Wonder Woman Gal Gadot has no problem tooting her own horn, especially when she has the best of both worlds ― family and career.
Gadot recently sat down with InStyle Magazine for the February issue and opened up about why she considers herself a badass in the industry.
Gal Gadot On Family Life And Career
Gadot opened up about her notoriously private life during her sit-down with the interviewer. The DC actress has been married to her husband Jaron Varsano for 13 years, and they have three beautiful daughters, Alma, 10, Maya, 4, and Daniella, 8 months.
The “Justice League” actress revealed that she chose to keep her family, especially her daughters, away from the spotlight because she wanted to protect them. In her words:
They’re the only thing I make sure to keep as private as possible. I want them to be naive and safe and protected. I share a lot — I believe that if I went through experiences that people can relate to or learn from, great. But as far as my family goes, I’m very protective.
When asked what the word “badass” means to her, the Isreal native interpreted it as sexy, smart, confident, strong before highlighting the “most badass thing” she has done in her life and career.
The “Wonder Woman 1984” star said, “Shooting a movie while being pregnant, or when you have a baby.” Gadot explained that she usually feels like she’s flying so high when she shoots a movie.

However, all that goes away once she returns home, and her priority becomes taking care of her daughters. “It’s not about me, it’s, ‘OK, now I need to bathe Maya, feed Alma, put Daniella to bed.’ That is the badass thing I do: the juggling between my family life and my acting career.”
Gadot On The ‘Imagine’ Controversy
The 36-year-old also touched on the controversial “Imagine” issue from 2020. As you might know, Gadot, alongside other stars like Kristen Wiig, Sarah Silverman, and Lynda Carter, received backlash after a video of them singing John Lennon’s “Imagine” amid the pandemic went viral. Fans branded the group as “tone-deaf.”
Discussing the topic, Gadot accepted that the video wasn’t released at the right time. “It wasn’t the right timing, and it wasn’t the right thing. It was in poor taste. All pure intentions, but sometimes you don’t hit the bull’s-eye, right?” she explained.
However, she redeemed herself when she sang the song during her acceptance speech at the Elle Women in Hollywood.

In November, Gadot dished on her upcoming role as the evil queen in live-action production of Disney’s “Snow White.” During the premiere of “Red Notice,” she expressed her excitement at playing the villainous character, saying she couldn’t wait.
Gadot, alongside Rachel Zegler, who was announced as Snow White, have been the only confirmed cast members of the production.
