Whether you are a fan of comics or simply like a good flashy story with a hero fighting some good old evil, you must have noticed that we’re seeing more and more female heroes gracing the silver screen. They are gorgeous, powerful, sensitive, emotional, and downright stunning in many ways. They are becoming role models for both young girls and adult women, inspiring them to become better and strive for more. More often than not women who play those superheroines are also amazing in real life. Here are 7 times superhero actresses were also heroines in real life.
Gal Gadot is a real workout monster. She didn’t get out of gym to prepare for her role as Wonder Woman in the adaptation of the DC comic. Needless to say, she looked amazing in the movie, but it is also her routine in real life. Gal Gadot works out hard relentlessly to be prepared for any role that comes her way and to stay healthy and fit. She’s a real inspiration!
Brie Larson was the leading actress in one of the latest MCU movies – Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame. She played the main character of Captain Marvel, a superheroine from planet Hala that ends up on Earth, joins the agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and takes part in the grand battle between two alien civilizations. The movie was a huge success, despite many fans being against Brie Larson playing Carol Danvers. The actress proved to be worthy and will definitely become even more successful in the future. Her light and fun personality makes everyone fall in love with her. Just look, she’s one of the few people who can lift Thor’s hammer!
Playing Scarlet Witch in numerous movies from the Marvel Universe certainly gained Elizabeth Olsen a huge fan following. Her character is deep and powerful on screen, but the woman is equally strong-willed in real life. She turns into a real fighter when it comes to our sweet Mother Earth, taking part in numerous environmentalist projects.
Evangeline Lilly is not a newbie actress and has seen her fair share of heroic roles. Not so long ago she played the Wasp along with Ant-Man, which is a truly iconic superheroine role we all can relate to. It’s always good to see gorgeous, talented, and wise women finding their ways to the MCU comic movies! And she is incredibly wise, each of her IG posts is filled with personal experience and valuable life lessons. Just check it out!
Margot Robbie has one of the craziest and funniest roles ever – Harley Quinn. She may not be a superheroine in an iconic sense, but she definitely fits the role in the Birds of Prey movie. She’s kind of an antihero, but when faced with bad guys a girl just has to fight them off, right? And this kind of makes her one of the good guys. Well, that’s Harley Quinn, but Margot Robbie is just as amazing in real life (in a non-threatening, completely peaceful way). She’s all about female power, using her voice and public attention to raise awareness about woman’s health. She’s doing an amazing job!
Lupita Nyong’o is a phenomenal actress, a model, and a rapper (yes, she can do that, too). One of her latest superhero roles is Nakia in Black Panther, a movie that was a huge success on so many levels. Lupita Nyong’o is even more amazing in real life. She was the first black African woman to win an Oscar and she was named the most beautiful woman in the world by People back in 2014. She’s an advocate for women’s rights and often speaks on the behalf of animals. She’s simply incredible!
Scarlett Johansson was the first big screen superheroine who paved the way for others to follow in her footsteps. Portraying Black Widow was a major breakthrough not only for her personally, but also for actresses in general. Scarlett Johansson is just as fierce and beautiful in real life as she is on screen. Being one of the first female superheroines on the big screen she had to dodge hundreds of weird sexist questions – and she did that unapologetically! She’s a beautiful woman and a huge inspiration for all ladies.
