    May I get some help?

    Hello Everybody!

    Can I get some help with this?
    Robert Downey Jr. gave an interview and he was talking about the Avegers' director, that he was the best director for this movie. Then he said:

    "I could be walking this press line with a turkey, it wouldn't be a first time, but in this case people really like it, so I'm happy."

    I just don't get the "I could be walking this press line with a turkey" part. Can anybody explain to me what that means?

    Thanx in advance!

    It means that he is happy that The Avengers film is a good film which people like. In the past, he has had to press interviews about films which aren't very good and which the public don't like. Even so, the actors are always expected to carry on with their normal press interviews, being positive about the film.

    So "walking the press line" means "undertaking an actor's obligations to do interviews with the press/media" and a "turkey" (in this context) is a film which has not been successful.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    We try to use correct English forms in this forum. Please use 'thanks' rather than 'thanx'.
