Pam visits WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange

She recently talked about her relationship with Julian Assange, admitting they have grown ‘very close’ since meeting in 2014.

And Pamela Anderson proved her unusual bond with the WikiLeaks founder is going from strength to strength, as she visited him at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London’s Knightsbridge on Tuesday.

The Baywatch bombshell, 50, channeled retro glamour in an opulent pale blue fur coat layered over a silky shirt and a string of pearls for the relaxed outing.

The blonde beauty completed her scene-stealing look with a silky nude midi skirt with a racy front split.

Adding height to her petite frame, the glamour model rocked a vertiginous pair of dove-grey suede boots.
Pamela, who was last pictured visiting Julian in October, accessorised with white lace gloves and a black leather chain-trim bag.

Styling her golden tresses in simple, tousled waves, Anderson showed off her age-defying beauty with minimal make-up.
Her outing comes after she opened up about her much-speculated on relationship with Julian, 46.

‘I wouldn’t say it’s romantic, but we are very close,’ she said on daytime show Megyn Kelly Today.

She confirmed she was introduced to Assange through fashion designer Vivienne Westwood previously during a visit to the Embassy of Ecuador in London, where he resides.

She was first interested in learning from him about ways to become ‘more effective as an activist,’ she said, while speaking with Kelly.

‘How could I improve my foundation? What does he think? Could we brainstorm about something?,’ she thought at the time.

Assange has been living in solitude in political asylum for some time now, after being accused in 2010 of sexual assault and rape against two women in Sweden – which he since denied.

When Kelly inquired about the actress’ thoughts on the disturbing allegations, Anderson said, ‘If you read through the reports and the UN findings, there is no evidence of rape.’
Earlier this year, prosecutors in the country ended the investigation. Assange was not charged for the alleged crimes.

But it seems that won’t change the conditions of his daunting detainment – which Anderson described into grim detail.

‘He lives in a very tiny space. He never sees the sunlight. He can’t get outdoors. He doesn’t go near windows, really, unless he goes out on that balcony once every few years,’ she told Kelly.

‘I’m there for four hours at a time and I see him all the time. He’s happy to see me when I come (and) very sad when I leave.’
Although confined, she said he is ‘safe’ where he’s at.

‘If he were to leave the Embassy, he would be arrested,’ she added. ‘He’s a really important person to me.’

Anderson told the NBC reporter, during the first part of the interview that aired Thursday, that Harvey Weinstein accusers shouldn’t have made the choice to go to ‘a hotel room alone’ with the hot head Hollywood powerhouse.

‘It was common knowledge that certain producers or certain people in Hollywood or people to avoid, privately,’ Anderson said.
She further denied any form of ‘victim blaming’ while speaking with TMZ Friday when she said: ‘(I) will not get coerced into apology’.

She also made a point to say the disgraced director is a ‘sexist pig and bully.’

In what appeared to be a jibe at his victims, she said it was ‘no excuse’ to presume the meetings were safe just because they were set up by agents – a claim which has been made by actresses such as Gwyneth Paltrow, who detailed run-ins with Weinstein.

‘I just think there’s easy ways to remedy that. That’s not a good excuse,’ Anderson said.

Pamela Anderson Slammed for Saying Harvey Weinstein’s Accusers Knew What They Were ‘Getting Into’

Pamela Anderson faced backlash for comments she made about Harvey Weinstein’s accusers during an interview on Megyn Kelly Today on Thursday, November 30.

After discussing her own experience with childhood sexual abuse, the Baywatch alum, 50, said, “When I came to Hollywood, of course I had a lot of offers to do private auditions and things that made absolutely no sense. [It’s] just common sense: Don’t go into a hotel room alone. If someone answers the door in a bathrobe, leave. These [are] things that are common sense. … It was common knowledge that certain producers or certain people in Hollywood are people to avoid, privately. You know what you’re getting into if you’re going into a hotel room alone.”

Anderson went on to say that the women who have accused Weinstein, 65, of sexual misconduct “should have” brought their agents or assistants along with them rather than meeting with the film producer alone. “I just think there’s easy ways to remedy that,” she said. “That’s not a good excuse.”

More than 80 women, including actresses Rose McGowan and Gwyneth Paltrow, have come forward against Weinstein with allegations of sexual harassment or assault since The New York Times published a damning exposé in October. The former executive, who has denied “any non-consensual sex” claims, was subsequently fired from his company and expelled from professional associations including the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. In addition, his wife of nearly 10 years, fashion designer Georgina Chapman, announced in October that she was leaving him amid the scandal. There are ongoing criminal investigations in cities including Los Angeles, London and New York City into Weinstein’s alleged behavior.

After being slammed on social media for her remarks, Anderson took to Instagram to stick up for herself. “Somebody had to say this,” she wrote on Friday, December 1. “I’m a deep thinker / I have a unique perspective. and consequence is part of my life. This is great. I am also an advocate for men. I just don’t agree with it all. Backlash is good. – I like this. My position is not ‘problematic’ because I don’t fall in line with the common herd or trend. … I think it’s very smart to be proactive. And I stand by what I say.”

Pamela says it was ‘common knowledge’ Harvey Weinstein was dangerous

Pamela Anderson said it was ‘common knowledge’ Harvey Weinstein was dangerous and told how she avoided being stuck alone with him in an interview on Thursday morning.

The Playboy veteran laughed as she said she was not surprised the onslaught of sexaul assault allegations against the movie mogul and described how he once phoned her to bully her about a film she was in.

Appearing on Megyn Kelly Today, Anderson, 50, said: ‘I think it was common knowledge. That certain people or certain producers in Hollywood are people to avoid privately.

‘You know what you’re getting in to if you go to a hotel room, alone.’

In what appeared to be a jibe at his victims, she said it was ‘no excuse’ to presume the meetings were safe just because they were set up by agents, a claim which has been made by actresses including Gwyneth Paltrow as they detailed their run-ins with Weinstein.

‘I just think there’s easy ways to remedy that. That’s not a good excuse,’ Anderson said.

Earlier, she said she had long learned how to avoid being put in the very situation many of Weinstein’s accusers described.

‘I learned not to put myself in those positions. When i came to hollywood, I had a lot of offers to do private auditions and things that just made no sense, just common sense.

‘Don’t go into a hotel room alone. If someone answers the door in a bathrobe, leave.

‘Things that are common sense but I know Hollywood is very seductive and people want to be famous and sometimes you think you’re going to be safe with an adult in the room and, I don’t know where this security comes form but somehow I dodged it all.’

While she never encountered any sexual confrontation from Weinstein, she did give an anecdote of how he once bullied her over the phone as they worked on the 2008 film Superhero in which she played The Invisible Girl.

‘He’s very intimidating. I was doing a movie superheroes or something and I played the invisible girl with an invisible dog. As a PETA activist, I don’t work with animals in film because they’re treated horribly. I said, “If I have an invisible dog, I just want to make sure there’s no dog there because I can’t do the film if if there’s going to be a dog in the film. That’s it”.

‘Then he called and said “you little, you’re so lucky that I put you in a film and you’re Pamela Anderson and you don’t deserve anything and if you don’t do this thing, you’ll never work in this town again.”

‘Never in my life have I been talked to like that, and I’ve had some bad boyfriends,’ she said.

Anderson said she had been forced to fight off inappropriate advances and offers long before the Weinstein revelations emerged and that she had turned down ‘money, homes and cars’ from men who wanted to sleep with her.

‘I’ve been offered lots of things. A condo and a porsche to be someone’s number one girl. I just naively said, “Well there must be a number 2 then, so I’m not interested.”

‘Money, homes, roles in movies. And I just didn’t want to do it that way. I had no desire. I’m a romantic and it didn’t appeal to me.’ Anderson has spoken in the past of how she was sexually abused as a child.

In the second part of her interview with Kelly, she described her friendship with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and described him as ‘smart, funny and brilliant’.

Anderson has been known to visit Assange at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London where he has been seeking refuge for years.
