Before becoming an actress and landing her role as Wonder Woman, Gal Gadot supported herself through modeling. Prior to that, she served as a soldier of the Israel Defense Forces for two years. Needless to say, the Israeli beauty has always been in shape. But Gal had to step up her game to achieve the action sequences necessary to bring the lasso-wielding Amazonian princess to life.
