Jeremy Renner won’t soon forget a recent painful 10-plus hour flight from Los Angeles to London. It wasn’t the turbulence, the layovers or the bad service that made the flight unbearable – it was the uncomfortable, unnatural swelling going on … in his pants.

The ‘Avengers’ and ‘Bourne Legacy’ actor got a little personal with People recently (Too personal?), telling them he accidentally popped a Viagra a friend gave him before the flight. No, Renner wasn’t looking to up his Mile High Club status, he thought the pill was Ambien and was hoping to spend the entire flight dozing.

Instead, he spent the flight squirming and icing his junk and probably hoping for a flight attendant who was willing to go above and beyond the usual call of service.

He didn’t get a wink the entire tine, and he had to deal with the “camping” (his terms) going on below the belt. Luckily, the flight staff was prepared for such an event. They had plenty of ice to place on Hawkeye’s pointy hawkeye to keep the swelling down.

“If I had to go to the restroom, it was so embarrassing,” he said about the whole ordeal.

Yep, if we had to choose one word to describe this story, “embarrassing” would be it.
