Looks like we have one more thing to thank Beyoncé for. In a new interview with magazine, Gal Gadot formally thanked the singer for helping her land the leading role in Wonder Woman

No, Bey didn't call in any favors or run lines with the actress, but she did get her in the zone to nail her audition.

"When I auditioned for Batman v Superman, I didn't know it was for Wonder Woman," Gadot explained. "The director, Zack Snyder, asked me to do a camera test. That was torture. They were looking at six or seven girls, and we were all in separate trailers and were told to stay inside until they called us. Waiting is my enemy number one, and I was losing my mind. So, I decided to put on Beyoncé. 'Who runs the world? Girls!' I just started to dance, and I let my anxiety go. Thank you, Beyoncé!"

Needless to say, Gal was the perfect woman for the part.

Praise Bey.
