Gal Gadot graces the cover of the latest issue of Rolling Stone, and during her interview with the publication, she didn’t mince words about her stance on feminism.
“People always ask me, ‘Are you a feminist?’” the Wonder Woman star said. “And I find the question surprising, because I think, ‘Yes, of course. Every woman, every man, everyone should be a feminist. Because whoever is not a feminist is a sexist.'”
With Gadot and director Patty Jenkins at its helm, Wonder Woman injected some much-needed spark into the DC comic film franchise, and broke some records to boot. The movie has grossed almost $800 million worldwide, making it the highest-grossing live-action film by a female director. (Take that, James Cameron.)
“It just shows that the world was ready for a female-driven action movie,” Gadot said.
But even Wonder Woman contends with sexism from time to time. “I’ve had my moments where I’ve felt like men were misbehaving — nothing sexual, but inappropriate in a sexist way,” the actress noted. “Dismissive. Life wasn’t always rosy and peachy for me as a woman in the world.”
