Strong queen

World cinema fans know Gal Gadot from episode 4 of the Fast Furious action film series. Gadot plays Gisele – a girl with personality, strong and ready to face all challenges. That personality does not come by chance. She was a member of the IDF for two consecutive years.

Gal Gadot was born in Rosh HaAyin in a family where her father was an engineer and her mother was a teacher. Since childhood, she dreamed of becoming a lawyer and studied hard to pursue that dream. By the time Gadot turned 18 years old, her delicate beauty and height of 1.78 m caught the eye of a beauty expert. Gadot decided to participate in the Miss Israel contest to challenge herself and go straight to the title of Miss 2004.

The beauty born in 1985 shared: “I just thought this contest would be a fun experience and never thought I could win. Therefore, I was really shocked when people gave me the crown.”

She humorously added: “For that reason, when I was sent to participate in the Miss Universe contest, I became a rebel. I was afraid that I… would win again and did everything to keep it from happening – being late, showing up in normal clothes. They forced us to wear dresses to breakfast. Who in this world needs to wear a dress to have breakfast at 10:30 am?

The other contestants all seemed interested in Gadot’s personality, but that rebelliousness caused her to achieve her goal: not being in the Top 15 excellent contestants in the finale. After the competition in Ecuador, Gal Gadot returned to Israel to join the army. She explains this: “Registering in the IDF is an Israeli obligation. Two years in the army is for the country, not for yourself anymore. At that time, you will throw away your freedom to contribute.”

After two years serving the IDF, Gal Gadot studied law to pursue her dream. At the same time, she still participated in catwalks and appeared on fashion magazine covers as a model. Gadot has four bloodlines (Czech, Polish, Austrian and German) and quickly captivates people with her seductive eyes and smile.

That beauty was spotted by a casting expert and gave Gadot the opportunity to audition in Hollywood. The role she was aiming for was the “Bond Girl” in Quantum of Solace (2008) but in the end that role went to the beautiful Olga Kurylenko.


Gal Gadot rose to fame after participating in three episodes 4,5,6 in the “Fast Furious” series.

After failing the role, Gal Gadot improved herself by going to acting school and participating in the Israeli TV series Bubot (2007). Not long after, the casting expert called Gadot again and invited her to participate in Fast Furious (2009). This is the film that helped her “enter” the film capital of Hollywood.

Towards the image of “woman-beating”

Gadot’s performance in Fast Furious made such a positive impression on the audience that from a supporting character, she continued to participate in the following two parts of this racing series. The character Gisele is Han’s girlfriend and a member of the Toretto “big family”. Thanks to her training experience in the IDF, the beauty said she could do all the dangerous scenes in Fast Furious herself without needing a stunt double. In addition, Gal Gadot always shows to producers and directors that: “I want to be a strong, independent woman on the big screen” rather than a “weird vase”.

Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman character will have her own movie released next summer.

After ending her mission with the Fast Furious series in episode 6, Gal Gadot took a new step in Hollywood when she was assigned the role of Wonder Woman. This is one of the most famous characters in the DC comic world, first appearing on the big screen in the blockbuster Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. When deciding to cast Gadot as Wonder Woman, many fans of this character expressed reservations. If in DC comics, Wonder Woman is an Amazon warrior with a busty body, Gadot has a body and breasts that are not plump.

The beauty responded to those criticisms humorously: “I’ve heard a lot of comments about the size of my breasts compared to the Wonder Woman prototype. But according to legend, female Amazon warriors only have one chest so that their arcs do not miss. I think if I were like that, no one would be satisfied, right?”

To prepare for the heavy role mentionedaove, Gadot participated in learning kickboxing, capoeira and jiu-jitsu martial arts. The positive reactions from the audience about the role of Wonder Woman after watching Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice show that Gal Gadot did not waste her efforts in vain. She is considered a “bright spot that surpasses both Batman and Superman” and makes many fans look forward to her own Wonder Woman movie coming out next year.

In real life, Gal Gadot is one of the friendly celebrities when she once offered to drive her interviewer home after a work session. The Israeli beauty has a daughter with her businessman husband Yaron Varsano. He was 10 years older than her and from the first time they met, Varsano realized that Gadot was the woman he was looking for. Just a few weeks after they started dating, Varsano confirmed to Gadot that he would propose to her in two years. That promise was kept and to this day, Gadot is still proud of her small family.

“When Alma was just two years old, my busy work life kept me on the go. I felt really stressedaout bringing my child from Israel to America and vice versa. But my husband consoled me: ‘Think about being an example for Alma. If you want your children to believe they can pursue their dreams, then do it yourself first. We will find a way to resolve the remaining things later'”.

Gal Gadot followed her husband’s encouragement and now, she has become one of Hollywood’s prominent stars.
