Heidi Moneymaker said both she and Renae are “both really grateful” for the opportunities they’ve received. “We didn’t come from a family who had a ton of money. We just came from a very hard working, very dedicated family, and I think we very much appreciate where we are,” she said. “We very much appreciate that we wouldn’t be here without how hard our parents worked to help us get through gymnastics and get here in the first place. Yeah, we do it all the time, especially now. When she first got into the business, I thought, ‘This is great because we can train together, and we can work together, and this will be really fun.’ But really early on, she’s so talented that she got swept away and was doing big shows, and I was doing big shows and films. It was a little sad because here we are in this business together and barely get to see each other.”
Things recently changed for the Moneymaker sisters, though, when both were hired to work on the upcoming Disney+ MCU series “Hawkeye,” starring Jeremy Renner. Heidi is show’s stunt coordinator, while Renae was brought aboard to do stunt work. “Especially after this last show, we realized, ‘You know what? Now we can work together and we’re going to make that happen,'” Heidi enthused. “She’s amazing. She wants to be a producer at some point. I want to direct. So, we’re right now working towards the next phases of life and bringing up people along with us to fill our spots and all that good stuff.”
“Black Widow” is playing in theaters and streaming on Disney+ with Premier Access. Heidi is also featured on the new documentary “E60 Presents Moneymaker: Behind Black Widow,” which is streaming exclusively on ESPN+.
