Israeli beauty Gal Gadot says she had never thought she would ever get to play an influential character like Wonder Woman in her life.
The 32-year-old plays the lead role in the superhero movie Wonder Woman, which released on Friday, and she admits the project is a dream come true.
“She is the ultimate symbol of strength. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I’d grow up to be in a movie playing someone who has influenced as many women as she has.
“Nowadays, being a woman is hard. So often, we have to be the best wife, best mother, best worker -- the best everything, it seems. But I truly believe we are more empowered. We’re also stronger, sophisticated and can achieve what we want,” Gadot tells the Sunday Post.
The actor, who has two daughters-- Alma and Maya-- with her husband Yaron Versano, is glad with the way her training for the Wonder Woman has transformed her physique.
“Since I started training, and before I was pregnant, I gained 17 pounds and it was all muscle. When you feel strong, it changes everything -- your posture, the way you walk.
This little lady has a beautiful soul, she surprises me everyday, I hope to always be able to brighten up her day like she does mine. Today, I want to encourage you to share a photo of a woman that inspires you, let them know you appreciate them. Tag me in the photo’s I’d love to see who these special women are! <3 #positivevibes #wcw #throwback
“I look at photos from five years ago and think: ‘Whoa, I was too skinny.’ Not cool.”
