Renner - who plays Hawkeye in the motion picture - joked about having a horrible work experience with her.

"Working with her was tremendous... ly awful," he quipped. "For six months, she continuously threw me around, beat me, stepped on me and wiped the floor with my dignity and self-respect every day - all with a smile on her face.

"Now, finally, I get to step on you, sweetheart."
