Here's How Beyonce Helped Gal Gadot Land 'Wonder Woman' Role!
Here’s what the 32-year-old Wonder Woman star had to share with the mag:
On initially being asked to audition for a Bond girl in Quantum of Solace: “I said, ‘No way.’ I said, ‘I’m studying law and international relations. I’m way too serious and smart to be an actress, and besides, the script is all in English.’ I spoke English, but I wasn’t comfortable with it.”
On her Wonder Woman audition: “When I auditioned for Batman v Superman, I didn’t know it was for Wonder Woman. The director, Zack Snyder, asked me to do a camera test. That was torture. They were looking at six or seven girls, and we were all in separate trailers and were told to stay inside until they called us. Waiting is my enemy Number One, and I was losing my mind. So, I decided to put on Beyoncé. Who runs the world? Girls! I just started to dance, and I let my anxiety go. Thank you, Beyoncé!”
On why there was backlash to her Wonder Woman casting: “Cause my boobs were too small…Yeah—that was a big problem. The Web really paid attention to the important side of Wonder Woman.”
