Pamela Anderson believes she’s ‘funny-looking’
Anderson discussed her role as a sex symbol and how she was never able to comprehend the discussion that surrounded her appearance in a recent interview on Dax Shepard’s “Armchair Expert” podcast.
“I never felt like I was any kind of great beauty, ever, no. Just a little funny-looking,” Pamela, 55, elaborated, noting that she had no fear of ageing.”I can’t wait to see myself old. I always said I’d recognise myself when I was old in the mirror,” Anderson shared with Shepard that she intended to age naturally.
“I want to let my hair go kind of natural gray, put my little straw hat on, don’t wear makeup. I mean, that’s my comfortable kind of state.”
She continued by saying that she doesn’t believe she would experience the same difficulties with ageing as ladies who are called “classic beauties,”
“I don’t think it’s as hard for me and I don’t want to chase that, and I don’t want to do all the crazy s—- to myself,” she said.
As Anderson put it, “Now it’s my kids going, ‘No, mom, you have to wear makeup,’ When I was wearing makeup before, everyone told me not to wear makeup. Now I’m old and kind of just want to let it happen, they’re like, ‘No, not yet, you just got a couple more months to promote these projects, and then you can take the makeup off.’”
Anderson and Tommy Lee are parents of boys Brandon Lee and Dylan Lee. She was married to Tommy from 1995 untill 1998.
Anderson is presently promoting her biography, Love, Pamela, which will cover her life from childhood onward, as well as her Netflix documentary, Pamela, A Love Story.
At the screening of the documentary on Monday night, she channelled her “Baywatch” character, Casey Jean Parker, by donning a red gown that mimicked the colour of her character’s bathing suit.
In an interview, the ex-“Playboy” model claimed she had “very little to do with” the documentary, adding that her son drove the project and that all she did was “open the flood gates, just so there’s just a record of truth” available to the public.
Anderson remarked, “My son made this film, Brandon, and I said my only request is that you don’t tell me what you’re looking at and what you’re doing, just do it, Anderson said. “I opened the door and said you have access to all the archives, all my diaries from when I was a kid everything, and I said, just do it. I mean I’m a person, I’m a human being, I’m imperfect.”
Anderson stated during the podcast interview that she had not seen the documentary and had no intentions to do so. She claimed she was mainly interested in “what (her) kids have to say about (her),” and she admitted that she would likely just watch those excerpts.
She elaborated that she decided to pen a memoir because she “much easier to write about something than to talk about it,”
