Jeremy Renner gives it all to the craft, even when it literally breaks his bones.
The Avengers: Infinity War
star opened up to reporters
at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival on Friday about a stunt-gone-wrong on set of his upcoming comedy, Tag
, that resulted in Renner fracturing his right elbow and left wrist.
"It’s part of the job," Renner explained. There will be an effect to it, but it won’t stop me from doing things that I need to be doing ... I’ll heal fast. I’m doing everything I can to heal faster."
The actor went on to explain that Tag is, thankfully, lighter on stunts than his typical high-action fare.
“I’m doing a job [Tag] that isn’t really requiring a ton of stunts. It’s not an action movie; it’s a comedy. It just happens to have a few stunts in it," he said. "So I don’t have to beat a whole lot of people up or do anything crazy. So it won’t really affect my job."
Renner shared a pic to Instagram last month of his two fractured arms, writing, "Fall down seven times...stand up 8! #fixedup #pushthrough."
That's some serious devotion! Hopefully Renner is able to give those things some ice between takes.
Avengers: Infinity War is set to premiere on May 4, 2018 while Tag is slated to hit theaters on June 29 of next year.
