Gal Gadot Was 5 months Pregnant In ‘Wonder Woman’ And We Have No Words
DC Entertainment Inc

Anyone who was #blessed enough to see the new “Wonder Woman” movie over the weekend knows this to be true — Gal Gadot, the movie’s titular star, is irrefutably a badass. Those fight scenes! That fierce athleticism! Gadot thoroughly proved herself to be worthy of the comic heroine’s bulletproof bracelets.

Now, we know she’s maybe even more of a wonder woman than the one we see onscreen. According to Entertainment Weekly, Gadot was pregnant with her second child during much of the filming of the DC Entertainment box-office hit.

When reshoots of some key scenes had to be done in November of last year, Gadot was by then five months pregnant, and her baby bump was no longer inconspicuous. The movie’s costume department had to cut out a portion of Wonder Woman’s costume over Gadot’s stomach and replace it with green fabric, so that the bump could later be edited out using CGI.

“On close-up I looked very much like Wonder Woman,” the 31-year-old actress told EW. “On wide shots I looked very funny, like Wonder Woman pregnant with Kermit the Frog.”

One of the scenes that director Patty Jenkins (yup, that’s right, a female director — why is everything about this movie so perfect?) particularly wanted reshot in November showed Gadot & Co. walking onto the frontlines of World War I. Jenkins specifically wanted “some brutality” added to the scene, she told The Hollywood Reporter.

“Now, at least we will be able to tell her (new) daughter Maya that she’s in her mom’s stomach right then, in the middle of that battle scene,” Jenkins said.

And on that note, we conclude that Hollywood has officially reached peak woman-power perfection.
