Gal Gadot admits she "couldn't breathe" when she first put her Wonder Woman outfit on as it was so tight

Gal Gadot "couldn't breathe" when she first put her Wonder Woman outfit on.

The 32-year-old actress couldn't believe how tight her outfit was when she first put it on that she decided to hit the gym to make it a little more comfortable.

She said: "I couldn't breathe when I first tried the costume on, it was so tight. So I went to the gym, tried it on again and it felt great, a much better fitting."

However, her plan didn't quite work as the costume department then decided to make it tighter, although she did eventually convince them that she would need it a little roomier whilst shooting the film.

She added: "So they made it tighter. I made it very clear that I needed to have some oxygen going through my body to shoot the movie. We adjusted the costume and I wore it every single day, and we shot over 117 days. The new version was great. I can even sleep in it. It's like pyjamas."

And the 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' star admits it was tough training for the role.

She told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: "I am quite sporty but this is another level. Wonder Woman is the ­epitome of female strength so there couldn't be any shortcuts. If I wasn't filming I went into a tent on set and had to train. When you add into the mix that we shot in England in middle of winter ... Crawling through the mud in a tiny skirt is harder than you'd think.

"But I stopped being too skinny and the torture was worth it in the end. I felt like I was a little girl, ­looking up at Mount Kilimanjaro and thinking every day, 'How the f*** am I going to climb the entire way up?' Slowly but surely, and with the right team, I did it.There was so much physically demanding content every day. It was pathetic how I was really tired and wanting to come up with excuses. I couldn't even do one pull-up when I started. So if I can do it."
