Gal Gadot Prepped For Wonder Woman Audition By Listening To Beyoncé

Wonder Woman is just around the corner and with that Warner Bros. will start to go into fifth gear promoting the film. Now, to coincide with the film's release W Magazine have made Gal Gadot the cover star for the month of May.

Gadot, speaking with the publication, talked about her role as Diana Prince. “Growing up in Israel,” she said, “I didn’t know much about Wonder Woman. But it’s like ­Superman—a household name.”

“When I auditioned for Batman v Superman, I didn’t know it was for Wonder Woman,” Gadot continued. “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!”

Initially, when the actress was cast, there was online outcry for a particular reason. “ ’Cause my boobs were too small,” Gadot explained. “Yeah—that was a big problem,” she added, laughing. “The Web really paid attention to the important side of Wonder Woman.”

Recently Gadot was pregnant and gave birth to her second daughter, Maya, who will be brought along the Wonder Woman press tour. “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.”

Patty Jenkins, the film's director, was also interviewed by the magazine. “You couldn’t have invented a more perfect ­Wonder Woman than Gal,” Jenkins said. “It sounds strange, but Gal is so clean—so pure—but it’s not for lack of wisdom or information. Like Wonder Woman, she is beautiful, kind, and strong. It’s a choice to stay so spiritually clean. Gal instinctively understands that choice.”

“Trump or no Trump,” she continued, “Wonder Woman stands for beauty, truth, love, and goodness. She understands that finding the truth is complicated, but she will always be kind. There’s something very reassuring about that, especially now.”

Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.

Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Robin Wright as General Antiope, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Lucy Davis as Etta Candy, David Thewlis, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Ewen Bremner and Saïd Taghmaoui. The film is directed by Patty Jenkins and written by Patty Jenkins, Allan Heinberg, and Geoff Johns, story by Zack Snyder & Allan Heinberg.

Wonder Woman is slated for release on June 2, 2017.
