Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot reflected the criticism she received for the video cover of the John Lennon classic song “Imagine”, saying the 2020 rendition was in “poor taste”.
Beginning with the COVID-19-forced lockdown in the US, Godot teamed up with many celebrities for the 1971 track cover, including actors Natalie Portman, Amy Adams, Will Ferrell, Pedro Pascal and Mark Ruffalo.
In a two-minute-long video, the men sang lines from the song in hopes of inspiring viewers amid the pandemic, but many Hollywood stars accused it of being too sensitive and “out of touch” with the real world.
In a new interview for the February issue of InStyle, Gal Gadot That said, releasing a video is not the right thing to do.
“The pandemic was similar in Europe and Israel before it came here (to the US). I saw where everything was going. But (video) is ahead. This is not the right time and this is not the right thing to do. It tastes bad, ”the 36-year-old Israeli actor added.
This is not the first time Gadot has discussed the controversy surrounding his “Imagine” cover.
In October 2020, she told Vanity Fair Magazine via video that she “wants to send light and love to the world.”
“I can only say to do good and pure work, and it will not be surpassed,” the “Red Notice” actor said.
