This is How Gal Gadot Hid Her Five-Month Baby Bump Throughout “Wonderwoman”
Now, it’s no secret that Gal Gadot was carrying her second daughter when she filmed Wonder Woman. But, she hid the fact from the production team and her co-stars at the time. Talking with Marie Claire for its June 2017 cover story, Gadot said that she hid the fact because she didn’t want to be treated differently on the set.
She also shared how she spent time vomiting in corners and coping with hormone-induced migraines. Gadot added:
“I gutted it out and started to come to set with sunglasses. I had this jug of water with huge pieces of ginger. One of the producers kept on asking. ‘Why are you drinking that potato water?’ They thought I’d gone Hollywood.”
Meanwhile, when Gadot returned to complete the reshoots, her baby bump was clearly visible and the CGI had to be implemented to make it off the screen.
Gadot told Rolling Stone she and the filmmakers worked hard to hid her baby bump. She said,
“We cut open the costume and had this green screen on my stomach. It was funny as hell-Wonder Woman with a bump.”
