Israel might be looking for a super hero savior, but it’s not going to be Wonder Woman.
Gal Gadot told US late-night talk-show host Jimmy Kimmel on Wednesday that she has absolutely no interest in being prime minister of Israel.
After the Israeli actress told Kimmel that this had been her first time watching US presidential debates, the conversation turned to her homeland.
“As Wonder Woman have you considered running for prime minister of Israel?” Kimmel asked.
“No,” was her emphatic reply.
Nevertheless, the former Miss Israel, who plays Wonder Woman in the film based on the DC Comics heroine, took the time to explain the intricacies of the Israeli political system to Kimmel.
“It’s really hard to build a coalition when you have so many parties, it’s a thing,” she said of the notoriously unstable Israeli political system. She also went on to explain the lack of term limits in Israel, something enjoyed by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu — now in his 10th year of being prime minister.
Gadot was heading to the United Nations next week, where Wonder Woman was recently named as UN gender equality ambassador. The move was widely slated by critics, who asked why the UN couldn’t find a real woman as a role model.
