Gal Gadot stepped out of her Wonder Woman costume on Wednesday to surprise a young woman with a truly wonderful award: a college scholarship. "They're the true leaders of tomorrow".
The studio's first-time award was bestowed upon a young woman named Carla, who Gadot indicated would not be able to continue attending the university without the help of financial assistance.
"She's strong-minded, opinionated and gutsy".
Unfortunately, McKinnon and her SNL castmate, Aidy Bryant, came to an unpleasant realization after interacting with Gadot. "She sat down and she was like, 'I want everyone to go around the table and say something they've never told anyone, '" McKinnon recalled. "Y'all are sneaky".

A day later, Florida State president John Thrasher said that Taggart's decision had been a "no-brainer". I don't want to leave, Dad, but if you are going to chase your dream, I am going to ride with you'.
"Everything she said was magic".
For example, when McKinnon asked the actress what her hobbies are, Gadot replied in her signature soothing voice, "I love to go to the beach".
Justin Timberlake also took part in the presentation, announcing scholarships for THR's highly competitive Women in Entertainment Mentorship program and three full-ride scholarships also to LMU. Both Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Pascal were honored at the event with reports indicating that Sarah Silverman served as the ceremony's opener while Angelina Jolie took on the role of the morning's keynote speaker. The VIP event was sponsored by American Airlines, Fiji Water, Forevermark, Gersh, eOne, SAG-AFTRA and Loyola Marymount University in partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Los Angeles and the Entertainment Industry Foundation.
