"He was in a wheelchair,"

She continued;

"He has recovered like a mo-fo. I walked in his house and got chicken skin, 'cause I was like, 'Why are you mobile? Why are you mobile? What's happening?'" "I expected to sit at his bedside and hold his hand while he moaned and groaned in pain and wasn't able to move. He was wheeling himself around, laughing with his friends. It's a miracle, a straight-up miracle."

Evangeline Gushes About The First Time She Met Renner

Evangeline reflected on her first encounter with Renner, which occurred while they were filming the 2008 war drama The Hurt Locker, which went on to win Best Picture and five other Academy Awards.

She recalled being so impressed by him when they filmed the movie because he was so young and energetic.

The Hurt Locker star added;

"What's so ironic is at that point I was like the 'celebrity cameo' on some level because I was on Lost, and I was like, 'Who's this kid?'"

How The Accident Happened

According to a police report from Nevada, which was obtained by CNN, Renner was attempting to stop a sliding snowplow from running over his nephew, whose truck was stuck in the snow and the actor was trying to help get it out. The Hawkeye star, unfortunately, went under the sliding heavy machine and got crushed. However, the actor has found a way to keep his fans updated on his recovery.

On Sunday, Renner posted a picture of the resistance bands and equipment he would be using for his physical therapy session that day on Instagram.

Sharing Movie Updates Despite Being In Recovery

Despite being unable to work, he has returned to social media to share information about his therapy and medical procedures. He has also advertised his upcoming Disney+ four-part miniseries Rennervations and the Paramount+ drama Mayor Of Kingstown, which is currently airing its second season.
