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.
