I had to exhale with all my might so I could suck air back in, recalled Renner, 53. I didn’t know I had a popped lung and all this other stuff going on. But I just had to breathe. If I didn’t breathe, then I would have been gone.

The actor also mentioned that he had broken 38 bones in the New Year’s Day accident. When host Jimmy Fallon asked him how much of his body was “titanium right now,” Renner said that quite a few parts were.

This is metal, he said, touching his left shin. Half my face is metal. All the right side of my back is metal.

The Avengers star explained that he had been clearing snow and towing a truck with the snowplow accident before it “got out of my hands.” The machine then started moving toward his nephew, so Renner tried to jump back on it to stop it. This attempt led to the severe injuries he sustained.

Renner explained to Fallon, 49, that he was still conscious during the snowplow accident and described what was going through his mind immediately afterward.

It’s like, you see your eye with your other eye because my eyeball was out. So you have weird thoughts like, ‘Well, I guess that’s real, but I’ll worry about that later,’ he said.

The Hurt Locker actor added, I looked at my legs, and they were all twisted up. But I thought, ‘I’ll worry about that later because I have to focus on breathing first.

Renner shared with Fallon that this lesson stood out as one of the most crucial takeaways from his ordeal.

It’s a powerful reminder of what really matters in life,” he reflected. “When faced with overwhelming stress or challenges, it’s about taking it one step at a time. Just put one foot in front of the other and keep moving forward.
