Carter has spoken before about how she was warned not to take the role because other women would be jealous of her. She finds this ridiculous, in part because she says she “never played Wonder Woman. I always played Diana.”

“I would never have tried to play a predatory female,” Carter continues. “I’ve never been one. I don’t even know how to be one. Wonder Woman would be the first to bop someone upside the head if he were looking at her when he’s got his arm around his girlfriend. She would not be happy with him and she’d tell him so.”

Despite her character’s patriotic form-fitting ensemble and the fact that she was, for a long time, the lone female superhero in town, Carter doesn’t feel the role objectified her “any more than Superman with a sock in his pocket is objectified.

“We all like looking at pretty people,” she says. “It doesn’t mean anything to me. There are so many more things to worry about… Let’s worry about who we’re going to put in the Oval [Office] next time.”
