Badass, thy name is Gal.
This is Gal Gadot. She’s the star of Wonder Woman and a more-or-less perfect human being. You probably already knew both of those things.

But here’s an impressive little fact you might have missed: While shooting some parts of Wonder Woman, Gal Gadot was FIVE MONTHS PREGNANT.
YUP. When Wonder Woman went into reshoots last winter, ya gal Gal was just a few months away from giving birth to her daughter, Maya.
According to the film's director, Patty Jenkins, Gadot didn't miss a beat: “She’s pregnant during part of the movie, in a suit out in a field in the freezing cold in others,” Jenkins told Entertainment Weekly back in April. “There are so many things we asked her to do: Now do it on one foot. Now shout while you’re doing it. Now it’s raining in the freezing cold and you’ve lost your voice, go. Everyday it was a hilarious gauntlet and she would do it.”
As for her pregnant belly? Nothing a little ~Hollywood magic~ couldn’t hide. The production team cut a large hole in the front of her costume, and covered her stomach with a bright green cloth. Basically, they turned her belly into a green screen.
