Would you say that you’re a con­fi­dent woman?

My mom raised my sis­ter and me to be con­fi­dent women with as­pi­ra­tions. I al­ways felt ca­pa­ble. I’m not say­ing that I’m stronger than most men, but we all have the same brains and we can achieve the same things. So yes, I’m pretty much con­fi­dent. I’m like a horse, I look at my path only. I don’t look at what my col­league or friend has. I’m fo­cused on my way, and then I’m just con­fi­dent be­cause what­ever needs to hap­pen will hap­pen. That’s my motto. What­ever’s mine will al­ways be mine, and what­ever’s not mine, it will never be mine no mat­ter what I do, role wise. But, of course, I have my mo­ments, like any woman does.

What are your beauty se­crets?

When I’m wear­ing heavy makeup and I’m work­ing, shoot­ing out­side on set, and the makeup loses its shine, I use the Evian wa­ter spray to boost the makeup. It works like a charm. In my dayto-day life, I like to keep my makeup very light. So what I do is I mix my moisturise­r with just a touch of my foun­da­tion and I just ap­ply it with my fin­gers. So easy and nat­u­ral.

What do you do to stay strong and in shape?

When I pre­pared for Won­der Woman, I did work out a lot. I did a lot of dif­fer­ent mar­tial arts. But when I don’t work, I like to pad­dle board and do TRX.

Do you nor­mally diet?

No, not at all. I’m a foodie and I love to ex­pe­ri­ence food, but at the same time I look at food as fuel. I want to give the best to my body. So, of course, I have my habits, like I eat burg­ers or ice cream with choco­late. I don’t re­strict my­self, I can eat ev­ery­thing. It’s all a mat­ter of mea­surements and quan­tity of the food.

Most of the time you wear Tif­fany’s. Where does your love for Tif­fany come from?

My very first ex­pe­ri­ence with Tif­fany was the movie Break­fast at Tif­fany’s with one of my favourite ac­tresses, Audrey Hep­burn.

What is your most favourite jew­ellery mo­ment?

The most mean­ing­ful jew­ellery mo­ment for me was the first time I wore my wed­ding ring. My hus­band pro­posed in a very spe­cial way. But ’m go­ing to keep that story to my­self.

Sal­vado­ran de­signer Lula Mena de­signed a new col­lec­tion of jew­ellery for Can you talk about it?

Won­der Woman. Warner Broth­ers asked Lula Mena to de­sign a jew­ellery line that re­flects Won­der Woman’s at­tributes of courage, won­der, and power. So she de­signed three styles of cuff bracelets, with stones and crys­tals, re­cy­cled tire-tube rubber, and cop­per wires from a util­ity com­pany. I au­to­graphed the orig­i­nal pieces, so the pro­ceeds from sell­ing those bracelets will help train fe­male ar­ti­sans in El Sal­vador.

You’ve rev­o­lu­tionised the red car­pet by wear­ing flats. Please tell us more about it. That’s some­thing I’ve been say­ing for years, that I want to cre­ate this trend of do­ing red car­pets in flats. I love wear­ing high heels — they’re beau­ti­ful, they’re sexy. But at the same time, es­pe­cially stilet­tos, they put us out of bal­ance. We can fall any minute. They’re not good for our backs. So why do we do it? I can wear high heels de­spite hav­ing a sprained back. But I was like, ‘Let’s wear flats!’ I’ve been wait­ing for this mo­ment!
