Pamela Anderson

Pamela Anderson

Pamela Denise Anderson (born July 1, 1967) is a Canadian international television actress, model, producer, and sex symbol known for her beauty, curvaciously enhanced figure, and revealing fashions, her tongue-in-cheek acting, and reports of her personal life in tabloid newspapers.

Early life

Anderson was born in 1967 in Ladysmith, British Columbia, Canada of partially Finnish ancestry (her paternal grandfather, Juho Hyytiäinen, left Finland in 1908). As the first baby born on Canada's Centennial Day (unexpectedly well past midnight, at 4:08 in the morning), the newborn Anderson won fame as the nation's "Centennial Baby".

She was subsequently "discovered" in 1989 when, attending a B.C. Lions football game wearing a Labatt's beer t-shirt, her image was shown on the stadium's giant screen. She was hired by Labatt's to promote their product, and soon after, she appeared in Playboy magazine. She later had breast augmentation and collagen to enhance her appearance. Her natural hair color is brown and she bleaches her own hair at home according to her personal stylist.

Acting Career

Anderson's first major television role was on the United States hit television sitcom Home Improvement (1991-1993).

But her rise to stardom came primarily from her role as C J Parker (1992-1997) on Baywatch. In 1996, she appeared in a feature film, Barb Wire, which failed to achieve commercial success; and in 1998 she appeared in her own television series, V.I.P., which ran for four seasons. As of April 13, 2005, Anderson starred on a new FOX TV series, Stacked as Skylar Dayton.

Personal life

In addition to her fame from modelling and acting, Anderson has gotten a great deal of press attention for her flamboyant personal life. She married rock star Tommy Lee of the band Mötley Crüe after knowing him for only 96 hours, and subsequently bore him two sons, Brandon and Dylan. After reported incidents of spousal abuse and alcoholism on the part of Lee, Anderson filed for divorce twice and reconciled twice, before the couple finally broke up for good. During the period of her marriage, she was known professionally as Pamela Anderson Lee. Since her divorce, she has become engaged to model Marcus Schenkenberg, broken up with him, and became engaged to rock musician Kid Rock.

Anderson has also had relationships with Scott Baio, "Baywatch" co-star David Charvet, and musician Bret Michaels of the band Poison. She has also allegedly has had affairs with celebrities including Sylvester Stallone, Dean Cain, surfer Kelly Slater, Ben Affleck, Fred Durst, and reality TV star Eric Nies.

A pornographic home video of Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee was stolen from their home, and made a huge stir on the Internet. Anderson sued the company, the Internet Entertainment Group, that was distributing the video. Ultimately the courts awarded Anderson and Lee $1.5 million plus attorney fees for their share of the profits.[1] The popularity and profitability of the video sparked a miniature genre within the porn film industry, and since then many homemade porn videos of celebrities have been released to the public through home video and Internet channels (either with or without the participants' co-operation). Frames of the video first appeared in Penthouse Magazine in March of 1998.

In March 2001, Christine Evelyn Roth pled guilty to a misdemeanor charge of trespassing and was deported to her home country, France. The woman had been arrested while sleeping in a guest room of Anderson's home, but she was only charged with trespassing and not the more serious crime of stalking.

In March 2002, Anderson publicly stated that she had contracted the Hepatitis C virus from Lee (supposedly from sharing tattoo needles), and began writing a regular column for Jane magazine. Lee denies having the disease. Anderson became the celebrity spokesperson for the American Liver Foundation, and served as the Grand Marshall of the SOS motorcycle ride fundraiser. In October 2003, Anderson jokingly said on Howard Stern's radio show that she does not expect to live more than ten or fifteen years [2], but this was misconstrued and taken seriously by many Internet sites and tabloids.

Anderson became a naturalized citizen of the United States on May 12, 2004, while retaining her Canadian citizenship, for the purpose of sponsoring her parents (or at least her mother) for a green card. She has lived in southern California since 1989.

She is currently a columnist for the Canadian Elle magazine, stars in the sitcom Stacked and voices the cartoon vixen Agent 69 Stripperella in the series of the same name. She has also voiced herself in the series.

Anderson has often spoken revealingly about her private life. On a visit to the David Letterman show in 2004, she said she had not been dating for some time, and when Letterman asked her how she was coping, she responded, "There's not a square corner left anywhere in my house!" Letterman left that comment unanswered while the audience hooted.

Novelist

In 2004, Pamela Anderson released the book Star, in which she describes a young teenager doing different things in order to reach fame. After this, she began touring across the States, signing autographs to fans at Wal-Mart stores nationwide.

A sequel, Star Struck, released in 2005, is a thinly veiled look at her life with Tommy Lee and the travails of celebrity life.

 

Animal rights

In 1999, Anderson received the Linda McCartney Award for animal rights protectors.

In 2001, Anderson released a letter in support of PETA's vandalism of Kentucky Fried Chicken; stating, "What KFC does to 750 million chickens, each year, is not civilized or acceptable."

In 2003, Anderson stripped down for PETA's "I'd Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur" advertising campaign.

Many people have questioned her actual knowledge of Animal Rights Issues. In a 2005 interview with Larry King the subject came up, with King asking her what her position on testing medications and treatments on animals if it could ultimately help save the lives of people. In response she admited she didn't know they tested drugs on animals and stated "I don't know anything about that." Advocating the end to Animal drug testing is one of the prime premises of most Animal Rights groups.
