In order to spread positivity and inspire people, Gal Gadot teamed up with many A-list celebrities and sang a rendition of John Lennon’s Imagine. Gal Gadot’s Imagine featured celebrities like Jamie Dornan, Zoe Kravitz, Natalie Portman, Will Ferrell, Kristen Wiig, James Marsden, and Sarah Silverman. In an Instagram post, Gadot shared the video with her followers and wrote:

“Hey guys. Day six in self-quarantine and I’ve gotta say that these past few days got me feeling a bit philosophical. This virus had affected the entire world, everyone. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you’re from, we’re all in this together. I ran into this video of this Italian guy playing the trumpet on his balcony to all the other people who are locked inside their homes and he was playing Imagine and there was something so powerful and pure about this video, and it goes like this…”

However, people did not find the video inspirational and it got major backlash

While some found it cringe-worthy, others thought there were other ways to help. Some people gave examples of celebrities who are donating money and helping medical workers.

Meanwhile, others criticized it and made sarcastic comments.

One person termed it the worst thing ever.

Now Jamie Dornan has come forward and defended Gal Gadot’s Imagine

While speaking on the podcast, Tea With Me, Jamie Dornan shared his experience of being on the video. According to him, Gal Gadot’s Imagine was in good intentions and she was trying to do a good thing. However, he was recruited by Kristeen Wiig. While talking about it, he said:

“Kristen and I did a movie together last summer that’s meant to be coming out on July 31 but who knows what will happen. We got on brilliantly. I would do anything for her – that’s how highly I think of her. I was the biggest fan of her before anyway. Not being on social media, I wasn’t aware of the reaction – but was made aware by mates.”

Furthermore, he said:

“I literally did mine in the toilet of my house. Quite clearly, some people had escaped to their second home. There’s too much acreage in the background, too many beautiful trees swaying in the background, clearly in front of an ocean, that sort of craic. I was quite aware that whenever I was doing it, to make it normal.”

No matter what Dornan says, it was definitely unnecessary and felt out of place.
