Marie Claire recently had the wonderful opportunity to interview the ever gorgeous and dynamic Gal Gadot – who is well-known for her role in The Fast and The Furious films, and quite recently as Wonder Woman in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Here, Gal talks about Gucci’s new fragrance, her own superheroes and shares her personal beauty secrets and views of what personifies a strong and courageous woman:
What do you think embodies the Gucci woman?
I think that the Gucci woman is every woman. The Gucci Bamboo fragrance is a multi-faceted kind of perfume that makes a woman very feminine and sexy. It’s strong, but at the same time, delicate. It’s not too aggressive and it just gives out a really pleasant scent.
What do you like to do to keep yourself fit and strong for your roles?
I work out a lot. I have a personal trainer that I’m working with, Ruda Vrba. And I make sure to drink lots of water and tea and eat really healthy and clean.
Who are your superheroes in real life?
My parents. I love and adore them. They had a very big effect on my life when I was growing up and everything else.
What is your personal skincare regimen and do you have any beauty secrets?
Well, I make sure that I keep my skin really clean when I don’t have to work and wear makeup. I use the La Mer makeup remover, the oil-based one. I moisturize my face and make sure that it’s not dehydrated. And tips for makeup – I think that the only one that I have is (because of the fact that I think less is more and I don’t like to wear heavy makeup) I always mix my foundation with face lotion.
If you were only allowed to use the same three makeup products every day, what would they be?
They will have to be mascara, bronzer and foundation.
What shows do you like to watch in your free time?
My favourite series at the moment is Modern Family.
How do you handle stress at work and expectations from people around you?
I really try not to think about it. I try to focus on what matters, which is my work. When I am able to make time, I use the Headspace app for meditation purposes. And I try to put everything into perspective so I don’t have to be so stressed out.
You are a true Wonder Woman, both on film and in real life. Do you have any advice for us fellow women?
I think that every woman is a Wonder Woman, you know? Nowadays, we all have to be the best mothers and the best wives and the best daughters and the best workers. We try to fulfill our potential and have a great family life. Although this can take a lot out of us, at the end of the day, we just need to do what is good for us and relax, live a full life and follow our hearts.
Thank you so much Gal Gadot for taking the time to have this interview with us. We are truly inspired by your passion for life, courage to pursue what you love and your wonderful adventurous spirit. Thank you for inspiring us to be our very own Wonder Women.
