Gal Gadot: ‘I want to be a role model for young women’
    2016-October-19  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

    The star of Wonder Woman, actress Gal Gadot, says she hopes to be a role model to a younger generation of girls — but says she wants to achieve it “not so much for myself, but for the sake of my daughter.”

    The Israeli-born actress, who is a mother to a 4-year-old girl, made her on-screen debut as Wonder Woman in “Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice” earlier this year.

    The part “has given me a chance to think about what kind of role models my daughter, and all of this coming generation of girls — and boys — will be exposed to. Wonder Woman is iconic, and she does bring responsibility,” she says.

    Gadot is expected to be part of the celebrations on October 21 when Wonder Woman is named an honorary U.N. Ambassador for Women and Girls, exactly 75 years after the female superhero was first published by DC Comics.

    Since her part in “The Fast and the Furious” franchise, the former model and Miss Israel beauty queen has risen to prominence in Hollywood, and is currently starring in spy comedy “Keeping Up With the Joneses.” She will launch her first solo film outing as Wonder Woman in the summer of 2017.

    Gadot says “Wonder Woman,” made by Patty Jenkins, the director of 2003’s Oscar winner “Monster,” is a statement that “finally, we are in an interesting era when women can be whoever we really are.”

    “We truly are as strong as men — perhaps not physically, but in other ways we are as strong and that’s now okay. We can be ourselves.

    “Wonder Woman’s strength is not masculinized in any way.”

    In reality Gadot says she deplores the idea of competition between the sexes, and insists that shouldn’t be the purpose of an on-screen female superhero either.

    “It’s not about women versus men any longer, and who is better or stronger than who. There’s enough room for all of us — and boys and girls, women and men should remember that.

    “Wonder Woman has a very simple agenda — she believes in good and that people should be happy.”
