Marvel and DC Comics have been duking it out at the box-office for years and, finally, we have a female superhero in her own successful film. From a two-year stint as a soldier in the military to being crowned Miss Israel, Gadot is a lot more than just a pretty face.

I came without gowns. They tell you to come to breakfast in a gown. I was like, "No way am I having breakfast in a gown! You give your freedom away. You learn discipline and respect.

She's come a long way since then! Now, she's winning critical acclaim and smashing box-office records. She studied law before acting Getty Images Despite her obvious talent, the idea of acting for a living seemed ludicrous to Gal Gadot in her early years. I'm way too serious and smart to be an actress, and besides, the script is all in English. The part ultimately went to Olga Kurylenko, but the encounter seems to have been a turning point in her career. I had finished my first year in school, and I decided to stop working toward my degree when I got that project.
Whenever I met with producers, writers, or directors, I said I wanted to portray a strong, independent woman. While they didn't necessarily buy into the gathering's theme of practicing yoga, clearing chakras, and eating a healthy diet, they were definitely into each other. Of the fortuitous meeting, Gadot told Glamour: He's 10 years older than me. He told me on our second date he was serious and wasn't going to wait more than two years to ask me to marry him.
Fast-forward two years; he proposed. We were married in It seems like her past experiences prepared her well for the physical demands associated with this breakout role.

It's not true, but that's fine. I'm a daring person and I always like to experience things but now that I'm a mother, I take a lot more responsibility and I don't do crazy stuff that can kill me. So, I do all the crazy stuff when I work and then in my ordinary life I'm very low-key. She stole the show in Batman v Superman: After gaining 17lbs for the role, it was clear that she wasn't interested in falling into the sex symbol trap associated with female superheroes like Catwoman.

She is killing it as Wonder Woman Getty Images It feels like everything in Gal Gadot's life has been leading up to this groundbreaking moment.
Of course, it's not just about the ticket sales. She fully committed to her role and it has paid off.

There are so many things we asked her to do: Now do it on one foot. Now shout while you're doing it. Now it's raining in the freezing cold and you've lost your voice, go.
Everyday it was a hilarious gauntlet and she would do it. She explained that, to take on the role of Diana Prince, she worked out a lot, incorporating a variety of martial arts. When she's not training for a movie, she sticks to TRX and paddle boarding. Despite how seriously she takes her job, Gadot also embraces her inner "foodie. It's all a matter of measurements and quantity of the food; just enjoy your food and don't eat while you drive and don't eat when you talk on the phone. Just give the food the respect and give yourself the respect to enjoy it.
They say, 'If she's smart and strong, she can't also be sexy. Why can't she be all of the above? Feminism is not about burning bras and hating men. It's about gender equality.
