After packing on 17 pounds of “all muscle” to play Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, she told Glamour that she prefers being strong over thin. “I feel so much better now. When you feel strong, it changes everything — your posture, the way you walk. I look at photos from five years ago and think, Whoa, I was too skinny. It’s not cool.”

She Prioritizes Wellness

 

“Wellness is such an essential part of my life because the better I feel, the better I look, the better I am,” Gal explained to Shape. Meditation is a practice that helps her get her zen on. She likes using the Headspace app. “It’s quick, it’s easy to use, and it really helps me feel present,” she said. “That and getting enough quality sleep are the keys for me.”
