Gal Gadot Online

Unofficially, 2017 is the year of Wonder Woman.

The superhero film starring Gal Gadot and directed by Patty Jenkins stormed the box office this summer, taking the No. 1 spot during its opening weekend back in June, and going on to become the highest grossing live-action film directed by a woman. Wonder Woman 2 is already set for a December 2019 release.

“I still need time to process everything because it’s been so incredibly, unbelievably amazing,” Gadot, 32, tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue.

The Israeli actress kicks off PEOPLE’s 25 Women Changing the World joined by five real-life wonder women: ER nurse Kelly Lynch, Marine pilot Major Khadijah M. Nashagh, Southern California firefighter Lovie Jung, ER pediatrician Dr. Liza Kearl and Air Force Capt. Staci Rouse.

“They are the true heroes,” says Gadot, who accompanies fellow stars Pink, Uzo Aduba, Jessica Chastain and America Ferrera, as well as epidemiologist Dr. Celine Gounder, Whole Child International founder Karen Spencer and primatologist and anthropologist Jane Goodall, on this year’s list.

As a former Israeli solider (the country requires all citizens to enlist when they turn 18), Gadot has a first-hand appreciation for the women serving today. “There is something very important and unique about the fact that you’re putting your life on hold and you’re giving back to your country,” she admits. “There is something beautiful about that selflessness.”

The former Miss Israel continues, “My service was for two years, but in an ideal world I would love for all the countries to not have an army so we don’t have to fight each other. But that’s not the case — we’re still not in an ideal world. There is still a long way to go.”

While Wonder Woman‘s success took a big step in the right direction towards empowering women, Gadot wants the movie to positively influence men’s schools of thought.

“It’s amazing that girls are exposed to the visual of strong women that are fighting so beautifully and having this amazing sisterhood relationship and caring to each other, but yet they can hold a sword and ride a horse,” the mom of two says. “But you can’t only empower the women. You ‘ve got to educate the men too. This movie is for everyone. It’s for boys to go to the movies and see that women can be amazing and badass and strong and inspiring, and not only me.”

Gadot, a mom of two, also has a message for people of any gender.

“It would be awesome if people weren’t [in a] hurry to judge each other and would be able to put themselves in the other people’s shoes,” she says. “People have their very solid opinions very quickly, and sometimes it’s based on something that is inaccurate.”

Gal shared that she will be featured on the cover of the December issue of Elle magazine.

Glamour UK is featuring Gal on the December issue of their magazine. Here is a overview of the interview.

She’s our new girl crush…

Gal Gadot is your brand new GLAMOUR cover star, and in the December issue, the Wonder Woman actress shockingly admits that she nearly quit acting.

She told GLAMOUR: “Before I got Wonder Woman, I was thinking about never coming back to Los Angeles, [I thought I’d] stay in Israel, work as an actress here and there, go back to university and do something else. Because there had been so many ‘no’s. You go to the audition and you have a callback, then another callback and then a camera set-up, and people are telling you your life will change if you get this part. And then you don’t get it. I reached a place where I didn’t want to do that anymore. My husband has a lot of work in Tel Aviv, and we had a daughter, so taking them to LA to fish for work put a lot of pressure on me. I was like, ‘Why am I doing this?’ Hearing no, over and over, I was thinking, ‘What am I good for?’ And that’s when I got Wonder Woman.”

If that’s not proof that ‘everything happens for a reason’, we don’t know what is!

The 32-year-old, who shares two children with husband Yaron Versano, also revealed to GLAMOUR that she felt relief when her law career didn’t pan out the way she had intended it to.

“You convince yourself to do these things… ‘I’ll be a lawyer so I can make peace and people will be able to reach agreements.’Whereas, in real life, lawyers deal with conflict non-stop. Conflicts are not good for me. I’m all about harmony and Zen. So I’m happy it didn’t work out. I would be the sh*ttiest lawyer.”

Yesterday Gal and her Justice League co-stars were in London for a photo call to promote their new film. I love the pics of them taking selfies together … LOVE this cast!

Justice League will finally unite the heroes of the DC Extended Universe and for many Wonder Woman is undoubtedly the MVP of the team, especially after the Amazonian warrior’s record-breaking standalone film became the most acclaimed entry in the franchise. In a recent interview, Gal Gadot discussed how Wonder Woman will play an important role in the group and why she enjoys being a part of the team.

Having previously described Wonder Woman as the glue of the team, Gadot elaborated on how the DC heroine’s empathy will extend to her new teammates and will be key to brining out the best in her new friends:

“When I got the script I made a point out of the importance of Diana being this glue to the team. That she would make each and everyone of them, even if it’s in small moments, feel stronger and loved and capable.”

Gadot also commented on why Wonder Woman will enjoy being a part of the team and feels a special kinship with this particular group of individuals:

“I think she enjoys working with a team. I think that after having the team on Wonder Woman, and working with them, and enjoying other people’s company, I think that she really feels good about fighting with them and also being among people who are similar to her because they’re all outsiders. Flash, and Cyborg, and Aquaman, and Bruce…they’re all outsiders. They’re all abnormal, and they’re loners, and they have these special gifts. And finally, after so long of being by herself, she has teammates. Which is wonderful.”

The inherent goodness – for lack of a better term – and desire to make the world a better place was one of the many qualities that made Wonder Woman the most beloved character in the DCEU to many. Personally, after the dreary and cynical tone of previous DCEU entries, it is reassuring to hear that Diana will retain the positive traits Gadot and Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins instilled in the character.

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Amber Heard, Jeremy Irons, J.K. Simmons, Willem Dafoe, Connie Nielsen, Julian Lewis Jones and Ciarán Hinds.

Justice League will be released in theaters on November 17, 2017.


Gal shares with how she feels Wonder Woman would respond to Sexual Harassment … an important topic finally being addressed in Hollywood.

Sexual harassment is a big topic in Hollywood at the moment, but what does Wonder Woman feel about the subject? was on hand at the Justice League junket in London when Gal Gadot was asked how Wonder Woman would respond to sexual harassment. “I don’t think Wonder Woman will ever let anyone use his power against her will,” Gadot said. “Her will is very strong and so is she.”

Yeah, we don’t see Wonder Woman pulling any punches if confronted with that kind of behavior. They better have good insurance plans because they are likely going through a wall if stupid enough to pull something like that on the Amazon warrior.

As for Gadot herself, she recently shared some words of encouragement to the women who have come out against men like Harvey Weinstein.

“Bullying and Sexual Harassment is unacceptable! I stand by all the courageous women confronting their fears and speaking out,” Gadot said. “Together we stand. We are all united in this time of change.”

Since then more and more claims have been made, and Hollywood seems to be scrambling to adjust.

While Wonder Woman didn’t address sexual harassment, it did take on misogyny and the idea of feminism, presenting a take on it that doesn’t revolve around men vs women.

“Wonder Woman is a feminist, of course,” Gadot said. “I think people have a misconception about what feminism is. People think hairy armpits and women who burn bras and hate men. That’s not it. For me, feminism is all about equality and freedom and [women] choosing what we want to do. If it’s salaries, then we get paid equal to men. It’s not men vs. women or women vs. men.”

The film used Wonder Woman’s obliviousness to its advantage, taking on things that just should or shouldn’t be without preaching.

“It was important to me that my character would never come and preach about how men should treat women. Or how women should perceive themselves. It was more about playing oblivious to society’s rules. ‘What do you mean women can’t go into the Parliament? Why?’” Gadot said. “It’s just reminding everyone how things should be.”

Gadot will next be seen in Justice League, which hits theaters on November 17.
