Just as he did in The Avengers, Jeremy Renner had Scarlett Johansson's back today. And he used that position to tickle her ribs!

"Working with her was tremendous...ly awful," Renner cracked as Johansson received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for her accomplishments in film. "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," he concluded, "I get to step on you, sweetheart."

Black Widow kept the wisecracks to a minimum, meanwhile, instead thanking Renner for being her "knight in shining armor."

Also present were Johansson's mom and grandmother, whom the New York-bred actress thanked for "inspiring me to be a strong, modern, independent woman."

"There's not a day that goes by that I don't feel like the luckiest person in the world to have the job that I love," she added.

And that was before Jeremy Renner was saying adorable things about her in public!

But the pair probably won't have much time to hang out for any non-Avengers-related business. Johansson told E! News after the ceremony that, "with the exception of a nice three-day weekend," she's going to be working all summer.
