Gal Gadot is your brand new Glamour cover star, and in the December issue, the Wonder Woman actress shockingly admits that she ‘nearly quit acting’. She told Glamour:
“Before I got Wonder Woman, I was thinking about never coming back to Los Angeles, [I thought I’d] stay in Israel, work as an actress here and there, go back to university and do something else. Because there had been so many ‘no’s. You go to the audition and you have a callback, then another callback and then a camera set-up, and people are telling you your life will change if you get this part. And then you don’t get it. I reached a place where I didn’t want to do that anymore. My husband has a lot of work in Tel Aviv, and we had a daughter, so taking them to LA to fish for work put a lot of pressure on me. I was like, ‘Why am I doing this?’ Hearing no, over and over, I was thinking, ‘What am I good for?’ And that’s when I got Wonder Woman.”
The 32-year-old, who shares two children with husband Yaron Versano, also revealed to Glamour that she felt relief when her law career didn’t pan out the way she had intended it to.
“You convince yourself to do these things… ‘I’ll be a lawyer so I can make peace and people will be able to reach agreements.’Whereas, in real life, lawyers deal with conflict non-stop. Conflicts are not good for me. I’m all about harmony and Zen. So I’m happy it didn’t work out. I would be the sh*ttiest lawyer.”
