Original Wonder Woman Lynda Carter Just Shared Her Own #MeToo Story

Original Wonder Woman Lynda Carter Just Shared Her Own #MeToo Story”

Lynda Carter reflects on her own history dealing with sexual harassment in Hollywood in a new interview with The Daily Beast.

The Wonder Woman actress, 66, refused to reveal the identity of the man in question, however she did say the man has mistreated 'a lot of people'.

Carter also shared that she suffered further sexual harassment and abuse during her career from at least one person, and though she didn't identify him, she said he is now facing an impending legal punishment.

"He's already being done in".

Carter also said she stands by every single woman accusing Bill Cosby and President Donald Trump of sexual misconduct. But there's nothing legally I could add to it, because I looked into it.

For the past several months we have come to learn just what exactly "Me Too" really means.

She added, "I don't want it to be about me, it's not about me. It's about him being a scumbag". While promoting a new Smithsonian Channel three-part special called Epic Warrior Women, Carter said she's "fended off" her share of unwanted advances over the years - including a Peeping Tom who was sacked from the set of her Wonder Woman TV show after drilling a hole in her dressing-room wall.

Carter said she "fended off my share" of unwanted sexual advances and had been "afraid" on other occasions during her career, but she never reported the incidents due to a fear of being blacklisted from the industry. We've been trying to tell you. If someone is hitting on you aggressively, you go, "Back off" and he does.

The actress said she looked into legal recourse, but found she had little grounds at this point.

"You'd say or hear, 'Stay away from that guy.' 'Watch out for this casting director", Carter explained. 'Watch out for so and so.' That's how you protected yourself: "through the grapevine".

Even Wonder Woman isn't immune to sexual harassment or abuse.

"Why would they lie?" she asked. "I asked my husband if he was surprised by all the #MeToo stories. 'Yeah, I'm surprised, ' he said", Carter told The Daily Beast. It's been going on for years. We weren't going to take any sh-t from people. It's not news to us [women], but it is news to you [men]. "So we felt strong in that, but there were still not a lot of parts for us", she said. "I believe the women". "We've been trying to tell you for a long time and you haven't listened". Read the full interview over at The Daily Beast.
