“Wonder Woman” star Gal Gadot covers the June 2017 issue of Marie Claire magazine photographed by Tesh.
On being a confident woman: “My mom raised my sister and me to be confident women with aspirations. And I always felt capable. I’m not saying that I’m stronger than most men…but we all have the same brains and we can achieve the same things.”
On life in Los Angeles vs. Israel: “When I first came to Los Angeles, I couldn’t read people. In Israel, people have chutzpah. People take issue with it, but I’d rather have that than play games. I prefer to know the truth, not waste time.”
On dealing with adversity: “I don’t enjoy conflict in my life. Unlike Wonder Woman, I’m not a fighter [but] I will fight for good.”
On her hope for equal rights for women: “There’s a long way to go until we can make gender a nonissue. I don’t know if it’ll ever happen. I’m hoping it will because life would be so much cooler and less complicated then. Also, for men, by the way.”
