Lynda Carter slams James Cameron for dissing Wonder Woman

By Admin / Published On Friday, 29 Sep 2017 17:36 PM / No Comments / 28 views

After James Cameron called the $ 820.4M-grossing Wonder Woman movie ‘a step backwards,’ Lynda Carter slammed the notoriously demanding 63-year-old director in a new Facebook post.

‘STOP dissing WW: You poor soul!’ the 66-year-old original Diana Prince – who boasts 858K social media followers – wrote on Thursday.

‘Perhaps you do not understand the character. I most certainly do. Like all women – we are more than the sum of our parts. Your thuggish jabs at a brilliant director, Patty Jenkins, are ill advised. This movie was spot on. Gal Gadot was great. I know, Mr. Cameron – I have embodied this character for more than 40 years. So – STOP IT.’

The three-time Oscar winner admitted to liking the ‘misguided’ film, but still called Wonder Woman ‘an objectified icon’ unlike waitress-turned-soldier Sarah Connor from Terminator 2: Judgment Day.

‘To me, [Wonder Woman was] a step backwards,’ Cameron told The Guardian on August 24.

‘Sarah Connor was not a beauty icon. She was strong, she was troubled, she was a terrible mother, and she earned the respect of the audience through pure grit. And to me, it’s so obvious. I mean, half the audience is female!’

Patty Jenkins was also outraged calling Jim’s comments ‘unsurprising’ since he’s ‘not a woman.’

‘His praise for my [first] film Monster, and our portrayal of a strong yet damaged woman was so appreciated,’ the 46-year-old Emmy nominee tweeted on August 24.

‘But if women have to always be hard, tough and troubled to be strong, and we aren’t free to be multidimensional or celebrate an icon of women everywhere because she is attractive and loving, then we haven’t come very far have we?’
