Israeli actress Gal Gadot put American talk show host Conan O'Brian through his paces this week when he decided he wanted to become a superhero. Gadot is starring in the new "Wonder Woman" movie out soon.

"You were trained in the Israeli army. I was a girl scout, for three months," he said, wondering if he has what it takes.

"Be honest with me," he said, taking off his jacket. "Look at my body and assess it, don't be afraid to be mean – what are the strengths and the weaknesses?"

"Very weak legs," she told him, looking him up and down, before putting his determination to the test with a rigorous training program that included dancing the Hava Nagilah, sword duels and rodeo riding.
