Israeli actress Gal Gadot has reached a new milestone: a spot on Forbes list of the highest-paid actresses in the world.
According to the magazine, which published its list last week, Gadot clocks in at No. 10, earning an estimated $10 million in the past year. Gadot was the only actress on the 2018 list who hasn’t appeared there in the past.
Forbes said that her paycheck for the Wonder Woman sequel plus endorsement deals from Revlon and Reebok landed her in their annual ranking.
- Gal Gadot is new face for Huawei’s smartphones
- Israel’s own Gal Gadot named GQ magazine’s ‘Wonder Woman of the Year’
- Palestinian cinema bans ‘Wonder Woman’ because Gal Gadot is Israeli
No. 1 on the list went to Jewish actress Scarlett Johansson, who made an estimated $40.5 million in the past 12 months, mostly due to her role as Black Widow in the Avengers film series.
According to Forbes, the earnings estimates are “based on data from Nielsen, ComScore, Box Office Mojo and IMDB, as well as interviews with industry insiders.” Actual salaries for blockbuster films are rarely made publicly available.
