Marry/Date/Friend: Gal Gadot vs Melissa Benoist vs Zoe Saldana

11.30.2016by: Cherry Liquor

I misinterpreted your enthusiasm for the three Latinas I featured last week, believing that because JLo posts get a lot of shares that you guys somehow were fond of her, but alas... such was not the case, with several not even wanting to commit to a friend status with Jenny from the block. And while there was a lone person who believed that Sofia Vergara was a better long term partner, the majority of you wanted to put a ring on Salma Hayek instead.

When I compile these match-ups, I try to go for ladies with similarities, usually in age or status, so that the choices don't feel too difficult to make. Will that be the case with these three superheroines? Let's see!

Marry: Your forever gal, for better or worse.

Date: Your temporary gal, to have fun with but eventually walk away from.

Friend: Your best buddy gal, with whom you have all the laughs but none of the "benefits."

Gal Gadot


Up-and-Coming - Other than the FAST & FURIOUS franchise, most of the acting work that Gal had completed prior to landing the coveted role of Wonder Woman was limited to sexy chick parts, giving her plenty of room to make her own mark as Diana without too much baggage coming into play. This can be the case for her romances as well.

That Accent - The web was buzzing as to whether Wonder Woman was going to have an accent, a silly question if you pause to consider that a GREEK goddess would sound like an American. Love it or hate it for Diana, I think Gal's Israeli accent is the sexiest thing about her.

Badass Factor - I'm not just referring to the fact that Gal is bringing it when it comes to Wonder Woman's fierce fighting style - I want the fact that she served her mandated time in the Israeli Army for 2 years instead of using a bullshit marriage (*cough*Bar Refaeli*cough*) or other evasion tactics to get out of her country's duty. Then she jumped right back into modeling and acting. That's badass.


DC World - While the movies are raking in the money, I think everyone can agree that none of us agree as to the quality of the films and having to go to every opening with Gal might be tiresome.

Modelesque Form - At 5'10", she's not that giant of a lady, but it might be an obstacle for you shorter dudes. That and her usually model-skinny body might not be the soft place you want to land when in bed.

Up-and-Coming - To be striving for a bigger and brighter star in Hollywood means you're putting in a lot of time, so Gadot wouldn't be as available to you as someone with a more solidified career.


 If I'm being totally honest with you, I personally don't see any of these women as marriage material in my own eyes, but Gal comes closest. But considering that she has a fun and sparkling attitude, is currently pregnant but doesn't look it at all, and has access to some of the coolest people in Hollywood simply by association with her big role, I'm going with marry here.

Melissa Benoist


About those Fappening Pics - I know we're supposed to recognize that these women's privacy was violated and that we should never, ever look at them, the fact that Benoist was one of the few leaked who wasn't just nude but actively engaged in sex in the pictures is kind of a turn-on.

Cheerful & Spunky - I like that Melissa always seems so happy to be where she's at, whether it's a red carpet event or a fan promotion such as Comic Con. Her big smiles and happy demeanor never come off as forced.

Career Stability - Let's face it - transitioning SuperGirl from CBS to the CW was the smartest option out there. If left on the network for elderly crime drama lovers, she would have been lucky to get 3 seasons at best. Over at the CW, shows are given all the time in the world to find their feet. Those dudes on Supernatural can vouch for that.


About those Fappening Pics - I am finding that a lot of traits that come off as positive can also play on the negative side - you know she's never going to be able to escape people bringing those pics up. Case in point... I myself can't let it go. (Yes, they're that hot.)

Lack of Range - I don't see Melissa as being able to be more than just the cutesy, spunky SuperGirl that she is, which will limit her roles once she's aged out of being Kal-El's cousin. It'll be great for TV roles, but I doubt she'll translate well into top tier movies.

Up & Coming - Melissa definitely is putting in the hours of someone who is trying to achieve a bigger, brighter star. Which all adds up to lonely nights alone when she's off making deals and shaking hands.


She's just a little too chipper for me to see a long-term commitment with, being that I have an aversion to those who can't wallow and grouse on occasion. I couldn't put her in the friendzone either because, well, yeah, she's a sexy thing who likes to get freaky, so...

Zoe Saldana


A-lister status - She's slowed down her workload since becoming a mom but Zoe Saldana is the lady that big time directors call when they're looking for a tough chick who can really emote. This means all of the top roles, the lushest castmates to rub elbows with and the coolest on location sites to visit.

Financially Stabile - With a $14-16 million net worth, you're not going to be hurting for cash. And because she's also one of the vocal supporters of equality in the workplace, it means she's always going to be striving for those fat paychecks that her male counterparts make.

Funny - When asked what it was like to be in 3 top franchises (STAR TREK, AVATAR and the Marvel Universe's GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY), Saldana commented that, "My balls are pretty big." That's one way to describe it. For every serious face she makes while in character, Zoe equally dishes out the goofy off camera, which is sublimely sexy.


Too thin - The healthiest that I ever remember seeing Zoe look was when she was pregnant with twins. (After that, DRUMLINE.) With a background in ballet, it's not unusual for a woman like Zoe to get far too skinny, which just isn't appealing in the bedroom.

Occasional Diva Temperament - While on one hand I want to applaud her for speaking out against behind-the-scenes politics when referring to her time on the set of the first PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN, there's another part of me that's irritated that she took offense to not being treated the same as the top stars of the film. When you're working your way up, you gotta pay your dues. It's the same in any career, darling.

Workaholic - I did mention that I noticed her workload has tapered off in the past few years but being involved with so many different franchises means more than just her time on set, it's all of the promotional work and red carpet appearances as well. Some love that stuff, others (like myself) need downtime to decompress.


I want to be Zoe Saldana's friend because I am in no way suited to be thick-skinned or badass enough to be her romantic counterpart. I like that she's fun and foul-mouthed, that she can provide access to hanging with celebs such as Chris Pratt (and Karl Urban, who might not be an official A-lister but damn does he look like the most excellent drinking buddy) and has the means with which to hang in style. Plus, she's definitely the person you want around for longer than a fling, even if you can't do the heavy lifting of a serious romance.

Now, let's hear your choices!
