gadotagencies must pile up at your door to sign you with them at least we
knowthat Israel models are very popular take a look at Bar Refaeli and esti Ginzburg when gall does something she usually goes for the top exactly what she did with modeling as well as a...
model at only 18 years old she won Miss Israel in 2004 and then went for Miss Universe Gaulle said in an interview that she deliberately lost the contest because she
didn't want to be Miss Universe at such a young age in the end she
didn't win but it sure helped her with the future campaigns for gucci huawei or Jaguar cars even though she
didn't continue with modeling on a more professional level we are sure she would have been an international supermodel but she's now an international actress so not that bad number three she thinks Americans are fake living most of her life in Israel with her family Gaul is more used to other kinds of interactions and cultural habits in Israel people are more real and they usually tell you if they like you or not unlike Americans that are
known to be joyful and nice only as a facade for some people that haven't been to America this might come as a surprise and the cultural shock having so many people be nice to you Goll experience this when she first came to the States and is still not 100% okay with it she prefers her home in Israel where people are genuine and don't put up masks just to get under your skin however now that she spent some more time in America and she might be spending even more perhaps she's more comfortable with this now in the end you either get used to it or you embrace it number four she plays a Wonder Woman in real life one of the acting moments that shaped and kind of relaunched her career...
was when she was cast as a Wonder Woman the movie was such a huge success and turned the whole spotlight on her now with all the Avengers x-men and Justice League heroes being constantly on the screen fans were happy to see a new face and a new hero after the movie's premiere Goll started to attend all sorts of events Comic Con and interviews where she speaks about women's empowerment and she's actually a UN women's rights ambassador another noble thing she does is that she takes the Wonder Woman costume and goes to children's hospitals to comfort them or writes them motivational messages in moments like that her gesture means the world to them and we think more actors should do just that number five her net worth is only eight million dollars we've mentioned so far a few
thingsthat make gal
gadotan a-lister in Hollywood at only 33 years old she's already a successful woman because she has a beautiful family and a blooming career she's made 8 million dollars so far and this number will grow steadily because she signed a deal for another Wonder Woman movie so you better watch out fans although she's paid only 300 thousand dollars for her staggering performance in Wonder Woman we are confident that because of the massive success the movie has attained she'll be able to negotiate a seven-figure contract for the next film although her net worth is not as big as other celebrities she's still a millionaire and her Wonder Woman role has...
massive trilogy potential spin-offs and collaborations we'll be keeping a close eye on her and her fortune number six the Muslim community is not a fan of her being such a huge star you would think that anyone in Israel would want to partner with her and be around her we bet she does have a few supporters and fans in the Middle East but as she embraced Western life and certain roles a few consequences did come with it since becoming an actress and taking the role of Wonder Woman a lot of brands piled up at gals store to make her the ambassador but only a few successfully did one of the winning brands was Revlon they've been collaborating with her without any problems until this year the brand is a well-
known supporter of women and women's rights so they wanted to award a Muslim blogger for her work and constant initiative to inspire women to express themselves with passion optimism strength and style unfortunately for them beauty blogger Imani al khattab a rejected the award and took to Instagram to explain why she mentioned that because gal
gadotis the brand's ambassador and used to serve in the Israeli army she cannot accept the award we bet no one saw that coming and probably brands will now think twice before partnering with her even though she's beyond beautiful and popular number seven she promoted an Android phone using an iPhone coming from a modeling career doing ads and sponsorships is quite normal for gal
knows how to pose what to say...
how to smile and how to emphasize a product since she's such a well-
known actress and beautiful woman all brands want to work with her so far she's done campaigns for Gucci Jaguar cars Captain Morgan rum and huawei the hand it all went well with the last one until somebody used the wrong phone and she took the fall for it go or someone from her team posted a tweet with her campaign video on Twitter but used an iPhone for it we
knowthat because it shows on the app and although the tweet was deleted very fast and reposted from an Android phone the screenshots live forever fans began calling her out for promoting a product she doesn't use but her statement was that someone from her team posted the video and they use an iPhone unlike her that doesn't it's not the end of the world and she could be right but there are other celebrities that have done the same mistake in the past so we're not 100% sure on it number eight she refused to be the host of the 2019 Eurovision contest Ezreal is facing a lot of controversies and has been at war with Palestine for years another controversy surrounding the country is whether Jerusalem is the capital city of Israel or Palestine we're not going to fully explain the problem and political issues here that are in the region but they might be the reason why gal
gadotrejected the offer to host eurovision song contest that will be held in israel in 2019 this opportunity is usually a great deal for most people but...
gadothas other commitments for 2019 already although it would mean a lot for her country and we're sure some money would be involved too so far her answer is no and we're not sure if it's because it'll be held in Jerusalem or because she really doesn't have the time for it there's definitely more to this story what do you think number nine she received swordsmanship kung-fu kickboxing capoeira and Brazilian jiu-jitsu training in preparation for Wonder Woman being an actor can be a very pleasant and challenging job to have you're always working on new projects meeting new people traveling making money and learning new skills whether it's a new language how to cook how to drive fight or handle weapons there's plenty to choose from gal
gadotwas challenged by her role as Wonder Woman she had to Train gain muscle ride a horse use a sword and learn how to scream louder she also took kung-fu lessons kickboxing capoeira and jujitsu lessons to be the perfect warrior and perform all the stunts although she served in the Israeli army for two years and has done other movies this one was special and all the months she spent training made the movie even more realistic and accurate number 10 she owned a hotel in Israel worth 26 million dollars for those of you who don't

gadotwas already pregnant with her second child Maya and had to come in five months pregnant to reshoot some scenes the director had to hide her bump with special effects and green screens so that viewers couldn't spot any differences because her body definitely wasn't looking the same they did a good job because no one noticed and we definitely have to give extra credit to...
Ghul for being a strong woman and putting in the work while pregnant because it's not easy being pregnant and hormonal and shooting an action movie number 12 she's switching the roles and will produce a movie with her husband after being in front of the camera for so many years a lot of actors begin to develop a taste for directing and writing scripts it's a very organic career path and some actors successfully did it such as Angelina Jolie or Ben Affleck in the same vein gal

knowher now so in the future we will definitely hear and see more of gal
gadotnumber 14 she always carries sweets from Israel to give around traveling is great because you get to see so many amazing new places and most importantly you get to eat new food and taste different flavors sweets and snacks do make for a great conversation starter or ice breaker because they're just like gum everyone wants one and if they're from another country even better it's common to see people that travel a lot carry around with them sweets and snacks from their country because they want to eat them or give them to others well gal
gadotis one of those people she always has Israeli sweets with her when she travels and even brought a few of them when she was invited to Jimmy Fallon's to show she introduced Fallon to milk chocolate with popping candies as one of her favorite treats from back home they're made by elite Israel's top selling candy brand and of course Jimmy tasted them live on the microphone so that viewers could hear how they pop number 15 her roommate was raped by...
her friends and she
didn't help her after the Harvey Weinstein scandal that terrified everyone more and more women were coming forward with their stories on sexual harassment rape and misconduct it's shocking how unsurprisingly often this happens and it looks like Hollywood and actors are among the predators accused of it some say that a witch-hunt has started toward celebrities and apparently even women are accused of not helping victims or turning a blind eye to it last year a story of an alleged friend and roommate of gal
gadotcame out in which she accused her of introducing her to a rapist even though she knew she was a victim of rape already while Goll was in Ireland her roommate was invited to Gaulle's male friend's house and he got her drunk and raped her when she told Gul what happened she
didn't react as expected she shamed and accused her of exposing herself and pretty much put the blame on the poor girl we of course don't
knowhow accurate this story is but it did hurt her reputation and her role model image that she's been promoting for years with one alleged rumor we're not condemning gal
gadotbecause it could easily be a misunderstanding or propaganda she's still a great girl a good actress an amazing mom she's a real Wonder Woman and needless to say the it woman of the year she does her own stunts she films while pregnant and dresses as a wonder woman to comfort sick children simply perfection but enough with phrasing...
