Gal Gadot Ran 7 Miles a Day While in the Israeli Army

Gal Gadot looks gorgeous while posing for a photo shoot in Marie Claire‘s September 2015 issue, on newsstands now.

Here is what the 30-year-old Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice actress, who is playing Wonder Woman, had to share with the mag:

On training to be a soldier: “To become a fight-training instructor in the Israeli Defense Forces, I did a four-month boot camp where I had to go for seven-mile runs every morning at 6:30AM.”

On her beauty pageant days: “Before my army service, I thought, Why not try out for the Miss Israel pageant? I could tell my grandkids that Grandma competed! I did it to have fun, and made friends because I wasn’t competitive. I had no idea I would win.”

On growing up: “Growing up I was a huge tomboy. Now I love fashion and beautiful things. But I like to be comfortable. You won’t find me walking around in high heels unless I’m going out.”
