Washington D.C. [U.S.A], Oct. 3 (ANI): Hollywood actress Gal Gadot, who conquered the worldwide Box-Office with her role of Princess of Themyscira in 'Wonder Woman', has admitted that she's "nervous" about hosting 'Saturday Night Live' for the first time.

The 32-year-old actress is also hoping that she doesn't stumble over her words.

While talking at an event, Gal admitted, "It's [SNL] gonna be crazy. I love this show. That's my fear, to speak like a dummy."

The Israeli actress explained while she has done improvisation before, it has never been on the scale of the hugely popular live sketch show, which has been running since 1975 and she joked that her accent makes it difficult to even pronounce the title of the show.

He noted, "I'm thinking about the monologue and I'm like, 'Ahh.' Say 'Saturday Night Live'. But I am excited. 'Improv, yeah I did, but never in America on Saturday night. I can barely say 'Saturday Night Live.'"

The 'Keeping up with the Jones' star starred as the iconic character in the Patty Jenkins-directed film, and the moviemaker has admitted to being shocked by how warmly 'Wonder Woman' was received by critics.

The actress explained, "I went into the release of the movie assuming it would be, in best case, a mixed bag. And I sort of braced myself for it, where I thought, well, 'Listen, you're doing a beloved superhero; it's always going to end up being at least 40 percent, oh you could have done, blah blah blah."

The 'Wonder Woman' star will be at the helm of the show this weekend (7.10.17), while 'Writing's on the Wall' singer Sam Smith will be the musical guest for the second episode of the current series. (ANI)
