Lynda Carter: Sandra Bullock Not Too Old for 'Wonder Woman'
Original "Wonder Woman" star Lynda Carter has slammed reports she branded Sandra Bullock "too old" to play the superhero siren in a big screen remake - insisting the Oscar winner would be "great" in the role. A host of A-list ladies have been tipped to take over from Carter, who starred in the 1970s TV show, in Joss Whedon's movie revival, including Megan Fox, Eliza Dushku and Beyonce Knowles.
But when Bullock was suggested for the lead, Carter was rumored to have slated "The Blind Side" actress - insisting a younger star should take on the action role. But Carter is adamant she never made the comments - and would love to see Bullock front the film.
Speaking on U.S. TV show "Good Morning L.A.", she says, "There was an idea that Sandra Bullock should play 'Wonder Woman' and I think it's a great idea. She's exactly the kind of a personality and somehow it got messed around that I had said she was too old. That's nonsense, it wasn't true. She's strong and feminine. And Wonder Woman has to be accessible."
