London: Gal Gadot says there was a time in her life when she was thinking of quitting acting.The 32-year-old actress, who will be seen playing Wonder Woman in the upcoming DC movie, says things changed after she was offered the standalone superhero film, reported Contactmusic.
“Being an actress is tough. The amount of rejection you get can be exhausting. It was literally right before I auditioned for ‘Wonder Woman.’,” Gadot says.
The actress insists she did not know exactly what film she was auditioning for when she tried out for the ‘Wonder Woman’ role but believes it is the perfect one for her.
“It was all very secretive. But without ever knowing it, I think ‘Wonder Woman’ was my dream role.
“I grew up watching women playing princesses or damsels in distress. You had Meryl Streep and Charlize Theron but it wasn’t common to see great roles for women,” she says.
