The Hollywood star Jeremy Renner was nearly killed earlier this year when he was involved in a devastating snowplow accident on New Year’s Day. As he celebrated Mother’s Day yesterday, Renner issued an apology to his own mother for nearly losing his life.

Renner Apologizes To Mother

Renner, 52, took to Instagram to post a touching tribute to his mother Valerie.

“Earth, Mother Nature, and Mama,” he wrote alongside a photo of himself with his mom. “No matter how challenging, painful, or difficult life can be for me as of recent, it does not elude you.”

“I’m sorry for the weight I’ve made you carry, yet so very grateful that you can with grace and strength. Thank you, love you mama…. My rock,” he added. “#happymothersday.”

Renner’s Mother Helps Him Recover

Fox News reported that this came after Renner recently revealed that his mother sat next to his hospital bed and read to him in the days after his accident.

“So she’s reading Stephen King — some, like, horror thing,” he said with a laugh. “But she just wants to read like she’s reading Dr. Seuss to me, like, ‘How now, brown cow?’”

“It just happened to be what I was reading at the time, but I just wanted him to hear my voice,” his mother explained.

Renner has also credited his mother with helping him to survive his horrific accident.

“I know I’m mentally strong, and I get that from my mom,” he said.

Renner was using a snowcat to try and help his nephew Alexander Fries get his vehicle out of a snowbank near his home in Lake Tahoe on New Year’s Day when things took a horrifying turn, and the actor ended up being crushed by the seven-ton snowplow. Renner said afterwards that he was “awake through all of it,” adding that he has no regrets about getting crushed by the snowcat because his nephew had been about to get hit by it.

“I would do it again,” Renner told interviewer Diane Sawyer, who was visibly shocked by this. “It was coming right at my nephew. I would do it again.”

“I chose to survive, this is not going to kill me,” he added. “You’re not going to kill me. No way.”

Renner’s Long Recovery Battle 

Friends of Renner have previously said that it may take him years to fully recover from this.

“It’s much worse than anyone knows. Jeremy is very aware of the fact that he almost died out there,” a friend of his told RadarOnline back in January. “The right side of Jeremy’s chest was crushed, and his upper torso had collapsed. He also had a bad head wound that was bleeding and a leg injury.”

“Jeremy was in a lot of pain, and was having difficulty breathing,” the insider continued. “He knew he was in bad shape and that he might not make it out of this.”

Renner is clearly in the midst of a long recover battle, so we’re glad to see that he has his mother by his side to help him through it. Please join us in saying a prayer for Renner as he continues to try to bounce back from this!
