Lynda Carter, at the age of 71, is still as beautiful as she was when she played Wonder Woman. Despite society’s expectations that women lose their beauty as they age, Carter has defied the odds and proven age does not limit that beauty. With her stunning figure and radiant confidence, she proves it’s never too late to take care of yourself and feel good in your own skin.
Lynda Carter’s unforgettable portrayal of Wonder Woman in the 1970s TV series of the same name made her a legend and a pop culture icon. Her on-screen persona inspired countless women and young girls who looked up to her as a beacon of courage, beauty, and empowerment.
To this day, Carter’s performance remains unforgettable, as fans of all ages still celebrate the Amazonian superhero, and her legacy continues to inspire new generations. “It was such a short part of my life, but it has made a bigger impact than any other thing I’ve done,” Carter says.
Despite the pressure that came with the iconic role of Wonder Woman, Carter navigated it with her natural beauty and undeniable talent. Today, even as the character has been portrayed by other actors, like Gal Gadot, Carter continues to maintain the legacy of her portrayal and the impact it had. “I’m very hopeful she embodies the essence of Wonder Woman,” Carter said of Gadot.
“It’s less about superpowers and more about heart and intellect and a sense of right and wrong with goodness in her,” explained Carter. “Oftentimes, writers really want to take a male superhero and dress him up as a female — and that’s just not who she is.”
Lynda Carter proved herself to be a real-life superheroine when she faced the ultimate challenge of losing her beloved husband of 37 years. Despite the overwhelming grief, Carter’s strength and grace shone through like a beacon of hope. Yet her unwavering determination and resilience in the face of such heartbreak and unimaginable pain have been a source of inspiration for all of her fans.
But moving on hasn’t been easy for the actress and singer. “The next part of my life is I want to learn who I am,” she said. “It’s totally frightening. I don’t know who I am without Robert.”
“It still gets me, I just can’t believe I’ve lost him,” she added. But Carter isn’t going through this pain alone, as she has the unwavering support of her 2 children, James and Jessica Carter, by her side. “Turns out my greatest adventure of all was becoming a mom. And I have loved every minute of it,” Carter wrote.
Having sacrificed her career to provide her children with a stable upbringing and ample parental attention, it’s now her children’s time to return the favor and be there for their mom.
Even though Carter rose to fame during her youth, portraying Wonder Woman, as she approaches 71 years old, it’s clear that she is ageless and continues to exude a timeless beauty. The actress was never afraid of aging; she embraced it as an inevitable part of life and never resorted to surgery to maintain her appearance.
Speaking candidly about the topic, she fearlessly shared, “It is what it is. I’m not going to cut myself all the way up. With all that stuff, I’m too scared to look different, so I don’t think I will.”
The actress spoke enthusiastically about her decision to forgo surgery and attributed it to her father and genetics, sharing, “I think part of it is just genetic. And my dad looks really great. He’s 95, he looks fantastic. I know too many people who have jobs behind them and they look awful. I’m scared of looking creepy.”
Carter keeps herself beautiful by eating healthy and avoiding processed foods. She loves exercising both indoors and outdoors. She works hard to maintain her beauty and fitness, and her mother’s pieces of advice have also helped her throughout her life.
Talking about her first beauty memory, she said, “It would be my mother. She was so ahead of her time. She said, ’Do not go out in the sun. If you do, you’ll end up like a prune or an old leather purse.’ She had no wrinkles on her face, and her hands were always soft.”
