Pamela Anderson (born 1.7.1967)
Pamela Anderson is an American / Canadian actress and glamour model, perhaps best known for her role in the popular American TV series Baywatch.
Childhood: Pamela Anderson was born in Ladysmith, British Columbia, to Carol and Barry Anderson. Her mother was a waitress and her father was a furnace repair man.
When she graduated from Highland Secondary School, Pamela Anderson moved to Vancouver and became a fitness instructor. When she went to watch a BC Lions match, she was shown on the big screen wearing a Labatts t-shirt. Labatts offered her a modelling contract, which she accepted.
In 1989, Pamela Anderson accepted an offer to model for Playboy and moved to Los Angeles to develop her career. After moving there, she landed a role as the original 'Tool Time Girl' on the sitcom Home Improvements, starring Tim Allen. She left the show after two seasons and it was then that she landed her breakthrough role, playing CJ Parker in Baywatch. Other actors in the show at the time included David Hasselhoff, Erika Eleniak and Yasmin Bleeth. Anderson returned to the role for a 2003 reunion show, Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding.
1996 saw Pamela Anderson starring in the film Barb Wire. It had a lightweight supporting cast and was a commercial flop. However, she continued appearing in Playboy and in April 1997, hosted an episode of Saturday Night Live.
In 2004, Pamela Anderson released a book, Star, which was co-written by Eric Shaw Quinn. She embarked on an extensive book-signing tour at Wal-Mart stores. Her second book, Star Struck, contains thinly-veiled references to her marriage to Tommy Lee.
The following year, she landed a role in a Fox sitcom, Stacked, playing the role of Skyler Dayton. The series also starred Christopher Lloyd.
The Comedy Central channel devised a show entitled the Roast of Pamela Anderson to pay respect to her. The show's guests included Courtney Love, Jimmy Kimmel and Sarah Silverman.
In July 2008, Pamela Anderson entered the Australian Big Brother house for three days. Her jaunt in the world of reality TV continued with Pam: Girl on the Loose on the E! channel.
Anderson took on the role of 'Genie in the Lamp' at the Aladdin pantomime, at the New Wimbledon Theatre in London. The role was previously played by Ruby Wax. Anita Dobson and Paul O'Grady were also lined up to play the role.
Personal Life: In 1995, Pamela Anderson married Tommy Lee, the drummer of Motley Crue. They had two sons, Brandon Thomas Lee (b.1996) and Dylan Jagger Lee (b. 1997). During their marriage, she was professionally known as Pamela Anderson Lee. A home sex video of the couple was stolen from their home and leaked onto the internet. Later, another video of Pamela Anderson and Bret Michaels of the band Poison was also leaked online.
Since divorcing Tommy Lee, Pamela Anderson has been engaged to Marcus Schenkenberg, a model, as well as Kid Rock. She married Kid Rock on a yacht in 2006. They divorced later that year. She then married Rick Salomon - formerly Paris Hilton's partner. However, in February 2008, she asked that the marriage be annulled, citing fraud as the reason for the annulment.
Pamela Anderson is a high profile advocate for PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals).
Pamela Anderson thinks ''progressive'' society can be ''paralysing'' for men who no longer know what they ''can do''.

She was a damaged woman before her big break with the magazine.
She may be one of the most iconic glamour models in the world, but Pamela Anderson hardly had an easy start to her incredible life. She has a history of sexual abuse, and yet becoming involved with Playboy turns out to be the best thing she ever could have done.

A wide-ranging interview for 'Life Stories' with Piers Morgan covered the #MeToo movement and Harvey Weinstein.
Pamela Anderson has said that she doesn’t want men to “feel like they can't make the first move”, speaking out again about the consequences of the Hollywood sexual misconduct scandal.
The 50 year old former Playboy model and star of ‘Baywatch’ appeared on Piers Morgan’s chat show 'Life Stories', to speak about her career in an interview that’s being broadcast this Saturday (March 3rd). The topic of conversation turned to the MeToo and Time’s Up movements, and Anderson sounded a note of caution.
“Obviously, I am supportive of women and feel for women that have been made sexual advances on that they don't want, but I also feel for the men too,” she said.
Anderson was speaking to Megyn Kelly about the Hollywood sexual misconduct scandal.
Pamela Anderson has made some controversial comments regarding the sexual misconduct scandal that has rocked Hollywood over the last two months, saying that the women who have accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment and rape “knew what they were getting into”.
The former ‘Baywatch’ actress, 50, was speaking to journalist Megyn Kelly in an interview on Thursday (November 30th). When the subject turned to the Weinstein scandal, Anderson remarked that it was an open secret in Hollywood that Weinstein was a predator.
“I think it was common knowledge. That certain people or certain producers in Hollywood are people to avoid privately,” she said. “You know what you're getting in to if you go to a hotel room, alone.”
Pamela Anderson has revealed that she ''learned'' to never put herself in situations where she could experience sexual misconduct.

The 50-year-old actress and model says it was ''common knowledge'' that certain people were to be avoided from meeting with privately in Hollywood.
Speaking on Today, she said: ''It was common knowledge that certain producers or certain people in Hollywood are people to avoid, privately. You know what you get into if you go to a hotel room alone [with them]. I learned to somehow never put myself in those situations again and when I came to Hollywood, of course, I had a lot of offers to do private auditions and things that made absolutely no sense.

Anderson appeared on 'Good Morning Britain', and was quizzed about her relationship with fugitive Wikileaks founder Assange by host Piers Morgan.
Former ‘Baywatch’ star Pamela Anderson has clarified her rumoured relationship with fugitive Wikileaks founder Julian Assange during an appearance on ‘Good Morning Britain’, saying that she wouldn’t class what they have as “romance”.
The 50 year actress and supermodel was on the sofa on Wednesday morning’s edition of the ITV magazine show (September 20th), and cleared up those rumours of a relationship with Assange after she was seen visiting with him on numerous occasions in the last year.
Australian-born Assange, 46, has been holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy in London for more than five years, in an attempt to avoid extradition to the United States for breaching bail conditions in relation to rape allegations in Sweden that have since been dropped.

Clearly, it's a risky proposition adapting a cheesy vintage TV series for the big screen: this is the second one that's gone awry this year, after CHiPs. But it doesn't have to be like this. Lively movie versions of Charlie's Angels and 21 Jump Street proved that with inventive writing, snarky performances and deranged energy, the result can be thoroughly entertaining. Sadly, this movie falls back on cheap jokes that simply aren't that funny. Fans of Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron will still have a good time - they're both unstoppably engaging - but the truth is that this simply isn't good enough.
We're back in Emerald Bay, where the beefy hotshot Mitch (Johnson) heads up the lifeguard crew with babes Stephanie and CJ (Ildenesh Hadera and Kelly Rohrbach). And now they're training up three new recruits: fallen Olympic swimming champ Matt (Efron), feisty hottie Summer (Alexandra Daddario) and pudgy geek Ronnie (Jon Bass). Meanwhile, as various crimes and calamities strike the beach, Mitch decides to investigate everything himself without the help of the local police. And as he becomes convinced that resort owner Victoria (Priyanka Chopra) is involved in bribery, extortion, drug running and murder, he sends his lifeguards undercover to catch her. Which of course is just a bit beyond what they were trained to do.

'Baywatch' star Pamela Anderson compares the movie with the old series.
'Baywatch' is returning to our screens very soon in the form a hilarious movie starring Dwayne Johnson. But the best part about it is the return of David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson, the latter of whom has spoken up about the big differences between the new movie and the 90s series.

To re-make something as classic and yet as cheesy as 'Baywatch' and still bring in an audience, comedy was the only direction in which to go. With Seth Gordon at the helm, there was always going to be plenty of irreverence and much profanity - which Pamela Anderson noticed set it way apart from the series.
There is no better lifeguard team out there than that of Los Angeles' Baywatch. However, they are seriously losing money and in order to boost their brand, a PR executive encourages them to get some fresh blood on the team. Matt Brody may have landed two gold medals in the field, but that doesn't guarantee he'll be right for the squad. He's far from an impressive addition in the eyes of Mitch Buchanan; he may be prettier, but he hasn't got the brains or the brawn to match up to him. Matt thinks the job is just about educating people on sunburn and stopping them from drowning, but when it becomes clear that there's a drug ring in the area and a body subsequently washes up on the beach, their job gets a whole lot more complicated. Yeah, they should probably leave it to the police, but instead they decide on an unauthorised undercover sting operation instead. Maybe thrill-seeking Matt can teach Mitch and the team a thing or two about living life on the edge. Or maybe he'll just run like hell.
