Speaking at a Karlovy Vary Film Festival press conference on Friday for Taylor Sheridan’s “Wind River,” Jeremy Renner said he “broke his arms” during a stunt on “Avengers: Infinity War,” which is filming. The star, who is due to star in the next “Bourne” movie, said he fractured his right elbow and his left wrist.

Renner claimed, with a wry smile, that the injury wouldn’t affect 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,” he said. “I’ll heal fast. I’m doing everything I can to heal faster.”

The actor, who has appeared in action films like “Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation,” said: “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.”
