-In her Elle cover storyGal Gadot says she immediately reported Joss Whedon when they clashed on the Justice League set. “Oh, I was shaking trees as soon as it happened. And I must say that the heads of Warner Brothers, they took care of it…You’re dizzy because you can’t believe this was just said to you. And if he says it to me, then obviously he says it to many other people. I just did what I felt like I had to do. And it was to tell people that it’s not okay…But my sense of justice is very strong. I was shocked by the way that he spoke to me.”
