Lynda Carter fires back at James Cameron over 'Wonder Woman' comments

Lynda Carter fires back at James Cameron over 'Wonder Woman' comments”

Cameron has made sexist comments about "Wonder Woman" for months.

He then bragged about Linda Hamilton's Sarah Connor from the "Terminator" series whom he considered an epitome of female action protagonist. But he was back at it again earlier this week, so now someone else has stepped up to tell him to stay in his lane: Wonder Woman herself, Lynda Carter. Gal Gadot was great.

However, instead of backing down, Cameron said he stands by his beliefs.

Speaking about the film's biggest star, Cameron explained: "I mean, [Gal] was Miss Israel, and she was wearing a kind of bustier costume that was very form-fitting".

In two separate interviews, James Cameron characterized Wonder Woman as a step back for women in Hollywood, saying that it sexualized its lead character. "They had Raquel Welch doing stuff like that in the 60s".

James Cameron added that the "Terminator" hero was not treated an objectified icon, unlike Gal Gadot's character.

He continued with comments about director Jenkins. The "Avatar" producer admitted that he did not expect that the public would be displeased of what he said about the blockbuster hit. The 66-year-old actress has previously played the female superhero in "Wonder Woman" series which ran for four years.

"Your thuggish jabs at a brilliant director, Patty Jenkins, are ill advised". The whole point of that conversation is that there's room for different variations of "groundbreaking" women on-screen, Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman certainly included.
