Renowned for her portrayal of ‘Wonder Woman,’ Gal Gadot extends her heartfelt gratitude to her husband, Jaron Varsano, attributing much of her soaring success to his unwavering support. In an exclusive interview with Flaunt magazine, the 38-year-old actress reveals the pivotal role Varsano, 48, played in emboldening her pursuit of a thriving acting career.
Varsano’s influence extends beyond their personal relationship, as evidenced by their collaboration on Gadot’s latest Netflix venture, “Heart of Stone,” produced through their joint production company, Pilot Wave.

Their journey began long before Gadot’s rise to fame, with the couple’s enduring partnership taking root when they exchanged vows in 2008, forming a union characterized by a harmonious blend of ambition and grounded stability.
Reflecting on her journey, Gal Gadot eloquently shares, “He was the one to give me the courage to do it, to travel with me… He’s the dreamer — he’s the kite that will reach out to the sky, whereas I’m the root, the tree that the kite is connected to.”
The actress underscores Varsano’s profound impact, stating, “I would never be where I am without him… When success arrived, my parents — well, they never imagined [it could be like] this. So now they’re my number one fans and they’re very supportive — but it took them a bit.”
While their professional collaboration is remarkable, the couple’s responsibilities also extend to their shared journey of parenting three daughters: Alma, 11, Maya, 6, and Daniella, 2. Gadot candidly discusses the joys and intricacies of balancing her dynamic career with the demands of motherhood.

Embracing the beautiful chaos that accompanies mothering three children, Gadot acknowledges the perpetual balancing act, sharing, “Having three children is messy and chaotic in the best way possible.” The challenge of simultaneously nurturing her career and family life is one she confronts with grace and wisdom.
She reveals, “What helps me is [accepting] that I can’t be a perfectionist. I told myself that I can only do my best and that I’m being the best mother I can be… as long as I’m fulfilling myself and continuing to do what I love and not just giving up on it, then it also services them because they see a mother who is happier, who has interest in her life — and then you’re modeling that to them as well.”
The collaborative spirit that defines Gadot and Varsano’s relationship is vividly evident in their work on “Heart of Stone.” The actress emphasizes their ability to harmoniously merge their creative energies, a testament to their partnership’s resilience.
“Once we agreed to disagree, it kind of took all the tension away because he has his own point of view, I have my own, and it’s okay if we don’t think the same,” Gadot reflects.
Praising Varsano’s complementary strengths and unwavering support, Gal Gadot underscores the value of having a partner who champions her interests. Her dynamic with co-star Jamie Dornan, who shares the experience of being a parent to daughters, further illustrates the profound connections that shape her life.
Despite their initial unfamiliarity, Gadot and Dornan’s rapport was instantaneous, significantly enhancing the on-screen chemistry of their spy thriller, “Heart of Stone.”
