Pamela Anderson Is Loving Life at 50

It’s safe to that Pamela Anderson is loving life.

The actress opened up about turning 50 during an interview with Today‘s Megyn Kelly on Friday morning, saying she feels more liberated than ever.

“It’s hard for me to think of myself at this age, but I’m doing everything I wanted to do,” she said. “I’m living in the South of France, 99 percent of my life is devoted to my causes and my kids are grown.”

Anderson said some of the best part of growing older is watching her two sons, Dylan Jagger Lee, 19 and Brandon Thomas Lee, 21, turn into adults.

“They’re beautiful, they’re talented and they’re healthy and happy and ambitious and calculated,” she said. “All those things I don’t understand, but they do, so they’re going to be okay. So things are good. Things are really good.”

During the interview, Anderson also revealed some insight into her relationship with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

“He’s so funny, and he’s very kind. He’s very smart — he’s brilliant,” she said. “And we talk about everything. I’m there for four hours at a time, and I see him all the time. He is happy to see me when I come. He’s very sad when I leave.”

Anderson was first spotted visiting Assange at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London last October, and has written about her numerous visits to him in several lengthy posts on her website.

While Anderson describes her relationship with Assange, 45, as purely platonic, she said they are still “very close.”

“He’s really an important person to me,” she said.

Assange has claimed political asylum at the embassy since 2012 in order to avoid facing extradition to Sweden over a rape allegation he has long refuted. Assange has said he fears being sent to the U.S. to face espionage charges in relation to WikiLeaks.

“If you read through all the reports and the UN finding, there’s no evidence of rape,” Anderson told Kelly in defense of Assange.

After the interview, Kelly said Anderson’s publicist told the talk show host that the actress would be willing to marry Assange if it would get him out of his current situation in the embassy.

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

image host

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.

Pam Anderson tries to flirt her way past Secret Service

Former “Baywatch” beauty Pamela Anderson used her charms on the Secret Service to tackle Vice President Mike Pence in New York to exact a pardon for her pale paramour Julian Assange.

Spies tell Page Six that Anderson was in Manhattan filming a PSA at the JW Marriott Essex House when she learned that Pence was at the same address. The blond bombshell has said that she “loves” WikiLeaks founder Assange and visits him every two weeks in his “cramped” room at London’s Ecuadorian embassy, where he’s staying in order to evade extradition.

According to onlookers, Anderson “marched straight up to the Secret Service and asked to see Pence.”

A witness said: “The Secret Service agent practically swooned and fainted when she walked up to him and started pressing her finger on his badge. Pam said, ‘I’d like to meet the vice president.’” But, the source added, “The agent did get it together enough to politely refuse, saying the vice president was busy.”

When we reached activist Anderson for comment, she confirmed to Page Six: “I wanted to thank [Pence] for supporting protection of sources for journalists. He is heralded for co-sponsoring proposals for a ‘federal shield law,’ which I deeply admire. This action would have allowed journalists to keep confidential sources secret — even if the government requested them.” She added, “I really wanted to mention this — it is a topic close to my heart. Julian Assange deserves a pardon, and I thought I might be able to help. Julian is a hero to most of the world’s youth and free-minded thinking people. America needs to be on the right side of history.”

Assange holed up in Ecuador’s embassy to avoid Swedish rape charges, which he denied and were eventually dropped. But he’s remained in the diplomatic dungeon over claims that he could face charges in the US for document leaks.

Anderson’s PSA was for the National Limousine Association’s Ride Responsibly campaign, which is fighting for tighter background checks on app-based hailed drivers following sexual assaults.
