Pamela Anderson may not be alive today if it weren’t for Playboy.
After being molested by a female babysitter as a child and suffering non consensual experiences with men early on in her life, the former Playmate says the magazine helped her keep going.
“I was painfully shy as a child. As a young girl, Playboy empowered me. It really saved my life,” the 50-year-old told Us Weekly. “I felt very trapped inside and needed to free myself. It was a breakthrough for me, and there I met artists and activists and gentlemen. It has been a fun and wildlife.”
She appeared on Playboy’s cover a record 14 times.
Still, living in the spotlight wasn’t always fun, Anderson noted, and as a result she’s largely stepped back to live in France with her soccer star boyfriend, Adil Rami.
“Hollywood is difficult. It is not my favorite place to be, but it is a business, and if this is the life you want, you play the game,” she said. “I’m happy to be living in France now. Hollywood is too much. I’d rather use my energy in other ways.”
Part of why Anderson may find Hollywood a difficult place is because she no longer has the guidance of Playboy founder Hugh Hefner, whose2017 death deeply affected her.
The “Baywatch” star revealed last month, “I have had men say, ‘Come back to my hotel room and audition with me. If you don’t come I will give it to the girl across the hall.’ And the they have ended up giving the role to a girl across the hall. People have said, ‘Pamela, come and join us in the Jacuzzi and I will give you 100,000.’ And I have said, ‘I think that is more than just the Jacuzzi. I am calling Hef.’ ”Anderson is much happier in her current life as an activist for PETA and against ride-sharing apps.
“Activism is sexy. I encourage everyone to be brave and step outside your comfort zone,” she said. “It’s a springboard into the unknown. And when you can do this, you can really live.”
