The 'Wonder Woman' star - who has Maya, three, and Alma, eight, with her husband Yaron Varsano - feels "very connected" to her children and always speaks to them about how they are feeling.

She said: "Being a mom is the best thing I’ve ever done, the project of my life. I’m all types of moms. It depends what days you’re asking.

"I'm very connected to them and I’m very warm, and I make sure to keep the channels of communication open and we always talk about feelings and stuff like that. And then sometimes I let go and don’t interrupt them because I’ve learned when you’re too involved you can actually create problems."

And Gal admits she struggles with mom guilt but she is trying to be the "best" mom she can be for her two daughters.

She added: "I can be hysterical at times. I can be goofy. We laugh a lot. I can have a lot of patience, but then when I lose it, it’s not great.

"I think that every mom can relate to this, that once you have a baby, you get a huge sack of guilt, which is something that I’m dealing with all the time. But I realised I can only try and be the best version of a mom that I can be. So I just try to do my best and give them everything that I can."

Gal admitted she never thought she'd become an actress when she was younger as she was always encouraged to go to university and get a degree.

Speaking to the new issue of Vanity Fair magazine, she shared: "I came from a home where being an actress wasn’t even an option. I always loved the arts and I was a dancer and I loved the movies, but being an actress was never a discussion. My parents were like, 'You need to graduate university and get a degree.' Yaron was the one to say, 'You can do whatever you want to do.' He’s the one who really gave me the strength to follow this dream."
