Talking to W magazine, the new Hollywood mother revealed that she didn't even know she was auditioning for the DC role. She walked into the audition assuming it was a mere screen test for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

"When I auditioned for Batman v Superman, I didn't know it was for Wonder Woman. 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," she opened up to the magazine.

But where is Beyonce in the picture you ask? Well, as she was waiting, the Israeli beauty turned to Queen Bey to calm her nerves. Instead of reaching out to family and friends, Wonder Woman hit some awesome tracks by Beyonce. "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!" she said.
