Green goddess: Gal Gadot has carved out an enviable career for herself in Hollywood with the hit films Fast & Furious, Wonder Woman and Red Notice. But the 38-year-old still feels as if she is not a fit in Hollywood, even admitting that she suffers from Imposter Syndrome, the condition of feeling anxious despite being high-performing

Gal Gadot, popularly known as the Green goddess of Hollywood, has achieved great success in the industry with blockbuster movies like Fast & Furious, Wonder Woman and Red Notice. Despite her accomplishments, the 38-year-old actress admits to feeling like an outsider in Hollywood and struggles with Imposter Syndrome, a condition characterized by anxiety despite being highly talented and successful.

Getting real: This week the Israeli star talked her insecurities with L'Officiel magazine while posing for glamorous photos

In a recent interview with L’Officiel magazine, the Israeli actress opened up about her insecurities while posing for glamorous photos. A Hollywood icon helped her calm her nerves. She recalled speaking to Francis Ford Coppola and asked him how it felt to be a national treasure. He responded by saying that he is always filled with doubts and afraid that people won’t like his work. He follows his heart and stays humble. This was a valuable lesson for the Israeli actress. Despite being in the presence of a legend, she realized that it’s okay to feel insecure sometimes. Her upcoming movie, Heart Of Stone, is one that she is starring in and producing with her husband. She believes that as long as a story is universal, it can appeal to everyone. She wanted to create a female-protagonist action movie that would be gritty, raw, and grounded instead of a polished superhero movie.

Funny feel: 'It’s funny, I always feel like I have this impostor syndrome, because I feel so lucky and I’m so happy that I get to do what I really, really, really love,' noted the brunette beauty

Humorous sensation: “It’s quite amusing, I often experience this impostor syndrome where I feel like a fraud because I’m incredibly fortunate and over the moon that I can pursue my true passion,” expressed the dark-haired lovely lady.

The Hollywood legend confessed that she often feels nervous about how her audience will receive her work. While working on a project, actors usually only have the script to discuss with the filmmaker, making it an easy process, but creating something from scratch is much more exciting and stimulating. She finds joy in portraying characters with flaws and wanted to show a real person rather than another superhero. Her character is someone who has learned to do everything by herself and cannot trust anyone fully. The director Tom Harper was chosen for his focus on emotional performances and storytelling, rather than just action sequences. The actress also enjoys working with her spouse, who has a business background that complements hers. When her husband sold his real estate portfolio in Tel Aviv, they decided to work together because he was the missing piece of the puzzle and no one could take better care of her interests than her life partner.

Will they like it? 'There’s never a moment when I’m like, “They’re gonna love this,”' shared the successful actress

The accomplished actress expressed that she never feels certain if her work will be appreciated by the audience. She states, “I never have a moment where I think to myself, ‘This is something they’ll adore.'”

Coppola set her right: It was a massive Hollywood icon who helped calm her nerves. 'I remember speaking to Francis Ford Coppola, and I asked him, “So how does it feel to be a national treasure?”' she said to writer Hannah Jackson

Coppola helped ease her nerves, as the renowned Hollywood icon provided support during a conversation where she asked about his feelings on being considered a national treasure. Gal hopes that the audience will be thrilled with the film and on the edge of their seats, as they strived to make an original piece of work with action shot in five different locations. Filming took place in Iceland, Morocco, Lisbon, London, and Italy in the Alps, and while each location was special, Gal particularly enjoyed filming in Lisbon for its people, food, culture, and good energy.

He helped: Coppola is best known for his The Godfather trilogy. 'He said, “You know, something? I’m always filled with doubts. I’m always afraid they’re not going to like it. I just follow my heart and I come into it humble.” I think this was one of the biggest lessons'

Coppola, who is famous for directing The Godfather trilogy, shared a valuable lesson that he learned. He admitted that he often experiences self-doubt and worries about whether or not people will like his work. However, he follows his heart and approaches each project with humility. This was a significant lesson for the person he helped.

The Godfather director: She added, 'I’m sitting with the legend Francis Ford Coppola, and he’s talking about how humble and insecure he can get. I was like, “Okay, I can be insecure all the time”'; seen in 2022

During a 2022 interview, the renowned director Francis Ford Coppola confided in the interviewee about his own struggles with humility and insecurity. The interviewee, who later landed a role as the villain in Disney’s Snow White, found inspiration in his candidness and related to his feelings of self-doubt. Playing the first evil villain in Disney history was a thrilling and transformative experience for her. She embraced the opportunity to explore her theatrical, dark side and immerse herself in the larger-than-life world of the character. The experience was akin to doing theater, where everything is bigger and more dramatic. Even after filming wrapped, she found it difficult to shake off the character’s persona. The photoshoot accompanying the interview was done by Celeste Sloman and styled by Cristina Ehrlich.
