Though Gal has endured much criticism for some of her views, her resilience as a public figure can be applauded. One of the projects that Pilot Wave will begin is a film adaptation of the controversial Hebrew novel “Borderlife.” The plot centers on an illicit romance between a Jewish woman and a Palestinian man.
The novel was met with disturbing remarks over its plot when it was released in 2014. Borderline was banned from schools for a time, so its adaptation will most likely bring potential problems for Pilot Wave Productions. But, knowing the drama she has navigated before, Gal can handle it with grace.
Social Media Woes
Countless celebrities have been harshly criticized for their publicly shared views, and Gal Gadot is no exception. When she paid tribute to the remarkable Dr. Stephen Hawking, users came to scrutinize her post.
In an attempt to memorialize the physicist, Gal said Hawking was now ‘free from any physical constraints’ of the amyotrophic lateral sclerosis with which he lived for so many decades. Again, her well-meaning post drew intense criticism from activists. Those who fight for the rights of disabled people labeled the post “ableist.”
Troubles With The Israeli Government
Gal certainly made a name for herself in the U.S. but in her home country of Israel, she also has many proud fans. Despite the support from Israelis, Gal has run into trouble with the Israeli government. It began when she supported the political stance of her fellow Israeli, Rotem Sela.
Sela, who is also an actress and TV host, engaged in a public disagreement with the government with certain Israeli policies. She then took to social media to speak up about equal rights, with Gal supporting her.
Dipping Into Disney
Along with endorsement deals, it's not uncommon for even the most seasoned celebrities to also lend their voices in animated films. Gal also decided to try something new and break into the animation world.
She was chosen to be the voice of Shank in the popular animated movie "Ralph Breaks the Internet." She also lent her voice to an episode of "The Simpsons" when she starred as an animated version of herself.
Given her work ethic, Gal is not opposed to taking on smaller projects, whether it is voicing an animated character, endorsing a product, or even briefly appearing in a music video.
That’s right, fans may have missed it, but Gal made an appearance in Maroon 5’s 2018 music video with Cardi B called "Girls Like You." In the video, she also appeared alongside comedian Sarah Silverman, Olympian Aly Raisman, Ellen DeGeneres, Jennifer Lopez, and more.
