Gal Gadot: I often stop and say to myself, 'Wow, it's real'

Actress Gal Gadot, famous for her role in “Wonder Woman”, unexpectedly won the Miss Israel crown and was sent to compete in the Miss Universe pageant. However, she tried her best to lose points during the competition by responding in a thick local accent, saying ‘I’m sorry, I don’t know English.’ In an interview, she shared that she did not want to continue being a beauty queen because she did not see herself as that type of woman. Despite winning the Miss Israel crown, Gal Gadot admitted that she was not confident in her own beauty and did not understand why they chose her on that night. After the beauty pageant, she enlisted in the Israeli Defense Forces and served as a combat instructor for two years before pursuing her studies in Law and International Relations with the goal of becoming a lawyer. However, her talent for acting shone through and she landed roles in several TV shows before being cast as the female superhero in “Wonder Woman”. The film’s massive success turned Gal Gadot into a star overnight, and she was offered a whopping $10 million for the sequel. She enjoys a happy married life with her millionaire husband, Yaron Varsano, and they have two daughters.
