Gal Gadot, who is famous for portraying Wonder Woman, recently posted a set of retro-themed swimsuit pictures on her Instagram account. The 37-year-old actress looked playful as she stuck out her tongue in one of the photos, which showcased her gorgeous figure. The black and white imagery highlights her long, slender legs in a sleek one-piece swimsuit. In the backyard setting, Gadot looks effortlessly chic with a stylish towel-wrapped updo while posing around a directors’ chair.
Gal Gadot has a lot on her plate with her upcoming movie projects. One of these is a remake of the renowned Alfred Hitchcock classic, To Catch A Thief, which was first released back in 1955. The original romantic thriller featured Cary Grant and Grace Kelly in the lead roles. Meanwhile, Gadot is also taking on another project that has links to Old Hollywood – a movie about Cleopatra, where she will be producing and starring in. However, there has been some backlash regarding Gadot’s casting as a white actress to play the role of an Egyptian queen.
An Israeli actress named Gal, who has completed her military service through the country’s enlistment, has been chosen to portray Cleopatra. Although of Greek heritage, Cleopatra has caused controversy due to the past casting of white actresses. During an interview with BBC Arabic, Gal discussed this issue and pointed out that if authenticity is the goal, it should be noted that Cleopatra was really Macedonian.
The famous movie star who co-produced the film shared that they scouted for an appropriate Macedonian actress to portray Cleopatra in their production, but their search proved futile. Nonetheless, their dedication to the character remains unwavering as they plan to honor her enduring legacy through the movie. They emphasized their intention to respect and celebrate Cleopatra’s remarkable historical significance, regardless of ethnicities, as they hold her in high regard.
Gal initiated a challenge to her fellow filmmakers, encouraging them to create their own unique interpretations of the story. She expressed her confidence that anyone can take on this task and even disclosed her plans to make her own version of it. Her excitement for the project is palpable through her words.
