New Interview: Gal Gadot 'Very Excited' for Role as Wonder Woman
By David Weiner
Newly minted Wonder Woman Gal Gadot tells ETonline that she's "very excited for what's next to come" when asked about the relative calm before the storm she's experiencing prior to filming her scenes in the highly anticipated Untitled Superman/Batman movie co-starring Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill.
Already a staple in three of the Fast & Furious films, Gal has been working hard to get into fighting shape for what will arguably be the breakout role that makes her a household name. A woman of strong conviction, she confides to ETonline that just hours after flying in from her native Israel, "I'm hyper [from being] jet lagged!"
Once again under the direction of Zack Snyder, the follow-up to Man of Steel begins lensing in April in Detroit, and now seems to be a stepping stone to a fan-demanded Justice League movie with the addition of Wonder Woman and supervillain Lex Luthor, played by Jesse Eisenberg.
ETonline caught up with Gal Thursday night at a special wine-and-dine event at The Courtyard at Sadie’s Kitchen Lounge in Hollywood which she hosted as spokesperson for Vine Vera Skin Care. Vine Vera is known primarily for its anti-aging claims and special formula exploiting the antioxidants of wine and grapes, and the 29-year-old Israeli beauty shares, "For me especially, I travel a lot, and with the weather change and everything, my skin gets dehydrated very fast. This product, and other stuff like drinking lots of water, and having a balanced life as much as I can, and eating properly, helps me to keep my skin healthy."
Standing at over six feet tall with the aid of high heels, the towering and fashionable Gal was looking every bit the Amazon she'll be playing on the big screen, her skin flawless and toned. In fact, the star has been keeping fans in the loop with her workouts with a series of selfies posted on Twitter.
Explaining why she decided to put her name with the Vine Vera brand, she says, "I fell in love with the Resveratrol concept. I felt that was very original, very nature-related. I'm a genuine person – I will never promote something I don't believe in."
The Untitled Superman/Batman movie is scheduled to fly into theaters in May 2016. As you bide your time waiting for Gal to suit up as Wonder Woman, you can have fun watching her slink around in this sultry-yet-amusing ad for Vine Vera below:
