New Wonder Woman Gal Gadot in The Stndrd: We Need More Female Writers in Hollywood

On her acting struggles:
"There aren't enough good roles for strong women. I wish we had more female writers. Most of the female characters you see in films today are 'the poor heartbroken girl.' That's why I'm so proud of the 'Fast & Furious' movies. I feel like [my character] Giselle is an empowering woman. I think I speak for the majority of female actors when I say we need stronger roles. My biggest challenge is to find more strong parts."
On juggling her career:
"Definitely more of an actress...much, much more than an actress. I enjoy both [acting and modeling], but I feel more satisfaction when I'm acting. I can give more of myself with acting. I do a variety of things. I've done comedy with the film 'Date Night.' In Israel I have done dramatic work. That's probably a question for the audience... but... I don't think they see me as only an action star."
On her peers reaction to her new fame:
"No I don't think [it was hard to convince people I was serious about acting]. Maybe people felt awkward at first seeing me onscreen, but I never had any bad feedback. Everyone was very supportive."
