Gal Gadot and Lynda Carter, both famed for their Wonder Woman roles, just staged a reunion of superhero proportions. While each actress is stunning on her own, the two beauties were a wonder when they teamed up at the Wonder Woman premiere.
Held at the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood on Thursday, the premiere gave Gadot and Carter the opportunity to hug and then pose for the ever-present cameras. Gal sizzled in a red Givenchy gown, and Lynda maintained her chic style in a black pantsuit, reported E! News.
Although Gadot, 32, stars in the Wonder Woman movie, while Carter, 65, soared to fame as the superhero in the 1970s TV action series, the two made it clear that they were kindred spirits as they embraced. Lynda turned to Instagram to share her enthusiasm, along with a Wonder Woman pun.
“Wonderful (see what I did there?) to be with the lovely @gal_gadot at the World Premiere of Wonder Woman!! #wonderwomanfilm.”
Carter also shared her excitement about the film itself on social media, noting that she was in Los Angeles and feeling “so excited to be attending the premiere of the new Wonder Woman movie, directed by my friend, Patty Jenkins, and starring the beautiful Gal Gadot.”
Lynda predicted that the film will be “great,” and she also expressed gushed about the decision to take Wonder Woman from the TV screen to movie theater screens.
“I can’t wait to see that beloved character on the big screen where she belongs. I know it will be great! Go see it June 2,” posted Carter.
Gadot and Carter previously spent time together last October at the Wonder Woman UN Ambassador Ceremony at the United Nations. The superhero was named an Honorary Ambassador for the Empowerment of Women and Girls, along with serving as the face of a campaign designed to raise awareness about Goal 5 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The mission is to achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls by 2030.
Supported by DC Entertainment and Warner Bros., the campaign began on the 75th anniversary of Wonder Woman’s first appearance in a comic book in 1941. It’s a dramatic shift from comic book to TV to film screen, with Wonder Woman marking the first big-screen film about the warrior princess/superhero (alter ego: Diana Prince).
Gal reflected on the journey of her character.
“It’s crazy to think that this character had been around for over 75 years and this is the first time we see her on the big screen and get to actually establish her origin story,” pointed out Gadot.
“It was an honor for me to do this part. I’m all about strong female figures and I love Wonder Woman.”
Wonder Woman soars into theaters on June 2, and viewers will see the results of the intense diet and fitness regimen that Gal followed to achieve her Wonder Woman shape.
Gadot was raised as a girl fond of playing sports, and prior to becoming an actress, she served in the Israeli Defense Force. But preparing for her role as a superhero required Gal to take her diet and fitness to a new level, reported Delish.
Water is a mainstay of her diet, and Gal revealed that she drinks “tons of water.” Her training team suggested a gallon a day, which helped Gadot cut her cravings while staying energized during her tough fitness regime.
That exercise routine included boxing, martial arts, the stationary bike, a rowing machine, and strength-toning exercises ranging from squats to pull-ups. Gal also enjoys paddle boarding and TRX.
Vegetables play a key role in Gadot’s diet, including avocado toast. Rather than chips or cookies, the actress snacks on fruit and vegetables such as fresh strawberries and tomatoes. And don’t forget the protein. Gal is a fan of fish, chicken breasts, and chickpea cakes.
As for Gadot’s Wonder Woman pal Lynda Carter, she’s also an advocate of a healthy diet and fitness. Carter told Energy Times that she does yoga, along with hiking and biking, to stay fit and maintain her ageless beauty.
In addition, Lynda shared her number one beauty tip for the skin.
“For skincare, I would say No. 1 should be to stay out of the sun. I try to load myself up [with sunscreen] and reapply it often.”
Just like her Wonder Woman film counterpart Gal, Lynda enjoys fruits and vegetables, along with protein. She eats the same breakfast every morning.
“I have whatever organic berries are in season, blueberries, strawberries, blackberries and raspberries, and I put seven or eight almonds and the same amount of pecans and walnuts in with them,” said Lynda. “Then I put some tupelo honey and almond milk on it.”
Carter had one bad habit that she’s recently surrendered, however.
“I used to be a total chocoholic.”
Now, however, the former Wonder Woman TV star doesn’t eat as much of that guilty pleasure, preferring to go for homemade soup, or cucumber with hummus for snacks. For protein, Lynda aims for “all organic and grass-fed meat and chicken.”
