Playing Why Gal Gadot Was a No-Brainer to Play Wonder Woman in 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice'

Gal Gadot has been ready to play Wonder Woman her entire life, so she's not about to let a couple of Internet trolls rain on her parade.

The former Miss Israel takes on the most coveted female role in the superhero universe for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but there were some fans who questioned if she was busty enough to fill Wonder Woman's corset. In an interview with ET, Gadot shrugged off the criticism while rising above the negativity.

"I think there's an obsession about breasts in general," she said simply.

Internet comments seem to be the least of Gadot's worries. As a former Israeli soldier, she's had more than enough mental and physical training to effectively play the beloved character.

"This is the role of my dreams," the 30-year-old actress told ET. "Ever since I became an actress, I always said that I wanted to show the stronger side of women. Little did I know that soon after, I would land this magnificent role."

While playing Wonder Woman is tough, there's no harder role than being a working mom to a little girl. Gadot and her husband, Yaron Versano, are parents to 4-year-old Alma, who made playing Wonder Woman even more important to Gadot.

"[Alma] is all about princesses, and at the same time, she thinks they're weak," Gadot said of her daughter. "She always says, 'Yeah, they fall asleep and the prince saves them.' I'm so happy about the fact that we are bringing Wonder Woman back to life."
