A tabloid claims Brie Larson is feuding with Gal Gadot and Kristen Wiig after the Captain Marvel star supposedly dissed their Wonder Woman sequel. The story is completely made-up. Gossip Cop can debunk it.
“Brie vs. Kristen & Gal: It’s War!” reads a headline in the latest issue of Star. The accompanying article says the success of Captain Marvel, which surpassed 2017’s Wonder Woman at the box office, has gone to Larson’s head. According to the outlet, the actress has since been rude to Gadot and Wiig, stars of the upcoming sequel Wonder Woman 1984.
An alleged insider tells the magazine that Larson has a “cold, superior attitude” towards the fellow actresses at “social events.” The tabloid, however, doesn’t bother to mention when or where these “social events” have taken place. The supposed tipster goes on to say that the Wonder Woman stars overheard Larson saying their movie can’t compete with hers, and now they’re determined to get even.
“Kristen and Gal see it as their duty to bring Brie down a peg, as she’s alienating so many people,” adds the anonymous source. “They’re sick of it.” The questionable insider further contends that the Wonder Woman 1984 co-stars are preparing to confront Larson at next month’s Comic-Con. “Kristen and Gal will be there, and they’re plotting to fire back at Brie – aggressively.”
The outlet’s premise is coming from an unidentified source, but Gossip Cop checked in with Gadot’s spokesperson, who tells us on the record it’s simply “not true.” Despite what the tabloid’s untraceable tipster claims, the actress’s own rep confirms she’s not in any sort of feud with Larson, who’s never bad-mouthed the Wonder Woman sequel. An individual in Wiig’s camp similarly tells us there’s “zero truth” to the magazine’s storyline, while a mutual pal or ours and Larson’s tells us the actress isn’t even attending Comic-Con this year.
It’s worth noting, Gadot gave a shoutout to Larson on Instagram in March to celebrate the opening weekend of Captain Marvel. The Wonder Woman star shared artwork of their two superhero characters with their arms linked, and added, “I’m so happy for you sister! Congrats.” Star‘s article is just a lame attempt at creating a rift between the two women because they both headline comic book movies. In reality, the actresses support each other.
Additionally, Gossip Cop busted the tabloid last year for falsely claiming Gadot and Wiig were feuding on the set of the Wonder Woman sequel. The outlet is ignoring that phony narrative in favor of this new one pitting them both against Larson. And just last month, we called out the magazine for making up a story about Larson feuding with Avengers: Endgame co-star Chris Hemsworth. When it comes to battling between the stars, it’s only happening on screen.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
