Lynda Carter, 67, Reveals Why She Won’t Have Plastic Surgery: ‘I Am What I Am’ (Exclusive)
She still looks wonderful at age 67, and Lynda Carter says she hasn’t had any work done to achieve it. “I’m just too afraid of looking different,” the former star of TV’s Wonder Woman recently told Closer Weekly at the God’s Love We Deliver Golden Heart Awards in NYC.
“I don’t think I’m ever going to go under the knife — I am what I am!” The actress admits she’s had “a little Botox” and credits working out with a Peloton bike with helping to keep her fit. But she believes true beauty comes from within, no matter what your age.
“We are still full-blooded women with the complexities we all have and the powerful inner selves we all have,” the mother-of-two said. “That’s the part of Wonder Woman that resounds in people — it’s that person inside of us who is so powerful that we create life. As I like to say, we are the mothers of all mankind!”
Lynda starred in the TV series Wonder Woman from 1975 to 1979 and during her time on the show she learned a lot about what girl power means. “Wonder Woman taught women to be who you are,” Lynda told Closer in a previous interview. “I have received the greatest letters from people telling me what an inspiration she was to them because she represents an inner strength every woman has.”
Shockingly, Lynda’s hit TV show almost didn’t make it on the air. “TV executives didn’t think there was a market for a female holding a show like Wonder Woman,” Lynda revealed. “Women were buying all their products, yet men dominated the shows.”
The latest actress to play the lasso-throwing heroine has been Gal Gadot and she’s currently working on a new movie called Wonder Woman 1984 that’s set to premiere in 2020.
