Wonder Woman is by far the biggest role of Gal Gadot’s young career.
The summer blockbuster has already grossed over $300 million since opening just over a week ago, but it’s a role the Israeli model and actress has long been prepping for. She served two years in the Israeli Defense Force and competed in big time beauty pageants, a combination that seems perfect for playing a beautiful, ass-kicking princess.
But after she landed the part, she worked out as hard as she ever has and the YouTube video above gives a glimpse into what that training entailed.
We’d be remiss if we didn’t also give you a look at the results of those grueling workouts. The casting director no doubt hit the mark on this one.
