Thrashing all kinds of box office records, Wonder Woman is now the highest opening movie of all time. To top it off, it was directed by a woman, Patty Jenkins. Gal Gadot played the fierce, funny and amazingly brave Wonder Woman and we were left awe-struck. If you have been thinking about her all day long (Which you should have been), here are some lesser known facts about this Diva.
There’s a lot in her name
Gal belongs to a Jewish background essentially. Her name defines two things- Gal means ‘wave’ in Hebrew while Gadot means ‘riverbank’.
Gadot was a part of military
While you may know that Gal Gadot was titled Miss Israeli, you may not know that she was part of the military. And no we are not talking about relations. Gal worked with the Israeli Defence Force for two years, something she is very proud of.
Wonder Woman was signed for three installments
Yes you read that right. Gal Gadot signed up for a total of three movies in which she will be seen playing the first ever Amazon Princess Dianna of Themyscira.
She does her own stunts
You would have definitely seen this beauty in the Fast and Furious series. What you may not know is that our Wonder Woman pulled off all the stunts on her own. This makes her a part of very few actresses who do the same.
She filmed while being 5 months pregnant
Oh if you didn’t already know that Gal was married, she already has a baby. While doing the re-shoots for Wonder Woman, she was 5 months pregnant with her second child. What a brave beauty!
She not only portrayed, she was a Wonder Woman
It isn’t easy being Wonder Woman even in reel life. Gal put on 14 kgs of muscles for her role. Additionally she also practiced, sword fights, Kickboxing and kung fu among many others.
Gal loves automobiles
Gadot is self proclaimed lover of automobiles. She even owns a top speed Ducati motorcycle. Isn’t she just wow?
What a woman chosen to play the wonder!
