Biography

A pneumatic blonde model and former Playboy playmate, Canadian-American actress Pamela Anderson burst onto the scene in the early 1990s and defied skeptics by staying there. As the star of the international television phenomenon, "Baywatch" (syndicated, 1989-2001), Anderson cemented her seamless transition from modeling into acting and a long run as Page Six cover girl; the latter following her many love life travails with rocker boyfriends-turned-husbands Tommy Lee and Kid Rock. An internet-leaked sex tape with Lee did little to impede this one-woman entertainment juggernaut's late Nineties momentum. After over 15 years of fame, Anderson transcended from mere babe du jour to pop cultural icon - all without any discernible acting chops or substantial credits under her belt. Ironically, this surreal objectification of her as a "Superstar Sex Symbol" served as the driving sub-plot of the 2006 comedy "Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan." Through many years, surgical enhancements and PETA protests, Anderson never failed to fascinate a public, which, like Borat, viewed the ageless actress as America's idealized blonde bombshell.

Bonus Trivia

.

In 1997, a lawsuit alleging breach of contract by Lee went to trial. The judge dismissed one of the three counts against the actress and eventually dismissed the entire case; the suit stemmed from Lee's alleged verbal agreement in 1994 to appear in the feature "Hello, She Lied"; reportedly Lee refused to appear in the film because of the required nudity.

.

In 2002, Anderson announced during custody battle with Tommy Lee that she has Hepatitis C; claimed to have gotten it from sharing a needle with Lee; Lee claimed not to have the disease.

.

Anderson has graced the cover of Playboy eleven times as of 2007

.

In April 1999, she underwent surgery to have her breast implants removed.

.

"Tattoos are like stories - they're symbolic of the important moments in your life. Sitting down, talking about where you got each tattoo and what it symbolizes, is really beautiful." - Anderson quoted in Movieline, January 1996

.

"There are already a lot of serious actors. I respect these people, but I just want to be the one who has fun." - Anderson in USAToday, May 2, 1996

.

"I have this phobia: I don't like mirrors. Everybody on the set of 'Baywatch' carries around a mirror. If the makeup guy shows me a mirror, I get all upset. I don't watch myself on television. If anything comes on I make them shut it off or I leave the room." - Anderson in Manhattan File, April 1996

.

Not to be confused with the British actress Pamela Anderson ("Crimes of Passion")

.

In June, 2002 Anderson announced she would become a regular columnist for Jane magazine, penning an advice column called "Pam Honestly"

.

"I'm not an actress. I don't think I am an actress. I think I've created a brand and a business." - Anderson on "Larry King Live" (CNN), July 23, 2002

.

Anderson is an outspoken vegetarian and supporter of animal rights

.

"I think I'm very free. A free spirit. I've got a lot of pain in my life, but you know, keep it coming. A little bit of pain is god for you. I feel alive. Everybody needs struggle. Once you overcome an obstacle, you springboard into the future. Life is interesting and short and it's not suppose to be easy, and if it is, you're probably just in denial and you're existing here like a zombie. That's what I love about my kids. They're both alive. They're both full of energy and full of spirit." - Anderson to Interview magazine, October 2002

.

"I don't think about anything too much. If I think too much, it kind of freaks me out." - Anderson to Movieline, November 2002

.

"I have been fortunate. I haven't had too many auditions. I slept with all the right people." - Anderson to People magazine, June 30, 2003

.

On May 12, 2004, Pamela Anderson became an American citizen, but will not be giving up her Canadian citizenship.

.

"I know what the hell's going on. I hate to admit it, because pretending that I'm stupid has always been my ace in the hole." - Anderson on not being a dumb blonde to InTouch May 24, 2004
