We usually look forward to each new year, believing that it will bring positive changes and generally be better than the one that's ending. However, this is not always true. Bad things can happen when we least expect it. Even the New Year itself can turn out to be tragic.

On January 1, 2023, Jeremy Renner, who you may know as Hawkeye and for starring in several high-profile action movies, had the misfortune to be involved in a traumatic accident. The actor was run over by a 14330-pound snowplow at his home in Nevada while helping his nephew dig out the truck that was buried under the snow.

Severely injured, Renner was rushed to the hospital by helicopter and spent several days in intensive care. He was released home after nearly three weeks in the hospital, and has recently spoken about his greatest fear after the accident.

In the April 6 episode of Good Morning, America on ABC, Diane Sawyer gives us the first look at her interview with Jeremy Renner, which came out earlier that day.

As we see the actor slowly approach Diane with the help of a walker, he reveals that it's only his second day of walking since the accident. The pain Renner suffered is still crystal clear in his memory, he claims.

'I started moving my legs and I said, "That leg is really messed up. That leg's gonna be a problem." I'm thinking, like, "What's my body look like? Am I going to be just a spine and a brain, like a science experiment? Is that my existence now?"' Jeremy shares his worst concerns that day.

Although he admits to having morbid thoughts about his condition right after suffering numerous injuries in this accident, Jeremy Renner says he doesn't want to be seen as a victim. He is doing everything he can physically to move on from that horrific moment, lest it haunt him for the rest of his life.

The iron-willed actor is truly a superhero, determined to overcome whatever obstacles life throws at him.

The interview also features Renner's family and neighbors, who came to his aid during the tragedy and now share their memories of the tragic event. If you missed it on ABC, it will be available on Hulu starting April 7.
