During an interview at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival, actor Jeremy Renner revealed he fractured his right elbow and left wrist while filming a stunt for Avengers: Infinity War.
“That’s how it goes,” Renner told Variety. “It’s part of the job.”
Renner remained upbeat about the injury, claiming it wouldn’t hinder him from doing his job. “I’m sort of a problem solver, you know. There will be an affect to it, but it won’t stop me from doing things that I need to be doing,” the actor said. “I’ll heal fast. I’m doing everything I can to heal faster.
“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,” Renner added. “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.”
