Mini Bio (2)

A native of Canada, Pamela Denise Anderson was born in Ladysmith, British Columbia and later moved to the city of Vancouver. It was while she was attending a British Columbia Lions football game that Anderson was "discovered" in a most unusual way. Dressed in a Labatt's Beer T-shirt, her image was transmitted on the stadium's widescreen. The fans cheered the beautiful girl, and she was brought down to the 50-yard line and introduced to the appreciative crowd. As a result, she was signed to a commercial contract with Labatt's and became the company's Blue Zone girl. The campaign was so popular that other commercials and advertising assignments for Anderson soon followed. Due to the recognition from these commercials, she was soon approached to do her first cover for Playboy Magazine. Pamela has since gone on to grace the cover again an astounding five times, more than any other woman in the magazine's history.

With the success and recognition she garnered from Playboy, Anderson soon moved to Los Angeles, California where she spent two seasons in the top-ten ABC-TV situation comedy Home Improvement (1991), as Lisa, the Tool Time Girl. It was on "Home Improvement" that she captured the attention and affection of viewing audiences, nationwide. At the same time, Anderson was cast as C.J. Parker on the internationally successful series Baywatch (1989), but because of the impossible scheduling requirements of working on two series, she eventually left "Home Improvement" and remained full-time on "Baywatch". She now stars on one of the most phenomenally popular television programs of all time, which is seen in 140 countries, worldwide. Recently, Anderson made the transition into the feature film arena, starring in Dark Horse Entertainment's action comedy Barb Wire (1996). In addition, Anderson was featured in the CBS movie-of-the-week Come Die with Me: A Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer Mystery (1994), a hip and updated Mike Hammer mystery, co-starring Rob Estes.

Pamela was married to Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee, and they had two children, Brandon and Dylan. However, the couple divorced in early 1998. Both have had a rocky relationship in the past and continued to date on and off, but then headed to court over custody of their two sons. Meanwhile, she starred in and produced her television series V.I.P. (1998), which ran for four seasons until 2002. During the spring of 2001, she dated singer Kid Rock, but they broke up in the fall of 2003. Eventually, she reunited with ex-husband Tommy Lee after she found out she was diagnosed with hepatitis C, which she contracted when they shared the same needle for their tattoo. By the fall of 2003, the new network Spike-TV launched her latest action series, a cartoon, developed by Stan Lee, called Stripperella (2003). She is an active participant in various organizations, including PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), and dedicates her time by taking part in religious practices with children from around the world.

Personal Quotes (10)

Making love in the morning got me through morning sickness. I found I could be happy and throw up at the same time.
What I know in life runs the gamut of the "feminist experience". The true meaning of feminism is this: to use your strong womanly image to gain strong results in society.
I don't really think about anything too much. I live in the present. I move on. I don't think about what happened yesterday. If I think too much, it kind of freaks me out.
I don't recommend surgery at all. Women's bodies are beautiful as they are, and I've had a love/hate relationship with my breasts my whole life. (New York Post)
I am the ultimate California girl, which is funny, being that I'm Canadian.
My doctor says, "You have hepatitis C." And I go, "Okay, how do I get rid of it?". And he's like, "You can't. This is what you're going to die from." I was in the middle of shooting V.I.P. (1998); I didn't know what to do. This wash came over my body. And then the doctor says, "Do you know how you got it?". I said "No". And he said, "Your husband never told you he had it?". It kind of threw me for a while. Obviously, it's a hard thing to tell someone, but I wish he could have had the nerve to tell me. Obviously, his ego was more important than my life.
It's terrible because people see stars like J.Lo and Beyoncé wearing fur and they don't think about the cruelty that goes into it.
Natural beauty takes at least two hours in front of a mirror.
It's great to be a blonde. With low expectations, it's very easy to surprise people.
[on leaving the "Dancing on Ice" competition due to a dress malfunction] I stumbled. My boobs fell out. It's common in my life.
