Lynda Carter (Finally) Receives A Star On The Hollywood Walk Of Fame
Almost 40 years later, TV's 'Wonder Woman' is getting the respect she deserves.
Well, it's about time!
TV's Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter, received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Tuesday, April 3.
"Wonder Woman gave birth to my career, and now we have come full circle and we have millions of new fans," Carter shared with the crowd. "It seems impossible, but I have been in the entertainment industry for more than 50 years — do the math — and I have loved it all."
Ever humble, Carter said she couldn't have done it without her amazing family, friends, and fans.
“I love this business. I love it all. But my fondest memories of my career are the wonderful people I have met," she shared. "I would be nowhere without my wonderful fans. I never take it for granted."
Carter, who played the Amazonian on CBS from 1975-1979, channeled her classic role by striking various WW poses on the red carpet.
While the 66-year-old is best known for the role of Wonder Woman, she's been a Hollywood fixture for over five decades.
2017 Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins and CBS boss Les Moonves both attended Carter's star ceremony.
"It was Lynda’s portrayal of Wonder Woman that made me fall in love with her because her Wonder Woman made me believe that I could have whatever I wanted, and even more importantly, it made me unashamed to want it," Jenkins said, according to EW. "She wasn’t afraid to be soft while tough, she wasn’t afraid to be as loving as she was strong, she wasn’t afraid to love being a woman and celebrate her femininity, all while kicking ass and changing the world."
But it was this final word from Carter that reminded us she'll always be a goddess:
"Through the ups and downs and the good times and bad, you have enriched my life and you have always been there for me," she said. "To all the wonder women out there: We love our men that stand with us and champion our causes and our voices."
