Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins presented Gadot with the award, noting that Gal didn't take the role for the money or the fame.

She has trained for the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and supported its invasion during the 2014 Gaza War - an onslaught that took the lives of more than 2,100 Palestinians.

In her speech she noted that there are "very few female-led movies and even fewer female directors", but in 2017 that changed.
