The interview caught the Marvel star’s attention, and the two actors exchanged friendly words on Twitter.
“I’m not a big fan of social media in general, but I find I spend most of my time on Instagram,” Midthunder shared. “But I’ve recently joined Twitter. I love meme sites. And frankly, I love Mark Ruffalo’s Instagram. He is amazing. He’s cool because he makes funny videos. but on the other hand it is also a good source of information. Also, if you are a fan of Mark Ruffalo and see photos of him and his family, that’s really cute. I think he’s doing a great job.”
“Thanks for the kind words @ambermidthunder! I liked what you said about the indigenous people not feeling the need to be small to ask permission or be ‘allowed’ to find their rightful place. They embody the zeitgeist. I’ll meet you out there,” Ruffalo wrote on Twitter. “Unreal. Thanks @MarkRuffalo,” Midthunder replied. You can check out the interaction below:
