Pamela Anderson on never wearing leather again: ‘I call myself a naughty vegan’

I decided to become vegetarian when I was a child. My father was a hunter and one day I found a dead deer, without its head, hanging outside our home, dripping blood into a bucket. I cried for days. It wasn’t hard for me to give up something so cruel. I got my father to stop hunting, too.

I call myself a naughty vegan. I live in France, I eat croissants. I do the best I can, but I’m not a dictator. It’s a radical choice to be vegan, so I’m not so strict. Stella McCartney and Paul and Linda created Meatless Mondays, so even if you don’t eat meat on Mondays, you are still doing something good. If you’re Canadian, like me, and grew up in the coastal areas, sometimes you think if you’re vegetarian, you can still eat fish.

You learn as you go along; you make changes. I once promoted a fur line in Russia, where the market is very real because of the weather. And Barb Wire was all leather – I just didn’t think of it at the time. Today I wouldn’t wear fur, and I don’t want to glamorise it by wearing faux, but it’s still better than wearing someone’s else’s skin. I sent faux fur coats to Melania Trump and Kim Kardashian, and both have sworn off fur since. On my sons’ modelling contracts now, it says no fur. They’re both vegan, too, but I never forced it on them.

I started with animals and moved to environmental causes with Vivienne Westwood. She and I are kindred spirits, and I’ve learned so much from her. Her message is more in-depth than the hashtag movement; you have to go further than that – we can control what we wear, what we eat. Fashion has so many new fabrics, recycled from the pollution in the ocean. You just have to be engaged with the world.

As for thinking you’ve done something because you’ve worn a slogan T-shirt or used a hashtag? You still have to take action. I’ve written to governments, delivered a petition to stop bullfighting and protested about foie gras in front of the French government.

I never thought I’d be a style icon. Early on in my career I wasn’t really a fan of clothes. I never thought much about the red swimsuit I wore on Baywatch. It was a beach show and I thought everyone was watching it for the message – it was sweet! I don’t think any of us was trying to act sexy. Maybe the producers had that in mind, but we weren’t thinking about it.

How I dress now is how I’ve always wanted to: in feminine, simple clothing, nothing hard-edged. I don’t like black; I love colours and dresses, and being comfortable. There was a time in my life when everyone was doing everything for me – even my husbands were dressing me. I don’t know where I am in my career. I was going to say I’m glad I’m at the end of it, so I don’t have to be in front of the camera for too much longer. But for the first time in my life I don’t have an army of people making decisions for me. I can finally decide for myself.

Pamela Anderson Opens Up About Being Romantically Linked to Julian Assange: ‘It Is Sexism’

Pamela Anderson is shedding more light on the nature of her relationship to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

The actress sat down for an interview with The Daily Beast where she opens up about Assange, the whistleblower who has been taking refuge in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London for the past six years. Anderson has spoken in support of him several times and hinted at them being more than just friends, but seemed to shut down those rumors in the interview.

“It is sexism,” Anderson said of always being linked romantically to powerful men by tabloids. “It’s all crazy. It’s funny how your relationships do get reduced to some kind of sexual relationship. I think the world of Julian, I really do, and I think he’s an important person that needs to be protected, and that bringing any attention to him helps keep him safe.”

Anderson also gave more insight into their first meeting and how the two came to be friends. The actress says Assange heard about how she included him in one of her poems, and asked mutual friend Vivienne Westwood to introduce them. But when the two women got the dates mixed up, Anderson showed up to the Embassy on her own and met Assange one-on-one.

“I went to the embassy, buzzed the buzzer, said who I was, and we had this long conversation,” she explains. “There were a lot of people in the room and then slowly it was just him and I. Then I came a few months later and started bringing him vegan food and made sure he was exercising, because I was worried about his health—his skin was transparent. I learned a lot about him and we have a lot of mutual friends, so it’s nice to keep his spirits up.”

Although she maintains a friendship with Assange, Anderson has been dating French football player Adil Rami, who won the World Cup with his team on Sunday in Moscow. The actress has been seen supporting her boyfriend in Russia and attended his semifinal match against Belgium last week.

Pam leaves a club after New York Fashion Week show

She was the ultimate pin-up girl thanks to her head-turning role on Baywatch.

And it seems that Pamela Anderson is still the ultimate party girl.

The stunning blonde, 50, had done the rounds as New York Fashion Week kicked off on Wednesday night.

Pamela hit the town and headed to the star-studded launch of Pat McGrath’s make-up collection.

She slipped her famous figure into a plunging little black dress, which showed off her legs in all their glory.

The star appeared to have had a good night, looking a tad partied out as she headed home.

Earlier in the evening she had mingled with another sex symbol, Kim Kardashian, at the Vivienne Westwood And Juergen Teller exhibition opening.

The dynamic duo were grinning like Cheshire cats as they posed alongside the fashion designer’s husband Andreas Kronthaler at the showpiece New York Fashion Week event.

The bombshell arguably outshone her younger rival in a blazer, which she combined with an adventurously tight pair of leather hotpants and high heels.

She was also wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with the words, ‘Character = a bag of tools. Use it, follow your interest, become who you are.’

Pamela was the surgically enhanced sex bomb of her time, and the dynamic duo have even both appeared in Playboy, though the Barb Wire star has appeared on more covers of the magazine than any other model.

The 90s favourite also starred in a television hit of her own, though the network hit Baywatch, in which she played sexy lifeguard CJ Parker.

At one time the David Hasselhoff vehicle was the most watched TV show in the world.

The pair also have a couple other notable things in common, with just one example being the fact they have both been married to famous musicians.

The event itself was celebrating the long-time collaboration of designer Vivienne Westwood and photographer Juergen Teller.

Speaking about her partnership with her long-time snapper Vivienne said: ‘Juergen’s got something very rare.

‘He gets to the root of the matter every time when he takes a photograph.’

As well as a huge selection of images, the show explores the campaigns and collections Vivienne and Juergen created together.

The show is open at 14 E. 55th Street in New York until October.
