On “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Monday, Renner said Rudd visited him in the hospital a couple of times, and was always “making my day” because “he’s one of the funniest guys around.”
Case in point: Renner shared a video that Rudd sent him. It was made to resemble a message from the Cameo app, which allows people to purchase personalized video messages from celebrities.
“He made a fake one like I paid him money for a Cameo,” Renner recalled.
“Hey Jerry,” Rudd begins the clip. “I hear you’re a little banged up. Got in a fight with a snowblower apparently? Anyway, I just wanted to send this video. It’s really from the heart and hope you’re feeling better. Sounds like you are ― apparently you’re a pretty tough guy. Maybe I’ll get to meet you someday.”
Renner was severely injured on Jan. 1 while plowing snow near his property in Reno, Nevada. He was run over by the tracked machine, which weighs more than 14,000 pounds. He broke more than 30 bones and punctured a lung.
