The Walk of Fame organization has revealed that Gal Gadot is one of 31 individuals who will receive a star on the famous California landmark next year. The announcement was met with a congratulatory tweet from Israeli President Isaac Herzog, who referred to her as a star. In an Instagram video, Gadot shared that her husband was the first to inform her of the award, and she expressed immense gratitude and humility while thanking the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce. She added that the news gives her the motivation to continue pursuing what she loves.

Gal Gadot is set to receive an honor alongside various other film, television, and sports stars, as well as individuals from the American music industry in 2024. The list of recipients includes Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, actors Chris Pine, Christina Ricci, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Michelle Yeoh, Kerry Washington, the late Chadwick Boseman, musicians Dr. Dre, Gwen Stefani, Otis Redding, and former tennis player Billie Jean King. Gadot, who began her career as a beauty queen and model, made her Hollywood debut in the movie “Fast and Furious” in 2009, playing a retired Mossad agent. Since then, she has appeared in numerous films and television shows in both Israel and Hollywood.

During her acting career in Israel, Gal Gadot appeared in notable television series such as “Asfur” and “Kathmandu,” among other projects. She also made a name for herself in Hollywood by starring in multiple Fast and Furious films. However, it was her lead role in the 2016 film “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” as Wonder Woman that truly catapulted her to stardom. The following year, she starred in the titular role in “Wonder Woman,” alongside Chris Pine, under the direction of Patty Jenkins. This film proved that female-led superhero movies can be just as successful as any other superhero movie and that it is possible for women to direct this genre of film.

Gadot reprised her role as Wonder Woman in several other DC films and also appeared in the sequel, “Wonder Woman 1984,” which hit theaters in 2020. A couple of years ago, she starred in “Red Notice” with Ryan Reynolds, which holds the record for being Netflix’s most expensive film to date. Although it was initially anticipated that Gadot would portray the character in a third installment of the series under Jenkins’ guidance, DC made the decision to cancel the movie in December 2022, opting instead to revamp their cinematic universe.

Apart from being an actress, Gadot has also ventured into the field of production. In 2020, she made an announcement that she would be producing and starring in a series centered around the Egyptian queen Cleopatra, with Gadot herself playing the titular character. Interestingly, the Hollywood Walk of Fame boasts a whopping 2,789 golden stars, each commemorating significant figures in the American entertainment industry. It’s worth noting that the first Hollywood star was dedicated to Stanley Kramer, a notable director and producer, way back in 1960. All of this information was originally sourced from
