Leading lady Gal Gadot is the cover star of W magazine’s May 2017 cover. Wearing a Burberry trench coat, the former Miss Israel channels grace and a certain air of calmness that only a mother of two could. In an illuminating interview, Gadot opens up about her beginnings in the entertainment industry and the path that led her to reviving the Wonder Woman film franchise.

The 32-year-old actress shares that when she was approached for her first audition as a Bond girl in Quantum of Solace she had no intention of taking it.

“I said, ‘No way!’ 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.”

Gadot passed on the Bond role but later ended up becoming a part of the Fast and Furious cast. She later auditioned for the role of Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman where she found she had stiff competition for the role.

“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!”

After Gadot was announced as the face of the Wonder Woman franchise she received some distasteful comments from DC Comics loyalist:

“ ’Cause my boobs were too small. Yeah—that was a big problem. The web really paid attention to the important side of Wonder Woman.”

Today Gadot is proud to represent the heroine and aims to be a good role model for her two daughters. She mentions that she plans on taking her newborn on the world promotion tour for the film. Read more of the interview at W Magazine.
