Paul Rudd did what he does best and put a smile on fellow Avenger Jeremy Renner's face following the actor's nearly fatal accident with a snowplow.

Renner, 52, was rushed to the hospital on New Year's Day after stopping the seven-ton piece of machinery from hitting his nephew while they were clearing snow around the actor's Nevada home, per a sheriff's report.

Fans were left concerned for the Marvel star as he was reported to be in a "critical but stable" condition following the accident on New Year's Day, with the actor later revealing that he had broken more than 30 bones in his body.

Renner recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live where he spoke about the accident and his time in the hospital - including how one specific person kept visiting him.

Rudd is an Avenger alongside Renner, and it seems like the pair are a strong team even off the screen as the 52-year-old explained how the Ant-Man actor would come to his bedside and cheer him up by being his classic hilarious self.

To put a further smile on his friend's face, Rudd took to the popular video platform Cameo, where people can pay their favorite celebrities for a personal video message.

The Hawkeye actor shared the hilarious video with the audience, with Rudd acting as though his friend were a fan of his.

"Hey Jerry," Rudd began. "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 [I] hope you’re feeling better. Sounds like you are ― apparently you’re a pretty tough guy. Maybe I’ll get to meet you someday."

Rudd continued: "In the meantime, take care, take it easy for a while," before offering the advice: "Maybe next time just let the snow melt. Feel better, Jerry."

It's safe to say that Renner saw the funny side of it, and it was presumably a much-needed bit of laughter in the midst of a traumatic event.

Speaking to Radar Online, a source close to Renner told the outlet that his injuries are "much worse than anyone knows" and that the actor is "very aware of the fact that he almost died out there."

"The right side of Jeremy’s chest was crushed, and his upper torso had collapsed. He also had a bad head wound that was bleeding and a leg injury," they continued. "He knew he was in bad shape and that he might not make it out of this."

TMZ reported that Renner continues to make a miraculous recovery as he was spotted taking his family to Six Flags on Good Friday (April 7), where he navigated the park with a mobility scooter.

When heading into the studio where Jimmy Kimmel Live is filmed, the 52-year-old was spotted walking with the aid of a cane - a clear indication that he is on the mend.
