The stars of the films in the DC Extended Universe aren't known for commending critics, yet Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot is full of surprises.

The actress noted that through her career she wanted to play women characters who were strong, independent and real, and Wonder Woman provided her with the best chance.

Also in the same category were "Thor: Ragnarok", "Logan", "Baby Driver" and "War for the Planet of the Apes".

The sparkling ensemble boasted a racy plunging neckline and lightly cinched to showcase Gal's tiny waist as she excitedly took to the stage to start acting out the hit tune.

Gadot also served as Jenkins' fierce dancing bodyguard. She commands the attention of the world, and in doing so, she sets a positive example for humanity.

'She didn't do it for the glory.

"We wanted her to be universal, to be an inspiration to all people all around the world, and our plan was to make sure we didn't give too much attention to the fact that she's a woman". This year, three of the top grossing films were female led.
