Gal Gadot responds to backlash to viral Imagine video

Gal Gadot has responded to criticism of the viral video of herself and other stars singing John Lennon’s Imagine, saying: “I had nothing but good intentions.”

In the video, which she posted on video in March at the beginning of the coronavirus crisis, the Wonder Woman star sang the intro to the 1971 classic before a host of celebrities took it in turns to sing portions of the song – including Natalie Portman, Jamie Dornan, Sia, Pedro Pascal, Zoe Kravitz, Will Ferrell and Norah Jones.

The song was widely lampooned, with Ricky Gervais branding it “awful” in an interview with the BBC, while the New York Times said it was “no heaven”.

Gadot also admitted that her frankness sometimes does not go down well in Hollywood, and said: “Sometimes it can get me in trouble.

“There is something that I’ve learned to say, which is, ‘I don’t disagree with you, but’ — so basically I’m disagreeing with you.

“So I adapted. I just came to the conclusion: I do me, you do you. I’d rather have you not liking me at this moment than not saying my truth.”
