LOS ANGELES (AP) — Only in the modern era of superhero films could a $96 million opening weekend be considered anything less than impressive. But that's the situation Warner Bros. and DC's "Justice League" find themselves in.

It’s hard to imagine anyone other than Gal Gadot wielding the Lasso of Truth, but she was close to giving up on acting before landing the role of Wonder Woman.

In a Sunday Today interview with Willie Geist, the 32-year-old admitted that she considered going back to law school to support her family rather than deal with more rejection in Hollywood.

When asked how close she actually came to quitting, Gadot replied, “I was as close as it gets.”

“There’s so much ‘no,’ ” she explained of auditioning in Los Angeles after working on a few Fast and the Furious films. “There’s so much rejection in this world that I thought, ‘Maybe it’s not for me. …Maybe I should go back to law school instead of dragging my family with me.’ ”

Gadot also shared that acting fell into her lap after she competed in pageants — she won the title of Miss Israel in 2004 and went to compete with Miss Universe.

“I never thought about becoming an actress and the opportunity kind of came my way,” she shared. “I started to become more curious about it, and then I fell in love with the profession — but it wasn’t like I was growing up dreaming of becoming an actress.”

“Then everything changed again,” the mother of two said with a smile of being cast as the iconic superhero.

Gadot recently addressed rumors that she had refused to play Wonder Woman again if Brett Ratner was involved in the sequel in the wake of multiple allegations of sexual misconduct against the producer.

The actress — who reprises the character in Justice League — stopped by Today Wednesday where she spoke out for the first time about reports first published by Page Six.

“At the end of the day, a lot has been written about my views and the way that I feel, and everyone knows the way that I feel because I’m not hiding anything,” she told Savannah Guthrie. “But the truth is, there’s so many people making this movie — it’s not just me — and they all echoed the same sentiments.”

“Everyone knew what the right thing to do,” Gadot added. “But there was nothing for me to actually come and say because was already done before this article came out.”

With two young daughters at home, Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard have worked out the perfect parenting tactic: the “tag team.”

“We switch kids all the time,” the Frozen actress tells PEOPLE of her children Lincoln, 4, and Delta, 2, at Alliance of Moms’ Raising Baby event on Saturday. “Because if I’m talking to the 2½-year-old, and I’m done, I’ll just be like, ‘We’ve got to switch. I don’t want to talk to this kid anymore.’ ”

Bell, 37, explains that the kid-swapping is done with good intentions: to give them the attention they deserve.

“You don’t want to be reactive to you kids. You want to be thoughtful, and you want to be setting a good example,” she says. “Sometimes that example is crying in front of them and saying, ‘I’m overwhelmed,’ or ‘I’m sad because of XYZ,’ or ‘I’m just sad because I’m feeling sad. I’m going to let my sad out. And then I’m going to find a way to cheer myself up.’ “

The actress continues, “It’s not about perfection, but it is about being thoughtful and not reactive. So in order to not be reactive, we switch kids a lot.”

Bell admits that Shepard’s parenting game is impressive, and that she’s the “pushover.”

“I’m not shocked at how good parenting is, because he’s very familiar with how the human brain works,” she says. “I have trouble staying one step ahead of my kids. He does not.”

Bell says the hardest part of motherhood if the lack of sleep.

“I think that fuels everything. It fuels my lack of patience with my kids sometimes,” she explains. “If I had had a full night’s rest, I would be able to be more patient with them sometimes.”

The actress continues, “It’s a toss-up between that, and truly feeling confident that what you’re doing for your child is the best thing, because it is extremely counterintuitive. Giving them everything and keeping them happy is not the best thing for the development of their character. Sometimes explaining to them, ‘You don’t get everything you want, it’s okay that you can cry about it right now,’ is what’s better for them in the long run, and that’s hard to be the reason your child’s crying and sit there and watch it cry.”

Bell and Shepard have been open about their relationship’s “volatile” start and the importance of therapy in their marriage. They also recognize the need to take brief breaks from their kids, even if it’s hard to fit into their busy schedules.

“You just do. There’s no easy way,” Bell says. “Sometimes you don’t, and then you have a stressful couple months, and then you find time to do. There’s no trick to doing it, other than having really good communication with your partner, and being able to say, ‘I’m reaching capacity. So I need to go take a hike today, or I need to go have lunch with a girlfriend.'”

She adds, “Something that makes me feel like a woman again.”

Country singer and songwriter Mel Tillis has died, according to multiple outlets. He was 85.

The country legend had battled intestinal issues since early 2016 and died following a lengthy struggle to regain his health in a Florida hospital, a statement from Tillis’ representatives said.

Tillis’ suspected cause of death is respiratory failure.

The Country Music Hall of Fame inductee, who was beloved for his stutter, wrote hits for Kenny Rogers and had several top 10 country singles including “Good Woman Blues,” ”Coca Cola Cowboy” and “Southern Rain.”

In a statement posted to her own Facebook official page, Tillis’ daughter Pam Tillis — one of his six children — said she was “deeply saddened” by his death.

“Pam’s father was dearly loved and one of a kind,” the statement shared on behalf of the singer, 60, said. “Please take a moment and visit Official Mel Tillis and let them know how you felt about this south Florida poet that was a master songwriter, brilliant comedian and beloved father.”

Following the news of his passing, country musicians and fans mourned Tillis on Twitter.

“What an incredible loss for the country music word. Mel Tillis will be greatly missed,” wrote country music trio Rascal Flatts.

Blake Shelton added in his own tweet: “What a truly devastating loss. I loved Mel. I will miss him terribly. My thoughts and prayers to all his family.”
