The Israeli native, who is mom of daughters Alma, 5, and Maya, 4 months, with husband Yaron Versano, opened up about nailing her audition for the role after listening to one of Beyonce’s female empowerment anthems. “They were looking at six or seven girls, and we were all in separate trailers and were told to stay inside until they called us. Waiting is my enemy Number One, and I was losing my mind. So, I decided to put on Beyoncé,” she recalled in W’s May issue. “Who runs the world?’ Girls! I just started to dance, and I let my anxiety go. Thank you, Beyoncé!”
