Ben Affleck is no stranger to the talk show set. In fact, he and his best bud Matt Damon are featured in regular running gags on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’. But despite having starred in the multiple million dollar ‘Fast & Furious’ franchise, Affleck’s co-star Gal Gadot is a newcomer when it comes to such high-profile promotions. Since she is making her debut as Wonder Woman, the most iconic female super hero in the world, making her first feature film appearance in next week’s ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice’, Gadot is now in the big leagues and made her first visit to ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’.
When making talk show appearances, stars are saddled with the burden of discussing their movies and drumming up interest, while at the same time, not revealing TOO much. Perhaps its a good thing that Gadot is such a fresh face to the general public, meaning that there’s a lot more fodder to discuss in her personal life than film spoilers.
But during her appearance on Kimmel’s chat show, the conversation turned to the subject of ‘Batman V Superman’. At first, Gadot admitted that “The comic book fans were very interested in my breasts,” in reference to online chatter that the Israeli-born actor was too flat-chested to play the voluptuous comic book character. But maybe she actually wasn’t small enough in that department.
As Gadot told Kimmell:
“I walked into this huge hangar filled with images of me as Wonder Woman, which was surreal… Then they got me into the fitting room and tried on the costume. And I was so happy and so grateful for being there and doing this role that I didn’t say anything about the fact it was so tight, I literally could not breathe.”
Gadot and Kimmel talked about the discrepancy between her revealing costume and those worn by her completely covered-up male counterparts, Affleck as Batman and Henry Cavill as Superman.

As a bonus, Gadot also appeared on ‘Ellen’ this week and here is the clip she brought with her:
Are you ready for the DC heroes to take their place alongside those from Marvel as the box office giants they were meant to be?
If so, the wait is almost over. ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ directed by Zack Snyder and starring Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter, and Jesse Eisenberg hits theaters on March 25, 2016.
