Gal Gadot Admits 'Imagine' Video Was 'In Poor Taste'

Gal Gadot is commenting on the now infamous “Imagine” video that was released at the start of the pandemic in the United States in March of 2020.

The video saw lots of celebrities – Kristen Wiig, Jamie Dornan, Labrinth, James Marsden, Sarah Silverman, Eddie Benjamin, Jimmy Fallon, Natalie Portman, ZoĆ« Kravitz, Sia, Lynda Carter, Amy Adams, Leslie Odom Jr., Pedro Pascal, Chris O’Dowd, Dawn O’Porter, Will Ferrell, Mark Ruffalo, Norah Jones, Ashley Benson, Kaia Gerber, Cara Delevingne, Annie Mumolo, and Maya Rudolph – singing John Legend‘s iconic hit to attempt to lift spirits.

However, the video was labeled as tone-deaf on social media. You can watch it here.

Gal told InStyle, “And with the whole “Imagine” controversy, it’s funny. I was calling Kristen [Wiig] and I was like, ‘Listen, I want to do this thing.’ The pandemic was in Europe and Israel before it came here [to the U.S.] in the same way. I was seeing where everything was headed. But [the video] was premature. It wasn’t the right timing, and it wasn’t the right thing. It was in poor taste. All pure intentions, but sometimes you don’t hit the bull’s-eye, right?”
