FROM one wonder woman to the next, star of the Hollywood blockbuster Gal Gadot has revealed that she has Beyoncé to thank for her leading role, after turning to one of the songstress’s most famous hits to get her through the audition process.
“When I auditioned for Batman v Superman, I didn’t know it was for Wonder Woman,” Gadot told W Magazine. “The director, Zack Snyder, asked me to do a camera test. That was torture. They were looking at six or seven girls, and we were all in separate trailers and were told to stay inside until they called us. Waiting is my enemy number one, and I was losing my mind. So, I decided to put on Beyonce.”
The decision clearly paid off, with Gadot scoring the role in 2016’s Batman v Superman and thereafter the part in the subsequent Justice League films and the headline role in this summer’s standalone Wonder Woman. And her song of choice that kicked it all off back in that trailer?
“Who runs the world? Girls! I just started to dance, and I let my anxiety go. Thank you, Beyonce!”
