Gal Gadot isn’t taking any chances with coronavirus. The “Wonder Woman” actress has now joined the slew of celebrities sticking to the four walls of their homes – while COVID-19 has not yet seen the U.S. government enforce a full lockdown on the country, it has already seen both New York City and Los Angeles forced to close their bars and restaurants.
Gal updated her Instagram on Monday with a little love-spreading as she reminded her 36.7 million followers that self-distancing right now may well be the smartest thing you can do.
Gal’s photo showed her in the fuss-free and low-frills way that’s fast becoming her trademark. The 34-year-old former Miss Israel was in selfie mode and standing in a swish-looking walk-in closet, but the vibe was unpretentious as the actress snapped herself in a matching black pair of slouchy sweats.
Gal posed with hanging shirts behind her, a fun pair of leopard-print slippers on her feet, and zero makeup, looking fresh-faced and beautiful as she posed with her hands in the peace sign. Zero cosmetics and sweats seem to work just fine for this girl.
Gal took to her caption with more, opening with a nod to her “Wonder Woman” role.
“Staying home is my super power ✌? and yours! Please everyone take care of yourself, your loved ones and us all. This situation should not be taken lightly. The sooner we all stay home and keep ourselves from catching this Very contagious virus ? the sooner we can go back to our lives without losing lives??❤#WeAreAllOne,” Gal wrote.
The post racked up a staggering 235,000+ likes in just 22 minutes.
Comments poured in. Many wished Gal, her husband, and two girls well, with others praising the star for raising awareness – Taylor Swift has also encouraged the public to stay home.
“absolutely gal !!!!! ???????????? and i hope you can do the same for you as well, hope you’re doing safe and everything,” one fan wrote.
“Yes I agree,” another said.
Then again, others claimed that staying home just isn’t that easy.
“Some people MUST go to work (like me),” one fan wrote.
“Not all of us have that luxury. We have work,” another echoed.
Monday brought another celebrity face confirming they’ve tested positive for coronavirus. Ukrainian actress Olga Kurylenko, best known for her “Bond Girl” role in 2008 movie “Quantum of Solace” today confirmed that she has tested positive.
Also having made headlines for being carriers are 63-year-old actor Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson, plus NBA players Donovan Mitchell, Rudy Gobert, and Christian Wood.
Other celebrities urging the public to either stay home or pay attention to hand-washing have included singer Miley Cyrus and reality star Lisa Rinna.
