She prefers to do her own stunts

When it comes to scenes that demand a physical touch, Gadot isn't one to step aside and let stunt doubles do all the work. So adamant was she about participating in the action in the "Fast and Furious" films that she made it a condition going forward.

"All of the stunts on Fast 5 and 6 I have done myself, and on Fast 6 we went crazy with the action moves," she said. "The adrenaline was just incredible and I enjoyed being able to do the stuff that in real life you can’t."
