Lynda Carter Slams Megan Fox Over 'Wonder Woman' Insult
Megan Fox: stop talking.
Lynda Carter starred in "The New Adventures of Wonder Woman" in the late 1970s and has said that she loved the superhero since she was a kid. Carter is reportedly pretty unhappy that Megan Fox is being considered to play Wonder Woman in a new version, considering what Megan Fox said.
It's reported Megan Fox is in talks to star as Wonder Woman, the superhero who's been called the icon of feminism since the mid-20th Century. When Lynda Carter heard this buzz, she felt the need to speak up -- she'd once heard Megan Fox make fun of the character. "She flies around in her invisible jet and her weaponry is a lasso that makes you tell the truth," Megan Fox was quoted saying about what she called the "lame superhero."

Lynda Carter thinks it's pretty comical that suddenly Megan Fox is vying to play the part -- need a paycheck a little, Megan? Carter showed up on the set of FoxNews to discuss her wonder about Fox's folly: "Megan Fox actually kind of trashed Wonder Woman," Lynda Carter said. "She said she thought it was dumb, like, 'What's the big whoop making people tell the truth.'" Carter said she didn't necessarily hold Megan Fox's words against her -- "I like her," she said -- but perhaps Megan shouldn't speak so flippantly. "I just thought she shouldn't trash Wonder Woman."

But should she play Wonder Woman? Commenters participating in Web buzz say totally -- both Lynda Carter and Megan Fox are total hotties. (Really guys, the feminism thing?) Sounds like these two actresses may have different approaches to sexuality, too -- where Megan Fox is known for flaunting, Lynda Carter once said,
"I never meant to be a sexual object for anyone but my husband. I never thought a picture of my body would be tacked up in men's bathrooms. I hate men looking at me and thinking what they think. And I know what they think. They write and tell me.".
