Gal Gadot Was Nervous For Her Dancing Scene With Dwayne Johnson Given His Size

Some fans might assume that Gadot was most nervous for her kissing scene alongside Johnson, but that wasn't the case. Instead, Gadot worried about her dancing scene alongside DJ, given the size of her fellow actor. Gadot revealed that Johnson reassured her during the scene, and he was spot on. Gadot couldn't believe how mobile the actor was with his dancing skills.

Gal recalls, "I'll tell you the truth. I was a bit nervous at the beginning just because, you know DJ is a giant man and I have feet down there, so I wasn't sure what was going to happen. And I kept telling DJ, we're going to practice, we're going to rehearse."

She continues, "And he was super cool, kept on calming me down and saying, don't worry, this is going to be great. And of course, that just made me more nervous. But then he showed up, and this guy is a freaking ballerina. I don't know how it works with like physics rules and all that, but he had, he's so talented and such a good dancer. And it was so much fun to shoot the scene with you."

Hardcore fans of The Rock are well aware that the actor is agile, especially given his days in the ring with WWE. It was on full display with Gadot, however, in a much different way outside the squared circle.
