Gal Gadot has been making headlines since she took the center stage in the Netflix upcoming film Red Notice, in which she equalled the pay with her male co-stars. In a recent interview with CNN News 18, she opened up about matching wits and fights alongside Ryan Reynolds and Dwayne Johnson, her insights about feminism, and much more.

The Wonder Woman said she was not intrigued about sharing onscreen with the best in the business. DJ-Gadot duo has worked in Fast and Furious (2009) before, while she has done a movie titled Criminal with Ryan in 2016. She thinks both of them are talented, fun and vibe perfect at work. She also remembered the witty moments from the set where Ryan made her laugh amidst the shoot, as she was easy to break. Altogether, the Red Notice set was a fun environment for the actress, she said.

When asked about her equal paycheck, she replied saying she is a feminist and she believes anyone who is not a feminist is a chauvinist. She believes in equal rights, equal opportunities and equal pay, so that she can make sure she doesn't just ‘talk the talk’ but also ‘walk the walk’. She also shared her happiness in being able to move the needle forward. 

In an earlier interview with Entertainment Weekly, director Rawson Marshall Thurber had talked about being surprised by Gadot’s athleticism. Gadot thanked him for his words and shared about her background in the action genre. She is very much into action movies and started her career with one as well. She also revealed that she had been a dancer for many years, hence dancing and fighting appear similar to her as it is all about choreography. “You have to express yourself with your body and it gets easier the more you do it,” she added.

Meanwhile, the American action-comedy film Red Notice will also feature actors like Chris Diamantopoulos, Ritu Arya, and Vincenzo Amato, and will premiere in India on Netflix on 12 November.
