Gal Gadot Height Weight Bra Size Age Biography Family Wiki Net Worth, Affairs, Marriage & much more. Gal Gadot-Varsano (born 30 April 1985) is an Israeli actress and model. At age 18, she was crowned Miss Israel 2004. She then served two years in the Israel Defense Forces as a combat fitness instructor, whereafter she began studying at IDC Herzliya while building her modeling and acting careers.
Gadot’s first international film role came as Gisele Yashar in Fast & Furious (2009), a role she reprised in several subsequent installments of the film franchise. She went on to achieve global stardom for portraying Wonder Woman in the DC Extended Universe, including in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) and Wonder Woman (2017). She has since starred in the Netflix action-comedy film Red Notice (2021) and the mystery film Death on the Nile (2022).
Dubbed the “biggest Israeli superstar” by local media outlets, Gadot was included on the list of the 100 most influential people in the world by Time in 2018, and has placed twice in annual rankings of the world’s highest-paid actresses.
Gadot was born on 30 April 1985 in Petah Tikva, Israel, where she first lived. She was later raised in the city of Rosh HaAyin. In Hebrew, her first name means “wave” and her surname means “riverbanks”. Her parents are Irit (née Weiss), a physical education teacher, and Michael Gadot, an engineer; they Hebraized their surname from “Greenstein” to “Gadot” prior to her birth. She has a younger sister named Dana. Gadot has stated that she was brought up in a “very Jewish, Israeli family environment,” and is of Ashkenazi Jewish descent (Polish-Jewish, Austrian-Jewish, German-Jewish, and Czech-Jewish). Her father is a sixth-generation sabra. Gadot’s maternal grandparents were born in 20th-century Europe; her grandfather, who was imprisoned in the Auschwitz concentration camp during the German occupation of Czechoslovakia, survived the Holocaust, while her grandmother managed to escape the continent before the outbreak of World War II.
Growing up in Israel, Gadot learned and danced jazz and hip-hop for 12 years, and her first jobs were babysitting and working at a local Burger King. She graduated from Begin High School in Rosh HaAyin, majoring in biology. As Jewish high schools in Israel often take their sophomores on trips to Holocaust memorial sites, Gadot went to Poland to experience the Nazi concentration camps of Auschwitz and Majdanek first-hand. About the experience, she reminisced: “I stood there on top of a mountain of ashes. I, an entitled child, felt the suffering the Muselmann experienced back then. When it was time to give my speech at the memorial ceremony, my eyes filled up with tears, and I could not control the shivering. I returned home more mature and cried with my grandfather about that, coming a full circle from his childhood to mine.”
Gadot entered the Miss Israel competition at age 18 under the impression that it would be a fun experience, and stated in a Glamour interview: “I never thought I would win.” At age 20, she began her mandatory two years of military service in the Israel Defense Forces, enlisting as a combat fitness instructor. She says that her military background helped her to win the role of Gisele in the 2009 film Fast & Furious, stating: “I think the main reason was that the director Justin Lin really liked that I was in the military, and he wanted to use my knowledge of weapons.” After her military service, Gadot studied law at IDC Herzliya in Herzliya, Israel.
Gadot married Israeli real estate developer Yaron “Jaron” Varsano in 2008. They have three daughters, one born in 2011, another in 2017 and the third in 2021. The two formed their own film-television production company, Pilot Wave, in 2019. Gadot and Varsano owned a boutique hotel in Tel Aviv, Israel, which she helped run, that eventually was sold to Roman Abramovich in 2015 for $26 million.
Gadot is a black belt in both karate and krav maga and an avid martial artist. She served as a trainer and combat instructor for the IDF. Her martial arts helped land her the role of Wonder Woman.
During the 2014 Gaza War, Gadot posted on Facebook a picture of herself and her daughter praying in front of Shabbat candles in support of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), accompanied by a comment that quickly accumulated over 200,000 likes as well as more than 15,000 comments of both support and criticism:
I am sending my love and prayers to my fellow Israeli citizens. Especially to all the boys and girls who are risking their lives protecting my country against the horrific acts conducted by Hamas, who are hiding like cowards behind women and children…We shall overcome!!! #weareright #freegazafromhamas #stopterror #coexistance #loveidf
During the 2021 Israel–Palestine crisis, Gadot called for peace between the two territories in a statement that drew backlash for expressing support for Israel and referring to the Palestinians as “neighbors” rather than by name.
