"She is full of heart, strength, compassion and forgiveness". Host Olivia Munn teamed up with Niecy Nash for a bit in which the duo gave a toast to the men of Hollywood who weren't secretly bad, like the people who didn't ask for meetings in hotel rooms, or the famous actors who didn't treat women "like crap", Munn quipped.

'She's not ideal and that makes her real, ' she said.

When Gadot was originally announced as the recipient in December, the Association of National Advertisers - which sponsored the award - called her a "powerful voice advocating for women, not only on screen as the iconic Wonder Woman but in life as well". "She gets confused, insecure, and she's not flawless - and that's what makes her real". And we will continue to band together to make strides uniting for equality, ' she concluded.

The actress was honoured with the #SeeHer award at this year's Critics' Choice Awards, reports Entertainment Weekly.

Gadot then brings it back to reality, and the challenges she has faced, noting that although Hollywood seems progressive, we're not there yet in terms of total equality.

"Wonder Woman" was one of the highest-grossing films of 2017. "She takes action when everyone around her is idle", she said.

Turning her attention to the Time's Up and #MeToo movements, which strive to quash systemic sexual harassment and abuse running through Hollywood and other industries, Gadot pledged her support.

Both Jenkins and Gadot are on board to return for Wonder Woman 2, which is scheduled to hit theaters November 1, 2019.
