Who would’ve thought being a comic book nerd would end up costing Jimmy Kimmel such immense mortification on live television?
Back when the action/adventure film led by Gal Gadot, Wonder Woman, was released, the Israeli actress appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live to talk about the DC movie. But during her conversation with the host, the subject ended up going so off the tangent, that not only did the Dawn of Justice star make Jimmy Kimmel blush but the latter was almost too baffled to respond to her.
While talking about her 2017 movie, Gal Gadot asked the host of the chat show what his thoughts were on her brea**s and the poor guy was so taken aback by the question that he couldn’t help but stutter to find an appropriate answer.

Gal Gadot Caught Jimmy Kimmel By Surprise With Her Bizarre Question
Gal Gadot really knows how to mess with someone.
Back when Patty Jenkins‘ Wonder Woman was released, the Justice League actress hopped onto Jimmy Kimmel Live to have a chat about it. She and Kimmel were joking about the latter featuring in one of her DC movies. Kimmel, 55, was merely fooling around with the idea of him being a potential “love interest” for Wonder Woman in her next film as he asked Gadot to just “run it by the director.”
The Death on the Nile star too seemed to be playing along with this charade, as she reassured the comedian that they were certain to find a good fit for him in the next project. And to that, Kimmel responded by pointing out how he’s aware of the importance “comic book nerds” tend to attach to “this kind of stuff,” considering he himself was one of those nerds.
But absolutely nothing could have prepared the host for what Gadot said to him after that.
When Kimmel told Gadot he’s a serious comic book nerd, she counter-questioned him, saying, “Really? What do you think about my brea**s?” “Uh, what?!” Kimmel stammered as he tried to comprehend the situation that had taken such a drastic plot twist.
Don’t worry though, Gadot had a plausible explanation to back her question up.
Gal Gadot’s Explanation Behind Asking Jimmy Kimmel About Her Brea**s
When the audience broke into an uproar of laughter and cheer, the Red Notice actress admitted that it sounded “weird” when she asked that. “No no, I’ll tell you why,” she said. “It sounds weird.” Till then though, a conspicuously bewildered Kimmel had somehow managed to find his composure and gather himself when he replied to Gadot. “They look great,” he laughed. “Yeah, both of them.”
When Kimmel admitted he was still blushing, the 37-year-old actress said she was just as flustered as she went ahead to explain that she was only joking about it. “No no, I was joking, and it might be a bad joke,” she clarified. Upon being asked why she had such a question in mind in the first place, Gadot stated that she thought Kimmel was indicating her superhero costume in the movie.
“I thought you were leading to the fact that a lot of the [comic book] fans had a lot to say about my brea**s,” Gadot remarked. Kimmel then noted that the only “issue” he had with the outfit was that Wonder Woman had a much different costume in the comic books.
The Fast & Furious star explained how her brea**s had actually been a rather important subject of discussion during the filming of Wonder Woman as compared to the superhero fans have seen in DC comics. So, that was what the whole thing was about. Either way, Gadot and Kimmel, along with the audience, ended up having a good laugh so it wasn’t all embarrassing at least.
Wonder Woman can be streamed on Netflix.
