Like the rest of us, it's shaping up to be an interesting year for Gal Gadot.

The Israeli superstar who catapulted to fame when she landed the iconic role of Wonder Woman was meant to have a massive 2020. Not only is she celebrating her 35th birthday on April 30, 2020, but the highly-anticipated sequel Wonder Woman 1984 was due to hit theaters this summer with a Netflix film co-starring Ryan Reynolds and Dwayne Johnson was in the midst of filming. 

And then coronavirus struck. 

Suddenly, all of Gal's projects were put on hold and pushed off schedule, Red Notice, the Netflix film, went into hiatus, and her parents back in Israel weren't able to travel to Los Angeles for a long-planned Passover visit meant to double as a celebration of their own big birthdays. (60!) "Of course I miss my family," she told Vogue in a May 2020 cover story, "but the biggest priority for all of us is to stay home, not get it, and not give it to other people. With all the sadness and all the big . . . missing that I feel, that's the only thing we can do right now."

"Obviously the circumstances are horrible and frightening, but we're home and we're trying to make the best of it—to enjoy the quality time," she told the publication. "It's so surreal. I've never been through times like these. But I'm also full of hope for when it will be behind us."

While celebrating her birthday will be obviously a bit different this year, we thought we'd do our part to honor her by sharing with you all 35 of the most fascinating facts from a life well-lived.
