    Gal Gadot had a pretty ‘wonderful’ year. According to a new report from Forbes, the 32-year-old Wonder Woman star is the year’s highest-grossing actress, with her films earning more than $1.4 billion worldwide.

    Gadot took the title thanks to her two appearances as the Amazonian warrior—first in Wonder Woman and then again in Justice League. That’s a lot of butt-kicking for one year!

    Gadot’s amazing performance in Wonder Woman under the direction of Patty Jenkins helped break several other records, too, as the film became the highest-grossing live-action movie directed by a woman, earning $822 million worldwide. How’s that for girl power?

    Topping the the 2017 list for highest-grossing male actors was Vin Diesel, whose films earned $1.6 billion worldwide. His roles this year included the latest instalment of the Fast and Furious series, Fate of the Furious, as well as the action film xXx: The Return of Xander Cage. Fate of the Furious kicked serious butt in the box office, bringing in a whopping $1.2 billion worldwide.

    Right behind Vin Diesel was his Furious costar Dwyane ‘The Rock’ Johnson, whose 2017 films brought in $1.5 billion.

    2017 was undeniably great for these actors, and we can’t wait to see what they get up to in 2018!
