Gal Gadot's daughter joining the family business
Eight-year-old Alma is making her film debut this summer in the 'Angry Birds' sequel.
The next time a Hollywood producer calls Gal Gadot's house, he may not be looking for the 34-year-old Israeli actress. Instead, he may be calling for Alma, Gadot's 8-year-old daughter. She's making her film debut next month as the voice of one of the hatchlings in “The Angry Birds Movie 2."
"Looks like I’m out of the job," Gadot joked on Instagram, as she proudly shared the news.
We're assuming Alma got some advice from her mom while in the recording studio, as Gadot has previous cartoon experience. She appeared in "Ralph Breaks the Internet" as well as on an episode of "The Simpsons."
Alma isn't the only celebrity child in the movie. Faith and Sunday Urban, the daughters of Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman, also lent their voice talents to the Sony Pictures sequel, as well as the daughter of actress Viola Davis. The animated film also features Nicki Minaj, Jason Sudeikis, Maya Rudolph and Peter Dinklage, among others.
Alma seems unfazed by her mom's meteoric rise. As Gadot told Jimmy Kimmel in a 2016 appearance on his show, Alma didn't want to dress up as Wonder Woman for Halloween. She chose to be a unicorn instead. The following year, she went trick-or-treating dressed as a zombie.
Meanwhile, we're about to see a whole lot of Gadot. She's working on an action movie for Netflix called "Red Notice" with co-stars Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Ryan Reynolds. Along with Sarah Treem, a producer on "The Affair," Gadot is developing a miniseries for Showtime. It'll be about the life of Hollywood bombshell Hedy Lamarr, who is also credited with helping invent Bluetooth and Wi-Fi technology. And, of course, we can't forget about the "Wonder Woman" sequel, which is due to arrive in theaters in 2020.
But of all the roles she's played, Gadot has said that her most important is the one she plays offscreen – as a wife to Yaron Varsano, an Israeli real estate developer, and as mom to Alma and 2-year-old Maya. In an interview with Canada's Fashion Magazine, she said that while women today are expected to be the best at everything, she also believes they're more empowered. "We're also stronger, sophisticated and can achieve what we want," she added. "That's what I would like my daughter to know."
