Actress Gal Gadot, recently cast as Wonder Woman in “Batman vs. Superman” (or whatever-Warner-call-it; I don’t believe anything has been settled on yet?), is getting a bit of flack from chaps-in-parents-basements who say the leggy head-turner is too skinny to play the buxom comic-book heroine – in particular, fans are slamming Gadot’s lack of boobage.
The actress spoke a bit about the backlash – and boobies – while on the show Good Evening with Gai Pines (via Batman-News.com).
“Breasts … anyone can buy for 9,000 shekels and everything is fine,” she joked, saying, “Wonder Woman is Amazonian, and historically accurate Amazonian women actually had only one breast. So, if I’d really go ‘by the book’ … it’d be problematic.”
Gadot, who appeared in the last “Fast and Furious” flick alongside all those other pretty Barney’s and Betty’s, says she’s not so much concentrating on food as she is fighting-technique, in preparation for the movie.
“It’s the physical preparations that I’m starting now. A very serious training regimen – Kung Fu, kickboxing, swords, jujutsu, Brazilian…1,000 and 1 things…I’ll gain body mass.”
“Batman vs. Superman”, out 2015, will see Gadot’s Amazonian princess fighting alongside (or with?) Henry Cavill’s Superman and Christian Bale’s Batman.
