jeremy’s spokesperson for further comment.
On New Year’s Day, Jeremy was run over by seven tons of snow while helping his nephew get his car out of his driveway near Reno, Nevada, after the car got stuck in the snow.
However, his snowmobile started to slide on the road after the car was pulled over, causing the actor to jump out of his cab.
After getting out of the car, Renner realized that it was possible to hit his nephew, who was with him at the time of the accident. The Kingtown star then attempted to re-enter the rink to divert his route but was pulled down the left side of the road and run over in the attempt.
In a 911 call from a neighbor, Jeremy was heard complaining of back pain. The caller was afraid of bleeding from the injury.
He was flown to a hospital in Reno where he was listed in critical condition with 30 broken bones, a broken chest and lacerations.
Although Jeremy is back in Hollywood after the accident, fans will still be able to see him on screen when he releases a four-part series, Rennervations, on Disney + in April.
Reformation – which the star completed before the skiing accident – details Jeremy’s ‘A lifelong desire to give back to communities around the world by reimagining purpose-built vehicles to meet community needs.’
The Marvel movie legend joked that his Avengers fans thought he was out of the iron because this project is different from his previous work.
“I’m buying these scrapped government vehicles to help repurpose them to serve this community again in a different way,” Jeremy said in the project’s trailer.
“I decided to rethink the restoration and restoration of these cars, and I wanted to do it. It is for communities and helping children all over the world.’
“There’s a lot of concern in the conversation about the Avengers family like, you know, what’s Renner doing? He’s going off the rails a little bit,” he added.
Although he has not been able to promote Rennervations as he would like to now, Jeremy seems to have a positive view of his involvement in the future.
“So excited to share the #rennervation show with all of you @disneyplus coming soon!!!’ Jeremy wrote in a promotional post about the show.
“As soon as I get back on my feet, we’re coming for you, all over the world… I hope you’re ready!!!’
In addition, Jeremy did his best to promote season two of the Paramount Plus series The Mayor of Kingstown, which opened on January 15.
Jeremy has continued to update his social media followers on his recovery and progress, which began when he took a selfie in the days following the accident from his hospital bed in the ICU.
“Thank you all for your kind words. I’m having a hard time writing right now. But I’m sending you all love,” she wrote in the caption next to a picture of Jeremy with scars all over his face.
He later shared a video of himself being pampered by his supportive sister and mother as he received a relaxing head massage.
A ‘big day’ in the ICU, it turned out to be a fantastic sports day for my sister and mum. Thank you sooooo much,’ he tweeted sweetly.
Later that month, Jeremy shared with his followers videos of what appeared to be him being pushed into a room for a CT scan and MRI.
In February, the star said he was doing ‘whatever it takes’ in his recovery, sharing a video of himself trying to improve his leg strength with the help of a Technogym bike.
He added that he was also prioritizing ‘mental recovery’ as he hugged himself by the fire and opened The Book of Awakening, a ‘spiritual diary’ written by philosopher, poet, and cancer survivor Mark Nepo.
