Strong role model: Gal said she gets teary eyed when she sees the opening scene of 1984 where actress Lilly Aspell, 12, plays the child version of Wonder Woman and is in a physical contest.

In her opinion, seeing something visually is crucial for inspiring dreams about becoming someone or something. Gal also talked about the impact of her role as Wonder Woman, especially on her daughter Alma, who she showed the movie to. Although Alma was thrilled, she had trouble separating the fact that her mother was fighting villains on screen, and they had to avoid the scary parts. Lastly, Gal addressed the criticism she faced for her version of John Lennon’s Imagine during her self-isolation, which many people found out of touch with their privileged lifestyles.

Kids: She spoke about the impact of playing Wonder Woman, including on her own daughter.

In March, Gadot appeared in a video with other actresses like Natalie Portman and Amy Adams, which received criticism from Twitter users for being “out of touch.” However, the initial aim behind the video was positive, as Gadot explained.
