Kate McKinnon shows off Gal Gadot impression

Kate McKinnon shows off Gal Gadot impression

McKinnon, best known for portraying Hillary Clinton on SNL, whipped out her impression of the Israeli actress in an interview Tuesday night on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

"I asked her, 'Do you have hobbies, Gal?' and she was like, 'I love to go to the beach". While sharing the sweet anecdote, McKinnon essentially transformed into the action movie star. "We have to do this.' We kinda went around and did it, and it got to [SNL boss Lorne Michaels], who looked kinda freaked out the whole time, and he was like, 'Well, when I was 10..." "Do you have a hobby, Kate?' And I was like, 'I watch Dateline!'".

Gal Gadot stepped out of her Wonder Woman costume on Wednesday to surprise a young woman with a truly wonderful award: a college scholarship.


Gadot even coaxed the SNL staff to reveal personal secrets during the show's weekly host dinner. She told the story of meeting Gadot, along with her SNL co-star Aidy Bryant, and explained how both of them were in awe of their new acquaintance. "But she just sat down and she was like, 'I want everyone to go around the table and say something they've never told anyone.' And we were like, 'Yeah, okay, Gal'".

McKinnon ended the interview by saying Gadot had "changed the game, flipped the script". Gadot wiped away tears while Carla spoke, with much of the room also getting emotional.

Nearly immediately, McKinnon jumped into a flawless impression of Wonder Woman's unique accent. After a lengthy, passionate smooch, "Wonder Woman" declared, "I'm sorry I feel nothing".
