Biography And Filmography:

An attractive model and former Playboy Magazine playmate, actress Pamela Anderson  shot onto the Hollywood scene in the early 1990’s and stayed there. A star of the television smash hit, “Baywatch” (1989-2001), Anderson transitioned from modeling into acting and the world followed her many love life stories with boyfriends and husbands Tommy Lee and Kid Rock. A leaked sex tape with her and Tommy Lee did nothing to slow down this one-woman sensation. After fifteen years of celebrity status, Anderson rose to the next level of fame by becoming something even bigger – a pop culture icon – and all of this with few actual movie or musical credits. 

This manifestation of her as “Superstar Sex Symbol” worked as the running plot of the 2006 comedy “Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.” Through many years, breast enlargements and PETA protests, she always captivated the public, that viewed the large breasts and gorgeous actress as America’s romanticized blonde bombshell.

Born on July 1, 1967 in Ladysmith, British Columbia, Canada, Pamela Anderson grew up in the city of Vancouver. She was discovered while minding her own business at a football game. At halftime, a network camera crew was panning the crowd, looking for someone to embarrass on the stadium’s giant screen, when they saw the gorgeous 22-year old bombshell in the bleachers, wearing a skin tight Labatt’s Beer shirt.


After seeing her image on-screen, the crowd broke into a cheer, and that was all Labatt’s Beer needed to see. Within weeks, Anderson was hired by the beer company, offering her the job of "The Blue Zone Girl" – Labatt's official spokesmodel. Soon, she decided to get her first breast implants. From there, her cup size grew larger for years, before stopping at a 36DD. In 1999, she downsized her implants to a less peculiar C-cup. And with that… a superstar sexy celebrity was born.

Relocating to Los Angeles in the late 1980’s, and within months was offered an opportunity lots of young women only dream of – the chance to pose for Playboy Magazine. Named Miss February of 1990, her issue set record sales numbers and got her the attention of television producers. Hollywood hired her to stand and look beautiful, which she did amazingly well on such shows as "Married... With Children" (1987-1997) with Christina Applegate, "Married People" (1990-91) and "Top of the Heap." (1991).

But her big break was still to come. Cast as Lisa “The Tool Time Girl” on the top rated Tim Allen comedy, "Home Improvement” (1991-99) with Jonathan Taylor Thomas, her body stood out as she traded jokes with Allen while dressed in a tool belt and short-shorts. In 1993, two years into her “Home Improvement” job, she received the break that would change her life – a regular role on the drama, “Baywatch.”

Taking the role proved to be the smartest decision of her career. If her star was rising before, “Baywatch” sent it into overdrive. For five seasons, Pamela Anderson personified the California Girl every week in the form of lifeguard C.J. Parker. She helped boost the show to the top of the ratings and redefined breast television for a whole new generation of young boys. By the time she left the show, it had become the most watched television program in history, seen in 155 countries and translated into 40 languages. 

In 1997 – after five years of slow motion breast heaving rescues and sexy CPR’s – an era came to an end. But not forever - six years later Pamela was convinced into returning for a guest appearance in the 2003 made-for-television movie, “Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding.” The show had been a Hollywood wonder, helping to launce the careers of numerous celebrities such as Yasmine Bleeth, Erika Eleniak, Gena Lee Nolin, Carmen Electra, Vanessa Angel and Jenny McCarthy.

Seeing movie features as her next logical career step, Pamela Anderson took starring roles in two straight-to-video thrillers, "Snapdragon" (1993) and "Raw Justice" (1994). Her big-screen debut did not come until she signed on to star in the action feature, "Barb Wire" (1996). Based on a popular book of the same name, she played the film’s lead hero – a tattooed, rubber dressed mercenary who took no prisoners and looked hot doing it.

Returning to the world of television, Anderson was next an executive producer on her television series, the action thriller, “V.I.P” (1998-2002). In "V.I.P", she played Vallery Irons, a small-town girl who becomes famous after saving the life of an actor – and starts her own security firm. 

Her name stayed front and center in the tabloid press, thanks to her high-profile personal life. After being romantically linked throughout the 1990's with a series of bad-boy celebrities – including Scott Baio, David Charvet, Poison front man Bret Michaels, and pro surfer Kelly Slater, among others – she finally settled down with Tommy Lee, drummer for the heavy metal band, Motley Crue. The couple got married on a beach in Mexico in 1995.  The couple’s wild affair would produce two children – Brandon Thomas in 1996 and Dylan Jagger in 1997.

Her marriage to Lee did not come without public relations nightmares. Wherever the couple went, paparazzi and press were everywhere, ending in more than one exchange between Lee and photographers outside of nightclubs and bars. In June of 1996, word leaked that a homemade porno videotape starring the two had been found. The video – which was stolen by a worker who was renovating their home – also included footage of their beachside wedding ceremony and ensuing sex. When the tape emerged for sale on the internet, they quickly moved to stop its distribution, but it was too late. The couple filed a $100 million copyright infringement suit against the Internet Entertainment Group (IEG), the company that distributed the video, to claim a share of the profits of their stolen video. Following appeals, they were awarded $2 million dollars plus legal fees.

In 1998, Tommy was arrested following a domestic dispute at their home in Malibu, in which Pamela Anderson accused him of kicking her in the head while she held their son. She declined hospital treatment. After pleading no contest, Lee was sentenced to four months in prison. While he was serving his time, the couple divorced. Over the years, they reconciled a number of times, but it always ended in failure.

The troubled actress then became an outspoken champion for animal rights. A celebrity spokesperson for the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), Pamela volunteered her time and money to charitable causes, including a famous nude photo with the words "I'd Rather Go Naked than Wear Fur".

During March of 2002, Anderson announced that she’d been diagnosed with Hepatitis C – an incurable viral disease that affects the liver. How she was infected was unclear; but the popular belief was that it most likely resulted from sharing tattoo needles with her husband. 

With the divorce behind her and "V.I.P." coming to an end, Pamela Anderson announced she was taking a year off to focus on her health and to spend more time with her children. Even so, Anderson stayed in the public eye by writing a regular column for Jane magazine. She also teamed up with Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee to create the animated series "Stripperella" (2003), about a sexy super hero based on her own likeness. The actress lent her voice to Stripperella, as well as her alter ego, the shy Erotica Jones. 

In 2005, Pamela returned to television as the star of the spoof titled Fox comedy, "Stacked" (2005 -06), where she played Skyler Dayton, a blond bombshell who works at a book store. The show was quickly cancelled.

Despite the frustration of her cancelled series, Pamela continued to make guest appearances in movies. In the 2006 mockumentary, “Borat,” she played a central role as the object of Kazakhstani journalist Borat Sagdiyev’s fondness (played by Sacha Baron Cohen.) Though she appeared only briefly at the end of the movie, much of the film’s plot centered on the insensitive foreign journalist’s search to find and meet the sex symbol. Throughout the promotion for Borat, the studio maintained that she was merely an unaware victim of the filmmakers.

On July 18, 2006, Pamela Anderson married her longtime friend Kid Rock. Only four months later – and only weeks after a heartbreaking miscarriage, she surprised her fans by applying for an annulment. Both sides went back and forth as to why – she claimed Kid Rock was unhappy with her look in "Borat", and Kid's side saying it was due to her heavy partying. 


Anderson continued to appear in feature films such as "Blonde and Blonder" (2007), where a comic mayhem ensues when two sexy blondes, Dee and Dawn, are mistaken as international mob killers. Next she appeared with Drake Bell in the action comedy "Superhero Movie" (2008), a send-up of superhero films, from Batman Begins to the Fantastic Four.
