Cecily Strong Reveals Which Celeb Was the Nicest 'SNL' Host

Which celeb was the “nicest” host of Saturday Night Live? Cecily Strong is spilling!

The 34-year-old SNL star stopped by E!’s Busy Tonight to share some behind-the-scenes secrets with host Busy Philipps.

“Most of the time everybody is very nice,” Cecily said. “I think because people come in and they’re nervous and they want to do well. So you’re seeing people kind of at their most vulnerable, which is a very nice, nice state I think, when someone is scared and weak – I prefer them that way.”

“I was actually the most shocked by Chris Hemsworth,” she added. “He came in and sort of like charmed us all, and was so like the cool jock that wants to hang out with like, the gay theater kids. And you’re like, ‘Oh my god.’ I feel like he left and we were all like, ‘Are we all dating Chris Hemsworth now?’ Like all the boys and all the girls were all like, ‘Are we all in love? What happened? What just happened?’”

Watch the videos from her appearance below!

Busy Tonight airs Monday through Thursday at 11 p.m. on E!
