Having to deal with questions about drama concerning directors and actors you know is no easy task, but actress and producer Gal Gadot handled this with great class in a recent interview with Israeli news outlet N12.
During the interview, Gadot opened about the recent story about 2017’s Justice League director Joss Whedon threatening her career. It seems like those reports were confirmed as the Wonder Woman actress opened up about the news to N12, stating that:
“I had my issues with Joss, and I handled it. He threatened my career and said that if I do something, he will make sure my career is miserable, and I took care of it on the spot.”
This news comes after months of allegations against Joss Whedon for his actions on the Justice League set. Ray Fisher, the actor behind Cyborg, first addressed his concerns about Whedon’s abusive behaviour towards the cast and crew, while actresses like Michelle Trachtenberg and Charisma Carpenter subsequently shared their own negative experiences working with Whedon.
In another shocking story that Gadot had to address, the actress was asked about Armie Hammer, her co-star in the upcoming 20th Century Studios sequel Death on the Nile, who hit the headlines earlier this year due to appalling allegations regarding sexual misdcounduct and cannibalism.
“It’s very complex,” Gadot told Israel’s N12. “If the truth is that he did the things [that are alleged of him], then a person has to pay the price for his actions and take responsibility. I don’t know what will happen.”
While Hammer has been dropped from all of his upcoming projects, Disney and 20th Century Studios still have the problem of how to handle Death on the Nile, with Hammer featuring in a key role and reshoots said to be extremely difficult and costly given the film’s ensemble cast. At present, it is set for release on February 11th 2022.
