Kate McKinnon and Gal Gadot’s blossoming friendship has been one of the positive stories to come out of Hollywood amidst the problematic occurrences constantly coming to light. Over the course of the last year, the SNL comedian and Wonder Woman lead have become good, extremely close friends, going so far as to share a kiss in a skit when Gadot hosted the show in October. And while we can’t speak for Gadot, McKinnon has a perfect imitation she revealed on Tuesday's Tonight Show.
McKinnon described herself asking the Wonder Woman star what her hobbies were. Tilting her head to the side, placing her hand in her hair, emitting the dreamiest voice possible, she channeled her inner Gadot for Jimmy Fallon. “I love to go to the beach,” she began amidst cackles from the audience. “I love to watch my children run on the sand. I love to go to the Maldives,” she finished in the matter-of-fact tone Gadot is known for. The SNL veteran switched to her own reaction to Gadot: a blank face. “I was like, I watch Dateline, Gal,” McKinnon said. “Everything she said was magic.”
If you’ve watched Wonder Woman or seen any of Gal Gadot’s interviews, it’s almost scary how accurate McKinnon nailed the actress’ ethereal vibe. Now, we wait to see if Gadot’s been doing her homework on McKinnon’s deadpan delivery.
