In 2017, everyone got to see just how hardcore Gal Gadot is when Wonder Woman was released, a film that moved some viewers to tears because of its depiction of strong women. Perhaps even more intense, though, is the fact that Gadot was five months pregnant at a certain point during filming, according to Entertainment Weekly — including days when she had to perform fight choreography! How fierce is that?
Of course, Gadot’s bump had to be hidden, so the costumers replaced part of her outfit with bright green cloth that allowed the special effects crew to hide it in post-production. “On close-up I looked very much like Wonder Woman,” Gadot noted. “On wide shots I looked very funny, like Wonder Woman pregnant with Kermit the Frog.” That sounds kind of hilarious!
Everyone on set, including director Patty Jenkins and producer Chuck Roven, was impressed at Gadot’s performance. “That was special,” Roven said of her work. “I’ve been doing this for a while but I’ve never had that experience before.” Sounds like Gadot is Wonder Woman in real life, too.
