Do not read the script, unlimited number of shots
According to Screen Rant, a mandatory provision from Warner Bros. is that Gal Gadot does not know the content in advance because of the security factor. She also has to agree to accept the return, play additional scenes as required, unlimited times until the film comes out. In 2017, when director Zack Snyder decided to leave the "Justice League" film crew because his daughter committed suicide, the studio invited Joss Whedon to replace. The new director asked to change many scenes. Some staff members revealed that Gal Gadot and the Justice League star had to play 80 new script pages, not in the original plan.
This law also made it difficult for Gal Gadot to take on other projects over the years. Since first accepting the role in the project Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016), she has hardly participated in films other than the DC movie universe. Only when Wonder Woman 1984 was completed, the actress began to accept a number of projects such as Death on the Nile, Red Notice scheduled to debut at the end of the year.
Unlike heroes like Batman, Wonder Woman does not wear a mask when fighting. This caused the crew to minimize the use of stuntmen for Gal Gadot. The actress suffered many injuries because of the action scenes during the filming of the DC movies. At the end of 2019, she said she had a serious spinal injury after filming Wonder Woman 1984.
A strict diet and a dense workout schedule
Wonder Woman series is famous for many beautiful action scenes, requiring real combat skills with bare hands and weapons. With limited stunt users, Gal Gadot was forced to spend months training his fighting skills with coaches. She mainly practices using swords and shields, in order to portray the Amazon warrior character in the most realistic way.
In addition to martial arts, Gal Gadot is also required to keep a balanced body during the film in the DC movie universe. The previous two movies - Justice League and Wonder Woman - were a big challenge for Gal Gadot.
She discovered she was pregnant while filming some Justice League scenes and was five months pregnant while filming Wonder Woman. Initially, she hid her pregnancy to avoid disturbing the crew. However, as the belly gradually revealed, the crew began to restrict action scenes and use CGI post-production technology.
According to the New York Times, the actress often starts her day with omelette eggs, served with bread and fruit or as a nutritional smoothie. About 40% of her diet is vegetables. Gal Gadot often choose fish or chicken to get more protein needed for the body. The coaches asked her to drink about 4 liters of water a day.
Minh Tinh identifies himself as a foodie, especially greasy dishes such as hamburgers, chips. Every time he finishes a movie, Gal Gadot always treats himself with a few comfortable meals to make up for the previous time.
Become a real-life hero
Besides the difficulties, Gal Gadot is very proud to be the Wonder Woman incarnation on the screen. However, Warner Bros. also requires the actress to become a real-life heroine, becoming a bridge to inspire women around the world. According to TheGamer, a contract term requires Gal Gadot to become a model for women, not to perform real-life actions affecting Wonder Woman's image.
The star actively participates in gender equality activities in Hollywood. In 2016, the United Nations invited Gal Gadot and the character Wonder Woman as honorary ambassadors for the organization's activities to protect women. She is also active on social networks, always bringing a strong, cheerful, energetic and inspired image to transmit energy and inspiration to fans around the globe.
