Read on to see why Gal Gadot almost quit acting…
Gal Gadot recalls a time when she was considering backing away from Hollywood entirely, because being rejected from roles began to take its toll.
The 32-year-old actress opened up to ‘Sunday Today’, saying:
“I was as close as it gets [to quitting]. I never thought about becoming an actress and the opportunity kind of came my way. I started to become more curious about it, and then I fell in love with the profession – but it wasn’t like I was growing up dreaming of becoming an actress.”
The ‘Fast & Furious’ star adds:
“There’s so much no. There’s so much rejection in this world that I thought, ‘Maybe it’s not for me … Maybe I should go back to law school instead of dragging my family with me.'”
Gadot goes on to say:
“Honestly, the thing is, everything that’s happening right now is so overwhelming. I mean, all the way from Russia and Israel to here, red carpets, talking to you, wearing [great gowns]. It’s been such an amazing, crazy ride that I think I’m gonna get what’s happening only in two years from now or something.”
The ‘Keeping Up With the Joneses’ star even considered going back to her native Israel to study.
“Before I got ‘Wonder Woman’, I was thinking about never coming back to Los Angeles, [I thought I’d] stay in Israel, work as an actress here and there, go back to university and do something else.”
In additional news, Wonder Woman has been pushed up 6 weeks:
Warner Bros. has moved the film up to Nov. 1, 2019, from its previous date of Dec. 13, 2019, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The shift comes after Disney and Lucasfilm pushed back the release of Star Wars: Episode IX to Dec. 20, 2019. The Star Wars film had been set to hit theaters in May 2019, but was relocated after J.J. Abrams replaced Colin Trevorrow in the director’s chair.
Warners also announced the shift in the wake of the box-office success of Thor: Ragnarok, which debuted on Nov. 3 to franchise-best numbers, proving that early November can be a lucrative corridor for superhero fare.
