The hero of the 1970s live-action Wonder Woman TV show is no stranger to stars, but she's managed to add another one to her collection all the same. Lynda Carter doesn't have to wear this one on a costume either— it's on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

Carter received her star today, which honors the OG WW's 50-plus years in the business. And as you can see above, Carter even went so far as to commemorate the event by striking Wonder Woman's famous arm-over-arm pose. Les Moonves (the CEO of CBS) was in attendance, as well as Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot, the director and star of last year's big screen Wonder Woman

As Jenkins said at the ceremony, "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." She went on to describe Carter's heroine as being "soft while tough," and was "not afraid to be as loving as she was strong." According to Jenkins, Carter could celebrate her femininity while kicking ass at the same time. 

Gadot paid tribute to Carter on twitter, tweeting, "Thank you for your loving kindness shared by the sisterhood of women of wonder." 

Though Carter has popped up as a recurring character on Supergirl (playing the president), she did not have a cameo in last year's big screen smash. Variety is reporting that Carter is open to the idea of appearing in the highly anticipated sequel, saying, "I'm just going to leave it up to the universe and Patty." 

Wonder Woman 2 will hit the theaters on Nov. 1, 2019, and here's hoping that Carter will be a part of it. In the meantime, share your favorite memories of the legendary Lynda Carter in the comments below!
