Gal Gadot is on the cover of the latest issue of W Magazine to promote Wonder Woman, which is due in theaters on June 2nd. Inside, Gadot talks about landing the role, and even revealed that she listened to Beyoncé to help calm her down during her audition with Zack Snyder.
“When I auditioned for Batman v Superman, I didn’t know it was for Wonder Woman,” Gadot said. “The director, Zack Snyder, asked me to do a camera test. That was torture. They were looking at six or seven girls, and we were all in separate trailers and were told to stay inside until they called us. Waiting is my enemy Number One, and I was losing my mind. So, I decided to put on Beyoncé.” Gadot smiled. “Who runs the world? Girls! I just started to dance, and I let my anxiety go. Thank you, Beyoncé!”
Gadot revealed that she auditioned to play Daniel Craig’s “Bond Girl” in 2008’s Quantum of Solace. She lost the role to Olga Kurylenko, but years later, Olga Kurylenko lost the role of Wonder Woman to Gal Gadot!
Gadot also spoke about her pregnancy and when she found out about it. “I found out I was pregnant while shooting Justice League. I had terrible migraines. I would show up in dark glasses, and they all thought I was going Hollywood, but I was only pregnant.”
Gadot also posed in a gorgeous photo shoot for W Magazine. Check out the photos by Craig McDean in the gallery below.
