Gal: Before, I didn't have the privilege to choose what I wanted to do. I just wanted to work.
Gal: (on the death of her Fast and the Furious co-star Paul Walker) It's so sad, and when I talk about it, I still get tears in my eyes, because he was a great man. I still miss him and will miss him forever.
No matter what you do, you can never please them all. People will always have something to say because that's the way people are. And it's okay.
Gal: (on raising her daughter Alma) At the end of the day, I always tell myself that it is very, very important for me to be a good role model.
Gal: You always try to do the best, but you feel you can always be better.
Gal: (on her costar Vin Diesel) He was very professional, lovable, friendly. He's a good guy.
Gal: (on playing basketball in high school) My height is 178 cm, which explains how I got on the high school basketball team. I was not an amazing shooter, but I ripped them on defense.
Gal: (on her role in Fast and Furious movies) There aren't enough good roles for strong women. I wish we had more female writers. Most of the female characters you see in films today are "the poor heartbroken girl". That's why I'm so proud of the Fast movies. I feel like Giselle is an empowering woman.
Gal: (on her home country, Israel)I want people to have a good impression of Israel. I don't feel like I'm an ambassador for my country, but I do talk about Israel a lot - I enjoy telling people about where I come from and my religion.
Gal: (on her identity) I definitely have a strong sense of my Jewish and Israeli identity. I did my two year military service, I was brought up in a very Jewish, Israeli family environment, so of course my heritage is very important to me.
