Who doesn’t enjoy wearing a little less while they’re relaxing? Clearly, Gal Gadot enjoys it because the star relaxed in some shorts that are plenty short recently. Thankfully for her adoring fans, she shared some images of that relaxation time on social media.
Gal Gadot posted the photos to her official Instagram account. In the two shots she’s sitting on what appears to be a pretty generously sized kitchen counter, playing with her hair with one hand. You can see the images below.
In the caption, Gal Gadot writes, “Taking it easy today before jumping into another late night shoot,” followed by a blue heart emoji. Gadot is currently shooting the upcoming spy film Heart of Stone. Most of the plot details have been kept firmly under wraps so far, though we do know the Wonder Woman star will be playing a spy in some kind of global peacekeeping organization. She will be joined by Jamie Dorman (Fifty Shades of Grey), Alia Bhatt (Gully Boy), Sophie Okonedo (Hotel Rwanda), Matthias Schweighöfer (Army of the Dead), Jing Lusi (Crazy Rich Asians), and Paul Ready (Motherland). You can see a shot from the set of Heart of Stone below.
Before beginning shooting on Heart of Stone, Gal Gadot had the pleasure of making a career first — playing her first real villain. In spite of no doubt a good number of fans who would happily declare Gal Gadot “the fairest of them all,” in Disney’s upcoming live-action remake of Snow White, Gadot will play the part of the Evil Queen. It will be interesting to see the actress many first met as a superhero play an iconic bad guy.
Some believe the new Snow White will have more villains than many of us realize. In January, Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage was quoted as criticizing the Gal Gadot film. Referring to the depictions of dwarves in the story, Dinklage called the tale the movie is based on “a f***ing backwards story.” Shortly after the comments went public, Dinklage was criticized by some little people in the entertainment industry; some of whom lamented that his comments may have taken away jobs from dwarf actors. Still others speculated that Disney likely never intended to cast little people in the movie’s dwarf roles, but that the studio would probably prefer to use digital wizardry and other moviemaking tricks to instead make “normal” sized actors to appear to be shorter. This has been the case already in several big fantasy productions, such as Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit films, as well as 2012’s Snow White and the Huntsman.
As for Gal Gadot’s most famous role, we are certain to see her again as part of the DCEU. We don’t know yet when to expect Wonder Woman 3 but it is on the way. Back in April Gadot said the script was being worked on, though she still has a number of projects to work on before then, including Cleopatra.
