The new ‘Wonder Woman’ movie starring Gal Gadot comes out June 2, but in the meantime, you can get to know the former Miss Israel better in the new issue of W. When she was cast, Gadot faced criticism online from fans who thought her breasts were too small to play the character. In her interview, she joked, “They really paid attention to the important part.”
Instagram user batzabbai posted the perfect defense of Gadot in a comment on the above pic: “She’s a badass Israeli babe who was in the military! To hell with big boobs, she’s tough, stunning, and intelligent—that’s Wonder Woman.”
In W’s latest YouTube video, Gadot describes trying on the Wonder Woman suit for the first time, the day after she was cast. “I almost died, because it was really, really tight—like really tight—but I didn’t say anything.”
Fashion photographer Craig McDean shot Gadot for W, and on the cover, she’s wearing a trench coat that slips off one shoulder, revealing that she has nothing on underneath.
In W, Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins compares Gadot to her character, saying “Like Wonder Woman, she is beautiful, kind, and strong.” McDean’s photos capture the actress’ natural elegance. Breast size be damned, it’s going to be exciting to watch this woman fighting for justice.
