“When I auditioned for Batman v Superman, I didn’t know it was for Wonder Woman,Gal told W Magazine. “The director, Zack Snyder, asked me to do a camera test. That was torture. They were looking at six or seven girls, and we were all in separate trailers and were told to stay inside until they called us. Waiting is my enemy Number One, and I was losing my mind.”

Gal went on to say that she needed a way to find her zen and relax during the audition, so she decided to listen to one of Beyonce‘s most iconic songs.

“I decided to put on BeyoncĂ©,” Gal said “Who runs the world? Girls! I just started to dance, and I let my anxiety go. Thank you, BeyoncĂ©!”

Gal then went in for her interview and got the role – and the the rest is history!
