Wonder Woman Star Says #MeToo
Lynda Carter, most well known for playing “Wonder Woman” 1970s TV show, recently spoke about the positive impact of the #MeToo movement and shared her own sexual harassment stories to The Daily Beast.
Carter stated that she had been sexually harassed by someone who already has had allegations brought against them, but she declined to name anyone. “He’s already being done in. There’s no advantage in piling on again,” Carter said in the interview.
The actress said she looked into legal recourse, but found she had little grounds at this point. “I can’t add anything to it. I wish I could. But there’s nothing legally I could add to it, because I looked into it.”
She added, “I don’t want it to be about me, it’s not about me. It’s about him being a scumbag. So legally I can’t do anything. If I could I would.”
Carter said that while filming the show on the Warner Brothers’ lot, a cameraman drilled a hole in her dressing room wall to spy on her. She shared the event, and the cameraman was fired shortly thereafter.
The actress finds the #MeToo movement inspiring and hopes it will enact real change in the Hollywood and the country.
