How Gal Gadot Got Ripped To Play Wonder Woman
A former model and Miss Israel winner, actress Gal Gadot has always been lean and mean. In order to play the title character in Warner Bros.’s Wonder Woman, Gadot had to make her body a little less lean, and a whole lot meaner. Making the leap from model to superhero is no easy feat, but here’s how Gal Gadot got in shape to play Wonder Woman…
Gal Gadot-Varsano (Hebrew: גל גדות, pronounced [ˈɡal ɡaˈdot] born 30 April 1985) is an Israeli actress and model.
Gadot is known for her role of Gisele Yashar in The Fast & the Furious franchise, and as Wonder Woman in the DC Extended Universe, starting with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016), continuing as the lead in Wonder Woman (2017), and thereafter in the first part of the Justice League films.
