Lynda Carter just told James Cameron to stop sounding off against "Wonder Woman." In a blistering Facebook post, the actress, who played the superhero on TV in the '70s, asked for him to drop his "ill-advised thuggish jabs" about the hit movie.
She also said, "perhaps you do not understand the character. I most certainly do. Like all women -- we are more than the sum of our parts... This movie was spot on. Gal Gadot was great. I know, Mr. Cameron--because I have embodied this character for more than 40 years. So -- STOP IT."
Cameron first dissed Gadot's Wonder Woman back in August, saying that the character was "an objectified icon" that represented "a step backwards." In a new interview this week, he repeated the claim, saying, "She's absolutely drop-dead gorgeous. To me, that's not breaking ground."
Because you can't be gorgeous and strong? Director Patty Jenkins responded to his initial criticism, saying there is "no right and wrong kind of powerful woman."
Carter has been a big supporter of the film, including appearing at the movie's Hollywood premiere alongside Jenkins and Gadot.
