Gal Gadot talks about the scandalous “Imagine” video from the beginning of the coronavirus quarantine.
As early as March, the actress launched a video featuring a chain of celebrities singing bites from John Lennon’s “Imagine” in the hope of inspiring viewers.
Gadot said she recorded it on the 6th day of her home quarantine. The video features Sarah Silverman, Mark Ruffalo, Jimmy Fallon, Will Ferrell, Maya Rudolph and others.
Shortly after it was shared, the video drew sharp criticism from viewers, who called the video “offline,” as many were ill or struggling financially while the stars proved economically secure.

“Sometimes, you know, you’re trying to do a good deed, and that’s just not the right good deed,” the 35-year-old Gadot said in an interview with Vanity Fair. “I had nothing but good intentions and it came from the best place, and I just wanted to send light and love to the world.”
The actress said she connected with several friends when she made the video, before contacting her star from “Wonder Woman 1984” and the “Saturday Night Live” scholarship Kristen Wiig.

“Kristen is like the mayor of Hollywood. Everyone loves her and she brought a lot of people to the game,” the actress recalled. “But yes, I started it and I can only say that I intended to do something good and clean and it didn’t go beyond that.”
Comedian Chris O’Dowd was also featured in the video, noting the video next to “that first wave of creative diarrhea,” which came after people were asked to stay inside.
“It was just a group of people running around thinking they had to do something when we really didn’t,” he said during a Grounded podcast. “We just had to relax and take everything.”
