Gal Gadot

While most of the people on this list aren't regulars at red carpet events and Hollywood soirees, we did want to include one A-lister. Gadot became an international star and a household name when she appeared as Wonder Woman in "Batman v. Superman" – not to mention starring roles in "Triple 9," "Criminal" and "Keeping Up With the Joneses." She also filmed the solo "Wonder Woman" movie and made her talk show debut on Ellen and Jimmy Kimmel. She became a UN honorary ambassador and, perhaps most important, just announced she's pregnant with her second child.
