He broke them while fighting off those gay rumors. I KID!
Jeremy Renner is currently filming “a comedy” movie called Tag. You would think an action movie star like him would have the coordination or the appropriate amount of stunt people to keep himself safe on a shoot, but maybe not. Variety reports that he broke both arms while filming a stunt. Jesus, is it a comedy about mixed martial arts or expert skiing? Did the stunt guys bang in that day?
Jeremy was interviewed during the Karlovy Vary Film Festival in the Czech Republic, and explained that the fracturing of his right elbow and left wrist as “part of the job.” Maybe in some sort of work camp. Get a new agent?
“That’s how it goes. I’m sort of a problem solver, you know. 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.”
Lest you think he’s some sort of selfless tough guy, dude makes bank! He’s made at least a $1 million for each Avengers flick he was in. That sort of pay will get you out of bed and to work on time! What’s a few broken bones? You can buy a lot of painkillers and really attractive physical therapists.
Jeremy says that his injury won’t affect his job that much, but it’s making wearing shoes difficult. I’m not sure what this whole self-reliant schtick is all about. After breaking my foot one time, I basically channeled Cleopatra on her barge for the next several weeks. I’m still not sure why people were so reluctant to carry me around and feed me grapes by hand as I recovered from my grievous injury.
“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. 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. … It affects how I get dressed in the morning. I can’t tie my shoes, but outside of that and everything else, I can kind of get by.”
Ok, here’s where I don’t mention the live-in male “roommate” who I’m sure is available to tie shoes amongst other things. But that’s what live-in male “roommates” are for.
