Gal Gadot is no doubt one of the biggest stars around. Since making her big-screen debut as the iconic Gisele in 2009’s Fast & Furious She’s made herself into a household name. While you may know much about her onscreen roles, how much do you know about her love life? Here are 9 things to know about Gal Gadot’s relationship with her husband.
1. They’ve been married for 13 years and been together For 15 Year
Per Gadot’s recollection, they met in 2006 in Israel and became an item soon afterward. By the fall of 2008, the couple were married.
2. Jaron Varsano is 10 years older than Gal Gadot
Gadot was born in 1985 and Versano in 1975. When they met, Gadot was in her early 20s and Versano in his early 30s, which Gadot credits as being a reason that Versano was able to be more serious and forward-thinking about their relationship from the very beginning.
3. They met via mutual friends who had brought them to a yoga retreat
In a March 2016 interview with Glamour, while promoting Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Gadot explained their meeting: “We met nearly 10 years ago through mutual friends at this very strange party in the Israeli desert. It was all about yoga, chakras, and eating healthy—we didn’t exactly find ourselves there, but we found each other.”
Also, while talking to Vogue, Gal Gadot’s husband Yaron Varsano described the headspace the couple was in when they met. “We were in a very unique laboratory—a desert retreat in the south of Israel. And both she and I were at a stage in our lives where we were thinking about what is love and what is a relationship. We started talking at 10 p.m., and we kissed at sunrise, and we held hands on the drive back to Tel Aviv. At that moment, we were just glued together. It was beautiful.”
4. Versano promised on their second date that he would propose within two years
According to Gadot, Yaron was quite sure about what he wanted for them in their relationship — and even further, he knew that he saw a very long future in store for them.
“He told me on our second date he was serious and wasn’t going to wait more than two years to ask me to marry him,” Gadot recalled in that same 2016 interview with Glamour. “Fast-forward two years; he proposed. We were married in 2008.”
5. The couple ran the Varsano Hotel In Tel Aviv until 2015
Until 2015, Versano, Gadot, and Yaron’s brother ran The Varsano Hotel in Tel Aviv, Israel. In 2015, however, the Versano brothers sold the hotel to billionaire and Chelsea Football Club owner Roman Abramovich for 100 million Israeli New Shekel — or, at the time, $26 million.
6. Versano was inspired to design the Hotel based on time spent in California with Gadot
Gadot explained this surprising story in a 2011 interview: “After I shot Fast Four, my husband Yaron and I started travelling back and forth from Israel and the US, which was hard.”
She continued: “We found ourselves staying in hotels all the time. 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.”
Explaining their partnership further, she went on to add, “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.”

So in 2019, Gadot and Varsano formed their own production company called Pilot Wave Motion Pictures.
9. Gal Gadot says he’s always supported her career.
“When Alma was around two, I was really anxious about how to travel with a child, moving her from one country to the other, all the different languages. It was my husband who told me: ‘Gal, think about what kind of a role model you want to be. If you want to show Alma that she can follow her dreams, that’s what you should do, and we will figure out the logistics.’”she told Glamour.
