Jeremy Renner has the kind of sense of humor that even 30 plus broken bones can’t remove.
The actor, who was struck and badly injured plowing snow earlier this month while helping a family member whose car got stuck in the snow, thanked fans on social media Saturday for their outpouring of love and support during his recovery.
After returning home from two weeks in the hospital, Renner shared his joy health update with his fans on Twitter, which “Avengers” co-star Chris Evans turned in with a perfectly timed joke to show love to his longtime friend.
Quote tweeting the post of the actor, Evans joked write, “That’s a tough one. Has anyone even checked the snowcat???,” referring to the giant PistenBully vehicle that the star pushed in the episode.
“Sending so much love,” the “Captain America” star added, alongside a red heart emoji.
Renner, who said he suffered more than 30 broken bones during the New Year’s Day accidentquipped back at Evans with an oh-so-perfect response.
“You love your brother …. I checked on the snow cat, she needs fuel,” he wrote, followed by a winking face and laughing emoji.
In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Evans stars as the unsuspecting leader of the Avengers, Captain America, and Renner as the bow-toting Hawkeye.
The two are two of the six original “Avengers” actors and have teamed up over the years to battle the forces of evil on the big screen, including fighting the unstoppable Thanos and Ultron remove wise.
The two longtime co-stars are no strangers to poking fun at each other. When Evans was crowned Sexiest Man Alive in November, “Thor” actor Chris Hemsworth spilled the beans on how the “Avengers” cast teased Evans about his cover photo pose.
Sharing what went down in a group chat with all of his cast mates during an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” Hemsworth said, “It was like, [Robert] Downey [Jr.] said he was being arrested, I said it was a beautiful mugshot, and Jeremy Renner said a bunch of things we won’t do again… dirty.”
On Saturday, Renner also opened up on Instagram about the many broken bones he suffered and expressed gratitude for the “love and connection with his family and friends.”
“Morning operations, these certain new years resolutions have changed…. Coming from a tragedy for my entire family, and quickly focused on uniting the actionable love,” he captioned the post alongside a photo of himself in bed, in which he appears to be receiving physical therapy.
Adding praying hands and heart emojis, he continued, “These 30 plus broken bones will mend, grow stronger, just as the love and connection with family and friends grows. Blessings and love to you all.”
The life-threatening accident, which required Renner to be airlifted to a hospital because of his injuries after being crushed, happened near his home in Reno, Nevada.
He suffered “blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries,” and underwent surgery the next day, Renner’s publicist revealed at the time.
The actor, who currently stars in “The Mayor of Kingstown,” tweeted last week that “out of my brain fog in recovery, I had a lot of fun watching episode 201 with my family at home,” referring to his crime drama series.
“The Mayor of Kingstown” is now streaming on Paramount + with new episodes appearing every Sunday.
