With “Wonder Woman” sprinting toward global profits of $600 million, the movie’s star, Israeli actress Gal Gadot, set social media on fire over the weekend with an Instagram appearance alongside her husband, Yaron Versano.
In the picture, Versano is wearing a T-shirt featuring a stick figure of a woman of the type one might see at the entrance to a bathroom, with the legend “Your Wife,” next to a silhouette of Wonder Woman, with the words “My Wife.”
Gadot is shown pointing at the image; Versano points at Gadot.
Gadot, 32, and Versano have been married since 2008 and have two daughters.
Gadot returned the compliment to Versano on Instagram on Sunday, where she marked Father’s Day by uploading a picture of 12 donuts decorated with the letters for “Best Dad Ever!”
The accompanying text reads, “To my other half , father of my children and love of my life @jaronvarsano. You are simply the best dad EVER! I couldn’t ask for a better person to be the role model for my babies. You are our anchor, our hero and our heart — love you to the moon and back!”
According to the Hollywood reporter, “Wonder Woman” — which has already grossed $571.8 million worldwide — is on course to overtake 2008’s “Mamma Mia,” which grossed $609.8 million, and become the most successful female-directed live-action film of all time, not accounting for inflation.
At American theaters, “Wonder Woman” was pushed into second place over the weekend by Disney and Pixar’s release of “Cars 3.”
