Wonder Woman Gal Gadot unloads perky assets in dress slashed to navel

Wonder Woman Gal Gadot unloads perky assets in dress slashed to navel

Gal Gadot delivered a powerful and inspiring speech after accepting the #SeeHer award at the 2018 Critics Choice Awards on Thursday, Jan. 11.

The award, created a year ago by the Association of National Advertisers, honors women in the film industry for their positive female representation in media.

Accepting the award, Gadot said, "Wonder Woman also struggles with her own love and hopes, she gets confused, insecure, and she's not ideal. She knew the great importance of this character and what she could mean to the world if well done", said Jenkins before presenting the award to Gadot, who led the film that would cross the $5 billion mark at the global box office in 2017.

The sparkling ensemble boasted a racy plunging neckline and lightly cinched to showcase Gal's tiny waist as she excitedly took to the stage to start acting out the hit tune.

The Israeli star told the audience at the Barker Hanger in Santa Monica she'd found the flawless role of a strong, independent woman in Diana Prince, aka Wonder Woman. "She's full of heart, strength, compassion, and forgiveness". Last year it was Viola Davis and this year Gal Gadot took the trophy and honor home.

Gadot added that when she began her career, there were very few female-led films, and even fewer female directors. And in doing so, she sets a positive example for humanity.

Gadot also made reference to the recent weeks, during which a number of sexual assault allegations have surfaced in relation to heavy hitters including Harvey Weinstein, Stan Lee, and James Franco. She dedicated her award to "all the women and men who stand for what's right: standing for those who can't stand or speak for themselves".

Gadot also expressed support for the current movement of people speaking out against harassment in Hollywood and beyond.

Gadot then noted that three of the top-grossing movies of the year were led by women, and eight other films in the top 100 were directed by women. 'So although this is progress, there's still a long way to go.

My promise and commitment to all of you is that I will never be silenced. When Wonder Woman won for Best Action Movie, Jenkins heard the not-so-sweet strains of cut-off music. Both Jenkins and Gadot are on board to return for Wonder Woman 2, which is scheduled to hit theaters November 1, 2019.
