There’s no doubt that Gal Gadot is the perfect actress to bring Wonder Woman to live on the big screen.
Despite having a military background as a combat trainer, the former model and beauty queen had to go through months of vigorous training to get into her superhero physique.
Since it is mandatory for men in countries such as Singapore to serve in National Service, the actress was asked if it should be required for women to serve as well. “You want my honest opinion? No,” Gadot told Channel News Asia.
“I’m Israeli, and in Israel, it is mandatory for everyone, women and men … but me personally? I hope that no country will ever need an army. I hope that we won’t be fighting each other. And that we can all live together, in co–existence and peace,” said the 32-year-old actress.
Training to be one of DC’s most powerful super heroine was no easy feat. “I was training 6 months prior to the shoots and 6 hours a day I did 2 hours gym work, 2 hours of fight choreography, and 1 and half hours-2 hours horseback riding, which is super hard,” Gadot recently shared.
“Wonder Woman” comes to theatres on 2nd June 2017.
