‘Wonder Woman with a bump’—Gal Gadot shares a hilarious yet challenging insight into shooting superhero action scenes while pregnant, revealing the true trials of balancing both roles with her trademark tomboy spirit.

Wonder Woman became a massive hit after earning more than $400 million domestically and close to $800 million worldwide.


But leading lady Gal Gadot, 32, has joked about the difficulties she faced when filming action scene re-shoots for the superhero movie while pregnant with her second child.
Posing on the cover of the new issue of Rolling Stone magazine, the actress admitted she was initially reluctant to share the news that she was expecting with the cast and crew.

She said: ‘I didn’t want attention. The default should be that women get the job done, but there’s a long way to go and a lot of reprogramming that needs to be done to both genders.
‘We cut open the costume and had this green screen on my stomach. It was funny as hell – Wonder Woman with a bump.’
In the new issue of Rolling Stone – for which she wears the superhero’s signature wristlets – Gal also revealed she was a tomboy growing up in Israel and often got scraped up as she played hard.

‘There was no TV-watching. It was always “Take a ball and go play,”‘ she began.
‘In general, I was a good girl, a good student, a pleaser, and I was a tomboy. Always with wounds and scratches on my knees.’
From a young age the star was taught to be tough. Gal and her younger sister were taught ‘to believe that we’re capable, to value ourselves’ as they grew up in Rosh Ha’ayin, a small city in the center of Israel.

It taught her to not be a shrinking violet. ‘People always ask me, “Are you a feminist?” And I find the question surprising, because I think, “Yes, of course. Every woman, every man, everyone should be a feminist. Because whoever is not a feminist is a sexist.”‘

So it’s odd that she entered the modeling world.
Gadot said: ‘I was like, “Posing for money? Ugh, it’s not for me.”‘


After serving her two mandatory years in the Israel Defense Forces, she entered the Miss Israel pageant.
‘I told myself, “I’m just gonna do this. They’re gonna fly us to Europe, and I’m gonna get to tell my grandchildren that Grandmom did the Miss Israel thing.”
She added: ‘Little did I know that I would win.’
Next came the Miss Universe pageant: ‘I knew that I did not want to win Miss Universe. It wasn’t my thing. For an 18-year-old, it looked like too much responsibility. I lost majorly. I victoriously lost.’

The start: ‘Zack [Snyder] called me and was like, “So do you know what you’re testing for?” I said, No. He said, “Well, I’m not sure if you have her in Israel, but did you hear about Wonder Woman?”‘
Then came love. She married real-estate developer Yaron Versano and they talked their future. She entered law school.
But she was pulled back into show biz when she was asked to audition as a Bond girl.
‘I told my agent, “What are you talking about? I’m in school. I’m not an actress. I’m not gonna go.” And he was like, “Just show respect and go.”‘
The audition led to a part in The Fast And The Furious, which led to Wonder Woman.
Update: She now lives in LA with her family and her new movie Justice League will be released on November 17

She knew who WW was. Lynda Cater had played the superhero with much success in the 1970s TV series.
‘I’ve had my moments where I’ve felt like men were misbehaving – nothing sexual, but inappropriate in a sexist way. Dismissive. Life wasn’t always rosy and peachy for me as a woman in the world,’ she said to explain how she could relate to Diana Prince.

Gal now lives in LA with her family (she has two children Maya and Alma) and her new movie Justice League will be released on November
