Actor Gal Gadot has been given a phenomenal raise for her second round as Wonder Woman. The Israeli actor, who made a paltry $300000 (Rs 2.2 crore) for the first Wonder Woman movie, will make a reported $10 million (Rs 73 crore) for the sequel, Wonder Woman 1984.
The revelation was made in a recent Vanity Fair profile on the actor. Her new paycheque is 33 times higher than what she made for the first film. Gal was among the highest-paid female actors in the world last year, according to Forbes’ recent list, making $34 million.
“The success of the first ‘Wonder Woman’ film — for which Gadot was paid only $300,000, a figure that caused outrage in some circles as it paled in comparison to what many male action stars take home — helped catapult her onto the list of the highest-paid actresses in Hollywood,” Nancy Jo Sales wrote in her profile. “For ‘Wonder Woman 1984,’ she reportedly earned $10 million.”
