Gal Gadot: I'm good, how are you? Kjersti Flaa: Nice to see you again.
Gadot: Good to see you, too. Flaa: I met you for, um...
Gadot: "Keeping Up with the Joneses," maybe? Flaa: Yes!
Gadot: Wow, I'm SHOCKED I remember that.
Flaa: And the thing is, when we met then, you were like, "I met you before."
And then I was like, when did I meet you before?
And it was for like, 'Fast and Furious,' like a LONG time ago.
Gadot: Wow. So, see, you have -- Flaa: You must have a really... super brain --
Gadot: No, I don't! That's why I'm like, "Ooh! How could that be?"
Not at all. I have the worst memory. I'm like a fish.
Especially with people. I can remember faces, but I will never...
It's just, you know, you have a lot of presence.
Flaa: And I think I saw in the bathroom at the Golden Globes. Were you there?
Gadot: Yeah. Flaa: Okay.
Gadot: [Laughs] You see? And that I didn't remember.
It was out of context. That's probably why.
Flaa: How are you? Are you feeling okay?
Gadot: I threw my back out, but I'm good.
Flaa: Jesus. Gadot: Ehh. What can you do?
Flaa: No more corset, then.
Gadot: No more horseback riding...?
Flaa: Cor-- No, corsets.
Gadot: Oh, no more corsets. Yeah, but I didn't -- I think it's from the pregnancy.
Gadot: You know? And then I just did one movement that wasn't good, like, two days ago, and then -- [snaps]
Flaa: Oh, two days ago. Gadot: Yeah. Oh no, it's fresh.
Flaa: Bad timing. Oh.
Anyway, so, we have to talk about your action figure. 'Cause I just saw it out there, like this little --
How -- What does that make you feel like? When you see that the first time, you're like...
Gadot: Weird. I think that I'm like, "Oh, wow," but then I don't really understand that it's me there.
You know what I mean? I have this buffer zone between seeing that it's me
and really get that this is my figure over there.
So it's good. So I don't pay too much attention to it. I just think it's cute and I move on.
Flaa: How are you, kind of like --
I mean, there's such a big fanbase out there for these kinds of movies.
Flaa: Has it kind of sunk in yet, what you're about to -- do?
Gadot: Nope. Do, or like, experience?
Flaa: Yeah, when it's coming out, you know. How crazy people are gonna be about this.
Gadot: Yeah. I have no idea. I just -- you know, I'm just gonna play it by ear.
And, uh, go with the flow...
I don't think this is something that you can actually get ready for.
You know, I'm used to paparazzi, and I'm used to having people wanting, taking pictures with me,
but I think that once the movie is out,
you know, and knowing how much people care so much for this character,
it's gonna be more... more intense,
but it's nothing that I can't, you know, get myself ready for.
Flaa: We have to talk a little more about what you're wearing in it.
Flaa: I mean, that outfit looks so painful. Was it?
Gadot: It was actually not-- not bad at all.
It was very adjust-- It was uncomfortable when I was shooting 'Batman vs. Superman,'
but I was hardly wearing the costume. I wore it maybe for ten days of shooting.
In this one, you know, we were shooting the movie for six months, six days a week.
So it was every day, almost.
Um, so it was adjusted to my actual size,
and it was from different-- I had seven different, um, costumes, from seven different, uh, fabrics,
so -- and seven different weights.
So it was, it was really not that bad. It was just cold.
The problem was that it was cold and we were shooting in the winter. In London.
Which was kind of challenging, but we did it.
Flaa: But your physicality, too, is amazing, and --
Gadot: Thank you.
Flaa: I mean, you look so strong.
Gadot: Thank you. I -- I --
Flaa: Have you always been so strong? 'Cause I've read that you've been in the military --
Gadot: Yeah, I've been in the military, but I was never a fighter, or anything like that.
But I think that you can't fake power. And you can't fake strength.
Especially in such a character, that it's all about her being the greatest warrior of all times.
And I was very lucky to be working with people who are super talented and knowledgeable
about body and how to make the body strong, and "all-mighty," almost.
Um, and it's great. That's part of my job, is that I need to be in a great shape.
Uh, so as exhausting as it was, I'm the type of person who always tries to look at the half-full glass,
and eventually I enjoyed it.
And, I loved it.
Flaa: So what do you think, now, for girls all over the world. They're gonna have, like, a new role model.
Flaa: What does that -- What do you think they will expect of the role model? What did you put into her?
Gadot: I wanted her to be, um... relatable...
uh, 'cause at the end of the day, she, she's a goddess.
None of us is a goddess. Although you look like a goddess.
Flaa: [laughing] I was just going to say that.
Gadot: But, uh, but we're not.
Uh, and for me, it was really important to show her flaws.
And that she's not perfect, and she has her moments as well.
So she's the strongest warrior ever, but at the same time, she can be naive. And confused.
But confident. But vulnerable. And confused.
You know, all different sides. She's multi-faced. Just like we are.
'Cause we're not always in control. And we're not always in our element.
Um, and I think that that's what makes this character so relatable, and also interesting.
Because she is -- she's not perfect.
And it's okay.
Flaa: Well, thank you so much.
Gadot: That's it? Flaa: It was so good to see you again.
Gadot: Thank you so much. Flaa: I hope your back feels better.
Gadot: It will be.
Just rest. It will be in like two months, or so...
