The transformation of a vixen! Pamela Anderson has grown from a young girl with huge hopes of being a model to one of Hollywood’s most powerful sex symbols.
Anderson, who was born in British Columbia, Canada, was found when she was 22 years old and wearing a Labatt’s Beer T-shirt on a Jumbotron at a British Columbia Lions football game. She drew the brewing company’s attention and was hired as a spokesmodel. Anderson was shortly called to audition for Playboy, and the magazine’s October 1989 issue featured her as the cover girl. She went on to model for the magazine for 22 years, longer than any other model in the history of the journal.
After she was sexually abused as a child, Anderson told Us Weekly in 2018 that modeling for Playboy was therapeutic for her.
“As a kid, I was excruciatingly bashful. Playboy gave me confidence as a young girl. She remarked at the time, “It literally saved my life.” “I was feeling really imprisoned within and longed to get out.” It was a watershed moment for me, and I met artists, activists, and gentlemen there. It’s been a wild and crazy existence.”
Anderson’s first notable acting job was as Lisa, Tim Taylor’s (played by Tim Allen) first assistant, in the ABC sitcom Home Improvement in 1991. After two seasons on the show, she moved on to the role of C.J. Parker on Baywatch a year later. Anderson was one of the show’s longest-serving cast members, appearing on the show for five seasons from 1992 to 1997.
The actress didn’t have to worry about getting the job because the show’s producers were desperate to cast her.
In an interview with the Pamela Anderson Foundation in 2018, she said, “I’ve been requested to audition for Baywatch multiple times since I was in Playboy.” “However, I didn’t enjoy driving in L.A. I’d never had an audition before. As a result, I never went. Until I tagged along with a friend one day. Both of us were recruited on the spot. Before I even came in the door, they stated I was famous. “I’m well-known for not showing up.”
Anderson’s turbulent personal life later came into the spotlight as she became renowned for high-profile romances with Kid Rock, Rick Salomon, and Tommy Lee, with whom she shares sons Brandon and Dylan.

Totally Adulterated In a 2014 interview with Elle, the Days of Our Lives actress discussed how she explained her sex-driven work to her two sons as they grew older. “I just had to say, ‘I’m sorry if I’ve embarrassed you,’ she explained. “I’m sorry if I’ve made your lives unpleasant in any way, shape, or form.” “I never intended for it to happen. I had no idea that one day my children would suffer as a result of it. ‘Your parents are your parents, and we’re not going to change,’ I added. ‘You know, Dad is Dad, and I’m me.’

Romantic with no hope In the mid-1980s, Anderson met Jon Peters at the Playboy Mansion. The couple started dating and moved in together in Los Angeles, but they finally broke up due to their 22-year age gap. In 2019, they reunited and married in a private ceremony in Malibu in January 2020. Anderson broke the news of their breakup 12 days later.
The pair was never formally married, according to a source at the time. In a May 2020 interview with the New York Times, Anderson confirmed their relationship.
She stated at the time, “I wasn’t married.” “No. There was a moment that came and passed, but there was no wedding, no marriage, no nothing. It’s as if it never occurred. That strikes me as odd.”
In May 2020, she told the New York Times that she “wasn’t married” to Peters. “No. I’m a romantic. I think I’m an easy target. And I think people just live in fear. I don’t know what all that was about, but I think fear really played a lot into it.”
Broadway Baby In March 2022, Anderson announced that she would be making her Broadway debut as Roxie Hart in Chicago for a limited run, beginning on April 12, 2022. “Playing Roxie Hart is a dream fulfilled,” she said at the time, while sharing her excitement to take on the role. “Performing [Bob Fosse’s choreography], you don’t have time to get in your head. You can’t dance, sing and think at the same time. There is a freedom, a unique joy in knowing it’s all about the work. Playing Roxie Hart is a sweet escape for me.”
