"It all depends on the dynamic of the relationship that you have. Jaron and I were always on the same page. He comes from the business side of it, and we had a really great opportunity when he sold his entire [real estate] portfolio in Tel Aviv.

"Either he was going to continue real estate or come work with me, and I was like, 'Let's work together,' because he was the missing piece. 

She gushed: "Jaron has the business mind, and who else can take care of my interests better than my life partner?"

"I'm not the type of person who likes to sit and wait for the next offer. Heart of Stone was one of the very first ideas that we had. 

"I realized that we always feel like female protagonists are more for female audiences. With Wonder Woman, we really managed to prove that as long as the story is universal, it's good.

She added that she longs to help make a female-led film that felt more "gritty and raw" than your average polished superhero film, terming it "grounded."

Gal added: "Usually, as an actor, you get the script, and you can discuss the script with your filmmaker, but that's kind of it. In a way, it's super easy; you don't have to worry about anything. But there's something so stimulating and exciting in creating something from scratch."
