EXCLUSIVE: Gal Gadot on Jewish Identity, American Films and Representing Israel in Hollywood (INTERVIEW)

Gal Gadot is arguably Israel’s second hottest export at the moment. The former Miss Israel 2004 and Miss Universe contestant has a starring role in the most recent film from the Fast and the Furious Franchise and is one of the faces of Israel’s largest clothing brands, Castro. Now she’s teaming up with Vine Vera skin care products,which incorporates the breakthrough ingredient Resveratrol, which she tells The Algemeiner is  “a new innovative discovery which helps slow down the aging process by 20 years.”

The Algemeiner spoke to Gadot via email.

The Algemeiner:  How does it feel to represent Israel in Hollywood?

Gal Gadot: I often get asked this question; I have much love for Israel. It is a place that warms my heart, it is my home. However, I don’t feel like I represent Israel in Hollywood, I represent myself. I am not an Israeli ambassador yet.

A: Do you feel any added pressure, considering Israel’s reputation in the world, to represent it in a certain light?

GG: When it comes to Israel there is a lot of misconception. Some people still think that the Israelis ride around on camels. It is important for me to show Israel on its true side as a positive, pluralistic country. Israel is full of interesting culture and liberal people. Israel is a beautiful place with lots of heart and meaning. I am proud to call it my home.

A:   Any projects in the works?

GG: Yes, I have many projects on the table. I will decide very soon which ones I want to focus my time and energy on.

A:  Do you plan to focus on American films or Israeli?

GG: Both. Although Israeli films do not have a big budget like American, their artistic creation is much deeper. In American films, the budget is grand and you can have more “action.” I enjoy making both types of films.

A:    What’s been the biggest thrill working on the Fast and Furious films? Biggest surprise or letdown?

GG: When you read an action script it is really hard to imagine how the film is going to look like. Words like “car racing” and “boom” are often described in the script and not even in your wildest imagination can you visualize the end result. When I saw the movie put together for the first time at the London premiere I was blown away. It was truly exceptional.

A:   What advice would you give to a young Israeli girl who wants to follow in your footsteps?

GG: There is no right way. The process is very individual and personal for every person. My only advice would be is to be persistent and never give up.

A: What does Jewish identity mean to you?

GG: To me the Jewish identity means family, the holidays, the traditions, and home.

A:    What would be your dream film to act in?

GG: My dream film to act in would have 3 great things: script, director, and an awesome cast.

A:   Have you ever experienced hostility or prejudice because of your roots?

GG: No, not while working, I have been always treated with respect and welcomed.

A:  Why are you and Vine Vera a good fit?

GG: I am a firm believer of having beautiful skin the natural way. That’s why Vine Vera and I are a good fit. Vine Vera is all about enhancing the natural beauty of your skin without using any needles, surgery, or harsh chemicals. I could see the benefits Vine Vera products had to offer almost immediately. The way my skin looks and feels is very important to me. Vine Vera helps me achieve a radiant glow.
