Gal Gadot, known around the world for her starring role as Wonder Woman, turns 38 today. Let’s take a look at this real-world superhero, and wish her a happy birthday!
Gal Gadot’s LA Home
Gal Gadot first came to fame in the Fast and the Furious franchise, but cemented her stardom as Wonder Woman in the DC Extended Universe. With a net worth of over $30 million, she’s bought some amazing real estate, including this mansion in the LA hills, which set her back around $6.8 million in 2016.
The 4,000 square foot home has plenty of both privacy and beauty. In fact, the stunning outdoor pool rests on the edge of a cliff. At least one bathroom and bedroom have floor to ceiling windows to allow them to enjoy amazing unobstructed views.
She, her husband, and three kids spend some of their time here, but also live a quiet life back in her home country of Israel.
Like any self-respecting celebrity, Gal purchased beach-side property in exclusive Malibu. The penthouse condo is a perfect getaway spot for the family of five. She spent $5 million on the 2,000 square foot home, which was built in 1984. She bought it from a fellow beauty queen, Thai philanthropist and former Miss Universe, Bui Simon.
Like her other LA-area home, the condo is known for its privacy, as part of a gated community, and is considered to be in one of the most desirable and in-demand areas of Malibu. These features certainly make the $5 million price tag more understandable!
Filming Location for Wonder Woman, Villa Cimbrone, Ravello, Italy
The opening scenes of Wonder Woman take place in a mythical paradise of Amazon women, left to protect the world from the god of war, Ares. The scenes on the island of Theymscira, where the women live and train for battle was filmed at and around the Villa Cimbrone on the beautiful Amalfi coast in Italy.
The role was perfect for Gal,with her Mediterranean beauty and years of military and combat fighting training made her a real-life Amazon warrior.
Lynda Carter’s Maryland Residence
While Gal is this generation’s Wonder Woman, she’s not the first to star in the role. Another beauty queen, 1972’s Miss World, Lynda was cast as the star on the television show Wonder Woman, which ran for three years. After the show wrapped, it went into syndication for years, keeping Lynda and her on-screen persona in the cultural eye for decades.
She and her second husband, Robert Altman, bought a home outside Washington, D.C. shortly before the birth of their son. The 20,000 square foot home has a gorgeous landscaped yard, including a huge pool, hot tub, tennis court, and even a waterfall!
Gal Gadot really is Wonder Woman, with an amazing acting career, beautiful family, and growing real estate ventures. On this date, when she takes a moment to celebrate her birthday, and life, we all hope she celebrates with her loved ones and looks forward to her best year yet! Happy Birthday, Gal!
