"Wonder Woman" might just be DC Comics most well reviewed movie, but "Clueless" star Alicia Silverstone isn't the movie's biggest fan and pretty unimpressed with the film being hyped for having a female lead.
"Before Wonder Woman… there have been many movies with female leads. So I get a little confused," Silverstone told Variety. "We have made strides, of course. I think about, what about all those wonderful comedians who are females who have had massive hits? There's Bridesmaids. There's a movie out right now...with tons of girls. I'm sure it's killing it, right? I don't know.
"I just feel like over the years...there was 'Mean Girls.' There was 'Clueless.' Over the time, we have had...there's been so many movies that have been female-driven, but we have also always had these pay issues."
Silverstone, who played "Batgirl" in the 1997 film "Batman & Robin", went on to say that she wasn't sure why it took a film like "Wonder Woman" to get people to start a conversation about females playing a strong, heroic role, which is something Silverstone said is actually not that relatable.
"It has to be Wonder Woman. It has to have tons of flash, right?" Silverstone said. "Like when you're looking at children's films now, as a mom, I don't want my kid to see all that. Loud effects, all the stuff that's like stimulate, stimulate! But that's what audiences want, so it's a tricky thing. Sometimes it's just the quieter more interesting things sometimes get seen because they touch someone enough."
Directed by Patty Jenkins, "Wonder Woman" hauled in $103.2 million it's opening weekend, and another $58.63 million in it's second week. That means it had a better second weekend than "Batman v Superman," "Iron Man 3" and every "Harry Potter" movie, according to Forbes. Overall, the movie has made $438.5 million around the globe.
Critics have praised the film calling it "thrilling, earnest, and buoyed by Gal Gadot's charismatic performance."
