Gal Gadot Replaces Jennifer Aniston As New Face Of Smartwater – ‘It Was A Very Easy Yes’
Gal Gadot has some exciting news! On Wednesday, January 8, the actress announced to social media that she is officially the new face of Smartwater. Prior to Gal signing onboard, Jennifer Aniston held down the role for 12 years.
While speaking with PEOPLE, Gal, 34, confessed that she signed onboard because of her love for the brand.
“I only partner with brands that I love and believe in, and Smartwater is such an innovative, iconic brand that I’ve always been using. There’s people who struggle drinking water. I’m the opposite. I wake up and I drink Smartwater. I’ve been drinking Smartwater for years when I travel and run around on sets,” she said.
Back in 2007, the Friends actress, 50, signed on as the face of the brand. A spokesperson for Smartwater informed the media outlet that there isn’t any bad blood between both parties involved. “The long-standing partnership with Jen Aniston concluded in 2019,” the spokesperson explained. “The brand is of course grateful for her involvement and will always be glad she is a friend of the brand!”
