Gal Gadot isn’t the only superhero fighting the good fight against Hollywood’s alleged abusers — she has a whole league of allies behind her!
The Justice League actress stopped by Today on Wednesday and addressed the rumors she had refused to play Wonder Woman again if Brett Ratner was involved with the sequel.
Over the weekend, Page Six reported that the Israeli actress gave Warner Bros. an ultimatum to cut ties with the producer-director, who has recently been accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women, including Olivia Munn.
Needless to say, the 32-year-old received a ton of praise after the report circulated on Twitter. But according to Gadot, she wasn’t the only one who wanted Ratner out of the picture!
When asked about her alleged power play on Today, Gadot told Savannah Guthrie:
“At the end of the day, a lot has been written about my views and the way that I feel, and everyone knows the way that I feel because I’m not hiding anything. But the truth is, there’s so many people making this movie ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ it’s not just me ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ and they all echoed the same sentiments.”
It’s just like those Justice League posters say — you can’t save the world alone!
“Everyone knew what the right thing to do. But there was nothing for me to actually come and say because [the movie] was already done before this article came out.”
Hmm├óΓé¼┬ª sounds like Diana is getting sly with her responses. Clearly, she’s talking about Justice League since Wonder Woman 2 won’t start filming until June 2018.
So, does that mean she really did give WB an ultimatum? According to studio reps, not at all!
A spokesperson for WB told Business Insider that the Page Six story was “false.” In actuality, the deal between the studio and Ratner’s RatPace-Dune Entertainment will have expired by the time Wonder Woman 2 is made.
So, if the actress did make this power move, she didn’t actually have to!
Still, Gadot has definitely made her opinions on the disgraced producer clear. Before the recent allegations came to light, Gadot backed out of a dinner honoring Ratner where she was set to present an award to him.
Sounds like she was a leading force in giving Ratner the boot — even if she doesn’t fully admit it. Ch-ch-check out the clip of her interview (below) to see what we mean.
