Wonder Woman Star Says #MeToo

Lynda Carter opened up about her experiences with sexual misconduct in a new interview

Although she didn't give further details, Lynda also revealed sexual misconduct from someone else during her "Wonder Woman" days, which she was inspired to come forward about in the wake of the #MeToo movement. When talking about him, the actress mentioned she believes "every woman in the Bill Cosby case". However, she revealed that he has already been named in the sexual abuse scandal sweeping Hollywood as he had violated "a lot of people".

Lynda said she didn't report any of the abuse at the time because she knew no one would listen.

Carter's unnamed abuser is similarly facing justice now.

"He's already being done in".

Despite dealing with inappropriate encounters, Carter said she's never reported someone.

'But there's nothing legally I could add to it, because I looked into it.

Lynda Carter attends the 26th Annual GLAAD Media Awards at the Waldorf Astoria on Saturday, May 9, 2015, in NY.

The next season, Wonder Woman moved to CBS.

A rep for the actress reiterated to The Daily Beast that she "doesn't want to name any names" when the outlet asked if Cosby was the man she was referring to. Constand is one of dozens of women who have accused Cosby of an extended pattern of sexual misconduct.

In that same interview, Carter also revealed she had been the victim of sexual abuse, though she refused to go into detail beyond saying that her abuser is now facing some sort of punishment for his crimes already.

In the interview, Carter opened up a bit more about other instances of harassment that she endured during her career, including on the set of "Wonder Woman".

Carter also noted that a camera operator once drilled a peephole into her dressing room in the hopes that he could see her in the nude.

"They caught him, fired him, and drummed him out of the business", she told the Daily Beast.

Speaking with The Daily Beast, the 66-year-old actress recalls her own horrific experiences with sexual predators within the entertainment industry.

"Who are you going to tell except your girlfriends and your circle of friends?" she said.

She added that often men would laugh off their behavior "so there was an element of deniability there".
