Israeli superstar Gal Gadot expressed her excitement on Twitter Tuesday, announcing that she will be a guest voice on the iconic animated sitcom The Simpsons.
"I grew up watching The Simpsons and now I get to voice myself in an episode! Stay tuned..." she exclaimed.
Gadot joins a long and prestigious list of celebrity cameos on the long-running show. Since the show went on the air in 1989, it has featured the likes Tom Hanks, Oprah, Ringo Starr, Elizabth Taylor and Lady Gaga.
Her role on The Simpsons
is just the latest in Gadot’s rise to Hollywood fame.
The Israeli actress became part of cinematic history for starring as the title character in the 2017 summer blockbuster Wonder Woman,
which grossed over $400 million in the US box office.
She then co-starred in the follow up film The Justice League
, bumping Gadot to become the highest-grossing actress of 2017.
Hollywood heavyweights Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel were the only two actors to have had higher grossing films that year.
But her accomplishments extend far beyond the silver screen.
Gadot helped remove the DC Comic book movie franchise of accused sexual harasser and movie producer Brett Ratner from working on future Wonder Woman related projects. A credit that she says she shares with all people who won’t tolerate this behavior.

At the 2018 Critics Choice Awards, Gadot was prized the #SeeHer Award because she used her status in the film industry to “help improve fairness for all genders.” An award that she dedicated to all the “men and women standing up for what is right” earning her cheers and a standing ovation.
Revlon took note of Gadot's influence promoting equality for women and recruited Gadot to be their new "feminist" global brand ambassador in order to promote feminism through their company.
Gadot's influence in promoting a safety for women was on full display during the 75th annual Golden Globe Awards when she dressed in black in support of the Time's Up Campaign, a civil rights movement built to fight sexual harassment in the work place.
And to top it off, in 2017, Gadot was named “Woman of the Year” by GQ magazine because of her success in Wonder Woman and the waves that she is making in Hollywood.
