Gal Gadot Wasn’t Just A Little Pregnant While Shooting ‘Wonder Woman’

Gal Gadot is practically synonymous with the name Wonder Woman and what she did in real-life during the filming of one of the world’s greatest superhero movies simply confirms how badass she truly is.

It has just been released that during the filming of some scenes in this box-office hit, Gadot was actually five months pregnant!

Mothers know that this isn’t just a little pregnant, in fact, she’s full-on carrying a sizeable baby at this point!

Her baby bump was prominent enough that the costume department cut a section out of the front of her costume and replaced it with a green cloth!

Her pregnant belly basically became a green screen that could be altered in postproduction. “On close-up I looked very much like Wonder Woman,” Gadot told Business Insider. “On wide shots I looked very funny, like Wonder Woman pregnant with Kermit the Frog.”

According to director Patty Jenkins, Gadot is the real hero:

“She’s pregnant during part of the movie, in a suit out in a field in the freezing cold in others,” she tells Entertainment Weekly .

“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.”

In March, Gadot gave birth to her second child, a daughter named Maya. She shared a heartwarming photo on Instagram of her husband Yaron Versano and their five-year-old-daughter Alma heading down the hallway with baby Maya in the buggy.

Do You Know How Your Favorite Foods Look Before They’re Picked?

We’re so used to picking up our favorite foods from the grocery store that we don’t pay much attention to where they come from. Today you can even buy fruit and herbs in packages, so it’s possible kids think that little plastic bags grow on trees.

But the truth is much, much stranger. Even some of the fruit we eat every day looks downright weird before it’s been picked or processed. Other foods are just surprising because you never would’ve guessed how they grow until you see it yourself.

See how many of these everyday foods you recognize. But be warned you may never look at breakfast the same way again!

Vanilla

The flowers are pretty, but the flavor actually comes from the dried “beans” that grow on it.

Saffron

This spice is made from tiny, dried parts of the saffron flower.

Pistachios

We know the seeds best, but they’re actually taken from the pistachio fruit.

Peanuts

Yep, they grow in the ground!

Kiwi

Cranberry

Cranberries grow on bushes, then when they’re ready to harvest the fields are flooded so they rise to the surface.

Cocoa (chocolate)

It can take as many as 20 of these pods – which are filled with smaller cocoa beans – to make just a pound of chocolate.
