Gal Gadot had to face a lot of negativity when she got cast for playing the iconic role of Wonder Woman. Some men called her skinny, and other labeled her too feminine to carry the strong personality of Diana Prince.
However, when Batman V Superman came out, these same fans started to show their admiration for her portrayal of the character, and now, after the release of Wonder Woman, she has attained goddess like status in the hearts of DC Fanboys.
To be honest, we understand the apprehensions of fans with her selection to play Wonder Woman; she had only played characters that depicted her as an eye-candy, especially her part in Fast & Furious Franchise. But we cannot deny the fact that it was F&F movies that gave her the proper exposure to the massive audience that her career needed at that point.
Nobody had thought that Gal is going to be selected to play Wonder Woman, but Zack Snyder was able to see in her personality that most of us failed to comprehend. We are glad that, she got to play the role of DC’s most popular demigoddess because she truly gave us the best version of Wonder Woman till this date. She has the perfect balance of feminity, beauty, a powerful and influential outlook that makes her the ideal choice for playing Amazonian Princess.
We have collected some of the best photographs of Gal Gadot on the internet that will make you fall in love with her instantly! Here are pics, enjoy.
Most of us know Gal for her extraordinary beauty, but only a few people are aware of the fact that she was a fitness trainer in Israeli Defense Forces for two years, where she trained both senior and junior soldiers.
In Israel, all the civilians get drafted for Military activities in one way or the other. Our DC’s lead lady always had the penchant for outdoor sports, and army, hence instead of generating excuses to get away from the draft, she willingly joined the military in her 20’s to serve her country.
There is also a saying that Israeli women are not only beautiful, but they are also mentally tough. Israel has been in a state of war from past several decades with its neighboring countries, that’s the reason everybody has to become the part of the army, except in cases where people are suffering from paralytic or chronic disease.
Joining military at an early age has made Gal disciplined, gave her the confidence which is evident in her roles and a mysterious edge in her outlook that other heroines in her league severely lack. In an interview, she explained the importance of fitness in her life and how her army days influenced it:-
“It gives you values, like giving something of yourself, your time, your energy. It gives you good discipline because it’s not about you; it’s about the system. And it’s not easy, either. You don’t have your freedom, and you can’t go and do what you want to do.”
Let’s get the controversial part out of the way before we jump on this subject. Gal was not the first choice of fans for playing Diana Prince in the movie, in fact, people were so sure that she is going to fail in this role that some of the critics were even ready to bet on it. However, her small cameo in Batman V Superman told the whole wide world that she means business. And now, her performance Wonder Woman (movie) demonstrated to the world that she was not only a good choice, but she is the best live-action Wonder Woman version. The Rotten Tomatoes is filled up with reviewers calling her performance even better than the legendary Linda Carter’s, who had played the part of Wonder back in the 70s. According to the reports, she attained 17 pounds of muscles by working hard at the gym and restricting her diet to protein and carbs.
