Gal Gadot said she came a close second to Hollywood star Charlize Theron to play Imperator Furiosa in Mad Max: Fury Road. The 32-year-old Wonder Woman star revealed she has lost out on many roles in the past as she was not a famous name in the film industry, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“I had so many almosts for big, great things, but I was never a big enough name... It was always me and the big name. I was runner-up for Mad Max with Charlize,” Gadot said in Awards Chatter podcast.

When asked if she still wondered about missing opportunity of featuring in the multiple Oscar-winning film, the actor dismissed the idea saying there were no hard feelings. “Charlize, I love. We have Patty Jenkins in common,” she said.

The Wonder Woman director previously worked with Theron in the 2003 film Monster.
