When it was announced that Fast & Furious actress Gal Gadot would be starring as Wonder Woman in several upcoming DC films, fans of the beloved character were quick to criticize the decision.
But the online hate had nothing to do with Gadot’s acting abilities. Fans complained that she was too skinny to play the character, and that her boobs were not big enough. And while that might have scared some people away from the role, Gadot is not letting the criticism get her down.
In fact, she brushed off the negative comments with a fine display of humor. During a recent interview with Robot Underdog, the 29-year-old actress had this to say…
“They said that I was too skinny and my boobs were too small… When I was younger I would take criticism really hard. But now it mostly amuses me. The true amazons had one boob so it wouldn’t bother them in their archery. So it’s not going to be like real amazons. We always try to make everyone happy but we can’t.”
Good for her. That’s the correct way to respond to silly comments. I think some of these fans are a little too passionate about the characters. They have developed their own version of how the real life character should look, and if the actress or actor picked for the role doesn’t match the image in their head, they get a little crazy.
Anyway, you can catch Gadot’s Wonder Woman in the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. It’s scheduled for a March 25, 2016 release date. And then she gets her own film in 2017, followed by Justice League Part One.
