‘Wonder Woman’ star Gal Gadot reflected on the reviews she received for her video cover of John Lennon’s classic song ‘Imagine’, saying the 2020 interpretation was of ‘ bad taste ”.
At the start of the forced COVID-19 lockdown in the United States, Gadot partnered with a host of celebrities, including actors Natalie Portman, Amy Adams, Will Ferrell, Pedro Pascal and Mark Ruffalo, for the cover of the 1971 track. .
The two-minute video featured these personalities singing lines from the song in hopes of inspiring viewers amid the pandemic, but many criticized the Hollywood stars for their insensitivity and “disconnection” from the real world. .
In a new interview for the February issue of InStyle, Gadot said posting the video was not the right thing to do at the time.
“The pandemic was in Europe and Israel before it came here (to the United States) in the same way. I could see where everything was going. But (the video) was premature. Now was not the right time, and it was not the right thing. It was in bad taste, ” the 36-year-old Israeli actor added.
This is not the first time that Gadot has discussed the controversy surrounding his ‘Imagine’ cover.
In October 2020, she told Vanity Fair magazine that she ‘wanted to send light and love to the world’ through video.
“I can only say that I wanted to do something good and pure, and it didn’t transcend,” the “Red Notice” actor said.
