The "Wonder Woman" actress, 35, told Vanity Fair in an interview published Tuesday that she had "good intentions" but acknowledged the video's shortcomings. Still, considering how critically and commercially successful the first Wonder Woman movie was, not to mention how much bigger Gal Gadot's profile is since she signed onto the DCEU, it's only natural that a few more zeroes would be tacked onto her paycheck. Cleopatra is a story that I wanted to tell for a long time.

This new film is set to reunite Wonder Woman leading lady Gal Gadot and helmer Patty Jenkins to bring to life Laeta Kalogridis's period dramatization Cleopatra.

"There is something that I've learned to say, which is, "I don't disagree with you, but" - so basically I'm disagreeing with you".

Gadot said she was inspired by a video of a man in Italy playing the trumpet from his balcony for the other tenants in his building. Now, the "Wonder Woman" star is speaking out about the online ordeal.

The IMF's outlook for India is worse than the central bank's prediction of a 9.5% decline in GDP in the current fiscal year. Policy makers must avoid prematurely withdrawing support in order to avoid setbacks, Gopinath said.

Gadot's video was meant to inspire hope, but many received it as being tone-deaf.

"We are in this together, we will get through it together", Gadot captioned the video. "Sometimes, you know, you try and do a good deed and it's just not the right good deed", she admitted to the magazine, hinting at some pangs of regret. I adapted. I just came to the conclusion, 'I do me, you do you.

It's just as well that the actress addressed the whole "Imagine" affair, because now she's facing a new round of social media criticism, this time for being cast in an upcoming film as Egyptian ruler Cleopatra. From there, the concept grew and ended up becoming the star-studded video she shared with the world.

For the sing-along montage that was unveiled at the onset of quarantine in March, Gadot was accompanied by the likes of Kristen Wiig, Mark Ruffalo, Will Ferrell, Natalie Portman, Sia, Norah Jones and many other Hollywood elites. Although it was Gadot's idea as she said but only with an idea to do good and pure, but didn't transcend. "Imagine no possessions' sung by some of the wealthiest people in the world".
