In a tweet , she said “James Cameron’s inability to understand what Wonder Woman is, or stands for, to women all over the world is unsurprising as, though, he is a great filmmaker, he is not a woman.”
He continued: “She’s an objectified icon, and it’s just male Hollywood doing the same old thing!
She was wrong, she was troubled, she was a terrible mother, and she earned the respect of the audience through pure grit.”
In her response, Jenkins also referenced Cameron’s past praise of her film, “Monster,” in which Charlize Theron won the Academy Award for best actress that year for her gritty interpretation of serial killer Aileen Wuornos.
“His praise of my film … and our portrayal of a strong yet damaged woman was so appreciated.
