Pamela Anderson calls for Flemish minister to push for a ban on fur farming

Pamela Anderson has penned a letter to a Flemish minister to ask for a push for a ban on fur farming.

The long-standing animal advocate has sent a letter to Ben Weyts, Flemish Minister for Mobility, Public Works, the Vlaamse Rand, Tourism and Animal Welfare, asking for the law to ban fur farming to come into force as soon as possible.

Writing on behalf of PETA and Belgian animal-protection group GAIA, she shared: “As a passionate animal-protection advocate, I was delighted to learn from my friends at PETA and GAIA that you’ve pledged to ban fur farming in the Flemish Region. I’m concerned, however, as it’s now December, and – despite having previously announced that you’d bring forward legislation by the end of the year – still, no law prohibiting this cruel industry has been proposed.

“Every day that such legislation is delayed is a day of misery for the more than 200,000 minks on fur farms in Flanders. These wild animals are kept in cramped wire cages that deny them any opportunity to carry out their natural behavior, such as running and swimming. This confinement causes them such intense psychological distress that many go insane and begin to mutilate themselves. After a lifetime of suffering, confinement, and frustration, they’re killed for a frivolous fashion accessory that no one needs – and increasingly, no one wants.”

In the letter, Pamela called for Weyts to “honor” the commitment he had made and “propose this important piece of legislation without delay”.

She added: “Please, honor your commitment to ban fur factory farming in Flanders and propose this important piece of legislation without delay. In doing so, you’d be joining Austria, Croatia, the Netherlands, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and closer to home, the Brussels-Capital and Walloon regions of Belgium, which have already banned fur farms, recognizing that this barbaric cruelty is unacceptable in a civilized, progressive country.”

Pamela has been a passionate campaigner to ban animal fur, writing letters to the likes of Kim Kardashian West to ask them to swap to faux fur.

Pamela Anderson on her aversion to ‘anti-ageing’

At 50 years old, Pamela Anderson is still proudly playing poster girl for female sexuality and empowerment, and in partnership with luxury lingerie brand Coco de Mer has released her first collection as its brand ambassador. Designed to flatter the figure (not hard in Anderson’s case), the campaign – shot by famed photographer Rankin – sees the star taking control of the camera in a modern take on 1960s pin-ups.

To celebrate the launch of the 34-piece Pamela Loves Coco de Mer collection, we caught up with the world-famous face to talk about her attitude to ageing, beauty, love and lingerie.

How do you describe your signature beauty look and how did you reach it?

“The ‘just got out of bed’ look, mostly with smudgy black eyes. It happens naturally. I’m not great at washing my make-up off at night. Things usually get carried away before then. I like to start off classy and elegant, but my look evolves behind closed doors.”
What’s your beauty philosophy?

“Have fun and do your best. Always take time for yourself, even five minutes in the morning to feel pretty.”
When do you feel your most beautiful?

“In bed with my love [footballer Adil Rami].”

What are your thoughts on the term ‘anti-ageing’?

“I don’t think it’s a good word. It’s a gimmick to sell things. I prefer ‘without age’ – ‘ne pas avoir d’âge’.”
Do you have any beauty regrets?

“No, not really. Everyone is self-critical. [But] I wouldn’t have done anything differently.”

Have you always worn SPF?

“Never – my parents never put SPF on me. And then I found out how it polluted the ocean [Bazaar recommends biodegradable sunscreens for sea-swimming]. I never wore sunscreen on Baywatch. Just oil.”
What are your tips for doing a classic smoky eye?

“Just don’t be afraid to put it [make-up] on. Then blend away. It gets better throughout the night.”
How do you enhance your iconic brows?

“They are natural. I fill them in with pencil. I have never tattooed my make-up on, or waxed anything.”

Who is your personal beauty icon?

“My mom, my late great auntie Vie and my late grandma Rose. All beautiful, fun loving romantics. They taught me how to set a table. How to prepare myself for love. They were my biggest influences. Strong minded, independent thinkers that loved to be sexy and in love.”
What is your favourite fragrance?

“Coco de Mer Roseravished Oil – I pour it all over me. My boyfriend loves to inhale me… it is our scent, not just mine.”

What are your must-have Coco de Mer products?

“I love it all. Coco de Mer are the perfect combination of sexy and naughty that I like. Blindfolds, toys and lots of body oil – I’m addicted.”
Does wearing quality lingerie make you feel more beautiful?

“I love lingerie and so does my boyfriend. Men appreciate it even more than we think. Tease your man into [getting you] a sexy gift for Christmas – something he wants to see you in. Make it playful and daring for a holiday you’ll never forget. Who knows what tomorrow may bring. Be joyful and take risks, [it’s] the best adrenaline.”

Pamela Confesses Why She Always Breaks the Number One Skin Care Rule

Ask any dermatologist (which we do, constantly) and they will tell you the number-one thing you can do for your skin is use sunscreen. It reduces the risk of skin cancer and serves as a barrier to protect skin from the damaging effects of the sun (like skin discoloration and prematurely aging skin). But not everyone agrees with the often-lauded benefits of using sunscreen, including former Baywatch babe Pamela Anderson, who recently confessed that she has never worn SPF—not even during her days running on the beach in that famous red one-piece.

In a recent Q&A with Harper’s Bazaar, the 50-yeaer-old starlet and outspoken animal activist was asked if she always wears SPF and her answer was surprising: “Never—my parents never put SPF on me. And then I found out how it polluted the ocean. I never wore sunscreen on Baywatch. Just oil.”

It may seem shocking to hear that a former sun-worshipper like Anderson never uses sun protection, but she’s not alone. According to a survey conducted by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention in 2013, the majority of Americans do not regularly use sunscreen to protect themselves from harmful UV rays. Despite years of public health messages, only about one third of Americans said they use sunscreen regularly. With so many new options available in today’s sunscreen market, there are plenty of eco-friendly choices to choose from these days, so there’s something for everyone—even the most famous bombshell TV lifeguard.
