Alona Tal Talks Richard Gere and Her Post-Baby Red Carpet Life at Norman Premiere

At the premiere for “Norman” starring Richard Gere New You spoke with Alona Tal and get take on this much-anticipated new movie. “The director of this movie is Joseph Cedar, one of the most respected directors that came out of Israel. We’ve known about this movie for quite some time and we’ve known that he was directing it and we were very excited so when I get the opportunity to actually support a fellow creator from Israel, it’s always a pleasure and a privilege.” When asked what she thinks of Richard Gere taking on a different role, Alona had nothing but good things to say about the actor, “I’m excited. I like it when actors take on roles that are not necessarily what people are used to seeing them in, but Richard Gere is Richard Gere so I wouldn’t expect anything less from someone of his caliber especially since he’s been doing this for so long it’s fitting. It’s exciting for me as a fellow actor to watch him in anything really. I don’t think it’s really that much of a stretch. I think he’s a very talented actor and I think taking on different characters and different walks of life is just what we do.” Oh her own projects, Alona, has this to say, “I’m currently on Hand of God on Amazon, season 2 just came out March 10th. I actually had a baby 5 weeks ago and I want to know what everyone thinks of season 2 because I haven’t even had the chance to watch it!” Working and looking fabulous on the carpet? We had to ask her how she did it! “Working out until around 8 months, basically until I was told to stop and then eating well, drinking lots of water, vegetables… even though now it’s difficult because you’re not supposed to eat a lot of vegetables when you’re breast feeding, apparently it makes your baby gassy. Nobody wants a colicky baby! I’m vegetarian normally so this is very challenging. I box, but I don’t get hit back obviously. Strength training, conditioning, varying it up. Some yoga was important, especially when you’re pregnant. But moving around, staying active, actually helped me find my center of gravity because it was ever changing.” She advises others looking for a health tip to, “eat unprocessed food. You are what you eat and I believe that to be very true. And to go easy on the alcohol, that’ll catch up to you real quick.”
