Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman was inspired by Princess Diana.

The actress, who has portrayed the DC Comics heroine since 2017, revealed that both she and “Wonder Woman” director Patty Jenkins saw similarities between the character and the beloved royal, who died in 1997.

“I remember watching a documentary about Princess Diana and there was a part where they said she was full of compassion and always cared for the people and that was like, ‘Ding, ding, ding,’ that should be the Wonder Woman we have,” Gadot said during a virtual awards season chat for Vanity Fair on Tuesday.

Coincidentally, Wonder Woman’s real name is Diana Prince.

Gadot, 35, said that when portraying the superhero on screen, she wanted to show fans a character who was both inspiring and relatable — characteristics that the philanthropic “People’s Princess” embodied.

“… How can you connect to a goddess that’s super strong and has it all and [is] super perfect?” Gadot said of Wonder Woman during the Vanity Fair Cocktail Hour Live! event. “I wanted to show her vulnerabilities and heart.”

Off-screen, Gadot is expecting her third child with husband Yaron Varsano. The Israeli actress is currently in her third trimester of pregnancy, and said that she’s “healthy” and feeling “grateful” during this time.

She shared the news with fans last month by posting a baby bump photo to Instagram.

She and Varsano are parents to daughters Alma, 9, and Maya, 3.
