Gadot, who served in the IDF, has drawn ire from anti-Israel activists worldwide for her vocal support of Israel. Despite BDS campaigns to boycott “Wonder Woman” in Lebanon, Jordan, Tunisia and Algeria due to the “Zionist” actress’s leading role, Gadot’s Marvel comic superhero movie soared to success, earning approximately $103 million in North America during its first weekend in early June and receiving overwhelmingly positive reviews.

The movie is also the first female-directed action film to exceed $400 million in US earnings, and has grossed some $800 million worldwide.

In late June, Gadot was ranked number one on the Top Actors list of The Hollywood Reporter.

    How would I translate ‘Wonder Woman’? Aishes Chayil ! Every traditional Jewish wife and mother is a wonder woman!

    Money is not the standard by which things should be judged, and it’s not part of the Jewish definition of “success.”
