Israeli model and actress Gal Gadot shared what it's like for a small-town Israeli girl to hit the big time in America during her Tuesday night appearance on NBC's "The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon." She stars as Wonder Woman in the upcoming superhero movie from American director Zack Snyder, to be released in June.

"It was surreal," she said referring to seeing a giant billboard of herself in Times Square. "You cannot take it in. I'm from Israel, from this small city and now I'm all over Time Square, it's insane."
