Born and raised in Israel, Gadot, who served as a combat trainer in the Israel Defense Forces, has never been shy about expressing her love for her home country. In 2014, the then-Fast and Furious star sent her “love and prayers to my fellow Israeli citizens” on Facebook, commending the young men and women who risked their lives “protecting my country against the horrific acts conducted by Hamas.”
