'Wonder Woman' Actress Gal Gadot Brushes Off Objectification: 'It's Funny For Me'

She isn't going to let crude comments from men get her down.

Gal Gadot has spoken about feeling objectified in her new role as Wonder Woman.

The Israel-born actress makes her debut in the superhero role in the new film ‘Batman vs. Superman’, ahead of her own stand-alone film based on the comic book series next year.

However, while the character has become synonymous with female power and strength, she admits that male viewers often have another idea when it comes to her portrayal of Wonder Woman, though thankfully she isn’t letting it get to her.

Brushing it all off, she told Fox News: You know, men. Every one of them is obsessed with breasts. Honestly, it amused me. It was funny for me that it's such an amazing character and all they have to critique is her bust.

“Me, as a person, I try not to pay too much attention to all the noise that comes when I get cast for something. Even if it's good or even if it's bad - because one day it's good and the other day it's bad, so I'd rather not pay attention to either.”

‘Batman vs. Superman’ has additional problems, aside from the fact one of its key actresses being objectified, as critics haven't exactly showered the superhero blockbuster with praise.

The new film sees Henry Cavill reprising his role as Clark Kent, who goes against the Dark Knight himself, portrayed by Ben Affleck.

‘Batman vs. Superman: Dawn Of Justice’ is in cinemas now, with ‘Wonder Woman’ currently slated for release in the summer of next year.
