Gal Gadot talks Wonder Woman as a role model, training for ‘Dawn of Justice’

Gal Gadot knows the pressure of taking on the superhero role of Wonder Woman and she’s determined to do it justice. The Fast & Furious star will play the iconic character from DC Comics in next summer’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the first in a series of new films adaptating those characters.

“I feel like I’ve been given a huge opportunity to inspire people, not only women. And not because of me but because of who Wonder Woman is and what she stands for,” Gadot tells Interview magazine.

The critics targeted the actress’s smaller size in playing the Amazon alongside Henry Cavill’s Superman and Ben Affleck’s Batman.
 Gal Gadot as WOnder WOman batman-v-superman“My mom is a gymnastics teacher. So growing up I was never sitting watching TV in the afternoons. I always played ball outside in the backyard. I was a dancer for 12 years. I did tennis, basketball, volleyball, dodgeball, you name it,” she said. “[In the Israel Defense Forces, IDF] I was a gym trainer on one of the bases in Israel. So my boot camp was longer than other boot camps. It was four months and all about sports, waking up at 6:30 a.m. and going for a run, doing push-ups…”
This is issue brought up in most interviews.
“I look at food as fuel and I want to give the best to my body,” said Gadot to Harper’s Bazaar. “It’s all a matter of measurements and quantity of the food; just enjoy your food…give the food the respect and give yourself the respect to enjoy it.”
