Wonder Woman’s unstoppable box office has proven its merit to most haters, but there are still those who want to pick at dead arguments. Over the last few months, netizens have tried to create controversy out of Gal Gadot’s body hair and cleavage, but the actress is not having any of that. In a recent interview, Gadot shut down her critics with a clever serenade about Wonder Woman’s modest bust.
During an interview with Zoomin TV, the actress was asked if she was aware of Wonder Woman’s aesthetic controversies. The star admitted she didn’t even know about the shallow armpit hair spat, but she did have something to say to trolls who didn’t like Wonder Woman showing cleavage.
“The boobs are not enough / Breasts are too small,” Gadot crooned while Chris Pine applauded her. “I just think they’re just the right size.”
When Zoomin TV asked about the inane armpit hair debacle, Pine played off the controversy by poking fun at it. “I started that actually,” Pine joked. “I just think women with bare pits is just…what kind of woman is that?”
However, Gadot had something a bit more forward to say about the online squabbling. “I think women have been objectified throughout the entire history. I didn’t even know about the hairy armpits. I think it’s just one BS, and I’m not sure if I’m allowed to but who cares? I think it’s all bulls*it, and I think it has absolutely nothing to do with the character. It’s not relevant, and the people who do it, like, seriously. If you have [the] time, do something good with it,” she stressed.
Gadot is not the only Wonder Woman star to push back against complaints about the heroine’s bust. Recently, Lynda Carter issues a fiery statement about the UN’s choice to remove Wonder Woman as a representative due to her skin-baring costume.
“Well, excuse me, women have breasts!” Carter told the Daily Telegraph.
“Superman has got a big pouch in his crotch, so does Spider-Man and Green Lantern and their muscles are bulging — no one has a problem with that If they have a problem with a female who is strong, they’re missing the entire point; it’s the ultimate sexism to say because she has big breasts and a costume on, that is what you think represents her and who she is. Women do have breasts and women can defend themselves and fight back. Wonder Woman is about telling the truth.”
