Hilary Clinton compared herself to the Amazonian Princess in the new Wonder Woman film during a surprise video that was presented at the Women in Film Los Angeles’ Crystal + Lucy Awards on Tuesday night in Beverly Hills.
The former First Lady of the United States of America shared a special message to honor Elizabeth Banks who was being honored with the the Crystal Award for Excellence in Film when she revealed that she had yet to see the DCEU’s first female-led blockbuster but assured that she was planning to as she praised director Patty Jenkins as fabulous and likened herself to Diana as she told the audience:
“Something tells me that a movie about a strong, powerful woman fighting to save the world from a massive international disaster is right up my alley.”
