Maids in India have egos. Big egos. They do not like being spoken to curtly, and they do not like to be abruptly instructed by a woman they do not know.

What's great about 'The Avengers' is that it's the next step. It's not just superhero fights super-villain and superhero wins. It's about superheroes that come together and interact.

The great thing with film is that it doesn't have an ego. It's just a film.

Fragile egos are put on the line every day.
Mary Lou Retton
