Pam reveals what happened to her Baywatch Bathing Suit

When “Baywatch” fans think of the popular TV series from the ’90s, chances are flashbacks of Pamela Anderson strutting on the beach in her iconic high-cut red swimsuit immediately come to mind.

Her role as C.J. Parker contributed to Anderson becoming a household name, and in an exclusive interview with Fox News, the 52-year-old actress and model revealed she not only still owns the memorable number, but in fact, still fits in it, too.

“Oh, I have one right here in my top drawer! It still fits,” Anderson said.

“I have worn it on occasion just to be funny with my friends,” she continued, adding that she’s been known to hop out of her pool or shower with the skin-tight number on “to try to give them mouth to mouth!”

“Mostly,” though, Anderson said, she can be spotted at home in the one-piece “just around the living room.”

Anderson appeared on the popular TV series for a total of five seasons from 1992-1997. She later appeared in the 2003 film spinoff titled “Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding.”

While she is known as an international sex symbol, Anderson said she can relate to her fans who often question her for advice about sex positivity and confidence. She says her key to allowing herself to be vulnerable in a sexy outfit or posing for a glamorous picture is as simple as just “being you.”

“I was painfully, painfully shy but you probably won’t believe it,” Anderson shared. “But I got over it. I really hated that feeling. I realized that nobody cares as much about what you’re wearing or what you look like other than you. Nobody cares as much as you do. You’re your own worst critic. You always feel good if you just do it, just do something you really want to do. Afterward, you’re so glad you did that. I always say paint your own picture and what you want your life to look like and who you want to be because society tells us we have to be a certain way and we really don’t have to be. There’s really no rules.”

Anderson has plenty more advice to share. With impressive modeling and acting careers already under her belt, Anderson dished to Fox News about her new role as the Creative Director at Jasmin, a new webcamming site whose slogan is “Real people. Real connections.” The website allows Anderson to connect with strangers around the world who are seeking advice about romance, sex positivity and relationships. From her home on Vancouver Island, Anderson said the role is allowing her to flex some of her creative muscles in a way she hasn’t before.

“50 million people a day go to this site so I thought it was a great opportunity to talk about anything people feel passionate about from activism, to health and beauty and romance and dating and just anything you can think of,” Anderson said of the new platform. “They’re definitely pioneers and paving new ground and we’ll see where it goes. It’s fun.”

She’s kicking off her new role by working at home in quarantine like so many others during the coronavirus pandemic. While she’s not afraid to have her own fashion show for fun, Anderson shared what she often wears most of the time when she’s at home alone.

“My whole wardrobe is basically silks, slips and sweaters,” she said. “So I’m in pajamas all the time!”

Pamela Anderson on being exactly where she wants to be

Baywatch might be celebrating its 30th birthday this year, but for series star Pamela Anderson it seems like it was just yesterday when she was running around in that iconic high-waisted red swimsuit that helped make her a star.

“I didn’t know that,” she replies when asked about the popular TV series’ upcoming anniversary. “Time is an illusion.”

Originally filmed in 35mm, Baywatch is now available in high definition on Amazon Prime Video with 350 brand new songs added to the score to help draw in younger viewers.

The show made the B.C.-born Anderson a household name and turned her, along with co-stars Carmen Electra, Yasmine Bleeth, Nicole Eggert and Erika Eleniak, into overnight stars. It also helped jumpstart the stalled career of David Hasselhoff and saw itself get the big screen treatment with Dwayne Johnson in the lead in 2017.

“Baywatch was the best job in the world,” the former Playboy Playmate says. “It doesn’t feel that long ago.”

In addition to starring as C.J. Parker for five seasons on the long-running show, which at one point was being watched by over a billion people worldwide every week, Anderson went on to star in a big screen adaption of the Dark Horse comic Barb Wire and Scary Movie 3. She continued to fill her resume with appearances on Dancing with the Stars and other reality-TV shows.

Earlier this year, she popped up alongside her son Brandon Thomas Lee in The Hills: New Beginnings.

Of course there have been high-profile romances — to Motley Crue’s Tommy Lee and Kid Rock — and a rumoured dalliance with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. There was also a bad split with soccer star Adil Rami that ended in accusations of abuse earlier this year. But at 52, the outspoken animal rights activist, who landed her first Vogue magazine cover in June, is exactly where she wants to be.

Below, the mother-of-two, who shares sons Brandon, 22, and Dylan, 21, with ex-husband Tommy Lee, shared lessons she has learned during her three decades in the public eye.

You were discovered in 1989 at a B.C. Lions game when you were spotted in a Labatt T-shirt. Was that the T-shirt that changed your life?

I believe in destiny.

If you were stuck on a desert island, what three movies and what three albums would you want to keep you company?

I guess I’d rather take a stack of books and my dog.

Superhero movies are all the rage. Are you more a Marvel fan or DC fan?

I don’t know what that even means. I was a friend and a subject of Stan Lee — that was an honour. He was a true visionary. Although (the adult animated comedy series) Stripperella may not have been his finest work.

You’ve been on the cover of Playboy more than any other model and you first appeared in 1989. How important was that in your career?

Playboy was my university. It’s where I learned about art and philanthropy. (Playboy founder) Hugh Hefner was a big influence (on my life). But he was also a pioneer and a human and civil rights activist. I believe in living your fantasy and doing good in the world.

What was your most memorable celebrity encounter?

None — people are people. I’ve met amazing people, celebrity or not. It’s a funny world. People that like celebrities, I guess I’ve never been one of them, but to meet people one on one is interesting. It connects us. Human connection is a lost art.

You are known for speaking out on animal rights issues. How did this cause become one so close to your heart?

I relate to vulnerability and I love animals. They don’t lie and we can learn a lot from them.

You are very political and have political opinions. People probably ask you all the time about Donald Trump. I want to know what you think of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau?

I think less and less of Mr. Trump. He’s not on my radar. I think Mr. Trudeau has a great opportunity. He could be the hero we need in the world. But he needs to be strong enough and not subservient to the U.S. He also needs to make the climate crisis top priority. A world leader must take this role. How cool would it be if it’s Canada?

What was the best advice you ever got?

Be yourself. Humans aren’t perfect. That’s the sexiest part. You have to be brave to be in love — you have to be brave to get off the couch.

Along with that, what’s the worst advice you ever got?

To do something for money or for fame that meant going against things I believed in.

What would young Pamela think of where she ended up?

I think I’m exactly where I need to be. I’ve come full circle. It’s a miracle I made it back alive. Back to my roots on Vancouver Island, where I grew up. It’s the most beautiful place on Earth and Canadians are truly the coolest people I know.

Last question — is it better to take the road less traveled or the well-worn terrain where lots of people have tread before?

Blaze your own path.

‘Baywatch’ alum Pamela Anderson reveals she still fits in iconic swimsuit

Pamela Anderson has been the cover girl for the high-waist red swimsuit ever since her character immortalized the look on the set of the hit ‘90s coming-of-age series, “Baywatch.”

It’s been 22 years since Anderson sported her surfside pinup look on camera, but the blonde bombshell revealed that not only can she still fit into the red one-piece, she also wears it from time to time – depending on the mood – to surprise her dates.

“I jump in the shower with a bathing suit and then jump on them wherever they are in the house, soaking wet,” Anderson, 52, told the New York Times in an interview discussing the history of the signature red swimsuit.

The mother of two said many of the garments were specifically fitted for each performer and noted that hers was actually cut much too small for her frame, so she simply conformed it to her body.

“Some people bring me bathing suits to sign autographs on and they are these big bathing suits and I say, ‘Listen, my bathing suit was tiny,’” Anderson told the Times. “It just stretched and pulled onto your body.”

Along with Anderson, Carmen Electra also opened up to the publication about how she managed to land a role in the 1997 classic series, adding that she had rushed over from the set of MTV’s “Singled Out” and was unaware going into her audition that she would be asked to try on her own “Baywatch” red swimsuit during the audition reading opposite David Hasselhoff.

“I was like, ‘Oh, I hope they don’t see that,’” Electra said of having had unshaven legs in her swimsuit.

However, while Anderson still cosplays with her legendary “Baywatch” swimsuit, the 47-year-old Electra said she simply chooses to display it in her home and always welcomes the conversation it sparks from visitors.

“I have my suit framed and when people come over to the house, they get really excited,” she said. “It just has this effect on people. It was empowering.”

In 2017, the former Playboy playmate told Fox News that if a “Baywatch” were to ever return as a reboot, she would happily dive back in and pick up wherever her character’s life is.

“Absolutely,” she said. “I would do it. I would do it in a heartbeat. I might hit the gym for like three weeks, but yes, I’ll do it!”

As for why the “Baywatch” swimsuit styles have stood the test of time, Anderson offered her own take.

“Maybe it was the people in the bathing suit that made it more exciting,” she explained, before pointing out to the Times that the show embodied a specific era of youth and innocence and rebelliousness that she felt the suit continues to symbolize. “And we were kind of the California dream.”
