Jamie Dornan defended Gal Gadot’s “trustworthy” Imagine video which featured several celebrities singing the John Lennon hit to cheer up during the coronavirus lockdown.
The 34-year-old Wonder Woman actress recruited stars from the list, including Jamie, Will Ferrell, Mark Ruffalo, Kristen Wiig and Amy Adams to participate in the video deemed disconnected by social media users.
Speaking on the Tea With Me podcast, 37-year-old Jamie admitted he was strung in the video by his friend and Barb and Star Go to Vista co-star Del Kristen Wiig, but insisted the fact that Gal “was trying to do a good thing”.

He said: ‘Kristen and I made a film together last summer which was supposed to be released on July 31 but who knows what’s going to happen.
“We got on brilliantly. I would do anything for her – that’s how much I think about her. I was the biggest fan of it before anyway.
“Not being on social media, I was not aware of the reaction – but I was warned by friends,” he added.
‘Kristen texted,” Gal and I are trying to organize this thing to cheer up. “

Friends: Jamie admitted he was roped in the video by his friend and Barb and Star Go to Vista co-star Del Mar Kristen Wiig
Jamie agreed to do the video and admitted receiving a text message from Kristen several days after his release, apologizing for implicating him.
He said, “So I said to myself, ‘Of course I will.’ Then she texted a few days later saying, “Sorry.” ‘
Jamie filmed his segment from his restroom “to make it normal” and insisted that Gal “was trying to do a good thing”, adding, “I just got carried away with it.”
The video was an attempt to cheer up people during coronavirus blockages that are taking place in several countries around the world.
Out of touch: people weren’t impressed with the video, claiming they didn’t want to see wealthy A-list stars secluded in their lavish homes
However, social media users quickly condemned the video after it was released, claiming that the stars all isolate themselves in luxury.
“I don’t know how millionaires who sing” without possessions “from their homes are supposed to ease my anxiety,” wrote one user.
Asking the stars to put their money where their mouths are, someone else shared: ‘Cheesy and embarrassing, until they donate money I [couldn’t] care less about this video. ‘
“I just saw the Imagine celebrity video and now I’m not afraid of the coronavirus anymore,” joked another.
A-list: Will Ferrell and Mark Ruffalo were among the stars who appeared in the video
“I see celebrities from my face singing in Gal Gadot’s video,” said one person with a reaction image of two grinning tweets.
It all started with good intentions, as the Wonder Woman actress Gadot explained in the original video.
She introduced the project by saying, “Hey guys. Sixth day in auto-quarantine. And I must say that for the past few days, I have felt a bit philosophical.
“You know, this virus has affected the whole world, everyone – no matter who you are, where you come from, we’re all in the same boat. “

The Israeli starlet went on to say that it was inspired by a viral video of an Italian man playing the trumpet for his neighborhood as the country continued to lock up.
“There was something so powerful and pure in this video,” said Gal before launching the song.
Things persist with a new celebrity delivering each line, including Eddie Benjamin, Jimmy Fallon and Sia.
Gadot even enlisted the original Wonder Woman herself, Lynda Carter, with Leslie Odom Jr., Pedro Pascal, Chris O’Dowd and Dawn O’Porter.
Song: Maya Rudolph and Natalie Portman were also among the stars who appeared
Although he himself hadn’t seen any reviews online, Jamie said he could understand why some people weren’t impressed with the video.
He said, “I’ll tell you what the problem was. I literally did mine in the toilets of my house. Obviously, some people had escaped to their second home.
“There is too much area in the background, too many beautiful trees swaying in the background, clearly in front of an ocean, this kind of madness. I was fully aware of this every time I did it, to make it normal.
