Gal Gadot doesn't get "star-struck" when she meets big Hollywood names. The 29-year-old actress had to audition opposite Ben Affleck for her role as Wonder Woman in 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' and although she was nervous because she wanted the role so badly she didn't feel in awe of the Oscar winner.

Resolved Question: What would you like to
The Israeli president, despite not being religious, does not travel publicly on Shabbat and will therefore not be able to attend the Olympic opening ceremony.
The President's office has been working on the visit to London for months. Peres had planned, along with dozens of other heads of state, to watch the opening ceremony in 17 days.
However, when his staff realized that the ceremony will go on for hours and will end at the beginning of Shabbat at sundown on Friday afternoon, they began looking for alternatives to travel back to his hotel by car.
They sent an official request to the organizing committee through the Israeli embassy in London and the Israeli Olympic committee to "allow Peres to sleep on Friday night in the Olympic village, by the main stadium", which would allow him to walk from the ceremony without the need for him to travel.....
However,...... sources in the organizing committee were mystified by the president's announcement, since there are at least two suitable hotels at walking distance from the Olympic village.
Could there possibly be another reason for him avoiding this ceremony?
What possible "other" reason might there be for Shimon Peres cancelling his visit to the Olympic Games? .
Isn't it obvious.....
Let's pretend nothing is going on.....
