‘Wonderwoman’ Gal Gadot: “They said that I was too skinny and my boobs were too small”

wonder-woman - 'Wonderwoman' Gal Gadot: "They said that I was too skinny and my boobs were too small"

On being criticized for not having the right body to play Wonderwoman:

They said that I was too skinny and my boobs were too small. After they asked me here, In Israel, if I have eating disorders and why am I so skinny, they said my head was too big and my body was like a broomstick I can take anything. It’s just empty talk. I understand that part of what I’m doing means being exposed. And part of being exposed is being under fire (criticism). When I was younger I would take criticism really hard. But now it mostly amused me. The true amazons had one boob so it won’t bother them in their archery. So it’s not going to be like real amazons. We always try to make everyone happy but we can’t.

… says 29 year-old Gal.

  1. I think that the way the Israeli (from the interviews I’ve read, they have been tackier than anybody else) media has treated her has been pretty stupid and disgusting.

    However, I do find their decision to potray a Wonder Woman who doesn’t look strong or even athletic really weird, especially considering how Superman and Batman look in this franchise. They made Henry Cavill – who was muscular to begin with – buff himself up
    to a total beefcake to play Superman and from what’s been seen and heard Ben Affleck has done the same for Batman. When Gadot was cast there was a lot talk about a fitness routine to make her look stronger, but if this pictures are new, that obviously didn’t happen properly or at all. If their idea of a superhero physique is full-on greco-roman, it makes no sense not to follow this line of thought with how WW looks.

    Personally I love it when Wonder Woman is presented as not only being but also looking physically strong (take a look at how Cliff Chiang draws her, for instance). Nevermind her cup size, but I would expect WW to have an aura of power on her. With the looks of Cavill, Affleck and Gadot I just worry that she’s going to look even daintier and tinier in comparison. Let’s hope for hte best though. Maybe she has the acting chops to make this happen, but it certainly wasn’t made easy for her.

    But I don’t think that Gadot herself is the right target for criticism. It’s the production who cast a very petite lady to play WW without expecting her to grow a bit of muscle.

  2. I’m sorry, but those accusations were CORRECT. this photo is a f—g wonder WOMAN. she is built with muscle, and looks like a woman not a 12 year old girl.

    • I agree, I also don’t think Gadot could look like that even if she majorly worked out and bulked up… her frame is too tiny. I don’t really care much about the b❆❆bs but Wonder Woman should look like she can kick some major ass.

  3. She said athletic looking, not thick vs. thin. Izabel has a ton of muscle; this girl doesn’t. And even WITH all of Izabel’s muscle, I’d have a hard time thinking she could win in a fight against, say, a character played by Jason Statham or The Rock or something, as I’m sure the people WW beats up in the movie are by no means small or out of shape.

  4. totally agree–it doesn’t even matter who plays what part anymore b/c most films are CGI (action anyway–esp marvel recreations). furthermore, there are marketing agents involved who have influenced in who gets cast for what (the sell-abilities). psychologically, people want to relate to and BE the person on screen, and most women would want to be a skinny chick kicking booty than an average or overly muscular woman kicking butt realistically. suspension of disbelief…hollywood is silly.

  5. I agree Chros, but some women get so defensive if you say something like that, they need a reality check.

    Only in western society…

  6. And did you missread my quote? I said society in general has criteria and there is no point in being hurt if you don’t fit a certain mold. Molds are everywhere. That’s all I’m saying.

    But she got the part anyway, so god knows what she did do get the part.

  7. ”what criteria is that??”

    Hmm the criteria of fantasy? Hollywood? Comic book women? Let’s not play coy and this criteria doesn’t exist and that everyone is good for everything.

  8. No one said thicker, she said more athletic. Which is perfectly reasonable. I don’t think Isabel Goulart can kick my ass. I am positive that Serena Williams or Jennifer Ennis-Hill could do it, though. That’s what I understand by athletic, not spongy a– Scarlet.

  9. I think her point was, that she just did not want to get bothered anymore. Set a point and stop if you are not comfortable with things going on, and that’s what she basically did.

  10. this is not a skinny thing…and btw I don’t recall people coming to jenns defense I member hardcore huger games fans bashing her for not fitting the role its the same thing I grew up a nerdy comic book cartoon fan… and this girl is beautiful and has a sick body. SHE AINT NO DIANA PRINCE ut that’s not her fault its hollywoods…just like how Lawrence didn’t fit catniss but you got used to it 3 films later…and that costume effing sucks. im done now..i wont watch this movie anyway ill watch cartoons on Netflix.

  11. People are saying these things because they’re true! The bottom line is, she should NOT have been cast. Just like you wouldn’t cast Kim Kardashian as a ballerina or high fashion model, Gal should not be Wonder Woman.

  12. I agree! I somehow totally respect actors and actresses who change their physique completely for a movie: nathalie portman for the black swan, hugh jackman for wolverinr, jared leto in several movies, renee zellweger for the bridget jones movies and, and, and…. They seem so dedicated to their roles!
    I think when gal gadot makes comments like these (or also jennifer lawrence for the hinger games to be fair) I always think that they could have put in a bit more effort! It’s not like they’re not paid enough…

  13. Yep, but the Lawrence/Katniss case was different for two reasons: The
    attacks on Lawrence were mostly pretty sexist and they actually gave a
    pretty good reason to present a silm Katniss in the movies instead of a
    thin one.

    First, almost the whole population of District 12 –
    including Liam Hemsworth’s Gale – was supposed to be malnourished.
    However, in most cases only Lawrence was criticized for not being
    skinny. In Man of Steel and in Batman v Superman all the super heroes
    and villains are buff – except for Wonder Woman.

    Second, Hunger
    Games was and is hugely popular among young girls and Katniss Everdeen
    is pretty much their idol. The production team of the Hunger Games
    movies and Lawrence have both explicitly said that not making Katniss
    uber thin was a conscious choice designed to avoid inflicting
    unnecessarry pressure to be thin on their target audience. Which makes
    perfect sense. Seeing Lawrence emanciated for the role woul’ve been a
    very different thing from readin that Katniss is malnourished. In
    Gadot’d case there is no moral reason not to make WW look strong.
