Gal Gadot Is The Perfect Barbie In Margot Robbie’s Eyes
Having so many famous actors in Margot Robbie’s upcoming Barbie movie, it is quite interesting to find out that Wonder Woman actress Gal Gadot was also supposed to be one of them. Robbie has revealed in multiple interviews that both she and the director of the film, Greta Gerwig, wanted Gadot to be part of this project.
“She was like, ‘All I get asked about is Barbie and I’m not even in Barbie.’ and I was like, ‘you’re our dream Barbie.’” She said, “She was our bromide for Barbie energy. Whenever we’d be like ‘What’s a Barbie like?’. Both Greta and I have had experiences where we’ve met Gal at events before we’ve known. Within two minutes makes you feel like you’re her best friend and you feel so loved and valued and also like she’s so pretty and just so nice. So we were always like, ‘I think Gal is Barbie’, someone you meet for two seconds and you’re like ‘ You’re so nice and I love you’.”
Robbie mentioned that both of them had met the actress at events and immediately thought that she was a real-life Barbie. She elaborated by saying that Gadot has the tendency of making someone feel loved and valued within the first meeting with her, a trait that Robbie and Gerwig imagine Barbie to have. They even went as far as to use the actress as the standard for ‘Barbie energy’.
