Gal Gadot is taking on Wonder Woman haters who feel that regardless of her acting skills, her appearance does not measure up to the traditional image of the female superhero. Showing her sense of humor, Gal mocked the Wonder Woman slams that seemed to view the size of her breasts as the most important qualification, reported EW.
Despite those slams, Batman v Superman is getting kudos for becoming the first movie to return Wonder Woman to theaters following a 75-year-long drought. Gadot is also being praised for her role as Wonder Woman, but some fans can’t seem to overcome their first reactions, which objected to how she looked.
Gal dished the details of those negative comments with Conan O’Brien, who invited Gadot along with the Batman v Superman cast to his Thursday show.
“There were comments they wanted her to be more bosomy,” Conan noted.
“Bigger hearts,” mocked Gal. “Yes, there were some people who had a lot to say about my hearts.”
However, Gadot pointed out that it’s impossible to satisfy every movie goer, particular when it comes to a role such as Wonder Woman. Moreover, Gadot reflected that the traditional Amazon warrior had just one breast.
“At the end of the day you can’t please them all, and I completely understand that. And if you want to be original to the story, the Amazons used to have only one breast, because it was in the way with the [bow and arrow],” added Gal.
Gadot is getting used to having her breasts become part of the dialogue for discussions about her role as Wonder Woman. Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Gal told the host that she was waiting for him to raise the topic after he mentioned her Wonder Woman costume.
“I thought you were leading to the fact that a lot of comic fans had a lot to say about my breasts,” admitted Gadot.
When it comes to separating out the criticism she has received, Gal blames men for their obsession with her bosom.
“You know, men. Every one of them is obsessed with breasts,” complained Gadot.
But she also finds it entertaining, pointing out that Wonder Woman is a superhero to be admired, and instead haters are focused on the size of her breasts. However, Gal seeks to ignore all comments.
“It was funny for me that it’s such an amazing character and all they have to critique is her bust.”
In addition, with the success that Gal achieved as Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, a solo Wonder Woman movie is coming in the future, according to the Independent.
Gadot also turned to Twitter to urge that more female superheroes become part of the movie landscape.
Gal also emphasized what she appreciates in Wonder Woman.
“Everything she stands for – compassion, love, truth, justice, equality. She’s a whole lot of woman!” tweeted Gadot.
Gal has impressive credentials, pointed out the Daily Beast. From Fast and Furious to Fast 6 and beyond, Gadot has shown that she’s got the up-for-action, adventurous nature to take on and defy the bad guys.
And despite those who complained that Gal was too slim and lacked the credentials to play a female superhero, Gadot, in reality, went through military training with two years spent in the Israel Defense Forces. She also received the Miss Israel title.
As for how Gal appears in the new superhero film, Gadot is a femme fatale to be reckoned with, both uber-sexy, as well as exquisite. And her Wonder Woman knows just how to use her superpowers for good. By the time the solo Wonder Woman movie arrives in 2017, Gal just might have achieved acceptance regardless of the size of her breasts.
