Wonder Woman blew everyone away this past weekend with both its box office performance and killer storyline, proving that there is more than enough room for powerful women in cinema. Now Wonder Woman herself, Gal Gadot, has released a thank you video to show how grateful she is for this incredible and well-deserved achievement, HelloGiggles reports.

“Thank you for making this weekend the most amazing weekend and the craziest weekend I’ve ever had in my life,” Gadot said in a video she posted on her Twitter account. “You made this movie what it is and your love and your support for this character and myself are not to be taken for granted.”
According to The Guardian, Wonder Woman has already broken a box office record for female directors. Thanks to the film’s opening weekend total of $223 million, director Patty Jenkins is now behind the biggest U.S. opening of a female-directed film since Fifty Shades of Grey. This is a much better tradeoff, right?
“This is all you, so a big thank you,” Gadot shared. “I’m sending you guys all the good energy and love back.”
Props to Gadot for delivering such an impactful performance in Wonder Woman and making us feel like we’re right alongside her in her success.
