The latest interview between Jeremy Renner and Diane Sawyer is sure to be emotional.
The actor from the Avengers sat down with the seasoned journalist to discuss his recuperation from the terrible event that happened on New Year’s Day when he was knocked over by a snowplow while attempting to stop it from striking his nephew.
In a clip from the interview that aired on Good Morning America on Wednesday, Renner sobbed as he described what happened after he was pulled beneath the 14,330-pound snowplow.
“If I was there on my own, that would have been a horrible way to die,” he told Sawyer. “And surely it would’ve. Surely. But I wasn’t alone. It was my nephew, sweet Alex, and the rest of the cavalry came.”
Renner added that he recognised the seriousness of what had occurred to him.
“So I’m writing down notes on my phone,” he said, “the last words to my family.”
The complete trailer, which was released on March 29, showed Renner’s nephew crying as he discussed the upsetting incident.
“I just perfectly see him, in a pool of blood coming from his head,” the nephew said. “I ran up to him, and, you know, I didn’t think he was alive.”
Renner had fractured more than 30 bones, yet he was still alive. Recovering has proven to be extremely challenging.
In his rigorous physical therapy sessions, which include walking on an anti-gravity treadmill, the star of the upcoming Disney+ series Rennervations has posted images to social media.
Still, in the new footage, Renner explained to Sawyer that he’d “do it again.”
“You’d do it again?” she asked. “Yeah,” he answered, “cause it was going right at my nephew.”
The interview with Renner will run on ABC on Thursday, April 6 at 10 p.m.
