When you go see your favorite artist in concert, or catch that latest flick everyone's been raving about, you don't tend to think about what may have gone on behind the scenes in the making of the show or film. But believe us, behind the bright lights is world is filled with drama!
A bombshell story from The Hollywood Reporter about Ray Fisher, who accused Joss Whedon of racist and "gross, abusive, unprofessional, and completely unacceptable" behavior on the set of 2017’s 'Justice League,' also revealed that not even Wonder Woman herself was safe from Whedon's alleged abuse.
Apparently he pressed Gal Gadot to say lines she didn't feel comfortable with while threatening her career. One witness claims he told her "she's going to shut up and say the lines and he can make her look incredibly stupid in this movie." Their argument reportedly led to an intervention with then Warner Bros. chairman Kevin Tsujihara.
“I had my issues with [Whedon] and Warner Bros. handled it in a timely manner,” Gadot said in a statement about the spat.
