This month, we have a former Miss Israel as our POP Babe but you’d probably remember her more has the long legged hottie from the Fast & Furious franchise.
Gadot was born and grew up in Rosh HaAyin, Israel. At the age of 19, she attended and won the 2004 Miss Israel competition. After winning, she traveled to Ecuador to compete in the Miss Universe pageant.
She did not place in the top 15 and returned to Israel to work as a model. She eventually made the move to Hollywood and became an actress, where she landed her breakout role as Gisele Yashar in Fast & Furious, the 4th installment of the franchise.
Did you know?
This 1.75m beauty wasn’t the first choice for Gisele in Fast & Furious. She actually beat 6 other actresses before landing the coveted role.
In 2007, she took a part in the Maxim photo shoot “Women of the Israeli army,” which focused on Israeli models who served in the Israel Defense Forces. Gadot’s photo was on the invitation to the launch party, and she featured on the cover of the New York Post. Since 2008, Gadot has been a leading model for Castro, one of the largest Israeli clothing brands.
Oh and by the way….Gadot is a mum, she and her husband welcome their baby girl in November 2011. How’s that for a modern day woman!
