Israeli star Gal Gadot dazzled on the red carpet this week, as she attended a series of worldwide premieres for her new movie, Wonder Woman. Ms Gadot plays the starring role in the film, which is based on the popular DC comic book character.
However, the actress had a slight accident just before embarking on her worldwide tour promoting the film.
In an interview on US TV, the 32 year-old told the hosts she had hurt her back “at the worst time.
“I tried to save the world once again and it's heavy duty”, she joked with Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest. The star had to conduct her interview standing up because of her back. Due to the unury, she had to wear flat shoes rather than heels throughout the premieres.
Although London is usually a prominent city on the premiere circuit, the event was cancelled after the terrorist attack in Manchester. On the red carpet in Los Angeles, Ms Gadot said that her “heart and thoughts and prayers go out to the families” of the victims.
Wonder Woman opens in the UK on June 1.
