Creator / Pamela Anderson

Pamela Anderson (born July 1, 1967) is a Canadian-American actress, model, producer, author, activist and former showgirl, known for her roles on the television series Home Improvement, Baywatch, V.I.P., and Stacked. She was chosen as a Playmate of the Month for Playboy magazine in February 1990 and has posed for the magazine multiple times since (she has also appeared on the cover of Playboy more than any other woman). For a time, she was known as Pamela Anderson Lee (or Pamela Lee) after marrying Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee. She also did the voice over work for the titular character in Stripperella, an animated series by Stan Lee, which also used her likeness.

She is considered by many to be one of the biggest sex symbols of the 1990s. Since Pamela Anderson’s nakedness has appeared in Playboy the most times (14 covers and 15 spreads), they asked her to be on the cover of their final 2015 nude issue (apparently too many people do read it for the articles). Not bad going for a 48-year-old Canadian rose.

Some of her films:

Tropes Associated with Pamela Anderson

  • Acting for Two: In Snapdragon (which she later described as "a bad movie (she) was thrown into").
  • Action Girl: Pamela has always been athletic, and in Baywatch she performed most of her own stunts (in fact, when she first joined the cast of Baywatch she didn't even know that the use of stunt doubles was common in the entertainment industry).
  • Buxom Is Better:
    • After her first appearance in Playboy Magazine, Pamela Anderson got breast implants as a way of boosting her popularity. It worked, and she became a major celebrity largely because of her "assets."
    • In the late-1990s, Pam had her breast implants surgically removed because she wanted to be taken more seriously as an actress (in her own words, she was tired of her "all boobs, no brains" image). It soon became apparent to her that she was never going to taken seriously as an actress and her sex appeal was her biggest strength, so she had new implants put in that were even larger than her old ones and returned to playing buxom fan service characters.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: Has been frequently photographed going about her day with nothing on her feet; to an event, walking her dog, shopping, even just filling up her car. Skip to page 10 here and observe
  • Eating the Eye Candy: Played with via literal inversion. She was the eye candy in a music video, but she ate the men who were enjoying her.
  • Everyone Loves Blondes: Pam's hair is naturally brown. She started dying it blonde when she was 20 years old and has been doing it ever since.
  • Femme Fatale: Her role in Barb Wire.
  • Fourth Date Marriage: Pamela Anderson met Tommy Lee at a party in February 1995. They got married four days later on a beach in Cancun, Mexico.
  • Friends with Benefits: Although Pam and Tommy Lee divorced in 1998, they remained cordial with each other, and Pam mentioned in an interview that they also continued having sex with each other for years after their divorce.
  • Giant Woman: Played one in a music video, where the band got to climb all over her. She was also a maneater.
  • Has a Type: Pam definitely seems to have a thing for rock stars. She married Tommy Lee and they remained Friends with Benefits for years after their divorce. She also married Kid Rock, and appeared in a sex tape with Bret Michaels from Poison.
    • During the Comedy Central Roast of Pamela Anderson, one comedian quipped "she's fucked more musicians than Napster."
  • Home Porn Movie: In 1995 a sex video of Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee was stolen from their home and sold to a pornographic video distributor. The Lees sued the distributor to stop the video from being sold, but failed. There have also been rumors that in the mid-2000s, a porn studio offered Pam a million dollars to star in a professionally-shot porn movie, but she declined.
  • Irony: Is a vegan, but jumped at the chance to be a giantess that devours male musicians alive.
  • Like Brother and Sister: David Hasselhoff has claimed that he's never watched the Pamela Anderson/Tommy Lee sex tape because he views Pam as a sister.
  • Literal Man Eater: Not in real life (as far as we know) but she did play one in the music video for "Miserable." In the vid she is wearing a white and black bikini and GIGANTIC platform heels and provides plenty of Fanservice and Male Gaze but at the end of the video devours all the male band members.
  • Ms. Fanservice: The main reason why people watched Baywatch was probably hot people running on the beach in swim suits and being wet in Slo Mo. Ms Anderson took the cake. In fact her whole career was built on being this.
  • Name's the Same: WWE's developmental show WWE NXT includes a male wrestler named CJ Parker, which was the name of her character on Baywatch.
  • Professional Wrestling:
  • Rape as Backstory: A tragic real-life example. In a 2014 interview, Pamela revealed that she had been sexually abused on multiple occasions during her childhood and teenage years, and that her love of animals is largely due to the fact they've never caused her pain like humans have.
  • Roman à Clef: Her 2004 novel, Star.
  • Self-Deprecation: Pam seems quite aware of the fact that her looks, and not her acting ability, are the reason she's famous. And she's not above poking a little fun at herself.
    "My breasts have had an incredible career. I've just tagged along for the ride."
  • Significant Birth Date: Pamela Anderson already appeared in Canadian newspapers right after her birth because she was born exactly 100 years after the formation of the Dominion of Canada at 0.01 a.m. and therefore became Canada's "centennial baby".
  • Spit Out a Shoe: Does this in the music video for Miserable after slurping up the band's lead guitarist.
  • World's Most Beautiful Woman: Dancing with the Stars called her "The World's Sexiest Woman" in promos for the season in which she competed.
