New Wonder Woman and Israeli model and actress Gal Gadot is taking some heat for a new "racy" Castro Jeans commercial.
It seems some are offended by the fact that Gadot is shaking her body as Israeli TV viewers have complained that the ad is airing during the daytime.
Gadot commented on the complaints to Israel’s Channel 2 News (via THR).
"I am very much in favor of women's rights, being a woman myself, and I support intelligent, successful, independent working women,” she said. “I shot the commercial from a place of having fun and amusement. Not every commercial comes with a certain agenda. For me, it was fun, and I had no intention of hurting anyone.”
Gadot continues with mention of being grateful for Wonder Woman and support for her acting roles.
"All in all, the support has been amazing," Gadot said. "I'm a million percent involved, and I don't relate to myself as a brand. It's embarrassing for me to say that. I'm a human being, an actress, a model, and that is what I do for a living. Behind all that, there's a troop of agents in Israel and the U.S. that all [develop], together with me, a strategy or direction in terms of decision-making or deciding not to take a certain offer."
“No matter what I do, there will always be those who will love it and those who won't," she continued. "So I keep on going my way, and whoever is with me, they're with me.”
Here is the Gal Gadot commercial that's in question:
