Being an actor is one of the most disillusioning jobs ever. In other employment, hard work and determination can often ultimately prevail. But in the soul-crushing world of show-business, there are no promises that you’ll end up anywhere else but at the end of your bed, crying into a tub of Ben and Jerry’s after yet another emotionally strenuous audition where the director has told you to leave smack bang in the middle of your tearful soliloquy.
Ask Gal Gadot, she knows all about the pain of reading for role after role with no light at the end of the tunnel. Except for the fact that she’s now starring in a film which raked in an astounding $103.1 million on its opening weekend, a movie that is being described as a masterpiece of subversive feminism.
But the road from struggling actor to wildly successful feminist icon wasn’t easy, as Gal, who of course plays the role of Wonder Woman in the new Hollywood blockbuster film, revealed to Jimmy Fallon when she appeared on his show. In fact, Gadot was considering giving up acting, with absolutely no idea she was even auditioning for the main role in what would become one of the biggest films of the year.
