She’s best known for heading into battle in a skimpy set of armor in the blockbuster Wonder Woman films.
But Gal Gadot went all in on glamour on Tuesday evening when she hit the red carpet at ELLE’s 2021 Women in Hollywood Celebration at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures in a stunning pink dress
The 36-year-old Israeli actress was among the nine women being honored at the event, including Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Halle Berry and Rita Moreno.
Gal showed off her trim figure in the slim dress, which featured a high slit to highlight her toned legs.
The sleeveless look had a thick ruched halter collar, and she contrasted the colorful look with a lustrous black plastic flower nestled against her neck.
The 5ft10in beauty elevated her stature with a set of black open-toe heels with several crisscrossing straps, and she had her brunette tresses styled in a chic shoulder-length cut with her hair swept behind one ear.
She added some more sparkle to her look with a stunning Knot Double Row Hinged Bangle from Tiffany & Co. that featured 18K gold.
Joining the Justice League star on the red carpet was her husband Yaron ‘Jaron’ Varsano, who looked dapper in a black suit and a matching shirt sans tie.
Gal and the real estate developer — who later ventured into producing with her — have been married since 2008 and share three daughters: Alma, nine; Maya, four; and baby Daniella, whom the actress gave birth to in June.
In announcing the action star as one of its honorees for the evening, ELLE focused out reports that she had stood up to ‘on-set mistreatment’ from Justice League replacement director Joss Whedon.
The publication cited a Hollywood Reporter article detailing how Gal stood up to Whedon after he was allegedly verbally abusive after she came to him with concerns over some of Wonder Woman’s dialogue in Justice League.
The actress stood up for herself over some of Whedon’s dialogue she thought was too aggressive to match with the character who had been seen in the first Wonder Woman film, and he reportedly threatened that ‘he can make her look incredibly stupid in this movie,’ a source claimed.
Although she told ELLE she was scared after the confrontation, Gadot held her ground, and she and Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins even met with then–Warner Bros. chairman Kevin Tsujihara to sort the issue out.
‘Oh, I was shaking trees as soon as it happened. And I must say that the heads of Warner Brothers, they took care of it….’ Gal said. ;
Going back to the sense of righteousness that I have…you’re dizzy because you can’t believe this was just said to you,’ she continued. ‘And if he says it to me, then obviously he says it to many other people. I just did what I felt like I had to do. And it was to tell people that it’s not okay.’
Next up, the A-lister will star with Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Ryan Reynolds in the action comedy Red Notice, which will be distributed by Netflix in November.
She’s also gearing up to star as the Egyptian queen Cleopatra in an upcoming film that will reunite her with Jenkins.
The pair will be returning at least one more time for a third Wonder Woman film.
