Jeremy Renner Is Adorable Talking About That Time He Accidentally Took Viagra On A Plane

I feel like Jeremy Renner was sort of the Joe Manganiello of The Avengers: Compared to his co-stars, he didn’t say much on-screen, but he looked pretty and carried a big… bow. Then suddenly he’s doing the talk show circuit and we’re actually taking notice, only to discover how unexpectedly funny he is. And interestingly, both men have great, quotable stories concerning their dicks.

Joe had us howling when he proposed that his penis pump scene from Magic Mike be included in his “In Memoriam” montage at the Oscars. And now Jeremy just told a giggle-worthy anecdote on last night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, about how a Barney Stinson-esque friend gave him some Viagra instead of Ambien on a transatlantic flight. If you thought Kristen Wiig‘s boozy plane adventures in Bridesmaids were bad, wait til you hear this.

“So somebody gave me some pills like the Ambien—great, take a little sleeping pill, pop it,” he explains to Kimmel. “And I realize nothing’s happening, but something else is happening, and I realize very quickly that that ‘A’ was actually a little ‘V’ on the pill. Because not only did I not sleep the entire flight, there was camping happening.”

Apparently the flight attendants were in on the joke and kept teasing him, asking, “Can we get you anything, Mr. Renner?” Those ladies sound doubly awesome, a) because they could poke fun at a celebrity without being afraid of getting fired, and b) they didn’t actually get him anything, even after he begged for some ice.

But the best part — and by that I mean we feel like horrible people for laughing — was when Jeremy realized how incriminating he looked sitting next to a little girl: “Most of [the other passengers] were sleeping. Coolly enough, I had Dennis Hopper, God rest his soul, laying next to me, but his daughter was there playing with all these glass menageries on the ledge. And then halfway through the flight I’m playing with her and I’m like, ‘Hold on a second man—I’m going to go to jail, I’m going to get arrested. This does not look good.’”

I knew that that woman who wrote the raunchy Avengers review where she propositions Jeremy Renner was on to something! Excuse me while I go look up more videos of this funny man.

    I’m pleasantly surprised to see his funny side! And I agree with that girl’s hysterical review of the Avengers. Love Jeremy Renner….I can sadly say I have ever since his dirty-baggy role in The Town.
