Renner, using a cane, appeared at the premiere of his upcoming Disney+ docuseries 'Rennervations' at Regency Village Theatre in Los Angeles.
On April 11, Jeremy Renner made his first official 'blue' carpet appearance after a horrific snowplow accident on New Year's Day. With the help of a cane, he graced the red carpet with his daughter, Ava Berlin Renner, at the premiere of his upcoming Disney+ docuseries "Rennervations" at the Regency Village Theatre in Los Angeles.
According to TODAY, the father-daughter pair wore matching navy blue ensembles when they arrived at the event hand in hand. According to Disney's official website, in the documentary, Renner, a construction aficionado, teams up with "expert builders" to reimagine decommissioned government vehicles as "unique purpose-built vehicles" to serve communities around the world.
Renner was featured in a Q&A with Jimmy Kimmel and received a standing ovation from the crowd. The actor talked about his accident when Kimmel asked about the snowplow that caused him the injuries. The "Mayor of Kingstown" actor said that the machine is a "necessity" on his property because there is “so much snow up there.”
However, Renner noted that his mom wants to light the snowplow on fire. “My mom wants to light it on fire and have a big ol’ party,” he said. He also shared the inspiration behind “Rennervations,” telling Kimmel that he started collecting large-scale vehicles for years with “a purpose for every single one of them.”
Renner posed for pictures with his family during the occasion with co-host Rory Millikin, showrunner Patrick Costello, executive producer Romilda de Luca and Roxy Molohon from the show crew. “From the personal challenges — physical, emotional, health, all of that — it’s come hand-in-hand with the show because the show is also very, very, very personal to me, it’s my life,” Renner told The Hollywood Reporter on the carpet. “There’s no character, there’s no script. This is just cameras investigating what I do for a living in my life. The show became a wonderful milestone for me to aim towards for my physical health, for me to be here to share the story, to share this journey, and it’s been quite an honor to do so.”
Renner also touched upon his future in acting, confirming that he plans to return to the screen. “Never leaving anything that I love to do, I’ll always be busy doing things I love to do,” he said. “I’ll be a little bit more focused on the things that have value and matter to me, and a lot of times people and fans really like that, and I’ve got to appreciate my amazing fans because they end up loving the things that I do, even with this as well.” After his catastrophic accident, Renner received overwhelming love and support from his global fans.
"I'm overflowing with gratitude and excitement, unlike anything I've felt in a very, very long time, you know?" Renner told PEOPLE while on the carpet. He pointed out that the event served as his "first time to kind of get out of my bed and out of rehab and, you know, to be on my feet and be out in the world. It's intense, you know, for me, it's a lot, but it's a step in the direction I want to be going, right? And this is exactly what I want to be doing and exactly where I want my life to be right now."
