Unfortunately, haters are gonna hate. No matter how well Wonder Woman performs, some critics simply won’t stop complaining about irrelevant things like armpit hair and breast size. Well, Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot and Chris Pine aren’t having it.
In an interview with Zoomin.TV, the two make light of the trolls and critics and the absurd things they spend their time focusing on. In fact, Gal Gadot is so over the controversy surrounding the size of her breasts that she had a little song to share.
“The boobs are not enough / Breasts are too small. I just think they’re just the right size.”
As Pine says, “Great song. It’s an incredible single.”
The interview then turned to the armpit hair (or lack thereof) controversy, which Gadot wasn’t aware of. Building steam, Pine claims he started the controversy and Gadot remarks that he has too much time on his hands.
Joking aside, Gadot grew a bit serious for a moment to speak about the scrutiny women face in regard to their bodies and had a simple yet powerful message for all the haters.
“I think women have been objectified throughout the entire history. I didn’t even know about the hairy armpits. I think it’s all one big BS, and I’m not sure if I’m allowed to but who cares? I think it’s all bulls*it, and I think it has absolutely nothing to do with the character. It’s not relevant, and the people who do it, like, seriously. Do something good. If you have time, do something good.”

7 Things Marvel Can Learn From ‘Wonder Woman’
Ever since 2008, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been shaping the way that Superhero films are being made.

While the previous DC Extended Universe films have had little critical success, Wonder Woman was released to big box office and high critical reception.
