Who Is Gal Gadot
Gal Gadot is a supermodel and actress who was catapulted into stardom after starring the the billion dollar Fast & Furious franchise. From there she earned several more high profile roles, not just because of her beauty, but because of her experience as a fitness and combat instructor, and her expert knowledge of law. On top of her well rounded film career, the actress is also the brand ambassador for several companies such as Miss Sixty, Captain Morgan, and Vine Vera skincare. Gadot’s most successful movies include Fast & Furious 6, Wonder Woman, and The Justice League, and she is currently listed as one of the 100 most influential people in the world according to Time magazine.
As of 2020, Gal Gadot has a net worth of $22 million dollars.
How Did Gal Gadot Get So Rich?
It may come as a surprise, but Gadot’s salary for Wonder Woman was as little as $300,000. This caused controversy because most male actors playing superheroes often make tens of millions of dollars. It is even more daunting when the film was one of Warner Bros’ biggest successes in years, making over $800 million. However, her salary for the yet to be released second instalment, Wonder Woman 1984, saw her salary grow to a massive $10 million, which is more than a 3000% increase on the original movie!
Aside from her acting salaries, Gadot has an almost endless list of endorsement deals. The actress has led international campaigns for Miss Sixty, Huawei, Captain Morgan, Gucci, Vine Vera skincare, and Jaguar Cars, to name a few. She has also been the brand ambassador for Gucci Bamboo perfume, and most recently she was named as the new celebrity endorser of Smartwater, filling the boots of Jennifer Aniston who had the role for 12 years. It is reported that Gadot has made more than $10 million from brand endorsements alone. When it comes to modelling, Gadot continues to pose for magazines including Glamour, Entertainment Weekly, FHM, and others, and her annual salary for modelling is reported to be almost $2.5 million.
Why Is She So Famous?
Gadot is not only a former model, appearing in magazines and modelling for fashion brands, but she won the beauty pageant for Miss Israel and even competed for Miss Universe in 2004. However, it wasn’t long until the model would set her sights on more than just the universe; the film industry. Though she gained small roles here and there, they were nothing more than bit parts where she was used as only a pretty face, but her life changed when she was cast in Fast & Furious.
With the movie being a semi reboot of the franchise, which had the intention of recapturing the hearts and minds of fans that the studio had lost with The Fast & The Furious: Tokyo Drift, Gadot knew that the was a ton of potential that came with the role. As the fourth entry in the series went back to the franchise’s roots by pairing together Vin Diesel and Paul Walker once more, it was a huge financial success that led to several more sequels. Gadot was along for the ride as she earned bigger role more screen time with each consecutive release. Though she was killed off in Fast & Furious 6, she had a major role in three of the movies, became a favorite character amongst fans of the series, and grew her profile exponentially as each film made hundreds of millions of dollars. The series has become a multi billion dollar franchise, and Gadot had a hand in making that happen.
Though she was killed off, Gadot landed on her feet as she jumped from one billion dollar franchise to another, only this one she would build from the ground up. Zack Snyder cast Gadot as Wonder Woman for the DC Cinematic Universe, but fans were first disappointed as Wonder Woman is supposed to be brawn, and Gadot was incredibly skinny at the time. However, Gadot hit the gym and bulked up massively, surprising everybody except herself. The actress has starred in four movies as Wonder Women, including Batman vs. Superman, The Justice League, and her solo movie, Wonder Woman.
What Makes Gadot So Successful?
After the model was crowned Miss Israel and entered in to Miss Universe at the young age of 18, Gadot spent two whole years as a fitness and combat readiness instructor for the Israel Defense Forces. Thanks to this, she often performs her own stunts and understands stunt coordination much better than most other actors, which is a director’s dream. With this, she also has an eagerness and a readiness to learn, as Gadot prepared for the role of Wonder Woman in Batman vs. Superman by training in swordsmanship, Kung Fu, kickboxing, and Brazilian jiu-jitsu. And it’s thanks to this intense training that made her a stand out in the movie, as her training was clearly well represented on-screen.
The actress has also turned to producing, a smart move that actors often take in their mid-30’s to have more control over their appearances. Last year she formed the production company Pilot Wave with her husband, and it will be producing an AppleTV+ series about Hedy Lamarr, to which Gadot will also be starring. Gadot is evolving with the industry, as she has the foresight to work not only with huge movie studios, but with streaming services too. She is not only working with AppleTV+, but also with Netflix on the action comedy Red Notice, co-starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Ryan Reynolds.
Thanks to intense preparation and a strict regimen for some of Hollywood’s most hands-on performances, Gadot has been able to stay at the top of the Hollywood food chain and ear leading roles in two billion-dollar franchises. The Wonder Woman now has an estimated net worth of $20 million, and with the upcoming release of Wonder Woman 1984 and several other high profile movies, that number will likely skyrocket. Later on this year, the actress will star in Red Notice and Death on the Nile, an adaptation of an Agatha Christie novel of the same name.
