Superstar Jeremy Renner gave fans an update Monday in a message about how much he was missing his home after being hospitalized on New Year’s Day with major injuries from a snowplow accident.
In a post on his Instagram Story, the 52-year-old actor shared a photo of his place outside of Reno, Nevada almost completely covered in snow with the banks and tress covered in a blanket of white as well following recent winter storms in the western part of the state, People magazine reported.
He captioned it simply, “Missing my happy place.”
The Marvel star continued his recovery Monday at the hospital after being airlifted to one near his home on January 1 when a snowplow he was operating ran over him. He suffered “blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries,” in the freak accident, a statement from his publicist Samantha Mast shared at the time. He also underwent multiple surgeries.

Mast later told CNN the superstar was making progress but remained in the Intensive Care Unit.
“Jeremy is making positive progress and is awake, talking and in good spirits,” the actor’s rep shared. “He remains in ICU in critical but stable condition. He is overwhelmed by the showing of love and support. The family asks for your continued thoughts while he heals with his close loved ones.”
Later, reports surfaced that the “Hawkeye” star was helping a stranded motorist get out of the snow when the Kässbohrer PistenBully snowplow he was operating ran over his leg, the New York Post noted.
“He was helping someone stranded in the snow,” Reno City Mayor Hillary Schieve told the Reno-Gazette Journal. “He is always helping others.”
“Thank you all for your kind words,” Renner shared. “I’m too messed up now to type. But I send love to you all.” His post included a praying hand emoji and showed scars on one side of his face.
