Israeli actress Gal Gadot hosted "Saturday Night Live" on Saturday, and had a message for her friends and family back home.

The "Wonder Woman" star began delivering her monologue in English, noting that this is the first time the sketch comedy show is being broadcast live in Israel, before switching to her native language.

"This might be one big mistake," she said in Hebrew. "The writers here have no idea about what's going on in Israel. They're giving me Hummus to eat. I love Hummus, but come on, there's a limit. They're very nice but not too sophisticated. They really think I'm Wonder Woman."

In one sketch, Gadot spoofed her summer blockbuster, "Wonder Woman," and locked lips with Kate McKinnon. Other sketches she took part in were about the Kardashians and O.J. Simpson. 

Gadot is the first Israeli to host “SNL” (not counting Jerusalem-born Natalie Portman).

Country singer Jason Aldean, whose Las Vegas show was the site of the mass shooting on Sunday, performed on the show. He sang the late Tom Petty’s “I Won’t Back Down.”

On Thursday, Gadot appeared on "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon," when she publicly had some firsts: tasting a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup for the first time and played a game of charades with Fallon, Miley Cyrus and The Roots' Tariq Trotter.
