Gal Gadot recently sat down with Good Evening with Gai Pines, a popular Israeli entertainment show, and discussed her being cast as Wonder Woman. Unfortunately for us English speakers the interview was conducted in Hebrew. Luckily, a batman-news.com reader was able to translate and provide a transcript.
When asked about people calling her too skinny for the role, Gadot responded, “I represent the Wonder Woman of the new world. Breasts… anyone can buy for 9,000 shekels and everything is fine. By the way, Wonder Woman is Amazonian, and historically accurate Amazonian women actually had only one breast. So, if I’d really go ‘by the book’…it’d be problematic.”
She also stated that she has begun her physical preparations to prepare for the role. Her training regimen includes kickboxing, Kung Fu, sword training, as well as Brazilian Jujitsu.
