Jeremy Renner Broke Both His Arms Doing Stunts On His New Movie “Tags”
And who says acting isn’t dangerous? Movie star Jeremy Renner apparently fractured both his arms, his right elbow and left wrist, while filming a stunt for his new movie “Tags.” Renner revealed the specifics of his injury during a Friday press conference at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival in the Czech Republic. “That’s how it goes,” Renner said, according to Variety. “It’s part of the job.” But Renner, an incredibly busy man, as most movie stars are wont to be, said it’s not really going to affect his schedule. “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,” he said. “I’ll heal fast. I’m doing everything I can to heal faster.” He added, “I’m doing a job 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.”
The news is official now with two posts on Instagram from June that picture him in casts.

No, this was NOT a proposal ?#fixedup #ouch
Of course, the big drama over this stunt accident was erroneous assumptions of the reporting media that Renner was injured on the new Avengers: Infinity War movie which he has yet to set foot on. “I got a lot of phone calls about that” Renner told The Wrap with a weary sigh. Even though the initial story was quickly corrected, the damage was done. If you search Jeremy Renner on Twitter, you will find countless articles locating the accident on the Avenger’s movie set. “It’s frustrating.” said Renner in a conversation that dealt less with one accident and more with the perils of being a public figure in this age of Twitter’s version of the old broken-telephone game. “These thing that get misconstrued in the media. It’s really the most awful, strange things. These things that can be damaging to an artist or a career. If you’re a respected actor, all of a sudden this is being said, and you’re like, “What?” And that becomes the biggest news. Really, that’s news?” Besides the new “Avengers flick, Renner has a lot of projects in the works, including a cartoon called “Artic Justice” along with his apparently very dangerous movie “Tag”. Most importantly, Renner is also going to be in a “Bourne” sequel.
Not Uncommon For An Action Star To Do Their Own Stunts And Get Hurt But What A Trooper!
Susan Z’s Conclusion:
Jeremy Renner appears to be very matter of fact about his injuries and obviously is well informed as to what extent the seriousness of them are. He says he will be fine and you just believe him.
Seven of Cups: Inverted (Upside Down)
This is a card of many choices laid before you. Since pulled inverted, I believe that Renner picks and chooses what stunts he can do and which ones he is not capable of. I do not feel this was an overblown case of “I got this!” machoism but as he stated, it comes with the territory of being an action star.
Three of Wands:
This is a card of good results in business, travel, growth and expansion. Since all three are related to Renner’s chosen career at the moment, he does what he has to and actually enjoys the physical part of his roles.
Six of Cups:
This is a card of forgiveness and letting go of the past. I feel that Renner has moments here and there of, “shit, what was I thinking!” while going through the discomfort of not being able to tie his shoes but just rolls with it. Lol!
