Interviewed by Variety before the ceremony, Jenkins explained how much of an influence Carter’s portrayal of the superhero was in crafting her 2017 film adaptation.

“It’s quite incredible to become a part of the story with someone I admire as much as I do Lynda. As the years have gone on, I’ve come to admire that she carried that same spirit into her personal life as well.”

She continued by saying, “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 Carter’s portrayal of Wonder Woman made her believe she could have whatever she wanted and be “unashamed to want it.”

The movie Wonder Woman star, Gal Gadot, tweeted thanks to Carter for her “loving kindness shared by the sisterhood of women of wonder.”

Carter said of the star: “It will be here forever, and maybe it needs to say Wonder Woman. Hopefully, this character and I will live on in the memories of people.”

Carter had some words in support of Hollywood’s #MeToo movement as well, saying: “The #MeToo movement is strong and I give everything to this generation. What my generation can do is support you. We’ve been screaming the same thing but it took this generation of women to make the difference.”

“Most women have been hit on, and being hit on is different than assault, and it is different if you’re being pressured because you are subordinate or you’re being drugged. I’m not saying that you need to be assaulted to have a hand up for #MeToo. If you are super uncomfortable and got yourself in your situation, you get yourself out. And if you see that guy coming, you warn other people.”
