He was a huge Hollywood icon who helped calm her nerves.
“I remember talking to Francis Ford Coppola, and asking him, ‘So how does it feel to be a national treasure? “, She told writer Hannah Jackson.
Coppola is best known for his The Godfather trilogy.
‘He said, ‘You know, something? I’m always filled with doubts. I’m always afraid that they won’t like it. I just follow my heart and go into it humbly. I think it was one of the biggest lessons.
She added: “I’m sitting with legend Francis Ford Coppola, and he talks about his humility and his insecurity.” I was like, “Okay, I can be insecure all the time.” ‘
Her next film is Heart Of Stone in which she also acts and produces with her husband Jaron Versano.
“With Wonder Woman, we really succeeded in proving that as long as the story is universal, it’s good,” she shared.
“I felt like there was room for a women’s action movie that would be for everyone, but more gritty and raw and grounded, rather than a polished superhero movie.

“Usually as an actor you get the script and you can discuss it with your filmmaker, but that’s kind of it. In a way, it’s super easy; you don’t have to worry about nothing. But there is something so challenging and exciting about creating something from scratch.
She likes her character to be imperfect.
“I had already done and loved making the superhero of it all, and I wanted to show a real person.
“I wanted to create a woman who learned to do everything on her own. It can never be an open book; she can never completely trust anyone.
“And that’s also part of the reason why I love Tom Harper, our director, because I remember watching Wild Rose with Jessie Buckley. It’s a small story, but he managed to craft it. in a way that was super character-driven. For me, it was more important to bring in a director who cares about emotional performance and story, rather than how the action looks.
And she enjoys working with her spouse.
‘Jaron and I were always on the same page. He comes from a business background, and we had a great opportunity when he sold all his [real estate] portfolio in Tel Aviv.
“Either he was going to continue in real estate or he was coming to work with me, and I was like, ‘Let’s work together,’ because he was the missing piece. Jaron has an entrepreneurial spirit and who else can care of my interests better than my life partner.

“We wanted it to be thrilling and exciting and people to be on the edge of their seat, not just a story where you can tell what the ending will be,” Gal said.
“So that’s a tough question for me to answer in terms of inspiration, because we tried not to take too much from others.”
“We did a big big movie like the Mission Impossible and Bond movies. We shot in five different locations. It was important to us that most of everything we could have done for real, we did for real, as far as acting goes. But we really tried to make an original piece, and I hope that’s how it is.
