Netflix’s spy action thriller Heart of Stone also features Jamie Dornan and Alia Bhatt alongside Gal Gadot. The film got mixed to negative reviews from the critics.

In an interview with The Sun, Gadot revealed that she incurred bruises on her legs and back while filming the action sequences for the movie. The Justice League actress recalled an incident when she was out with her daughters in a summer dress, entirely unaware of the visible bruises, and people were staring at her. The Flash actress told The Sun:

“I had plenty of bruises. I remember one Sunday I was walking with the girls in the park in London and someone looked at me weird. I was wearing a summer dress, oblivious to the fact my legs and back were completely bruised. I was with my daughters and people were looking at me like something was off.”

Gadot also revealed that she sustained injuries to her neck and back discs due to the intense training and filming for her physically demanding role. She dismisses it as just part of the job description.
