Gal Gadot, the Israeli actress and model, has claimed that Joss Whedon, Hollywood filmmaker, threatened her career on the set of ‘Justice League’.
The ‘Wonder Woman’ star opened up about the threats during an interview with Yuna Leibzon, a Hollywood reporter, on N12 News, an Israeli television channel media.
“What I had with Joss basically is that he kind of threatened my career and said if I did something he would make my career miserable. I handled it on the spot,” she said.
Whedon, who is credited with creating shows such as ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ and ‘Angel’, had directed the initial version of ‘Justice League’, which was later remade by Zack Snyder.
In an interview with Los Angeles Times in December 2020, the movie star had also spoken on Whedon’s alleged behavior.
“I had my own experience with [him], which wasn’t the best one, but I took care of it there and when it happened. I took it to the higher-ups and they took care of it,” she had said.
The filmmaker has been under intense criticism in the past months after several actors on his projects accused him of being abusive and creating “toxic” working environments.
The filmmaker had also been described by Ray Fisher, a Hollywood actor, who also featured in the same movie, as “abusive, unprofessional and unacceptable”.
Whedon has since denied any wrongdoing.
