Well, we suppose there are worse ways to spend an 11-hour flight.

Jeremy Renner definitely needs a vacation. The "Hurt Locker" star has had a whirlwind year, traveling all to and fro promoting and/or filming the likes of "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" and "The Avengers." And now, with "The Bourne Legacy" about to hit theaters, he's definitely hard-up for a nap.

Heh heh ... "hard-up." You're going to find that choice of term hilarious in just a minute. Allow us to elaborate...

Renner was recently on a flight from L.A. to London, a miserable jaunt that takes the better part of a day. The "Bourne" star admittedly doesn't sleep very well on planes, but as he had to jump right into work as soon as he landed, he decided to take a little something that would help to knock him out.

"So I take a little sleeping pill, pop it and realize nothing's happening — but something else was happening," he said. Renner soon realized that it wasn't Ambien he had taken but Viagra.

Renner certainly didn't sleep on that flight — though he managed to make friends with the flight crew. "They were sort of in on the joke — 'Can I get you anything, Mr. Renner?' Yes, ice!" he joked.

The medication is definitely long-lasting — and makes an impression, no matter how much you try to hide it. "There was no walking," Renner said. "If I had to go to the restroom, it was so embarrassing."

You can watch Jeremy Renner tell the story himself in the clip from "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" below, courtesy of People. This yarn will most certainly enhance our upcoming "Bourne Legacy" viewing experience.
