Scarlett Johansson joked that she "has made it to the big time" as she unveiled her star on Hollywood's Walk Of Fame.

The 27-year-old, who wore a monochrome 50s-style print dress with red heels, was joined by her Avengers Assemble co-stars Jeremy Renner and Clark Gregg outside Madame Tussauds Hollywood.

"When I was told I was getting this star, I thought to myself, 'Man, I really made it to the big time'," she said in her speech.

"You know, no matter what happens from here on out, I made my mark, I'm here to stay, and my family for generations to come will always be able to visit me right here, always. What a deeply, deeply touching gift," she added.

Jeremy, who plays Hawkeye in Joss Whedon's superhero blockbuster, couldn't resist teasing Scarlett in his speech.

"Working with her was awful," he joked.

"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."

Former child actress Scarlett - who squeezes back into the Black Widow's catsuit in Avengers Assemble - picked up a Bafta award for her performance in Lost In Translation, and won acclaim for Girl With A Pearl Earring, The Horse Whisperer and Vicky Cristina Barcelona.

She has recently wrapped production on indie film Under The Skin, and will next portray Janet Leigh in Alfred Hitchcock And The Making Of Psycho, opposite Anthony Hopkins.
