After getting married, Yaron noticed they had to travel a lot while Gal filmed Fast and Furious 4. This frequent travel inspired him to create The Varsano Hotel.
“We wanted to feel at home, which is when we discovered these apartments within a hotel in Los Angeles. It became the inspiration for Yaron’s hotel, The Varsano,” she explained to Totally Jewish in 2011.
“I think that Yaron and I make a really good team. I understand his career and he understands mine. We help each other progress in all areas of life. We’re both very career-driven.”
He also built luxury suites in Tel Aviv with his brother. In 2015, they sold his luxury suites to a Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich for $26 million.
Their Loving Relationship
Gal and Yaron’s love story is as charming as Gal herself. Gal was first introduced to Yaron by a mutual friend in Tel Aviv. During the first time they met, Gal initially tried to deny her feelings because she thought she was too young.
However, Gal eventually learned that Yaron was interested immediately. In fact, Yaron told Gal that he was serious on only their second date!

Yaron loves Gal’s strength and beauty. As a result, he is always supportive of her and her career.
While Gal was panicking about work after their first child, Versano told her, “Gal, think about what kind of role model you want to be. If you want to show Alma that she can follow her dreams, that’s what you should do. We will figure out the logistics.”

Gal Gadot may have acquired supernatural powers on the big screen after landing the Wonder Woman role, but in real life, the gorgeous gal has the power to make Jimmy Kimmel blush with just one question.
In March 2016, Gal arrived at the ABC Studio for her guest appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”
The statuesque beauty arrived in a green ribbed bodycon dress from Altuzarra, which she wore with a pair of Casadei “Blade” pumps in nude.

It’s pretty rare to catch Jimmy Kimmel off guard but Gal Gadot was able to do it with just one question: “What do you think of my breasts?”
She asked him the question because some comic fans had criticized her cup size.

“They look great. Both of them,” he responded. The host was able to make light of the situation but not before wiping sweat from his forehead and admitting that the question made him blush. Watch the hilarious clip below:
