Companies know that famous faces help sell their products and, these days, celebrities are supplementing their careers with product endorsements, from cars to alcohol and almost everything in between.
Gal also got in on the action and, in 2020, she became the new face of SmartWater. Jennifer Aniston had been the brand ambassador since 2008, but the baton was then passed on to Gal. For Gal, she certainly can’t go wrong by endorsing water!
Getting Behind The Camera
Gal’s big-picture mindset has not only made her a well-rounded person but has also given her an edge in the show business world. With her love for filmmaking in full bloom, Gal and Yaron decided to start their own production company. In 2019, they launched Pilot Wave Productions with the goal of selecting and telling their own stories on the big screen.
The couple released a statement about their new venture that outlined their plans to deliver unique content about interesting people with interesting stories to tell.
A New Role
Pilot Wave Productions was taking shape before 2020. Like the rest of the entertainment industry, the production company also had to place their projects on hold. One of the proposed projects coming out of Pilot Wave is a limited series for Showtime.
In it, Gal herself will portray the legendary actress and inventor Hedy Lamarr. Hedy Lamarr was a fascinating and brilliant woman who was more than just a movie star. She also assisted in the invention of an extremely complex frequency system for missiles too.
Wonder Woman And The World
Gal’s embodiment of Wonder Woman for a new generation not only bolstered her international fame but also made her a role model for young girls. In fact, it was even celebrated at the United Nations in 2016. Gal, Lynda Carter (the original Wonder Woman), along with the President of DC Entertainment Diane Nelson, and director Patty Jenkins all attended.
The women were invited to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Wonder Woman’s first appearance. At the event, Wonder Woman was named an honorary ambassador for the empowerment of women and girls. Sadly, the decision was met with protests, and the title was removed just months later.
Trying Something New
New experiences keep life challenging and fresh. From something as fun as trying a new restaurant or as thrilling as skydiving, change is necessary for growth. Gal Gadot knows this too. For her 2017 appearance on the "Tonight Show" with Jimmy Fallon, Gal admitted that she had never tried Reese’s peanut butter cup.
Fallon soon rectified the situation and presented Gal with the candy. Though it wouldn’t have been a culinary challenge, Gal took the opportunity to try something new, live, on camera, for the first time in her life.
