Pamela Anderson Reveals Why She ‘Has No Intention’ Of Watching Her Netflix Documentary

Pamela Anderson is ready to share her full story with fans in her intimate new documentary Pamela, A Love Story — but she won’t be watching it herself. “The documentary I haven’t seen – and have no intention of seeing,” she confirmed in an interview to Vanity Fair. The film includes content from her own personal archives, including plenty of never before seen videos and photos from her past romances, work projects like Baywatch and her Broadway Chicago run, as well as children Brandon, 26, and Dylan, 24.

“I gave full access to my archives and diaries, and hope that it makes sense to somebody,” she also told the Conde Nast publication. “I hope that my story inspires people to have a great f***ing time and not worry so much,” she added pointedly.

The documentary, directed by Mike White, was confirmed last March via Instagram shortly after Hulu’s Pam & Tommy streamed. In a letter, the British Columbia native described herself as “not a victim, but a survivor, alive to tell the real story.” Beyond the film, the animal activist and philanthropist will also release a memoir called Love, Pamela.

The Hulu series specifically focused on her relationship with ex-husband Tommy Lee and the events surrounding the theft, sale and eventual publication of her private sex videos with the Mötley Crüe drummer. Pamela was not involved in the series which starred Lily James and Sebastian Stan as the iconic ’90s couple, and the producers were able to obtain rights to the story by optioning a Rolling Stone article from 2004 about the sale of the sex tape by Rand Gauthier (played by Seth Rogen in Hulu’s series).


Pamela Anderson makes ‘iconic comeback’ in stunning all-white look

Pamela Anderson is making an “iconic comeback” to social media.

On Monday, the 55-year-old “Baywatch” star and animal rights activist took to Instagram to show off a feathered, all-white halter gown. She paired the look with an oversized matching hat, a glove and a pair of white sandal high heels.

The “Barb Wire” actress debuted the look in an Instagram Reel of herself dragging a tied-up Christmas tree down a flight of stairs in Paris, France, before approaching a man dressed up as Santa Claus and tugging on his fake beard and then blowing a kiss at the camera.

“Christmas is over, Santa,” she says in the clip.

“Happy Holidays xx,” she captioned the video for her more than 1.4 million followers. “Jacquemus et moi.”

Anderson subsequently shared a carousel of photos flaunting more sides of her “stunning” holiday ensemble.
Fans met the actress’ posts with praise for her outfit and for making “the greatest comeback of all time.”

First Look Inside Pam’s Netflix Documentary

When Hulu premiered Pam & Tommy, the scripted TV series dredging up the most traumatic chapter of Pamela Anderson’s career, Anderson’s name was notably absent from the production. She did not consent to or sign off on the series, meaning that, nearly 30 years after her and her then-husband Tommy Lee’s home movies were stolen and distributed to the tune of over $75 million in sales in its first year alone, according to Rolling Stone—not a dollar of which she says she received—more Hollywood forces were profiting from her stolen personal property and trauma. Anderson did not comment on the series either, but she makes her feelings about the project—and many more subjects, including her stolen tape, marriages, and media misconceptions—known in a forthcoming documentary from Emmy-nominated documentarian Ryan White (The Case Against 8, The Keepers). Titled Pamela: a love story, the unsparing documentary chronicles Anderson’s complicated journey from small-town Canadian to Playboy pinup to ’90s icon to unlikely Broadway star—plus all the romances in between.

White, the acclaimed filmmaker behind this year’s Good Night Oppy, a documentary about the Mars space rover, says he generally has little interest in making celebrity documentaries. 

“I feel like a lot of them are about brand management or selling a product, whatever that may be. And Pamela’s the opposite of that,” says White, revealing that the actor sat down with him for her interviews without makeup and answered his questions for hours on end. “From the very beginning, she was like, ‘You can ask me anything. I will talk about anything. I will be nothing but honest with you about it all.”

Anderson also gave the filmmaker decades’ worth of home movies and journals—chronicling her love life, career, and children’s coming-of-age—without even reviewing them first. “The infamous stolen tape, which we’re always very careful to call ‘the stolen tape’ and not ‘sex tape,’ was just one of hundreds of hours that they filmed,” says White, referring to Anderson and Lee. “There’s no calculation with how [Anderson] thinks about these types of things. It’s all just about being raw and honest, for better or worse. It made for a really emotional film and I’m really grateful that I got to work with someone like that.”

White says that Anderson’s sons, Brandon, 26, and Dylan, 24, convinced Anderson “to tell her story on her own terms. They adore their mother and really hate seeing her story being told by other people in a way that they don’t feel is authentic to who she is. Pamela, by nature, is an incredibly open and honest person. That’s perhaps why Pamela’s gotten burned a lot in her life, but I also think it’s what’s so lovable and infectious about her.”
