How Gal Gadot Feels About How Everyone Else Feels About Wonder Woman's Breasts

With Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice comic book fans finally got to see the most famous woman in the medium up on the big screen. She got to kick some serious ass, yet apparently many fans were not so much interested in that as they were in...other things. Gal Gadot is spending an awful lot of time talking about her breasts while doing interviews for the new film. And she’s pretty much tired of it.

While it seems like a million years ago now, there was a time when there was concern about how Gal Gadot would look as Wonder Woman. Even we asked the question at one point. However, while some people tried to look at the issue in a broad sense, others had a very focused physical concern: her chest. Conan O’Brien brought up the question to the actress herself. She did admit that her breasts were all wrong based on the mythology, because she has one too many "hearts" as she calls them.

Yes, there were some people who had a lot to say about my hearts. At the end of the day you can’t please them all, and I completely understand that. And if you want to be original to the story, the Amazons used to have only one breast, because it was in the way with the [bow and arrow].

But in reality, the complaint by some is that her breasts are not large enough. If we’re comparing her strictly to her comic book alter ego, then we’re forced to admit that’s the case. However, comic book women are drawn with some of the most outrageous proportions possible. We’re not entirely certain a real life Wonder Woman would be able to stand upright without serious back problems.

Gal Gadot takes it all in stride. As she tells, she just doesn’t pay attention to the critiques because they’re all over the place and that way lies madness.

It was funny for me that it’s such an amazing character and all they have to critique is her bust. Me, as a person, I try not to pay too much attention to all the noise that comes when I get cast for something. Even if it’s good or even if it’s bad – because one day it’s good and the other day it’s bad, so I’d rather not pay attention to either.

Maybe, in the end, it’s a good thing? Maybe her Wonder Woman was so great that this is literally the only thing people can find to complain about? We can hope.
