Gal Gadot answers criticism of her body and portrayal of Wonder Woman

03.23.2015

There has been an unbelievable amount of backlash related to almost every decision related to BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE. Whether it be the casting of Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, or Jesse Eisenberg, everyone has been pissy about the choices Zack Snyder and company have made in the DC Cinematic Universe. Gal Gadot especially has been targeted in relation to her physical appearance with many saying she is not Amazonian enough.

In an interview for Israeli website Ynet, Gadot addresses her body type in playing Wonder Woman to some comments we have previously heard.

“When I was younger I could take criticism really hard. But now it mostly amuses me. The true Amazons had one boob so it won’t bother them in their archery. So it’s not going to be like real Amazons. We always try to make everyone happy but we can’t.”

I am glad that she is not taking the trolls personally. In this day and age of social media, people do not really have filters like they used to and that can be both good and bad. We hoenstly have no idea how she will do as Wonder Woman until we see the film next year, so we should all relax until then.

In some new details about her role, Gadot shared the following.

“She has unbelievable endurance. She is exceptionally strong. She can jump really high and practically fly. She knows tons of martial arts styles. She is a strong and serious woman.”

I like that they are making Diana's powers distinct from those of Superman or Batman. It would have been easy to treat her like the DC equivalent of Thor, but giving Wonder Woman powers that straddle human and superhuman will make her much more identifiable with audiences and give the writers a lot more dramatic license in building stories for her in future films.

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE opens March 25, 2016 and WONDER WOMAN is coming June 23, 2017.

Oh my god if we went by that casting mentality no one but Dwayne Johnson and 1980's Arnold would be suitable casting choices for 95% of male comic book characters. Hold back the judgment until we at least see something more than a photo. I remember almost EVERYONE doubting pretty boy Heath Ledger...

I hate how everyone uses the Heath Ledger defense on every single casting decision. Just because it worked once, doesn't mean it works every single time!

Additionally, Ledger proved he had serious acting chops long before he played the Joker.

Jack600 - Hugh Jackman, Ian Mckellen, Micheal Keaton, and to a lesser degree, Ann Hathaway, are a few instances where the fan base had to eat crow after casting news outrage. Ledger is just the most recent and the most ubiquitous.

And yes he had proven himself quite a few times over beforehand, but that didn't stop the fanboys from gathering pitchforks and lighting torches when they heard the "gay cowboy" was playing such an iconic comic book character.

The point is, not every casting

The point is, not every casting decision can be judged by initial gut reaction. Remember, everyone thought Bale was going to be THE perfect Batman.

But Ledger was ALWAYS a good actor. Gadot isn't just a bad actress, she is porn quality. She is so bad that I always cringed every time she was on screen in the F&F movies. Ludacris gave a better performance than her, fucking Ludacris.

The body is fine.

But she needs to lift some weights and eat a few burgers because her arms are skinny.

Haters gonna hate

I think she is gorgeous & have never questioned her casting as Wonder Woman. Until I see her in action, I am willing to give her a chance, lighten up a bit fanboys just because she doesn't have that so-called Amazonian body. How can you judge her portrayal of WW if you haven't seen an ounce of footage? Basing her performances in the F&F movies is such a cop out also.

Seems like everyone wanted a muscular stripper instead of a superhero. The idea of Wonder Woman should be similar to Batman and Superman. Girls should want to be Wonder Woman the way boys wish they were Batman or Superman. Breast size is irrelevant in achieving this.

She is beautiful. I would not kick her out of bed for eating crackers. Although she is not my ideal version of Wonder Woman, I would of preferred some serious curves with a bit of thickness to her frame like Haley Atwell or Gemma Arterton. My biggest concern is her acting like others have stated she was pretty bad in Fast and Furious movies, but wanting Carano or Rousey makes no sense either they are terrible actors as well. All in all it doesn't matter now, she is cast, so I just want a good

I don't mind her being a bit wooden....

Because that's the entire point of Wonder Woman. If she's glib and well-versed in modern slang, then the movie is a huge fail to begin with.

What's really funny is the same people who are complaining about her acting (based on an adequate performance in a huge blockbuster) are happy to ignore the fact that Cara Delevingne now has a massive ONE acting credit (and it looks terrible), and is HEADLINING Suicide Squad.

Talk about selective outrage.....

Cara Delevingne has two film credits, two TV credits, two short film credits, and a whopping FIVE films coming out this year. In addition, she is playing the part of "Enchantress", which is hardly a "headlining" role in Suicide Squad. This took two seconds for me to research on IMDb.com.

Are you confusing her with Margot Robbie (who has 7 film credits, 3 recurring TV credits, and a bunch of guest appearances) who is playing Harley Quinn? Which is an ACTUAL headlining

Regardless, neither Harley nor Enchantress have nearly as much presence, prestige or fame as Wonder Woman. Wonder Woman is part of the "Holy Trinity" of DC Characters. Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman are their top three heroes of all time and are infamous. Her casting is far more integral than a character who was added in the early-90s following her first appearance in an Animated cartoon (beloved though the character is -- by me as well).

Altogether, the support you've chosen to strengthen your point is incredibly weak. Nice try, though.

My issues is less about her weight and more about her acting abilities.

I agree with people's sentiments of Wonder Woman looking like a WWE fighter. That's not the character nor is it necessary to have the first female superhero (Elektra and Catwoman don't count) movie feature a woman who's suppose to appear more masculine so fans don't get upset because of how a "true" Amazonian should look based on drawings.

Expecting an actress to have the right body type as a comic book character is unrealistic

Besides, I would argue that her body is much truer to her character than Scarlett Johansson, who's considerably shorter than Black Widow is. I like her in the part but it does change something to go from tall to really short; it's not the same screen presence at all.

As for Gadot, her really thin resume scares me but if I end up not liking her performance, it definitely won't be because her breasts are too small.

The Black Widow is 5'7". Scarlett Johansson 5' 4". You would be technically correct of three inches were a "considerable" difference in height. In the comics she is shorter than Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner, 5'10") and Captain America (Chris Evans, 6'0").

"In this day and age of social media, people do not really have filters like they used to." Nor do they have spellcheck.

I just don't understand how you misspell words like that. I know it's not the end of the world, but it shows that you don't even care enough to reread the half a dozen paragraphs you wrote. How does whatever you type on not even auto-correct it. Maybe I'm way off base here, but it seems like a real lack of pride, ESPECIALLY for someone who is a writer.

PRACTICALLY fly, huh?

First off, no one's trying to be mean to Gadot. But we're talking facts here. All you have to do is open up a comic book to see that a skinny model with almost no curves is the WRONG CHOICE for Wonder Woman. It's as simple as that. Secondly, no one is looking for historical accuracy here so nice try on the whole Amazon's have one breast comment. We're talking about comic books here and lady, you just don't fit the bill.

Whilst I have no issues with her casting, I'm pretty sure she's been criticised both for not having the right physique and her acting abilities from day one...so not sure there's been any change in rhetoric from the anti-gadot's.

"The Amazons only had one boob" thing is a myth

so that's one strike against her. Besides, I feel many concerns about her are valid. In that shot, you could use her arms for pipe cleaners; not nearly the physicality of a Ronda Rousey or a Gina Carano.

As for her acting, I've only seen her in FAST 5, and she was pretty wooden in that. Granted, some great actresses are wooden when paired with a lousy director (Natalie Portman in STAR WARS) but I wasn't impressed.

Most EVERYTHING of what we know about the Amazons is derived from myths so I wouldn't call the "one boob thing" a strike against her in any way. She probably knows more about the character and its history than you do.

Nice try. Recent archaeological studies revealed that the Amazons did exist, the most likely location being somewhere between the Don and Terme Rivers in what's now Turkey. Aeschylus claimed they lived in what's now Crimea, but most other sources place them in Turkey.

The cutting off their right boob thing has been regularly debunked, since it's never depicted in any art (Grecian or Amazon) of that period.

She can't ACT and she looks like a toothpick.

Saying REAL Amazons had one boob proves she doesn't understand why people hate her. She embodies EVERYTHING that Wonder Woman was created to be against. Gal isn't a strong female, she is a friggin model. The worst type of female out there. She doesn't know the meaning of work.

Wonder Woman was created to empower women and show they they could be just as strong and protective as other heroes like Superman. She wasn't a toothpick, she was a normal looking girl. She had equal amounts of muscle

Gal is just a dumb as a box of rocks chick who gets by on her looks. Her being Wonder Woman is like Jerry Sandusky being casted as Batman with BOY Robin by his side. It just doesn't make sense.

This comment was ridiculous. Wonder Woman was created to empower women? That's why for the majority of her existence she's been in the skimpiest of outfits and used a sex symbol in the DCU? Wonder Woman was not invented to empower women, she was invented by men at a time when women were very much subjugated in USA. It's only in recent iterations (since the 90's) that DC has started to use her as an image to empower women.

And I don't see how Gal Gadot is NOT a normal looking girl. Sure

And I don't see how Gal Gadot is NOT a normal looking girl. Sure she may have been a model prior to acting, but it's not like Wonder Woman is an ugly freak of nature? WW has always been portrayed as a beautiful woman in the comics. Who cares how smart she is, it's not like a lot of actors are incredibly smart. Did Eddie Redmayne need to be well versed in physics to play Stephen Hawking? No, so why does Gal Gadot have to be a member of mensa to play a fictional superhero character?

The only part of this comment that has any merit, is that she CANNOT act at all. The Fast and Furious movies are proof of that. And that will be the downfall of her casting, not her looks.

Damn man. I'll agree it isnt inspired casting, but that's pretty harsh for someone who's only really been in a couple Fast Furious flicks.

Models are the worst kind of chicks? Come on man. Maybe she sucks at acting and will suck at WW, but neither means she is a bad person

You said "Gal isn't a strong female, she is a friggin model. The worst type of female out there. She doesn't know the meaning of work."

According to Wikipedia "She served for two years as a soldier in the Israel Defense Forces. She is an avid motorcycle rider and owns a black 2006 Ducati Monster-S2R.

First, this interview was for an Israeli website, not a magazine.

Second, how is that relevant? She's talking about a character she will play, not herself and her choices. Many capable actresses have played strong and serious women and also posed in sexy attire. The one does not exclude the other. You are just reaching.

You probably shouldn't take words quite so literally. It's perfectly obvious she wasn't sitting around in her knickers while conducting an interview (duh). I'm being facetious for humour's sake. Here, I'll walk you through it slowly:

On Tuesday*, she's talking about how strong and serious this character is, but last Monday, she was perfectly happy stripping down to her undies and saying, "Hey, boys, check out my little boobies because I know sex sells." I guess that's what a strong and

I guess that's what a strong and serious woman has to do to pay the bills, though.



*Possibly not on an actual Tuesday. It might have been some other day of the week.

For the last time, it's not her appearance that worries me personally, it's whether she can ACT! Judging from her previous work, I'm sorry if it doesn't spark much confidence. But hey, I'll give her the benefit of the doubt since I haven't seen one single frame of the movie.
