Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot has been vocal about her passion for inspiring young women, and on Wednesday morning she furthered that goal in the form of presenting college scholarships. "I'm kidding! Oh my gosh-she really made an impact down at SNL".

"We are midwestern toads compared to this Mediterranean goddess", McKinnon joked.


"Everything she says is like a prophecy", McKinnon said of Gadot and her mesmerizing accent. "I asked her, like, do you have hobbies, Gal?" The actress presented a Wonder Woman scholarship from Warner Bros. during The Hollywood Reporter's 2017 Women in Entertainment breakfast, held at Los Angeles' Milk Studios. I love to watch my children run on the sand.

Gadot even coaxed the SNL staff to reveal personal secrets during the show's weekly host dinner. While sharing the sweet anecdote, McKinnon essentially transformed into the action movie star. "She sat down and she was like, 'I want everyone to go around the table and say something they've never told anyone, '" McKinnon recalled.


McKinnon ended the interview by saying Gadot had "changed the game, flipped the script".

Apparently, while prepping for the show, Gadot shelled out some pretty sage advice to Kate and fellow castmember Aidy Bryant.


Nearly immediately, McKinnon jumped into a flawless impression of Wonder Woman's unique accent.
